When the Chlcaso-Phllndelphia opera
company was organized for tlic 1M2-13
season Helen "Warrum was ono of the
first singers to ask Andreas Dlppel, the
director, for a hearing. One of his first
questions was as to her foreign training,
not that Dlppel is un-American, for he
recently became a naturalized citizen of
tho United Stales, but well, it was tho
only natural grand opera Interrogation.
Tho girl bit her Hp and frankly told him

UTAH SONGBIRD TO
LEAVE FOR EUROPE
Miss Emma. Lucy Gates has rccolved
a hurry call from her manager in.
Europe, tho noted Norhert Salter of Ber
lin, who has udvlsed the Utah songbird
that sho is booked for three concert's In
Scotland, beginning January 20. at Glas
gow. She will appear in two other con
certs In Scotland soon afterward, and
will then go to Germany to take up the
matter of her contract with the Roval
opera at Cassol.
MJss Gates's appearanco nt Cassol was
cut short through her prolonged Illness,
which necessitated her remaining here
through the summer and fall. Sho will
sail for Edinburgh about January 22, on
the Maurctanla, and will he accompanied
to Kurope by her father, Jacob F. Gules
of this city.
"Whether Miss Gales will continue hor
I engagement at Cassel, or make a new
contract, is something sho does not know
1 until she arrives on the ground.
It Is likely that Miss Gates will give
four concerts In Utah before leaving,
one each In Salt Lake. Ogden, Logan
and Provo, all out-of-town places having
urged her to visit them and give the
entertainments which had been an
nounced for last June, but which had to
be abandoned, n Ogden and Provo there
was a heavy advance sale, all of which
had to be rerundecf. Her Provo concert

Pupils Score Success.
The class recital given by the pupils
of Spencer Claweon. Jr.. In hl3 studio
rooms at 27 South State street last
evening proved a most nleasurable and
artistic success. Mr. Clawson himself
appeared us accompanist and was assist
ed in tho recital by Clarence Burton,
violinist, who again distinguished him
self. Tho nartlcinants In ill, r..

from those mentioned, .Included Kather

principal number of the evening was a.
piano quartette, Wagner's "Mclster
slngor orpseil," by Misses Evans. Spry.
June Farnsworlh and Whitney.
Orchestra Doing Well
Although It was the first reading of
that composition by the Salt Uike Phil
harmonic orchestra. Beethoven's second
symphony received an exceptionally ood
rendition at the orchestra's rehearsal last
One of the fuatures developed at the
rehearsal was the determination to ad
here to the original purpose and to at
tempt no concert until evcrv member of
the orchestra felt satisfied within him
self that he had attained a sufficient de
gree of excellence to Justify nubile ap
pearance. A proposal was made that
the orchestra announce two concert
dates for this season, but tho Idea was
abandoned upon the monibcrs being re
minded of their formerly announced pur
pose. Director Anton Pederscn, after the ve
hcarsal on Tuesday last, said that he
had never heard In a Salt L-ukfl organ
ization heretofore a violin section
that was so well ecir-adjustcd as Is the
present one In tho matter of tone and
unity of movement. This Is one of the
first of tho desiderata in forming a sym
phony orchestra and its achievement in
the prcsenL organization foretells a suc
cess that hitherto lias not been realized.
