Royal Hungarian Orchestra. .
This glorious organization is certain to delight all lovers of
orchestral music. They are genuine Hungarians, are born musi
cians. Each member is a soloist. This original Hungarian Or
chestra of Budapest is composed of seven thorough and compe
tent musicians who have attained their perfection by long service
together, and constant and exacting practice. It is the only Hun
garian orchestra in the world which plays aside from modem
classical selections the popular music of the day. The work of
this splendid organization may be emphasized by the fact that
their repertoire includes fifteen hundred of the best known com
' positions of modern times.
The special feature of the Orchestra is the Dulcimer which is
an original Hungarian Instrument, and makes a valuable addi
tion to the Orchestra furnishing body to the music, For pleasing
concerts this orchestra has no equal. Monroe City Chatauqua,
