The Philomel Club of Warren met March 2 for a program of instrumental music titled “Duets and Dances.” Pianists Vera Finger and Joseph Dolan played “Two Slavonic Dances,” a four-hands number by Antonin Dvorak, followed by Denise Pearson playing an arrangement of “Morning Has Broken” for flute. Cathy Peterson and Kathy Neal played two duets, “Bom-Bom Boogie” by Billie Ferrell and “Spanish Dance, No. 1” by Moritz Moszkowski. Joan Eighmey, pianist, accompanied Denise Pearson and also James Pearson, cellist, with the Rondo movement from “Sonata for Cello and Piano” by Antonin Dvorak. The afternoon program was completed by Cathy Peterson and Kathy Neal playing a four-hands number by Johannes Brahams, “Hungarian Dance, No. 5” and a duet arrangement of “I Could Have Danced All Night” by Loewe.
