M1LDRKD One of the outstanding events to be presented by the Helena Community Concerts association will be the joint recital by Mildred Billing, harpist, and Marcel Hubert, cellist, at the Consistory temple next Saturday night. Curtain will be at 8.15 o'clock. Considered by many critics the foremost v, oman harpist of the day, Mildred Dilltng has many outstanding achievements to her credit. Her performances In America have duplicated her continental triumphs which started her upward on the road to permanent success, the height of which she has siflce reached and maintained. She Is one of the most convincing arguments for the harp as a solo Instrument. She not only has technical brilliance in her art, but a stage presence subtly and charmingly in accord with the golden instrument at which, she sits. Marcel Hubert, the brilliant young French cellist, was destined to the career of a virtuoso from an early childhood. When a little boy of four, he already evidenced his love for the cello. One day his sister, a pupil of Cortot and the winner of a first prize at the Paris conservatoire, discovered her small brother playing on a cello DILL1NG that was nothing but a chair-leg with a bow that was nothing but a piece of wood--and singing with a quite unsteady voice a fheme of a Beethoven symphonv. This incident BO impressed Cor- tot that he insisted the child be prepared for the study of his favorite Instrument. After a thorough general grounding in music and two years' study of tne piano, the boy commenced his cello studies with Cros St. Ange of the Paris conservatoire and at 10 became the pupil of the great master, Andre Hekking. At 11 Marcel Hubert made his first concert tour of France and at 13 wo's the famous first prize at the Paris conservatoire. He met with immediate success and played with al! the important orchestras and famous conductors ot France. During his first trip to the United States, Marcel Hubert gave a series of recitals in New York and Philadelphia under the auspices of Mr. Rodman Wanamaker, and a concert tour covering Canada. Following his formal New York debut, the cellist has been applauded throughout the east, where he has given recitals in such cities as Boston, Detroit, Washington, Pittsburgh and many others.
