The third of Mr Towsey's agreeable concerts was held at the Choral Hall on Saturday afternoon before a fairly numerous audience, considering the very" unfavorable weather that prevailed. A feature of the programme was the excellent harp-playing of Miss C. Larnacb, who contributed a solo • Watching the wheat' (by Thomas), and also took part in Bochsa's 'Tancredi' overture trio for harp, violin, and pianoforte. Miss Larnach's playing of this seldom-played instrument was highly appreciated by the audience, and she will be listened to with gratification on future occasions that may offer. Miss A. Larnach was warmly applauded for her skilful execution of a couple of violin solos —De Beriot'a • Trois bouquets' and a cavatina by Raff. Mrs W. Hislop sang Marzials's ' River of years ' and Pontet's 'Last Milestone' very nicely, and received a due measure of applause for the Bame, while Mr Towsey contributed Blumenthal's • Unsaid ' and Sir W. Robinson's 'I love thee so' in very good style. The pianoforte pieces were restricted to a solo by Miss Wilson—Beethoven's sonata, op. 31-~ and a couple of duets by Miss Wilson and Mr Towsey, in the shape of Moskowski's ' From foreign parts' and Silas's ' Turkish March.' £hese were j executed in a' most proficient manner, and were thoroughly enjoyed by the audience.
