One of the most brilliant musical
events of tho entire season will be giv
en at tho Grand theatre on Wednesday
ovening, January the twelfth, when the
New York Metropolitan singers, six in
ternational artUts, will appear in mo-,
mcnts from Grand Opera. The com
pany includes Miss Florence Hawkins,
a young American singer. Her flute

with local music lovers. Miss Clara
Freulor, mezzo-soprano, a former mem
ber of tiio Metropolitan company in
New York and Inst season a principal
of the Chicago Grand Opera company,
is said to have a voico that compares
favorably with that of Madam Sem
brich's. Francis W. Cowles. a well
known baritone, has a superb voice. He
lias style and finish and a fine stage
appearance and his diction is dmir-
able. Miss Molly Byerly Wilson( con
tralto from the Royal Opera in Vienna,
possesses a voice or most unusual depth
and indeed it has been authoritatively
stated that she has the deepest known
female voice. Alice McClung, the pi
anist, is too well known for comment.
rikovgaard, Denmark 's greatest
violinist, is the star of the company
and his playing has proved a veritable
revelation wherever he appears. He
ranks among tho leading violinists of
the world, and can be compared to
Kubcug, Ysaye and rxreisler.
