Beaut.iful gemis front the treasury of
song and .poetry of the British Isles
make up -the unustial program to be
offered )y the Patricia Trio Ehis even
Ing at the Opera louse. A distinc- C
tive feature of this program by three
artists of exceptional merit I.Vill be I
the use of the formerly little knowin
Irish, Harp as 'an instrument of ac- U
Miss Patricia Gillmore from whomi
the .trio takes its name, heads the coin- i
t)any and is an artist who does not for
get to be entertaining even while
meeting the demands of the most ex
acting critics. She has a personality
that captivates and pleases and is as
sisted by two other artists in trios,
solos, and readings from the classic
songs and poetry of Ireland, England,
Scotlaid and Wtilbs.
The Irish harp will prove a novelty
and a delight to most of her audience
in Laurens. Originally developed by
the ininstrels of the ancient Irish
kings it had' been almost lost to civll,
ization dcsjite its admirable (ualities
as an acconipanylng instruient until
the recent Celtic revival. With dif
ficulty Miss Gilmore obtained one of
the instruments and she is now ac
counted one of its few masters in
The est:Lyceum programs are con
structed about a central idea and that
of the Patricia Trio is no exception.
In period costume the three artists aqp
pear in selce'tions which have solaced
and giddened the hearts of genera
tions -of our forebears and the simple
and lovely melodies, the musical %words
of the songs and poems of a sampler,

offered in *hat is proving this sea
son one of -the most attractive pro
grams of the Lyceum platform.
