THE MUSICAL GITANAS' GRAND EVENING CONCERT. The concert held by the Musical Gitanas, on Thursday evening, July 26th, at the Public Hall, proved quite a success. There was a fair audience, and as regards the programme, the quality of tone and variety throughout was fault- less. The list of artistes was as follows :Miss Kathleen Maccabe, Prima-Donna (Liverpool Operatic Society) Mr Sidney Worthington, of London Heir Karl Birvell, F.O.S., Novelty Ventriloquist; the Musical Gitanas,-Miss Jennie Mansell, Miss Connie Arden, Mr Bur ton Douglas, and Mr Carl Melville (pianist). The programme, being slightly altered, was given as follows :— Pianoforte solo, "Morris Dance" (E. German), Mr Carl Melville; song, "Star of Bethlehem" (Adams), Miss Kathleen Maccabe serio song, Oh, Mr Nobody," Miss Connie Arden song, "The Yeoman's Wedding Song," and, as an encore, How do I love thee," Mr Sidney Worthington; song, "Mona" (Adams), Miss Jennie Mansell; ventriloqual entertainment, by Herr Karl Birvell, F.O.S., who introduced his funny family of nine. Part If.P a,ioforte solo, "Hongarish Tanze" (Saroskowsky), Mr Carl Melville song, Off to Philadelphia," Mr Burton Douglas; humorous duett (in character), "Sally Waters (encored), Miss Connie Arden and Miss Jennie Mansell song, Dear Heart," and, as an encore, "The Minstrel Boy," Miss Maccabe; song (serio), I can tell by the twinkle in your eye" (encored), Miss Connie Arden; song, Nazareth," Mr Sidney Worthington song, In old Madrid," Miss Jennie Mansell," song, I dreamt I dwelt in Marble Halls." The enter- tainment then concluded with a most laughable drawing-room sketch, entitled "A Kiss in the Dark," fully sustained by the Musical Gitanas. All of the artistes are worthy of special praise, Miss Kathleen Maccabe fully sustaining her pre- vious reputation so often quoted under the legend Vide Liverpool Press." Her vocal ability has won for her great renown, and has deservedly been enthusiastically lauded by the English Press. Mr Sidney Worthington, of London, who has for many years visited the Bay, surprised everyone by the great elasticity of his cultivated voice, the upper and lower notes being clear, melodious, and of immense volume, and his expression and enunciation being perfect. The three songs, especially "Nazareth," were quite an unexpected treat. May this, his debut at Colwyn Bay, not be his final appearance there, for we all hope to hear him again ere long and more than once. Herr Karl Birvell, F.O.S., cleverly managed his little people, and as a ventriloquist is fairly in the fore- front his humour humourised everyone, and he was frequently applauded at intervals. We may also say that the Musical Gitanas surpassed all their previous efforts, at this (their benefit) concert perhaps the most taking item in their portion was the humorous duett, Sallv Waters" (in character), which was encored and repeated. Taken all in all, this is by far the best entertain- ment so far this season and the accompanist deserves great credit for the ability shown in the performance of responsible duties. The sketch, which was most amusing, was excellently placed upon the stage. The proceedings wound up with the English National Anthem.
