ST. JOHN'S EVE.
On Tuesday evening the university
ecbool of music gave (ho annual con
cert. Tbcee annual culminations of the
musical season- are the most popular
of all the universjty numbers only ex
cepting the commencement exercises.
Mrs. P. V. M. "Raymond, has trained
a chorus which this year numbered 133,
bo that it sang with ono voice, the mei
low.'sprightly'music of tbo cantata, St.
John's Evoi "The tine soloists were, ap
preciated and applauded but the noble
song of tho chorus, ita unity, strength,
sustained Breotnesa of- tone and its
perfect blending and obedience to the
direction of the conductor was surpris
ing even to'an audience' accustomed to
Mrs, Raymoffd'e ctiorusea.
As a conductor, Mr6. Raymond's work
is admirable. As the trainer of a chor
us capable of rendering an oratorio or
a cantata with equala brilliancy and
finish, she has a unique reputation
among professional musicians in this
country. She is a devoto of the loftiest
music and every member of her chorus
classes learn from her eventually much
more, oh very much more, than bow to
sing this or that oratorio or cantata.
The eoloistswereliss.IIelenF. Smy
ser soprano, Miss Grace Reynolds alto,
Mr. W. P. Hypes tenor, and Mr. C. V.
Kettering bass. Miss Symser's pure
soprano, sureness and Catholic culture
was apparent. Mr. .Hypes, the tenor,
had thejsame mastery of his work.
The duet at the close of the evening
was artistic and pleaEed a rather un
demonstrative audience. Miss Rey
nolds and Mr. Kettering though the one
is still a student and the other is not a
professional, were in admirable voice
and sung with no whit less feeling, com
prehension and artistic effect than the
The ensemble effect of the chorus,
was most pictureeque with the men on
the highest seats on the background,
the women, in front in white and the
light feminine shades of blue, yellow,
green and pink, with' the -orchestra and
their shiny instruments in the middle
foreground and the soloists and the
conductor in the foreground,.,. . n
The orchestra wts trained by Mr.
August Hagenow.- Here too,there has
been a great" improvement. -Violinists,
cellists, corflettistsyand "fympani" per
former, remembered their place as ac
companists'and that they were parts of
a composition. As accompanists on
string or brass they eLtered into no
rivalry "witlr.throatB'but took'tne s'econd"
place and the satisfactory result was
due, in part, to their , moderation. Miss
Stuart was the piano accompanist. She
played with verve, sympathy, and mu

Wesleyan graduate- students, assisted
by the Wesleyan quartette, the Hage
now Philharmonic "orchestra, Miss
Smith, the pianist, and' Director Locke
as conductor, gave, an admirable xncert
on Monday evening at the Oliver to a
large audience, which listened and
spontaneously applauded the clever per
formers. Professor Locke has made the
music department at the Wesleyan one
of the strongest in the university. Gifted
with patience, an ability for taking
pains, possessed of unusual musical
culture, and assisted by Miss Smith, bis
pupils brrv'Mbnday night showed what
such a'character.jculture and inspira- ,
tion, when a'gplied to music, can ac
complish" The'gfee club and the quar
tette .received tumultuous applause
whenever they "sang; Single' and double
enrores Were insisted upon. The glee
club sang, a sea song as an encore. Mr.
Farmer' gave "Maid of Dundee." The
quartette added to'tne printed number
"Annio laurie" and the funny "Owl
and PusBy Cat."
Tbo program w.19 so long that indi
vidual criticism is impossible. The
bearing of the pupils was composed and
their accuracy in rendering the works
.of Chopin, Schumann and Schubert
Liszt was noticeable. Their interpre
tations, although characteristic of the
student, were not without promise,
which in some cases was brilliant and
At the close of the program the thir

and received their diplomas from the
hands of Chancellor Huntington. A
