Wednesday evening, October twentieth Madame Gadski is to appear in recital at the Coliseum. The fol lowing concerning her is of interest: At her song recital at the Academy of Music Monday afternoon, Mme. Jo hanna Gadski will sing the same pro gram in which she scored such success in Carnegie Hall. New York, last Sun day. The metropolitan critics are agreed that never in her career has the prima donna appeared to such advan tage, the following excerpt, from the New York Times being typical of the notices received: "Mme. Gadski's voice sounded rich and beautiful, and showed many of the finer qualities that have endeared her to lovers of good singing in thi3 city. It had power, luscious beauty of quality and dramatic color, and there i3 an especial and individual beauty in it in softer passages of sustained tone which she manages with exceed-! ing skill. In addition to her beautiful voice she has a sane and sincere feel ing for music, and what she accom plishes is felt to be the result of pains taking and careful effort. Her sing ing is that of the sincere artist." Jt . Mr. David Bispham has been secured to sing here some time In early Decem ber. The career of David Bispham. the well known baritone, shows what In defatigable work and a faith in self can accomplish.
