A soft sweet sound of delicate music
floated on the air at the Auditorium ast
night, the opening notes of Dvorak's
"Husitska" overture, and the annual
concerts of the Mendelssohn Choir of
Omaha and the Theodore Tho.'iks Or
chestra of Chicago were begun.
On the rostrum at tl:e Auditorium
were gathered two of the greatest musxal
organisations In the world. The Tiieo.

And what of the Mendelssohn Choir?
No one of Omaha who waa at the Audi
torium last night but felt proud of that
splendid organisation. It Is a mild state
ment to say that the work of tho singers
was superb; no superlative could over
state the excellence of the choral music
they furnished. Mr. Kelly introduced
