'I1le three opening concerts of the second annual Brevard Music festival last week end were deelared highly successful by association officials. Capacity aud!路 eDeeS of 800 packed the rustic summer theater of the TransJ'}.

nnia Music camp to bear the huge 85-piece symphony orchestra and the three outstanding solo artists. In concluding the series of seven e(lncerts, this week end will feature Patricia Travers, young concert violinist, who will be beard Friday night,. and an operatic program Sunday afternoon by Julius Huehn. baritone, and Edna Phillips, coloratura soprano. The orchestra will give a free children's concert Saturday afternoon. and will also be heard alone OD the Saturday night program of contemporary music. Superb Planlst The festival orchestra, under the baton of James Christian pfohl, opened the all Beethoven program Friday night with "Overture to Egmont." The program continued with Eugene Istomin, superb piano soloist, playing with the orchestra Beethoven's entire "Conserto No. 4 in G Major." Tbe second portion of the program by the I symphony orchestra consisted of 4< Sympb.fllY No. 2 in D Major, by Beethoven, and was broadcast over ti _Tarn To Page EI.... (From Frvnt Page, Seeond Section) station WWNC, Asheville. Record路 ings were made to be played over other stations in the South. Brevard's own Adelaide Van Wey captured the audience Saturday night with her excellent contralto voice in a program or folk songs. Well-known for her radio and stage appearances and recordings, Miss Van Wey has specialized in Creole and American folk songs.

Sang Folk Songs

Included on -her program for Saturday evening were "La Belle "Compere Latin," Francaise," "Jack O'Diamonds", and "Bambele," in her folk song collection, and the spirituals. "Deep River," "Many ~ Gone," and "Nobody Knows the Trouble I've Seen." The festival association was indeed fortunate in aecuring internationally famed, Nan Merriman, mezzo-soprano. for the Sunday afternoon concert. Frances Yeend, origiDally scheduled, waa umble to come due to a sudden illness. Wearing a beautiful yellow gown which blended with her bright aub1ll'D. hair, Miss Merriman's beauty was surpassed only by her excellent voice and aparkliDg personality. Sbe aug "0 Mio Fernando from. La Favorita," the Habanera from "carmen," and Gavotte from "Mignon." After thunderous I\Pplause the cbltrming mezzo-soprano chose路 for her .encore "My Hero," and dedleated it to Conductor pfohl for his excellent orchestral accompaniment.
