The one great orchestral event of the
local season of 1909-10 .was the music
treat given by Walter Damrosch, the
New Tork Symphony Orchestra and Ave
soloists, at the Armory, last Wednesday
afternoon and night. Two large audiences
attended and, naturally enough, Dam
rosch and his orchestra were praised as
"the greatest ever." To meet their really
serious orchestral rivals one would have
to go to Europe say to Berlin, Munich,
Paris or London. I wrote a lengthy criti
cism in The Oregonian of last Thursday
of the two concerts, and need add no
more now! The tenor soloist. Reed Miller,
was the best of the four, and It Is very
seldom we hear such an excellent singer
en tour. Madame Van der Veer, con
tralto, who in private life is. Mrs. Reed
Miller, substituted without any previous
notice "Ah Mon F"ils," from "Ie
Prophete," in place of number four on
the programme, an air from Gounod's
"Sappho." I asked Mr. Iomrosch, after
the first concert, if there had been any
changes from the printed programme, and
Le replied "No." That was where he for
got. The concerts were given under the
direction of Lois Steers-Wynn Coman.
Miss Dagmar Inez Kelly, a young me-o-soprano
whose fine singing Is meeting
with much favor, was soloist at a concert
given in St. Joseph's Hall, Salem, Or.,

CWilleby), "Wishes" (Sana Soud), 'The
Bowl of Roses" (Clark), "Rose In the
Bud" (Dorothy Foster), -Absent" (Met
calf), "Spring" (Neldllnger). Miss Kelly
was EJndly received.

chorus, with about 90 voices on the mem
bership roll, plans to enjoy its annual
river excursion, on a steamer. May 30.
J. W. Belcher has been re-engaged as
music director and tenor soloist' at the
First Baptist Church choir and Mrs. Lulu
Dahl Miller as contralto for the ensuing
year, with Miss Leonora Fisher as or
ganist. There are vacancies both for
