--A R r. Musical plilili Notes. Next week will be an unusually musical one for London Welshmen, and as nearly all the best talents will appear at the several "Grand" Concerts, the programmes ought to prove very attractive. The first in importance however will be the Treorky Boys at Queen's Hall, on Monday night, for which nearly all the seats have already been booked and the remaining un- sold tickets recalled from the local agents. It will therefore be necessary for those who have not been fortunate enough to secure one to apply at once to the secretary, Mr. Tudor Rhys, 10, Tottenham Street, or to the box office at the Queen's Hall. We are informed that Miss Mary Thomas will not be able to appear owing to some previous arrangement that could not be avoided. The secretary however has secured the service of Miss Nellie Asher, who with Miss May John will be the lady vocalists now. The annual concert of the I.O.G.T. at Jewin Chapel, on Tuesday evening was un- usually good, and the attendance was all that could be desired, apart from the musical attraction there was an address by the vener- able Good Templar, Plenydd," who is al- ways a draw with Welsh audiences. Messrs. Tom Thomas and Emlyn Davis gave some good renderings, as usual, and were enthusiastically received and had to respond to several recalls. Miss May John sang really well in her two songs, Cymru Fydd and The Heavenly Song," after both of which she had to respond to the audience's call. Miss Maggie Ellis presided at the pianoforte, and opened the proceedings with a well ex- ecuted solo, When we went a' gleaning." i; Following his recent success at the Royal Academy of Music, Mr. Gwilym Richards, of Newport, succeeded on Saturday last to win the Evill prize at that institution. At the Concert of the friends at Clapham, on the 25th, Mrs. Timothy Davies will also appear, and with such an array of talent the event ought to prove eminently successful to the cause at Lavender Hill. The R. S. Hughes' tombstone fund continues to increase and Mr. Herbert Emlyn announces the following addition this week: Mr. D. Jones, Farringdon St. 5s. Mr. Robert Jones „ 5s. Thomas Davies, London Rd.. 5s: Those interested in the movement, and every lover of R. S.'s music ought to be, should send their names and contributions without delay to Mr. Herbert Emlyn, 20, Lynton Rd., Brondesbury, N.W.
