THE IDLERS’ CONCERT. In response to an invitation issued some ten days ago, a large number of friends assembled in the Victoria Hall on Monday night last, when "The Idlers” gave their second annual invitation concert. Everybody knows who ‘‘The Idlers” are, and the concert was looked forward to with keen interest. Disappointment was written largely on many faces when Mr Hoyles announced that owing to bereavement Mrs Hogg would not be able to sing, but he added that Mrs Kings!and, at the last moment, had graciously consented to fill in the numbers, and she was accorded a hearty round of applause on appearing-. ‘‘The Idlers” opened the concert with two lively cavalier songs entitled ‘‘Give a Rouse” and Boot and Saddle.” Miss Mclntosh sang ‘‘My Resting Place” (Schubert) very sweetly, and afterwards delighted the audience with two little songs ‘‘Sleep, little ruffly fluffy Bird” and l‘‘Where Dewdrops Sleep”—giving for an encore “Little one A-crying.” The third item on the programme was the trio, “O Memory,” Mrs Klngsland taking Mrs Hogg’s part along with Miss Mclntosh and Mr Cookson. Mr Ferguson gave “ Sur&um Corda” (Elgar) in his usual good style, and afterwards played “Bach’s Concerto Largo” for two violins with Mr Barrett. Mr Cookson sang “Love's Sorrow,” and had to respond to an encore. Other items were “Snowdrops,” by Mrs Kingsland, who also gave “Happy Days” in the second part of the programme ; Prince Ivan’s song by Mr Geo. Black ; Love’s Slumber Song,” “The Flirt,” and “Now is the Month of Maying” by “The Idlers,” assisted by Master Pope. A unique item on the programme was a sketch entitled “After Dinner Speeches” by Mr Hoyles!—a new departure, and one that met with great favour from the audience. The accompaniments were played in a very able manner by Misses Price and Osbnrne and Mr F. F. Thomas.
