Grand Performances at Peatre. On Thursday and Saturday evenings, at the Drill Hall, Pentre, two grand performances of the famous cantatta entitled "The Burning Ship" were given by Hebron Welsh Baptist Choir, Ton, under the able conductorship of Mi- D.

The choir was ably assisted by the following artistes viz. sopranos, Mrs Cordelia Rets, Hopkinstown, Pontypridd, Miss Sarah James, 'Cwmpark, and Miss Mary Jenkins, Ton; contralto, Miss S. Davies, Ton; tenor, Mr J. Thomas (Bos-y-de), a member of the Rhondda Royal Glee Society; bass, Mr Ben Devonald, Ton; and violinist, Miss Deborah Ttees, Hopkinstown, Pontypridd. The first part of the programme included a pianoforte duet by Messrs D. Lloyd and T. J Price, rendered in a very masterly manner. Miss Sarah James gave the "Star of Bethle- hem," followed by a solo by Mr J. Thomas (Eos-y-de), Ton, whose rendering was loudly applauded. Miss Deborah Rees, Hopkinptown Pontypridd, favoured the. audience with a violin solo "Hungarian Dance," which was very ably executed. This young lady has been successful in obtaining four scholarships at the South Wales and Monmouthshire School of Music, Cardiff, for violin and pianoforte play- ing. Mr Ben Devonald, Ton, sang "The Skipper" in an excellent manner, followed by Mrs Cordelia Edwards Rees, Hopkinstown, who sang "Merry Sunshine," and for an encore magnificently rendered "Clychau Aberdovey. which was well received. A duett by Messrs J. Thomas (Eos-y-de) and Mr Ben Devonald both of fwhom appeared in the best of form, terminated the first portion of the proceed- ings. The second part, which was entirely devoted to the cantatta, was gone through without a hitch from beginning to end. The singing surpassed anything heard in this district before, and reflected the greatest credit upon the choir and its conductor. The costumes and the scenery presented a most attractive appearance. The accompanists were Messrs D. TIoyd, Tonypandy, and T. J. Price, Ton, who presided with their usual efficiency. The proceeds were devoted to the Band of Hope Choir of the above chapel.
