Gustave Thalberg and Luud
University Student Chorus
to Visit United States
in June.
The students' chorus of Lund uni
versity, Sweeden, probably the strong
est male singing organization in the
world, will be heard in a concert in the
leading cities in the United States, be
ginning June 10 at Washington where
they will sing befoie President Roose
velt.
The chorus numbers sixty voices,
carefully selected from a much larger
student organization. The chorus will
make its iirst foreign appearance at the
Royal Albert hall, London, and arrives
in New York June 15. The singers will
be the guests of Yale university, June
17, at New Haven, and will then start
on their tour of four weeks. One of
the dates arranged for is at the St.
Louis exposition, on Sweedish day,
June 34.
Gustave Thalberg has been identified
with the successes of the Sweedish
singers. It was in 1867 that the Sweed'
ish students won first honors at the
Paris exposition, and since then they
have ranked first wherever they have
appeared. Mr. Thalberg was a mem
ber of the chorns that went to Paris in
1878. Since that time he has promoted
