Daniel Beddoe Visits the Rhondda. tf\ laWt^ PENYGRAIG BOY'S WONDERFUL CAREER. It is with the greatest of pleasure that we welcome back to the land of his birth Mr. Daniel Beddoe, the great tenor singer, whose in the American musical world is a sine qua non. It is 21 years since Mr. Beddoe last set his foot in Wales, and in the meantime he has been making a name for himself as, according to the American Press, No American tenor in recent years has so completely monopolised the oratorio and concert field as Daniel Beddoe." Mr. Beddoe was born in Penygraig, and even when quite a young fellow .working in the mine he was fortunate enough to win at several Nationals. He had a voice then, but, as he told the boys of the Mid-Rhondda Orpheus Glee Society on Wednesday evening last, he had had to work hard to attain the eminence he now holds. You must get to understand the author's meaning, and temper that with (tipping his forehead) a little intelligence." Mr. Beddoe has appe3!red in most of the important New York oratorio performances, such as "Judas Maccabeus!Dream of Geron- tius," Apostles," and many others. Mr. Beddoe's success at the last Cin- cinnati Festival, May, 1908, when he sang the leading tenor parte in Bach's Passion Music," the Children's Cru- sade," and other important works, was so overwhelming, that the great tenor was at once re-engaged for the next Cin- cinnati Music Festival of May, 1910. It will be a great pity, and indeed a loss for the Rhondda not to have an op- portunity of hearing Mr. Beddoe sing in a public concert before he returns to the land of his adoption. Possibly our worthy Male Voice Party conductor, Mr. Emrys Richards, might take the hint, and would arrange a concert in conjunc- tion with the Mid-Rhondda. Orpheus Glee Society?
