Royal Dadmun, the well known
baritone who has, been engaged
by the Salem Musical bureau to
give the first of their concerts
here November 17th, belongs to
that fast increasing class of Am
erican singers who have been able
to find in this country the train
ing and education necessary tor
the making of fine artists. Each
season finds this country less de
pendent upon Europe for its mu
sic makers in the sense of those
that bring to the public whether
by voice or by instrument the
thoughts and imagery of the

erican singer today holds a pro
eminent position. They are to be

institution. The same is true in
Chicago and as for the concert

of the most highly esteemed bar!
tones now before the public.
The story of Dadmun, like that
of most of his American col
leagues, runs along very simple
lines. His career is of his own
making, the result of industry
and persistence acting on fine
natural talent. He came to New
York from Williamstown, Mass.,
in 1908, quite unknown without
influential friendEf to help him on.
He worked and studied to such
good purpose that in a very
short time he had a profitable
This brought him to the notice
of others. Small outside engage
ments came to him. His voice was
liked, his singing and sincerity
made more friends for him. The
engagements outside of his church
work increased in number and
importance. The name of Dad
1 un became familiar to those that
made engagements for the per
formances of oratorio and th
like, for he had shown uncom
mon talent in this kind of work
Then came an engagement to
go on tour with the Philharmonic
society of New York during sev
eral weeks of one spring, in 1916
This in fact was the turning
point of his career. He had un
common success in all the cities
visited by the orchestra, such suc
cess that the very next spring he
was summoned to take a similar
but longer tour with the Minne
apolis orchestra, since then he has
been soloist with the Philadelphia
Symphony orchestra, the Dam
rosch Symphony orchestra, the
New York Oratorio society and
wil! be the first soloist with the
Portland Symphony orchestra

Of Cyrena Van Gordon, prima
donna mezzo contralto, who will
sing in Salem on October 17, a
prominent Chicago musical critic
commented as follows after a re
cent brilliant performance by-this
"A wonderful performance! A
great triumph for a young Amer
ican artist. A victory for opera In
English! This was the consensus
of opinion after "The Valkyrie"
last evening. It was one of the
most brilliant successes of the sea
son, an occasion marked by
breathless attention on the part
of the huge audience which filled
the Auditorium to its utmost ca
pacity and then broke loose after
every act to express in no uncer
tain terms of approval how it was
affected by this splendid achieve
ment. It has long been' Cyrena Van
Gordon's ambition to sing Wagner
and especially the role of Brunn
hilde, the super-maid favorite o
the god Wotan. She had prepared
herself for this opportunity for
some time together with her-other
arduous duties as an important
factor in the general opera reper
toire, and proved to be fully ready
for a vocal ordeal that tests the
ability of the greatest singers.
Miss Van Gordon met the test
easily and triumphantly. She was
dramatically powerful and vocally
superb. Even her English was all
one could ask, and the picture she
made as the maid in shining armor
with her silver shield and scarlet
cloak will not soon be forgotten,
especially when she came on the
stage leading her milk white steed.
By what she accomplished last
evening, Miss Van Gordon takes
her place among the foremost
singers of the day. She is fulfil
ing the late Maestro Campanini's
prediction: "You will one day be
one of the greatest dramatic so
pranos of the age."
Miss Van Gordon's concert in
Salem will be the first of the Sa
lem Artist Series.
