CONCERT AFTERTHOUGHTS SIR HENRY WOOD DELIGHTED WiTH SWANSEA CHOIR. The following are some of the opinions expressed after the concert given by the Swansea and District Maie Voice Choir last evening. Sir Henry Wood.—Excellent. The peifounance of "Antigone" is the finest I have ever hoard. The lines upon wirch the festival committee have com- menced their work augurs well for the future of music in Wales. Mr. R. C. Jenkins, Llaneily.—(A well known National Eisteddfod conductor and prize winner).—The performance was exceptionally fine. Mr. Martyh Thomas (the Chairman of the Executive Committee).—The executive committee, of which I am chairman, are exceedingly grateful to the inhabitants of Swansea for the ex- cellent response tiiey gave, and we were greatly encouraged, not only from that point of view, but also for the keen ap- preciation shown to every item in the programme. Surely it is something to have been the means of introducing a Beethoven's Symphony—notwithstand- ing that tt should have been written a century ago-to an audience. I was so pioased to think that its emotional appeal should be the means of persistent demands for encores and that in itself is a certain proof that Welsh audiences are capable of appreciatnig high- class mustc when it is presented to them. Sir Henry Wood had remarked that the choice of symphony was the most fitting number for introducing to a public which had hitherto been de- prived of hearing the world's greatest masterpieces. Sir Henry Wood expressed the desire that the committee should proceed on the lines they had already commenced, ior he assured them that Wales will hold its own against any nation in the world on account of the grea% warmth of tem- perament.
