r l liL’ grand choral .and' orchestral concert, given in the Theatre on Tuesday evening last by the Invercargill .Musical Union proved one : of the best yet given in this town, and the large 1 gathering fully appreciated the splendid effort of this worthy organisation. The greater ptirt of tne work tell to Mr dray. (lie conductor. but he is a keen musician and lakes a pride in placing before the public a tinishe-d performance, and he succeeded admirably on Tuesday night. The soloists,'Mrs 11. H. ITogg and Miss Mclntosh, were in good voice, and were greeted with well-merited praise. The other contributors, Messrs Cookson. Churton, Couling, Bared ami Lillicrap were in good fettle, and carried through, their parts in line style. The part songs and choruses were well-rendered, showing care and attention to detail. Perhaps the crowning effort was reached in the grand march, “It comes from the misty age.” It proved a splendid effort, and the audience were not slow to recognise it. The Union should bo well satisfied with the result of the entertainment, both from an educative and monetary point of view.
