August. Miss Dahl is not alone the idol of iho Norwegian poo* pie; sho Is the most appreciated ol all the vocal artists of northern Europe, and tho fact that her name Is less familiar In America than the names of Melba, Nordlca, Sembrich, etc., Is in largo measure explained by the fact that the Scandinavian poo -pie havo had strong objection to losing their favorite singer even for the short period required for the Amer -lean tour. It was when the pro  meters of tho great Minneapolis snn-gerfest sought from Edvard Grieg, the foremost composer of the age, tho artiste whom in his opinion was most qualified to give vitality and color to his works, that they wer referred to Olivia Dahl, tho composer's pupil and protege, who was | eventually engaged as the star sol-) olst of the Inst Minneapolis festival, where sho won the hearts of 13,000 | listeners in a night. Miss Dahl came to America with this introduction from the world's greatest modern composer, "tho tooe poet of the North." "It gives me great pleasure to introduce my compatriot, Miss Olivia Dahl, to tho American people. She Is a most capable singer and possesses a beautiful and most sympath | etlc voice. She moves with surpassing ease in the domain of song lit erature. Interpreting with equal intelligence the varied sentiments of the art song and popular ballad.
