Speaks of Choral Forming

Some facts that even members of)

| Harrisburg is proud of her choral i
• society, und well she may be. To or-;
ganize a musical society like the one j
before which 1 have the pleasure of
making this address is more than the |
work of a few hours. No; it needs i
time, sacrifice, hard work, financial'
and influential aid; indeed it could
scarcely be maintained successfully.
without these prerequisites.
The two best musical organizations
of former times in Harrisburg were
the Thursday Club, under the direction |
of Professor Carrol, and the Mozart
Society .which started a little later.;
! when Professor Rich came from the |
j South to become Us director. 1 must.
confess that these two splendid socie
i ties of our city begot a little rivalry, 1
! which finally came to considerable:
1 discord. Xow, while we have to treat j
lof discord in music, in order to learn I
I what harmony is. by too much of it 1
we forget harntony. Both these so
jcieties soon ceased to exist and Har- J
risburg for a short time was without |
any musical organization as far as
! vocal music is concerned, except tliatj
jof church choirs, and what delight'
was furnished music lovers through |
I private gatherings.
j 1 have here a roll and resolution of;
tthe Harrisburg Board of Trade in 1593 j
'preceding the yearly meeting of the
j Pennsylvania State Music Teachers' j
I Association, which was then to be held j
jin Scranton, inviting that body to ;
| come here in 1 894, and hold their ses
sions in the Opera House. As this so-j
ciety was endeavoring to induce the
• legislature to include music in the cur- j
riculums required in all State schools, l
it Was set forth as nn inducement to I
j the association to come here, that the.
I Legislature would at that time be in j
I session. The invitation was accepted,
: and I was elected to the presidency I
| for that year (1894.)

duce him to take hold was a problem
that was solved only after four trips

The game_was practically won; for
when some Ilarrlsburg friends who
had refused to join learned that the
notable leader, Dr. Gilchrist, had been
engaged, they told me that they could
not afford to stay out of the chorus.
The Rev. Dr. Chambers 1 knew as a
friend of music, and he was prevailed
upon to become the chairman of the
chorus and later of the reception
committee. Amid the enthusiasm that
followed it was practically an easy
task to form the choral society. The
Harrisburg singers with few excep

lessor Decevee at the piano will endear l

from president down to stage hand,

that without the splendid encourage

"The Blindness of Virtue" is the
title of one of the most discussed and
at the same time one of the few plays
on a new and daring theme to receive
the endorsement of the cultured peo
ple. It will be at the Majestic thea
ter Monday and Tuesday with a Tues
The play comes at a time when the
subject is being discussed. that a girl
budding into womanhood should re
ceive proper instruction from her
mother in the sacred and beautiful
obligation of motherhood, and that
girls just out of short dresses should
be enlightened upon sex relationship
that they may be adequately equipped
to fight all the dangers that may be
set them. "The Blindness of Virtue"
is the first play to deal with this sub
ject in a firm and vigorous way, point
ing out to parents by example intro
duced in characterization, the obliga
tion they owe their children to in
struct them in an enlightened man
ner on this important question. The
subject is understood to be dealt with
delicately but frankly which it should
be if it is dealt with at all.
