Brasted, THE NATIONAL SCHOOLS CONCERT.—On Friday evening, August 24th, the annual concert in aid of the parochial National Schools, was held in the Assembly Rooms, which were filled with a large and appreciative audience. In the unavoidable absence of Mr Frost (owing to illness), the duties of chairman were kindly undertaken (at a very short notice) by Mr Woodall, Tanycoed, who in a pleasing manner successfully guided the proceed- ings to a very satisfactory termination. The pro- gramme was considerably extended owing to the frequent encores given to the various items. The pianoforte solos "Tarentella" (J. T. Linekar, Colwyn Bay), andl" Cabaletta" (Lack) were most brilliantly rendered by Miss Landon, and "The song that reached my heart" was sweetly sung by Miss Mattie Lloyd. The Welsh songs "Can Tywysog" and "Llwybr y Wyddfa," were very well rendered by Messrs J. Conway and Edward Davies and were encored, as was also the Welsh duett "Call to arms," which was most spiritedly sung by Messrs Edward Davies and Elias Evans. The Rev D. Howell Griffith, of Abergele, gave a capital rendering of "Arise and follow Me" (Blumenthal) and "The Bedouin love song" (Pinsuti), which was encored. Miss Amy Ellis Jones displayed a very considerable amount of skill in her rendering of the violin solos, being ably accompanied on the pianoforte by her sister, Miss Marie Ellis Jones. Miss Williams's most sweet rendering of Blumenthal's "Sunshine and rain," elicited an enthusiastic encore, and the old favourite "Minstrel Boy" was given. Seldom has an audience listened to more charming and highly fiinshed singing than that of Miss Edith M. Roberts, of Chester, who was most deservedly encored each time, and readily responded, her rendering of songs seeming perfect. A new feature in this year's programme was a Spanish song (with guitar accompaniment) by Miss Nellie Pierce, which was very much appreciated. Dr M. Venables-Williams's humorous songs, were as usual received with acclamation, and a most determined and enthusiastic demand for encores, was made on both occasions. Altogether, the evening was a most enjoyable one, and fully sus- tained the high character that these concerts have always borne. Thanks are due to Misses Landon, Ellis Jones and Nellie Lloyd for their able accompaniment on the most excellent piano- forte kindly lent by Dr M. Venables-Williams. The room was most tastefully decorated, by Miss Lloyd and Miss Jennie Jones, with choice flowers and plants kindly lent for the occasion by Mr and Mrs Frost, Minydon. Before the singing of the English National anthem, MrWilks, Gorphwysfa, in a most eloquent speech proposed a hearty vote of thanks to the artistes and the chairman, and this was briefly seconded by the Vicar THE COLWYN BRASS BAND'S CONCERT.—At the Assembly Rooms, on Thursday evening, August 31st, a concert was held by the Brass Band, the proceeds going towards purchasing new instru- ments. The Musical Gitanas (who are now on a tour through Wales), were advertised to take part, but at the last moment sent word (from Fes- tiniog) of their inability to attend. The Colwyn Band, a fortnight previous, went to Penmaen- mawr to assist in a concert in the Gitana s aid, tree of charge; and, on that understanding, the Gitanas were to assist at this concert, free. Not- withstanding this disappointment, a capital concert was enjoyed, local talent ably filling the gaps on the programme, and, in the absence of Mr W. F. Rees, Mr G. F. Woodall (Tan y coed) presided. After a short address by the chairman, the Band opened with a grand march, "The war march of the Priest." The remainder of the programme was rendered as follows:—song, "Death of Nelson," J. Conway; song, "Lost little Dogie," Mr J. Henson (of Rhyl); song, Miss Williams (London); song, "Yes, let me like a Soldier fall," Mr Llewelyn Jones; song, Y tair mordaith," Mr E. C. Evans song, Ora Pro Nobis," Miss Mattie Lloyd musical enter- tainment (encored), Mr Henson; duett, "Ar Ian afonydd Babel," Messrs LI. Jones and E. C. Evans; whistling solo, "March of the Men of Harlech," Mr Brookes Jones; song, Miss Wil- iams (London); laughable discourse, Mr Henson; musical selection, The Band; song, Miss Williams; song, "Alice where art thou," Mr E. Prestatyn Davies; song, "Arm, arm, ye Brave," Mr Hugh Williams; song, "Dfio bach," Miss Mattie Lloyd; ''The Charge of the Light Brigade," Mr Henson; song, "Revenge," Mr H. Williams; song, Miss Mattie Lloyd song, Mr Henson duett, 0 gartref yr Eryr," Messrs J. Conway and E. Davies; finale, "God save the Queen." The accompanist throughout the evening was Miss Nellie Lloyd. A vote of thanks to the Chairman was proposed by the Rev. J. Roberts (curate), and seconded by Maenan.
