Soprano Eileen Farrell, in a centennial event, gave the ninth Barbara Woods Morgan Memorial Concert in the Students’ Building. Miss Farrell’s program included classical works by Ludwig von Beethoven, Franz Schubert, Carl Maria von Weber, Claude Debussy and Francis Poulenc. She concluded the recital with five contemporary works: “The Lamb,” by Clifford Shaw, “Linstead Market,” by Arthur Benjamin, “Where is Dis Road A-leading Me To,” by Harold Arlen and “The Winds” and “I Thank You, God, For Most This Amazing Day,” by Celius Dougherty. The text for the last song was by E. E. Cummings.

The Barbara Woods Morgan Memorial Fund was established by the Class of 1935 and other friends of Barbara Woods Morgan ’35, who died on December 6, 1936, in recognition of her deep interest in music. The first memorial concert took place on March 6, 1938.

Eileen Farell made her debut at the Metropolitan Opera on December 6, 1960.
