ABERAYRON. OPERETTA PERFORMANCE.—On Friday last, the British school children choir gave their sixth annual performance, when the operetta Red Riding Hood" was performed in character. For many years past, this concert has been regarded as a treat by the tcwnspeople, and never have their expectations been disappointed. In fact, the attendance has been so large in every performance, that a repetition has had to be given on a subsequent evening, many scores of people having been refused admission. Despite the fact that the admission price was ex- ceptionally high (2s. and Is.), the room was over crowded on Friday, and many failed to obtain admittance. Before the performance began a miscellaneous first part was gone through, which included a selection of Welsh airs on the violin and the harmonium by Mr James Williams, and Mr L. J. Roberts, B.A.; songs by Miss H. M. Davies (New Quay), and Mr J. R. Phillips, the accompanist being Mrs Roberts. The per- formance of the operetta was according to general testimony, one of the best ever given here, almost all the pieces being rapturously- applauded. The character of Red Riding Hood was sustained by Miss Mary Jones, that of mother by Miss H. M. Davies, and that of the woodman by Mr J. R. Phillips, the schoolmaster, who was the conductor, and to whose pains- taking efforts the success of their annual per- formance is chiefly due. County Councillor J. M. Howell presided, Mr James Williams was the violinist, and Mr Roberts the accompanist. A vote of thanks to the performers was unanimously passed on the motion of Mr D. Phillips, C.E., and it was announced that a repetition per- I formance would be given.
