Practical/ Every Seat In Club House Filled With Enthusiastic Hearers. The concert given by tjie Covina Choral Union, under the direction of Mr. H. N. Wells in the Womans Club House Thursday evening was patronized by an audience that filled practically every seat In the hall. Mrs. W. E. Wiseman of Long Beach rendered the principle soprano solos. Miss Anita T. Dodge of Pasadena and Mrs. C. W. Jones of Alhambra sang one of the most pleasing numbers on the program, the duct with chorus, "I Waited For The Lord," by Mendels- shon, and Miss Maude Thompson was heard to good effect In the mixed quartette and trio numbers. Mr. Henry L. Marshal) sang Mendols- shon's "If With All Your Hearts" from the oratorio Elijah. The chorus of thirty-five voices was hoard perhaps with the most, appreciative effect on the opening number, Mo/art's "(llorla,"which was followed by "The Kadlont Morn Halh Panned Away," by Woodward. Tin- only secular number of tho evening was tho old song by Arno-Kox, "The Lass With tho l)olicuto Air," sung by Mrs. Wiseman and mixed quur- t.-ttc, composed of Roy lllanchard, tenor; Miss Mimdo V. Thompson, soprano; Mrs. I). K. Huff, contralto; and !l. N. Wolls, bass. "1 Waited Kor the Lord" liy Mrs. .lonos and Miss Dodge and chorus wan received very well by t!ie audience. The forty -second psalm as rendered in cantata form, "As The Hurt. Pauls", by Mendelssohn, formed the second portion of the concert. In this cantata Mrs. Wiseman sung "Kor My Soul Thlrsti'th KurCod," "MyTvur.-i Have lleen My Meat," "My Cod Wiih- in Me Is My Soul Cast Down," and "The Lord Hath Commanded." In this last numl'cr the soprani) was augmented by a male quartette, coii- HistMis of Messrs. Richard Drapoi. leiior: S. .1. Walton, second tenur; W A., first bass and Ora King, hi-roiid bas.s. Mrs. Wiseman's interpretation of these ilillirull arias met with the lull appreciation ol the audience. Her brilliant \nice iu per led effectiveness and power. The -A..rk of Mr. H. N.

The foundation laid by Mr. Wells, In his careful, conscientious work of drilling the slngern Is of a nature to build better music In the community, and upon this fact alone rests the triumph of the affair. Later In Ihe season another concert will be given, pOBalbly of a mixed secular and sacred order, but it is in tne preparation fo r thew concerts that success will be attained, if any. The community owes much to Mr. Wells for thin preliminary step toward better understanding of the best In music. Financially the concert flldO was a success, for the receipts were quite a little in excess of expenses, which was all that W.IH desired. The chorus was composed of the following people! Sopranos--Meta I'Srunjos, Mrs. O. D. .JoriningK, Mrs. J. L. Matthews, Miss McVoa, Miss Stowell, Miss Wynne, Mrs. S. .1. Walton, Miss Hodol. Cnrmon and Victoria flrijalva, Mrs. D. Eymari Huff, Mrs. Andrew McAilort, Miss Ada Hlanohard, Mrs. E. P. Warnor. Tenors—fJ. W. Asohoribrorinor, Roy lili'inoliiird, Richard Draper, D. Eyrnan Huff, William Hoogemlyk, Ronald Taylor, H. J. Walton. Ufissos—E. C. lilanchard, Edwnrd Kollar, Andrew McAllon, 10. A. Sprot- to, W. A. Loo, Ora King, Edwin Murphy. In discussing tho Instrumental portion of the program, not a llttk praise can be said of tho thirty n^ees rendering tho overture, "Lustplol" (Kola liola Op. T.',) by the high school orchestra. Tho Covina audiences have had occasion to hear this aggregation of young musicians many times, but In the ensemble on this evening, F'rof. R. W. Groom, the musical instructor proved that his work In the schools Is mooting with phonom- Inal success. When It. is remembered that five years ago Covina possessed no Instrumental organization of any kind, the strides which the community has taken In this direction are worthy of comment. Alec W. Anderson, pianist and organist for balance of the difficult choruses with firm accompaniment. His work throughout the concert and from the Inception of the society has been praiseworthy, and much of tho success has been brought about through his efforts. Death of a Former Citizen.
