Sheehan, the tenor, w.ho is coming :o the Majestic'Theatre for two days, Thursday and Friday. Oct. 30 and 11, lor performances of the world's favor- lie operas, 'II Trovatore' and 'The Chimes of "to see that tradually 'the general public are be- Dinning to realize that grand opera Joss Miot mean something intended _jmly vfor the musician. During .the "past three years I liave given, special Attention to thoso operas which are Interesting to the av-eragc playgoer, is well as to the musician, and all of 'these none quite so 'well fills the bill as 'H Trovatore.' "Given in English, as we do, 'I! i'rovatore' and 'The Chimes of Nor- mandy' are as interesting in story and plot RK any drama ever staged with .inch a cast of stars as are in my com- pany itliis year. "In 'II Trovafore.' besides the itrong dramatic side, there is tuost beautiful and tuneful music: Irani a standpoint of melody alone, no Eoin-ic opera can compare What comic opera, has such beautiful numbers as the picturesque 'Anvil the wonderful 'Miserere' in the tower house, the famous trio at the eihl of the first ma. ihe duel and sword fight at the close of the con- tent scene, and others too numerous to mention.'' In addition LO the famous tenor, the; company this year includes ihe fore- inost operatic stars on the English singing stage, and chorus of sixty selected voices. For a special fwelvo "Provincial Musical Festivals in the United by Albert A. Stanley, professor of music in the University of Michigan and director of the Univer- sity School of Music. Professor Stanley traces the origin of festivals as the legitimate outgrowth of the musical convention, which ho finds indigenous to our soil. For the initial impulse toward the creation of tlio festivals the writer looks back to the countrn singing- school teacher. Professor Stanley quoted statistics of the tours of six orchestras in 1011, quartettes of competent soloists, cov- ering milts and giving festivals in 200 cities. The Bach Festival at Uethleheni, Pa., comes in for its share of attention, as we'll us those of Wor- cester and Ci-ncinnati. The reader is placed in an envious mood by the programs of the excellent concerts offered to the members of the International Society, with an unusual variety of numbers conducted by the composers. One concert program, by the London Symphony Orchestra, in- cludes the following compositions thus directed: "Phantasy of Life and F. H. Cowen; Second Symphony. Sir Edward Elgar; "The Ethel Smyth; two movements from Sym- phonic Suite in D Minor, Edward Ger- man; and William Another interesting program is that of a- concert of chamber music by living British composers. Felice Lyne Sued Oscar Hammerstcin lias brought suit for for libel against. Fel- ice Lyne, who for him at Lcmlon opera lasi season. Mr ago iici'aon.s unknown in these parts drifted into this city and Iniiifr out tii.oir shingle with tlio words "Toronto Academy of, claiming that this institution had the largest enroll men I of any academy in tlio world, .XiimormiB en- iinlrlBS came to this oiilco as to whether there wan such an Institution in Toronto. Accordingly the Herald made enquiries and was informed that no such Institution as "The Toronto Academy of Music" was known in To- ronto. Thoro is a peculiar air of mystery about, iho whole affair. 1 am Informed that tlio parlies liwulud by one, a Mrs. -Wagner, who seemed to bo the leading spirit ol1 the "academy" left for Vancouver some v.'ceka ago and that a Mr. Luwrenef; now has tliarge of tlio works here. It is not my intention to throw cold water on the methods adopted by this teaching Institution but in all fairness to the public one is inclined to opinion that they ought to come out from un- der cover and produce their credent- ials. In these days it is quite an easy matter to find charlatan music teachers who will circularise the pub- lic by informing it that, their "pro- fessors" are all so capable. On the other hand the who has de- cided to ''take a course" very often discovers that he or she- is throwing money away in something which is not returning value. FHKC institutions now-a-days should'be driv- en out of business. Any fool can pose as a "professor of music" but the practical test of ability as a sen- era! rule sooner or later explodes bubble, As I have already said 1 know nothing of the teaching ods of tbo "Toronto Academy of Music' 'nor do 1 know of any such in- stitution, in Toronto. The columns of this paper are open to "Mr. or "The .Toronto Academy of Music" to give its history from the ground up and its methods of doing business.
