There is a very large see-. ■tion of the community which does nob lay claim to the distinction' of -being practical musicians. Such a condition does not preclude one from being keenly critical, however; neither does it prevent one from being able to appreciate art at its true value. Then, too, there are the students of singing. This class, which is very numerous, takes a very keen interest in the appearance of a gifted artist like Mdlle. Dolores. There is nrach to learn by attending iat her recitals. The ease with which she accomplishes the most rapid of florid passages and her admirable control of breathing and her perfect vocalisation are all valuable educative points to those who aspire to the concert platform. During the coming visit Mdlle. Dolores will present a programme of conspicuous diversity, ranging from the favourite aria, "Ah 'fors c lxri," from. Verdi's opera "Traviata," to the simple folk songs of various nations. The only concert in A«hburton will', beheld on Wednesday ovoni^o; next'in the The'a.tre -Royal. The ■■•■plan oners on Monday.
