V A AMERICA’S , GREATEST TENOR' HERE MAY 3 Riceardo Martin, Proclaimed Ameri ca’s Greatest Tenor, To Visit Ox ford and the University. Oxford is to have the pleasure, in the near future, of welcoming a man who is known everywhere as the greatest tenor of American blood. Riceardo Martin is the man, and his coming to this city means that never before in the history of Oxford has a singer of such note and fame been scheduled to appear here in concert. Riceardo Martin comes on May 3 under the management of the Uni versity Lyceum, which was indeed very fortunate to secure "such a great artist on its course. It is said that they had to book Martin a year in advance to get him at all, and that when they did finally succeed in booking him for that date, it “teas only after much pleading and cor responding that the price of the great artist was brought down from one thousand dollars his regular price for one one-hour concert, to within the reach of the University Lyceum. Those in Oxford that know “who’s who” in the singing world already .know that no American tenor has attained a higher reputation than Martin, who today is right in the zenith of his vocal powers. He is a member of the Metropolitan Opera Company of New York, the Chicago Opera Association, and Royal Opera of Convent Garden, London. Several times Martin has taken the place of the great Caruso in operas, and car ried out the part perfectly. Martin is a musical attraction foi « all classes. He comes from an old and distinguished Kentucky family, | and his favorite song is “My Old Kentucky Home,” which he will in clude in his program at the Univer sity Chapel. His program will con sist of number^ from the most ex acting composers to the ballad, which is loved so^much by the general pub lic. Martin’s accompanist, Hubert Carlin, will render several piano so j los, and give the program a balance 'that only the voice and instrument in j combination can give. Martin has but one thought in |mind: that is to give his best and ; please all. In this way he cannot ;help but be. an attraction of great 1 magnitude. It is expected that the University | Chapel will be packed on the even ing of the Martin concert—even more I so than when Albert Spalding was here last year, because, since his, this will be his only appearance in | North Mississippi, music lovers from neighobring cities and towns will RICCARDO MARTN CROWDED OUT—The Office Cat, Federal court news and a lot cf live news had to be left over ’till next week.
