THE PHILHARMONIC OPENS.
On Tuesday evening the Philhar
monic club, with a chorus of 250 voices,
including many of the best amateurs
of the city, and assisted by the Minne
apolis Symphony orchestra, with its
sixty members, also including many of
the best musicians of the city,' will
open its present season. The occasion
can scarcely fail to be a propitious one.
Society and music will go hand in hand
to the Auditorium and fill that vast
room to overflowing.
Gounod's "Faust" will be presented
in concert form with a full chorus, a
splendid men's chorus and a demi-choir,
as well as a, full complement of soloists.

THERE is any one thing of which
Minneapolis may well be proud, it
is the splendid musical organiza
tions which it boasts. Two of these,
the Symphony orchestra, and the Apollo
club, have already opened their present
Beason, and if the good things they pre
sented are any augury for the future,
Minneapolis ia fortunate indeed. The
largest of all the clubs, the 'Philhar
monic, will make its initial appearance
this week, giving at the Auditorium
next Tuesday evening, the first pre
sentation of GouWod's "Faust" in con
cert form.
To say that the Minneapolis public
has been generous in its support of
these organizations is saying what is
merely a trite euphemism. It should be
said with equal force that the clubs are
doing for Minneapolis, things which no
other city of its size in the United
States enjoys. The three clubs men
tioned with the Ladies' Thursday Musi
cal form a musical storm center, so to
Bpeak, which is bound to so saturate the
city soil with musical life giving moist
ure, that the fairest of musical fruits
and flowers cannot Jbut abound. More
than that, the members of these organ
izations, who day after day, week after
week and season after "Season give of
their time, strength and effort, to the
furtherance of the noble effort are
equally deserving of praise.
Another thing that is deserving of at
tention not only from Minneapolis and
St. Paul, but from the state of Minne
sota as well, is the condition of musical
culture at the university. Carlyle M.
Scott is giving what musical instruc
tion is given there. This is oonfined to
the junior and senior classes. The fact
that music is the one thing that is cath
voKc in almost all homes of the state,
does not seem to have entered into the
minds of the regents, Wor that music is
the one study to receive the scantiest
attention. There should be a strong
department of music, which will help
all students who desire such help and
instruction.
Fortunately, things are now trending
far that direction. The classes in theory,admirably
harmony and counterpoint, are being
carried on as never before, and are be
coming strong in numbers. There is a
male glee club and a female glee club.
There is a strong mandolin club and a
splen'did band. There should also be a
fine mixed chorus, and instruction in the
everyday things of music, including his
tory, that would broaden the student
culture about one of the commonest and
most delightful things of life, and about
which there is now a large measure of
lamentable ignorance.

The undertaking is perhaps a bigger
one than the "Samson and Delilah"
musical drama presented last season by
the club, and that the Auditorium is
now available for the performance is a
source of earnest congratulation. Mr.
Oberhoffer, as heretofore, will direct the
chorus and orchestra. The rehearsals
have been splendidly attended and very
thoro, so that nothing short of a cata
clysm should mar the occasion.
As soloists, Anito Rio has been se
cured to sing the role of "Marguer
ite" Marguerite* Hall "Siebel"
George Hamlin, Faust" Frank Crox
ton,
Mephisto," and Vernof D'Ar
nalle, "Valentin." That the cast will
be adequate there is no doubt. Mile.
Rio made her peace with Minneapolis
three years ago. Since then she has
sung largely in the east, and every
where with fine success. She has a
warm, rich voice, with large dramatic
possibilities. Mr. Hamlin is also well
known here, and will sing the role of
"Faust" ideally.
Miss Marguerite Hall is comparative
ly a newcomer, but she has a superb
contralto, rich and vibrant, and sings
with an artistic perception that is most
satisfying. Frank Croxton has seldom
if ever been heard here, but in the east
he is ranked as one of the best bassos
now on the concert stage. The "Val
entin" of Vernon D'Arnalle will also
be a splendid production. Mr. D'Ar
nalle's lyric voice and fine training
fit him for the part. Alto
gether the "cast" is most satisfac
tory.
CALVE NEXT WEEK.
Mme. Emma Calve and her company
will be here next week to open the "All
Star" course of attractions which will
be given durif the season at the Audi
torium.
It is several years since Calve has
been heard in Minneapolis. Her last
appearance was at the Exposition build,
ing in connection with the University
chorus, and will long be remembered by
those who heard her. Since that /time
Calve has been heard largely on the
continent and in England. It is safe
to say that none of the grand opera
stars have been in greater demand than
she.
While she has been superb as "Mar
guerite," bewitching as "Manon,"
and fascinating as "Tosca" and "Ned
da, it is as Carmen'' that she will
be longest' held in remembrance. The
wilful, passionate, impulsive, loving
cigaret girl afforded Calve an oppor
tunity which made her fame and for
tune. She knew the character, she had
the personality to fit into it and the
splendid artistic conception which made

actual embodiment of the Buperb. cre

ognized the living, pulsing thing, and
offered at Calve's shrine their devo
tions for such a splendid success.'
That all who have, never heard her
in this, her most vital creation, may in
part realize a long cherished ambition,
Mme. Calve will sing several excerpts
from the opera in the costume she
wears upon the stage.
The other members of Calve's com
pany are all of them fine artists and
will assist in presenting a program
which will prove extremely attractive
to all lovers of good music. No one
will willingly forego the pleasure of
seeing and hearing the most famous

Calve.
*7 WILEY'S BUSY WEEK.
Alfred R. Wiley will be a busy man
this week. The three choral societies
which he is directing will each present
Dubois' "Paradise Lost" in their re
spective cities, .Rochester, Red Wing
and Qwatonna. The soloists on each
occasion will be Vernon D'Arnalle,'who
will sing the role of Satan: D. Alvin
Davies of this city, who will represent
Adam, and Miss Alma Olson of this
city, who sings Eve.
BEISENAUEB COMING.
Alfred Reisenauer, the pianist who
has been having such a yogue in the
east, is to be heard in Minneapolis next
week Tuesday evening, with the Min
neapolis Symphony orchestra. This
will be the first appearance here of this
sterling artist, he being almost the "last
of the really great pianists to come.
ReiBenauer is a very interesting per
sonality, whose abilities and intelli
gence are not confined to music and the
piano.

THE "U" GLEE AND MANDOLIN
OLUBS.
University circles, and incidentally
many circles in the twin cities are just
now deeply interested in the coming
concert of the Glee and Mandolin clubs
at the university, which is to be given'
at the Auditorium next Friday evening.
It is said by those who ought to know
that both clubs are better this year than
they have ever been before and that
better work in the way of preparation
has been done. Both clubs are larger
than usual, and each has somefinenew
material in its personnel.
That the event is to be a social as
well as a musical success may be known
from the fact that almost all of the
sororities and fraternities at the uni
versity have taken boxes or purchased
rows of seats. A number of town box
parties have also been arranged. The
list of patronesses includes1

The best features of the evening were
the ehoral singing and the violin play
ing of Adolf Olson. The chorus num
bers 100 voices, and is very evenly bal
anced. The voices are sweet and nice
ly modulated, and the work/ of the
chorus certain'ly reflected great credit
on the leadership of Mr. Hjort. The
two numbers sung by the male cherus,
were not so enjoyable, but seemed a lit-

tie crude and unfinished. The "Crea
tion" chorus, "The Marvel Work,"
closed the program, the solo being sung
by Mrs. J. L. Hjort.
"The Sermon on the Mount" a sa
cred cantata by Thomas G. Shepard,
was sung by a quartet consisting of
Mrs. J. L. Hjort, soprano Miss Mar
garet Kvittum, contralto J. L. Hjort,
tenor, and Joseph Kvittum, bass\
The work itself is but mediocre, and the
voices composing the quartet are not
particularly sympathetic.
The playing of Adolph Olson was a
delight. His tone is remarkably broad,
full and sonorous for one so young. His
work on the string in Raff's "Cava
tina" was especially good. And The
von Goen's "Elegy" proved to be a
charming number.
The Choral society's next concert
will be given Jan. 12, when the "Mes
siah" will be sung, with MisBes Marie
Hovey and Eleanora Olson and Messrs.
Jacob L. Hjort and Harry E. Phillips
as soloists.
