Preparations On in Earnest-Many
Newberry People Will Likely At
tend The Event.
The: Chioral Festival which is to
be held in Greenwood on the 18th and
19th of April is exciting no little in
terest locally. It is thought that a
large crowd will go fromi here to take
advantage of the great opportunity
offered to hear some great singing
by some equally great artists. The
railroads will grant low rates, and the
sehedules are so arranged that those
who intend zoing to Greenwood in
April maY do so at little inconven
ience, itiasnuch as practically all of
the three performance may be taken
in. allowing the busy men to return
hone easily in. tiine for opening busi
Fromii all that can be learned, the,
Choral Festival in Greenwood will
be a great event Few this section, and
the people of that little city have at
a great expense to themselves, secur
ed some well known artists to sing
there. They are busily engaged
making all preparations for the great
event, and the three concerts which
will be given as follows: Wednesday
iight. Thursday afternoon. and'
Thursday night, will be well at.tended.
People all over this section are con
templating attending. And it iswell,
too, for not often does the opportun
ity present itself for lovers of music
and by great artists too to hear and
attend an event of such magnitude.
The chorus which will sing will be
composed of one'hundred and forty
five well trained v'oices a fact, in it
self, which will prove great drawing
card. Then, in a great-measure ad
ding luster to the musical event, are
the renowned singers from the W'est
who have, at a great price, been seeur
ed to sing at Greenwood. It costs no
little outlay of money to induce a
singer of national and worldwide rep
utation to sing. and the people of
Greenwood realize this fact.
The seat sale was opened last week
in the store of S. C. Hodges, to whom
all letters should be addressed. In
order to secure the choicest seats in
the house a great number have al
ready been sold, but those in charge
are urging the people to seeure seats
at once. so that those who attend will
get the- best places. The prices of ad
mission are only seventy five cents
for each performance, while the sea
son ticket entitling~ the holder to the
three performances are only two
dollars. This is regarded very moder
ate for the high class of singing to
Greenwood congratulates herself
upt n secnring of the most renwoned
artists in the country. Among the
numbe'r are Cenevieve Clark Wilson,
sopra no. Harriet Frahm. contralto. H.
Aug. Smith, tenor, and Gustaf Hol
quist. bass. With the grand chorus
of 14-> voices, these will p)resent such
an array of musical talent as has
never before been seen in this section.
All.of them will come to Greenwood
in April with a reputation well earn
ed. with voices, well known and appre
ciated and on Wednesday night, the
18th which is Artists Night will de
light a large audience which has al
ready signified its intention of com
ing. S. C. Hodges, of Greenwood,
who is in charge of the tickets, and
can furnish any information, states
that the seat sale has been more than
gratifying, and that the only way to
secure the best locations in the audi
torium is to write for them now.
