Violinist Jascha Heifetz, accompanied by pianist Emanuel Bay, gave a recital at the Metropolitan Opera House as a benefit for the Vassar Club Scholarship Fund. To Beethoven’s “Spring” sonata, Op 24, he added Lalo’s “Spanish Symphony” and Saint-Seans’s “Introduction and Rondo Capriccioso.”  Shorter pieces by Debussy, Chopin and Tchaikovsky rounded out the program.

Seating on the stage for the performance was reserved for women in the armed services.
