MAESYCWMMER. CONCERT.—A first-class concert in aid of the chapoi funde was given at Tabor Chapel on Thursday evening. The concert oxcited special losai interest by reason of the appearance of Mr. Gwilym Wigley, now w^U known in music- al circles in London as one of the most promis- ing tenor singers of the day. Mr Wig-ley's family have bean associated with Tabor Cnapel for many years. Other well-known artistes also took part, and it was an open question as to which among them was most appreciated, for the crowded audience tumuituously applauded the efforts of each, but Illr Haydn Gunter's violin playing provoked the greatest enthusi- asm. Mr. D. Rees, solicitor, Pontypridd, pre- sided, and the appointment was an excellent one in every re^i>act. A vote of thanks, pro- posed by Mr. Brice Thomas during an interval in the programme, seconded by Mr. Thomas Wigley, nicely expressed the conciseness and brevity which distinguished his introductory re- marks. Mr. D. Rees, in acknowledging the compliment, said that it wae the association of the minister at Pontypridd which had caused him to accept the invitation to preside with roadiness and pleasure; but the excellent eolos lie had heard, indeed any one of them, was worth coming from Pontypridd to hear. The artistes wero:—Tenor, Mr. Gwilym Wigley, of London; bass, Mr. Harry Ciist, of Ebbw Vale; contralto, Madame Sambrook-Jones. Maesteg; soprano, Miss Lizzie Jenkins, Cardiff; violinist, Mr. Haydn Gunter, Clifton; accompanist, Mits Annie Rees, L.R.A.M.. Maesycwmmer. Pro- gramme:—Mr. Harry Clist, "Revenge" and "Honour and Arms" Mr. G. Wigley, "Mova, my girl," and "The Sailor's Grave"; Madame Sambrook- Jones, "The Enchantress" and "Abide with me" Miss LizÚe Jenkins, "Heart's Desire" and "Va,inka's Song" Mr. Haydn Gunter, "Romance" (Wieniowski), "Air Irland- aise" (Papini), and "Souvenir D'Amerik' (Vic- rix Temps); duetts, "Come, my heart's delight" (Messrs. Wigley and Clist), "Springtide" (Mme. Sambrook-Jones and Mis-, Lizzie Jenkins); quar- tette, "A Regular Royal Queen," the four ar- tistes. Nearly all the pieces were enthusiastic- ally encored and responded to, notwithstanding the Chairman's request to show consideration to the singers. The concert closed with the I' singing of "Hen Wlad fy Nhada-u."
