The Peabody Conservatory's Friedberg Hall was filled for last night's concert by the Peabody Symphony Orchestra. The reason was probably the presence of Jennifer Davison in six Richard Strauss songs for soprano and orchestra. The word on Davison, the winner last year of Peabody's Sylvia L. Green Vocal Competition, is that she is one of the most accomplished young singers to come through the school in years.She certainly lived up to her reputation on this occasion. She has a light, beautiful voice that is even in all parts of her range.

But a chosen few Baltimoreans got the first look at it a year ago at the William & Irene Weinberg Family Baltimore Jewish Film Festival.
