CARNARVON. CONCERT.âA grand concert, in aid of the musical education of Miss Jane Owen, Llandinorwic, the promis- ing pupil of Owain Alaw, took place in the National Schoolroom, which had been kindly lent for the occasion by the Rev. J. C. Vincent. The audience was large. The performers were the Snowdon Harmonic Society, under the leadership of Glanmarchlyn, (father of Miss Owen), and the Carnarvon Choir, conducted by Mr. H. Williams. Through the generosity of Captain Turner, the Royal Artillery Band, under the conductorship of Mr. Watts, rendered their effective assistance. Mr. Hay- den and Mr. R. Roberta were announced to preside at the pianoforte and harmonium, but we are sorry to have to add that the former did not attend. Mr. Roberts, however, efficiently presided at both instruments. The Carnarvon Choir were most warmly encored after sing- ing Gwlithyn" (Dewdrop), a first-class glee, composed by Mr. Roberti, which is getting very popular. The singing of the Carnarvon Choir reflects great credit on Mr. Williams. The performances of the Snowdon Harmonic Society were marked by much taste andsweetness. The Band, which have only been formed since the last twelve- months, played their pieces remarkably well. Miss Owen, on her appearance, was greeted with loud applause. Her rendering of Gwraig y Ni ilwr" (The Soldier's Wife), by Owain Alaw, was marked by great pathos and delicacy, forcibly reminding one of her teacher. She was encored, and then substituted it for The Blind Girl's Song." There is Music in the Fountain" was next given by Miss Owen, in which she was listened to with wrapt at- tention, and at its conclusion she was greeted with loud cheers, and she repeated it. Mr. Roberts played the ac- companiment of this piece remarkably well, in which the imitation of a fountain was very distinct aud beau- tiful. The Bells of Aberdovey" was also suug by Miss Owen. The rendering of this song was marked by much taste, and considering the performer to be but 13 years of age, was excellent. The easy manner in which the upper notes were sustained, proves that this young lady has a splendid voice, and that a brilliant future is in itore for her. The prolonged applause which followed the last piece compelled the younlr singer to respond to the call, and she sang Where the Bee sucks." Mr. Roberts, who is ever ready to promote any good object, volunteered his able services gratis, as did all the other performers. Mr. H. Williams deserves great praise for having exerted himself in every way, as he always does, to bring the concert to a successful issue, which was de- cidedly the case in this instance.
