The Artists Course of five concerts tobe given at the National Theater under the management of Mrs. Wil son-Greene, will be opened November 12, with a recital by Mary Garden. whose fame ks actress as well as singer has given her a very individ ual place in the art world. Musically Miss Garden is the child of France. To her is due the remark able predominance of French operas In the repertory of the Chicago Opera Company. And to Mary Garden must be awarded the palm of establishin'g a definite and definitive status for French opera of the modern type. Debussy as well as Massenet, in the United States. The arrival of the picturesque prima donna from Europe Is awakening all sorts of speculation from the fair sex as to what 'our Mary" will wear. One thing has been predicted, that Miss Garden's fetching silhopette will be hopelessly out of range of successfti imitations. Other artists in the artists' course will include Jan Kubelik, world re nowned violipist. on January 12; on December 8, Sophie Braslau. deligh-a ful contralto of the Metropo itan Opera; 'on January 27, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra; Frederick Stock, conductor, with Maggie Teyte as the soloist; aqd op March 31 the joint recital of Casals, Nauer and Thibaud will close a most unusual course of concerts.
