Ton. We arc glad to announce that Mr Edward D. Thomas, Ocean Offices, Treorky, has been appointed organist to the Hebron Welsh Bap- tist Chapel, Ton. Mr Thomas, who is well- known in the locality commenced his duties on Sunday last- We wish Mr Thomas further success in this particular direction. The Hebron Choir, Ton, acquired a great and unprecedented distinction last week, when they so successfully performed the cantata, "The Burning Ship" at the Drill Hall, Pen- tre. The occasion was a memorable one, both from a musical and financial point of view. Every preparation had been made to train the choiv up to a pitch of excellence, and under tho able conduetorship of Mr D. J. Price, they ably acquitted themselves, and fairly stormed the audiences. The artistes, one and all, wera most favourably received, the renderings both in the miscellaneous portion and the perform- ance bng really appreciable. The appear- ance of that promising soprano, Miss Sarah James, Cwmpark, was quite welcome, and her singing was really fine. We hear that Miss James intends entering on a course of study, and if events already forecasted prove satis- factory, the Academy may receive another daughter of "Gwlad y Gan" into the fold. We predict a brilliant future for her, and her par- ticularly sweet voice only needs further cuL tivation to ensure a, permanent success. A repetition of the performance by the Hebron Choir is being mentioned as a means of ren- dering Miss James assistance, and it would be a glorious help. From a. financial point of view the performance must of necessity prove a huge success. The spacious hall was filled to overflowing on both nights, a large number being refused admittance. To the excellence ot the concerts, with the indefatigable efforts of the officials, we attribute this hearty re- sponse by the public. The committee, who worked up the affair, are to be congratulated on t.fc:i' untiring efforts, which exacted fuch a surprising appreciation. We compliment them, and the responsible official who under- h ok the secretarial duties. Mr T. R. Thomas Bee Hive, who most arduously sacrificed time and labour in devotion to the cause which he so Jiobly upheld. Mr Thomas deserves oar credit for the businesslike and successful man- ner in which he manipulated the preliminary business which ultimately turned out so mag- nificent. It is rumoured that the choir intend repeating the performance in their owo locali- t- at an early date, and also intend visiting other localities in the immediate neighbour- hood. If they should clo so, the reputation griined by them last week will have sufficient influence to prove another powerful attrac- tion.
