Peninsula people had a musical treat in the visit of tbe Ellwood Trio, who made their appearance in the Oddfellows' Hall, Akaroa, on Friday. Tho visit was arranged by Mr F. Taylor, and thanks are due to bim for his energy in bringing the young people down. All three performers are excellent, Harry being an accomplished violinist, while George played the 'cello in a

most sympathetic and touching manner. The crisp masterly > ccompaniment on the pianoforte by Polly Ellwood was one of the most delightful parts of the entertainment. The musical performance open with a- trio from " Haydn," played with wonderful finish. Several small pieces followed. Mr Arthur McDonald then sang " Saphic Ode" and "Rebel," but though he has a fine voice his in.distinct enunciation made it hard to follow the words of tbe song- Then came 'cello and violin one after the other. The Oddfellows' Hallwascrowded with an appreciative audience, and the boyswere recalled again and again. In the second half Mr McDonald sang *' Invictus." The song suited bis voice, and be infused plenty of spirit into the brave lines. Receiving a determined encore he sang the old favourite, " Annie Laurie." Of the !cel!o selections played so charmingly by George Ellwood, perhaps the most delightful was "Le Cygne." Harry Ellwood baa certainly mastered tbe violin, and his performance gave the 1 audience keen pleasure. Perhaps be was at his best in tbe rendering of Kreister's delightful reverie, "Schon Rosmario."' The final trio, "Widor's Serenade," in which violin, 'cello and piano were blended so exquisitively, was alone worth going many miles to hear. There i 3 no doubt the Ellwood trio have a great future before them, and Akaroa people all hope that they may be offered another opportunity of hearing them on tbe Peninsula
