J S f I. I;". IN MUSICAL CIRCLES. Tho musical event of tbo past week was tho "first concert of this, tho third season, of tho Washington Musical Club Messrs. Xandcr, Rakcmnnn, Mlersch and Morsoll on "Wednes day evening at tho Untvcrsallst Church. One of the mo6t pleasing of duties for tho critic is to write up a performance by local talent of which nothing but praiso can bo truthfully sald. In this instance tho selections wcro so well chosen and admirably rendered that tho whole concert was satisfying in tbo highest dc .grce. Tho young mon composing this organ ization havo labored untiringly during tho past two years in their efforts to popularize classical recitals, and it must havo been highly gratifying to them to havo opened their sca fion before an audience made up of tho repre sentative music lovers of this city, who re ceived each number on tho programme vlth tho heartiest demonstration of ap proval. Tho concerted pieces selectod by Messrs. Xandcr (piano), Rakemann (violin), and Mlerscb ('cello), wcro a trio by Rubensteln (No. 1 in F major), Gounod's 4,D'tm coeur qui t'ot'mc," and tho charming and suddenly-become popular "Intormezzo slnfonico" from "Cavallerla Kusticana." In their rendition a marked improvement was noticeable over tho work of laBt year partic ularly in precision and freedom In attack and delicacy in the pianissimo passages. These points were almost faultlessly glvon and show the result of much and careful rehearsal. In tho Intermezzo tho club was assisted by Mr. E. H. Droop, who ably presided at tho organ. Tho club was fortunate in securing for its initial performance tho assistance of Mra. Julia E. Wyman, of Hoston, who con tributed to the programme Liszt's "Loreley," "At Twilight," by Nevln, and "Tho Heart's Fancies," by Goring-Thomas. Her voice is a mezzo-soprano of power and sweetness, and her singing is a constant source of delight to the hearer, 60 entirely natural and unaffected is her articulation and phrasing. Her inter pretation of "At Twilieht," a plaintively beautiful little song,- -was especially artistic. For an encore she Bang In French "The King's Daughters," by Augusta Holmes. Mr. PaulMierscn's solo numbers were "Sur le Xac," by Godard, and "Air Ongrois," by Hauser-Fischer, and ho fully sustained his reputation as a violoncellist of the first rauk. His work was enthusiastically applauded, but he modestly declined an encore. Mr. Hern don Morsell's voice shows the beneficial ef fects of a season's comparative rest, and was as sweet and under as good control as in former years. His three songs were of widely differing sentiment, and ho interpreted them gracefully and artistically. Mr. Herman Rakemann played Hollaender's concert-polonaise for the violin in his usual smooth and finished manner, and for an encore gave a charming little "Slumber Song" of his own composition which captivated tho audience. Mr. Henry Xander played all of the accompa niments during tho evening, and played them excellently. It is to be regretted that the ne cessity of his appearing so many times made It impossible for him to contribute a sole- num ber. Altogether the concert was highly cred itable to the club, and the club proved itself to be a credit to the city. The next concert will bo given in January next. s Mr. Ernest Szemelenyl. tho local director of the Choral Society, has been confined to his bed during the past week by a severe at tack of inflammatory rheumatism, and tho rehearsal on Tuesday evening was conducted by Mr. H. M. Paul, a member of the society. This statement of the nature of Mr. Szeme lenyi's illness is mado because many might otherwise infer that he was suffering from nervous prostration consequent upon the shock sustained in contemplation of the por trait which appeared over his name in last Sunday's Post. 9 Miss Leonora Von Stosch, the talented young violinist of this city, 1b to play at the second Cecilia concert at Boston this season. Mr. Walter Damrosch Is expected to be present at the rehearsal of the Choral Society next week. a Mr. E. L. Holmes, who has been closely identified with local music for a space of twenty years at least, and Is known to every musician in the city, by virtue of his former leadership of the Franz Abt Club and various church choirs, has resigned the position he has so long held in tho office of Internal Rev enue, Treasury Department, to devote his en tire attention to his mercantile business. ft 9 The music at the vesper service at St. Paul's Church this afternoon will be unusually inter esting, Mrs. Kitty Thompson Berry, Miss Marguerite Eichorn, tho Schubert Quartette, and others are to reinforce tho regular choir. Hosewig's vespers will bo sung and the parties named will contribute solo numbors. Dr. Bischoff 16 just completing arrangements ior his annual concert oourso to he given at the Congregational Church during the present season. He has engaged eminent local talent to assist at these performances and tho work of Dr. BiBchoff is too well and favorably known to need any comment. He has also secured tho services of the Washington Musical Club to assist in one concert which will be an ad tional attraction to this already popular series. Tho series of entertainments given during tho past week at Willard Hall for the benefit of destitute ex-Confederate veterans, was completely successful, artistically and finan cially. It was pleasing to observe in the audiences tho faces of many war-Bcarred vet erans men who had fought against the very ones they were now assisting by their pres ence. The entertainments were in the charge of the Woman's Auxiliary Ex-Confederate Aid Society, and that their appeal for aid was generously responded to on tho part of our local artists is evidenced by the long list of those who contributed to the success of the enterprise. Undoubtedly tho greatest suc cesses were achieved by MUs Amy Hare and Mr. Leo Wheat, pianists; Mrs. Kitty Thompson Berry, Miss Fielding Koselle, and Miss Hunt, vocalists; and Miss Walbridge, reader. Mr. Wheat aroused the audience on Tuesday evening to tho highest pitch of ex citement by hi6 vigorous performance of "Dixie." Miss Hare was heard in public for the first time since her return from abroad, and her brilJiaut execution aud refined method were especially admired. The "Pattieon Waltz Song," rendered by Mrs. Berry proved to be the mo6t popular vocal number and was received with the greatest enthusiasm. The selection by -the Misses Roselle and Hunt were Jess brilliant but were charmingly 6ung. The accompanists were Messrs. Edward H. Droop, Henry Xunder, and William Wal decker. Among the others contributing to the tbreo programmes wero Mrs. T. B. Buxtong Mies Lillian Dalley, Miss A. V. Dorsey, Mis, Mario Roelker, a group of Baltimore ladles; Professor Bernays, Messrs. Howard Burr, E. G. Davis, Halleck Donoho. Hans Robert, Richard M. Johnston, E. B. Hay, and tho Washington Mandolin, Guitar, and Banjo Club. On Thursday evening tho members of tho Columbia Gleo Club assembled in tho "box ing" room of tho Columbia Athletic Club Houso for their first "practice evening." A surprisingly largo number of members wcro present, and tho director, Mr. E. H. Droop, after a trial of tho voices, discovered that ho had at his disposal no less than soventecn en thusiastic young athletes, "eacer for tho fray," while many others are about to join. Mr. Droop expresses himself as more than pleased with tho interest shown by tho members of tho club, and expects to havo a surpriso in 6toro for tho non-musical members at an oarly date. Tho following named gentlemen at present constitute tho club: First tenors, Gibson Colgate, C. L. Sturtovant, M. D. Hen soy, W. H.D. Welsh, aud Frank McDermott. Secoud tenors, Andrew Miller, Will Butter worth, aud W. Mooney. First bass, G. F. Glbbs, A. T. King, J. H. Welsh, F. P. Leech, and E. A. Byrnes. Second bass, Harry Rap ley, G. H. Clements. A, P.
