FRODSHAM. CONCERT.âOn Wednesday evening, in the Drill Hall, Frodsham, Mr. Hibbertt held his fourth annual subscription concert, under the patronage of the Vicar and churchwardens of the Frodsham Parish Church. The artists included Miss Agnes Croxton (soprano), Miss Violet Monk (contralto). Mr. Egerton Snelson (tenor), Mr. Allistcr Proctor (baritone), Mr. Loui Parry (humorist), all of Chester; and Mr.. Edwin Hat- ton ('cellist) of Liverpool, with Mr. Hibbertt ZB accompanist. Miss Agnes Croxton, who made her debut to a Frodsham audience, shewed herself to be the possessor of a sweet and pleasing soprano voice in her admirable renderings of "She wandered down" (Clay) and "Come, Sweet Morning" (Lehmann). Miss Violet Monk, in renewing her acquaintance with Frodsham people, was equally successful, her rich contralto voice being heard to great advantage in Arditi's exacting "Dream of Home" and "Enchantress" (Hatton), which neocived, well-merited apprecia- tion. Mr. Proctor, always a favourite, although suffering from a cold, proved that his rich voice, full of resonance and power, has lost none of its telling effectiveness, his numbers, "Curfew" (Gould), "The Old Green Isle" Hibbertt), a new song composed by the promoter of the concert, and Lohr's charming little Irish melody, "The Little Irish Girl," affording him fine scope for his vocal capacities. Mr. E. Snelson won high praise for his rendition of "My Queen" (Blumen- thal). The duets, "Of fairy wand" (Wallace), fiom the opera. of "Maritana," by Miss Croxton and Mr. Proctor, and "Life's dream is o'er." by Miss Monk and Mr. Snelson, were beautifully given and warmly received, while the two quar- tettes, "Good night, beloved" (Pinsuti) and Ar- cher's humorous "Old King Cole," exemplified the perfect blending powers of the Chester party. One of the most enjoyable features of the even- ing was the 'cello playing of Mr. Edwin Hatton. Mr. Loui Parry sustained the humorous element in his own inimitable style, his sketches, "After all I've been" (Barrett), "The Hydropathic Treatment" and "It's a marvel how he does it," being characterised by genuine humour and re- fined wit.
