Plan For County Choral Society MUSIC LOVERS TALKING OF SUM MER MUSIC FESTIVAL WITH 150 CHORUS Music lovers In Enterprise arc dis cussing plans looking to the organiza tion of a Choral society to Include singers from every part of Wallowa county, the Intention being to unite the various sections Into one grand chorus of at least 150 voices. In a summer music festival extending ovei two or three days. If the singers of the county will unite in the mat ter. It Is proposed to engage Prof, toyer, of Portland, who will give his undivided attention to the training of the chorus during the months of July and August. The good results of such training by a man of Prof. Boyer's exceptional ability are so ap parent a3 to require no demonstra tion. Prof. Eoyer Is now at work with the Portland chorus for the annual spring festival to be held In that city In March next. The chorus num bers 503 and everything points to a triumphant success. In the New Year's Issue of the Oregonlan, Frederick W. Goodrich, president of the Portland Festival chorus, contributes the following, which will doubtless Interest Prof. Boyer's many friends in Wallowa county: "Here In Portland is a permanent choral organization which those in charge have determined o make the best of its kind in the Pa clfic We3t. Composed of many of the finest musicians in the city, it cannot fall to exercise a powerful Influence on the musical life of the entire section. It would be making invlduous comparisons to mention the names of the many professional mu sicians who sing In Its ranks, but every musician in the city, worthy of the name, Is either singing or exert ing a poweful Influence In its favor. The director is Wm, H. Boyer, a vet eran in the cause of choral music. A flnq trainer and brilliant chorus master, no one Is more fitted thai he to direct such an organization."
