And the enthusiasm was All the More to genuine because of its spontaneity occasioned by the remarkably Clever work of the society and the genuine Surprise which most of the audience experienced in listening to the rendition of Standard Lia usic by a chorus composed of strictly Home Talent. The work of the society the past win it ter has been largely in keeping with that of other societies members of the Maine festival chorus. The concert of thursday night convinced Many familiar with that work that the bar Harbor choral society it not one Whit behind the older members and As it has decided to become a Branch of the state organisation it can be relied upon to give a Good account of itself. Of soloists for the concert there were two mme. Dora Wiley Tennis Soprano and or. Harold Palmer baritone from whom Good work was naturally expected. The former has had Many years experience on the concert and operatic stage and is familiar with All the artful tricks of the profession while the latter is just entering upon a career that promises Well for the future. The concert began with Quot the qut Quot a cantata in two parts written by Ethel Bert Nevin. The program contained the words of the text and one was thus helped to understand the music which was very descriptive. Part one entitled the Quot lady of Saville Quot opened with a chorus of women8 voices Quot the Maiden Sang at the this was remarkably Well rendered and captivated the audience at once. The parts were evenly balanced and the voices blended most harmoniously. Tie Alto was a feature which supported by a full Soprano produced a pleasing effect this and the closing chorus Quot i longed i longed for an unknown Joy Are written in a vein More easily understood by the average hearer though the Dirge like music closing in a sort of Monotone of the chorus Quot death s courier came and spoke the name of the lady of Saville Quot made quite an impression. The chorus of men s voices was Well rendered though the volume of tone was somewhat reduced because the men necessarily were seated further Back on the stage with its great open space overhead. If the chorus did Well in part first it excelled in part second entitled Quot the desert it seemed As if it had a reserved Force which had been held in Chelt by the Leader and when Quot away to the West he Rode Quot was taken up it was Sung in a Bright entrancing manner with sudden bursts of enthusiasm that was exhilarating. This was followed by a chorus of women s voices and the Climax was reached in the closing chorus Quot it May be the gleam of an unknown the Solo singing in Quot the quest Quot by mme. Tennis and or. Palmer was quite satisfactory but the effect would have been improved had further rehearsals with the chorus been held. Mme. Tennis experience and familiarity with similar work of course enabled her to sustain her part in True artistic style. Or. Palmer s voice was hardly suited for the part assigned him. He was not Able to take the High notes in which the score was written and fortunately did not attempt to. He did Well however and in his Solo in the second part Quot i will find the fir of Lier heart s desire Quot he Sang with much spirit and remarkably Clear enunciation. Part second of the program opened with the Quot Soldier s chorus Quot from Gounod s Quot Faust Quot Sung in a most spirited manner and in a Tempo that would have taxed the most experienced chorus Singer. The Quot magic of Spring Quot a Waltz song by von Weinzierl was a Bright and sparkling number. To the cadence of the music one could almost hear the b0>ok babbling in the distance and the twitter of the Bluds As they hopped from limb to limb. Through it All one Felt that Spring glad Spring is Quot of my Luve s like a red red Rose Quot by Garrett to Many seemed to be the Gem of the chorus singing. The closing chorus Quot with Strephon for your toe Quot from Quot Lola the Quot by Sullivan was Sung so enthusiastically that the number was completed before the audience realized that the work of the evening was Over and the concert of 1903 had become a thing of the past. To the second part of the program mme. Tennis contributed two numbers. The applause that accompanied her efforts demonstrated How coins lately she had captivated the audience for double encores were accorded both numbers. Her singing of Gounod s ave Maria Quot with cello Obligato by or. Jas. D. Maxwell was an is tatic contribution. To at encore she gave the familiar Home Sweet Home Quot an for Mcand enwere the ferryman Quot in a Serio comic thanner. Her second number Waian Irish Luciy by be am the audit Ece act Udoji a tinted a mood a a pure was called for to which mme. Tent is responded play inst her own a co a if it aliment. Or Palmer s con libation was Quot visions fair Quot from Quot hero Ade Quot by Massenet which brought an encore to him. Red ild Fng he gave a Good night Quot song Whilt proved to be by far his Best work. If Only instrumental number on the program was a minute celebre by Bocch Rini by the string orchestra. This was a Star number. 11 was most daintily playe and made such an impression that a repetition was called for and granted. Tiiu i it orchestra was composed As follows of a c. Welsh of Portland and Roland i Sawyer of Bangor violins Robert i it Wimmond of Bangor Viola James d. Maxwell of Bangor cello Robert cat Well of Bangor Bass and Job Springer of att Usu clarinet. The Way tie chorus which number etl a it it it seventy voices responded to the Leader was a Clear indication of the hold he Bas upon the members. His every Wiah was anticipated and the music Rose and fell just As he desired. In fact the Succes of the concert was in a Large measure due to the Hearty response of the Chrohis and the members thereof deserved and received the highest commendations. A word of Praise is due the two accompanists miss Ina m. Guptill and miss Effie Pendleton for the efficient manner in which they performed their work not an Espy undertaking by any Means. To or. Maurice c. Rumsey the director of the choral society and projector of tie concert great credit is due. The Flat telling reception accorded his every appearance on the stage was Well merited and the encomium that have been passed Lipon the Success of the concert is gratify la to his friends. For five years or. Ramsey has devoted his entire time to the up building of a music Loving Circle in a Harbor. He has taken the material it hand and faithfully a red moulding Aad training it until now he has a society tint stands second to none in the state ill Quality of work. But few know the amount of labor this has involved not Only mental but manual for be it known a iat the preparation of much of the Manu script music has been the work of his mward a cottages for rent or for Saez a Orrice bar Harb ii main re hand. Had any one said two years ago that a chorus of seventy or More voices could be organised in bar Harbor and kept together Long enough to give such a concert As was Given thursday night he would have been thought visionary. Or. Rumsey has shown that it can be done and the Success which has crowned his efforts will no doubt Lead him to attempt still greater things. For this he should have the Hearty support of the Community. Bustling times. Work on the various cottages being completed rapidly.
