DOMINICAN CONVENT CONCERT.
The concert given at the Princess's Theatre on Thursday evening by the pupils of the Dominioan Convent was very successful. Notwithstanding the disadvantage under which the greater number of the performers labored in being required to fill a building rather above their powers, they acquitted themselves very well. Among the principal items deserving of special notice were the violin solos of the Misses May Howell and Dickinson, who showed a proficienoy inthe manipulationof their instruments and a musical capacity generally that were most creditable. A piano duet, played by the Misses Irwin, ex-pupilsof the Convent, was also very admirable. Mrs Montague, another ex-pupil, also proved herself a brilliant pianist in a solo played by her, and a duet in which she took part with Miss K. Moloney, who likewise did her work in an extremely satisfactory manner. Solos were very sweetly sung by the Misses Mills and Popr>lewell, who each received an encore. A principal feature of the entertainment was the exhibition of some tableaux vivants, illustrative of the history of Ireland from the days of St, Patrick to the present, and whioh were very effective. T<vo overtures performed by pianos and strings, under the conductorship of Mr F. Leech, are also deserving of mention. On the whole the entertainment was a very creditable one in every respect. [We find that through some misadventure the usual tickets which were sent to us by the Mother Prioress failed to reach their destination.— Ep. E.S.]
