PERSONALITY PROFILE--A HAPPY MAN! To those of us who have known musicians as creatures of moods Up in the clouds one moment and down in the depths the next confident of their touch of genius at time, and then indespair of attaining the perfection they seek, Henry Siegl, assistant conductor and concertmaster of the Seattle Symphony Orchestra this year, is a de- cided change At least, with his charming, attractive wife at his side in The Transcript office, he looked every bit the solid citizen and family man, se- rene and confident in his profession. He gives that impression even on the concel,t stage. Like any proud father, at,mention of his children, out came snapshots of his trioMaseha, Henry Siegl a very pretty girl, blonde, likeher mother, and seventeen; Zev, fourteen, of JuniOr High School, the picture of his dad, and Simon, eleven, a handsome boy with his mother's coloring. Mrs. Siegl said that this sum- rner was a significant one for the family. She will obtain her Bach- elor of Science degree from Teacher's College, Columbia Uni- versity; Mascha graduates from high school, Zev from junior high, and Simon from elementary school. Mrs. Siegl flew here last week to watch her husband conduct the Symphony in Ernest Bloch's "Suite for Viola and Orchestra," with Milton Katims as violist, and to spend the break between se- mesters with him. Sieg] and Katims are old friends. in 1944 when Sieg I went to New York to take a refresher course, Adolph Busch who was first cell-- ist of the NBC Symphony invited him. to a "musical party." The party was at the Katims' home. In 1947, under Arturo Tosca- nini, Siegl joined the NBC Sym- phony Orchestra and remained with it until the Maestro's retire- ment, then continued with the group when it became The Sym- phony of the Air. Katims and Siegl often collab- orated in chamber music concerts in New ork and for recording sessions. Siegl was concertmaster of the New York City Ballet orhesfi-a"(he was here two years ZETA BETA TAU MOTHERS' AND WIVES' CLUB Mrs. Ralph Schoenfe]d, chair- man for the one fund-raising event of the Mother's and Wives' Club of Alpha Mu Chapter o Z,.

Lotzker 'ago when that group performed at the Orpheum), and the Knick- erbocker Chamber Players, as well as a member of the Saiden- berg Sinfonietta. He wash menx= bet of and recorded with the Galimir Quartet and the Gullet Quartet. Siegl has qualities which should make him a wonderful perma- nent resident of Seattle. He is an avid baseball fan, a90-odd shoot- er at golf, and "an enthusiastic sa] .mon eater" He hopes to have the opportunity of fishing in the Bay with his boys. Both he and his wife are entranced with the idea of spending happy Sundays next winter with their family among the skiers at Snoqualmie. He couldn't risk accidents with his hands and wrists of course, but said he would mush around in their vicinity on snowshoes. In turn, Seattle will gain if Henry Siegl remains. He is a splendid addition to. the Sym- phony and must be a great help to our fine conductor. All of us who watched the great ovation which both received as they re- turned hand i hand to take their bows after their performance last week, were very proud. A/. h.
