The hearty response of the people was shown in the receipt of over three hundred and twenty-iivi dollars which leaves a comfortable margin of profit for tlie promoters. As for tlie concert, it is hard to find words to adequately express the pleas-j ure enjoyed from the beginning- to tlie end. All of the performers are artists of tin- highest type. Louise Brehany, the singer uf the party, possesses soim-thing abnormal in range uf voice, comprising three full octaves, ami it is doubtful if there is another human being known to be endowed with such a wonderful vocal organ. Her rendering of "Somebody that I know and you know in three dis- tinct voic.'.s with such perfect ease proved this clearly to every hearer. The rare combination of a perfect tone production and so clear an enuncia- tion that not a word was missed, puts iier in the first rank of singers. In every way she is without doubt the greatest soloist this city has heard. Maximilian Dick, the violinist, en- raptured hiB audience by his brilliant and intricate execution, demonstrat- ing to them the wondrous powers of his instrument when in the hands of such a master. Edith Adam's playing on the violin- cello was a delight. Much astonish- ment was expressed that a woman should have so complete a mastery of this instrument. No member of the party was more popularly r ct'ived than Alice Mc- Clung, the clever young pianist, whose rendering of Liszt's Raphsodie No. 12 enthused the audience and was one of the features of the entertain- ment.
