A rare musical treat awaits Will

27, when Gustaf Holmquist, the
world-known singer of Chicago, will
give a song recital at the Willmar
Gustaf Holmquist, within the last
few years, has made himself an en
viable place among the bassos of the
United States. Possessing a voice
of exceptionally rich, sympathetic
quality, of great power and of wide
range, he is peculiarly fitted for ev
ery kind of public concert work from
oratorio and festival performances
to song recitals and private musi
cales. His successes with the lead
ing choral societies of the country,
as the bass soloist in Handel's
"Messiah," "The Creation" of Haydn
Mendelssohn's "Elijah" and "St.
Paul," Gounod's ''Redemption" and
kindred works prove him an oratorio
singer par-excellence His song re
citals have been the subject of most
enthusiastic approval, his interpre
tation of the standard German,
French and English songs winning
him onlyv highest commendation, and
his authorative rendition of the
Swedish folk and art songs lending
peculiar interest and novelty to his
It seems needless to publish press
notices regarding Mr. Holmquist
From an almost endless number we
select the following:
Pans, Gil Bias, Dec. 20, 1910—
Pure vocahsm in a most pleasing
manner was set forth in the songs
"Chants du Pelerin" and "Nouvelle
Chanson Bachique" sung by M. Gus
taf Holmquist with admirable art and
a voice at the same time large and
persuasive. Those who heard from
him at "Gil Bias" wish to applaud
him soon at our grand orchestra con
oloist, Mr. Gustaf Holmquist, a pow
erful bass-baritone, became the pub
lic's favorite. His representation of
Schubert's "Great Is Jehovah" and
Wagner's "Eveningstar' was received
with thunderous applause.
Chicago Tribune, 1911—Mr. Gus
taf Holmquist was the principal solo
ist on the program given at Orches
tra hall. The distinguished basso
displayed a refined and authoritative
interpretative art, and a control of
the varied resources of his splendid
voice, in an aria by Gounod and
Swedish folk songs.
This will be the first appearance
of Mr. Holmquist at Willmar, and we
feel certain that he will be greeted
by a well filled house.
