What shall we say? Superlatives
must be used in any description ofy
the concert at the Tabernacle Satur
day night, and surpassingly sweet
and beautiful was the singing of the
charming Salt Lake artists. Misses
Barnes and Kelley. As a contralto.
Miss Barnes has never had an equal
in concert in this city, and the same
may be said of the exceedingly sweet
and clear voice of Miss Kelley . The
charm of their singing was added to
by the lovlineBS of their personality.
Professor Kimball is an organist of
repute, and his coming was a treat to
the music lovers of the city. The
organ was in perfect tone and con
dition, and the keys were manipula
ted by a maBter.
The chorus of 100 voices has been
trained thoroughly and efficiently, and
their rendition of the Choruses was
magnificent . ,
The attendance was large, and the
audience was very enthusiastic in its
encores to the singers. Each was cal
led back as often as they would re
spond, . and the enjoyment of their
hearers was greatly heightened by the
old familiar favorites, "Ben Bolt." and
Annie Laurie." These concerts have
become a feature that is eagerly look
ed forward to by every music lo r ii
