An Open Letter

The Eisteddfod Choir.


The Eisteddfod Choir. To the Editor of THE WEEKLY NEWS. SIR,—I should like to call your readers' attention to the unfair and highly unsatis- factory treatment the Eisteddfod Choir ■received of the hands of the Finance Com- Inittee. A few weeks ago an account I appeared in your valuable paper announcing the fact that the above committee met; and to vote gratuities to those who had worked for the success of the Eisteddfod. Some of those few individuals received handsome sums of money for filling minor and insigni- ficant offices, while on the other hand the members of the choir were not recognised in any way, and the most of them worked most assiduously to ensure the success, and absolute efficiency of the choir. Several I know attended the rehearsals regularly with. out a miss, and came through all weather, and often under great inconvenience, and also purchased their own music, which was an item of some consideration in itself, especially to the staff notationists, and to those who were from the same family. I feel convinced that the least act of courtesy that the above mentioned com- mittee could have exercised was to provide the music free of charge to the members. The committee of Finance are undoubted- ly deserving of severe criticism, inasmuch as the Choral Union suffers greatly in many ways, as a result of the conduct of the Finance Committee. Antagonistic feel- ing runs high in the vicinity of Old Colwyn as well as other distant places, where the members of the late Eisteddfod Choir came from.—I am, etc., Colwyn Ray. DOUBLE BASS.
