Another spelling bee
played by Florence de Jong at the theatre organ
Florence de Jong, the first woman organist to broadcast and record and play at Command Performances, was the originator of that popular musical quintet, the Bag a' Tricks (organ, two pianos, and two singers), which included two of Florence's sisters, Ena and Celeste Baga, at the two pianos and herself at the organ. Florence, third of four sisters, all of them musically gifted (Beatrice Baga excels on violin and sax) is now touring cinemas throughout the country, making a special feature of community singing for the Forces and general public, among them so many members of Civil Defence units. This feature, preceded by her signature tune 'Passing Thoughts', gets a rousing welcome wherever she goes.
