Grand Concert at Penarth. On Thursday evening, Mr C. Emlyn Jones, the new Welsh tenor, with his celebrated London Concert Party, visited Penartb, and gave a Concert of excep- tional merit in Andrews' Large Hall. The attendance was very small, a great contrast to the crowd which assembled the week previous to hear the Snowflake Minstrel troupe. Rarely has such a treat been afforded Penarthians, and when it is considered that a strong local committee undertook the management, and have for weeks paiit been exerting themselves 10 make the Concert a success, it is to be regretted that their efforts were not rewarded with a bumping house. Since Mr Jones last visited Penartb, his party has undergone several changes, but we shall not be wrong in saying that the artistes who appeared on Thursday night, without exception, merited the very highest encomiums. The programme opened with a quartette, otrange Adventure," and was followed by Mr Barry Lyndon, of the Queen's Glee Singers, who rendered" Big Ben in a masterly manner, the piece being specially suited to his deep bass voice. Miss Mabel Johnson, who possesses a sweet soprano voice, sang V\Tith my guitar," being loudly applauded. Mr C. Emlyn Jones was in the best of voice, aud sang I" Come into the garden. Maud," for which he was enthusiastically encored- He responded by singing The Holy City- Miss Jose Dubois was also encored for her manipula- tion of the violin, "Reverie Patticticque.

The aria, "Roberto on lucbe Adoro," by Miss Clara Dowle, the leading soprano, was exquisitely rendered, and the duet, We 11 laug and King," was greatly appreciated by the audience, the executants being Mr Jones and Mr Barry Lyn- don. The par.-song "Moonlight," by the party, terminated the first part of th programme. The second part of the programme consisted of a quartette, The sea hath its pearls"; pianoforte solo, Rhapsody," Miss Marie Rees; song. Christe Eleison, Mr Barry Lyndon; song, "Might."
