Williams John Lotito Leo Zelenka-Lerando Frank Sabbatino Also many Vaudeville Soloists MADE BY The Rudolph Wurlitzer Co. The World's Largest General Music House The Wurlitzer Harp was designed and is being made under the personal direction of the greatest harp builder of all time—the man whose work is known by all prominent harpists of this country and Europe and who is responsible for practically all improvements in the harp during the past twenty years, and whose influence over the harp industry may fairly be likened to that of Stradivarius in the field of the violin. Wherever there was a chance to improve on his earlier work this has been done. The Wurlitzer Harp is recognized on all sides as his best work because it is his latest, achieved with unlimited facilities and under ideal working conditions. The tone of the Wurlitzer Harp is a positive revelation. It is clear and singing and almost unbelievably sweet. Harpists and musical critics, one and all, have gone into ecstacies over this glorious and heretofore unattainable tone quality.

Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy. Born Feb. 3, 1809, at Hamburg. Died Nov. 4, 1847, at Leipsic. This number is a transcription (for wood wind and harp) of the thirtieth of Mendelssohn's Songs Without Words, the last one in book V. (Opus 62), which appeared in print in April, 1844. The Spring Song itself was written in 1842. 8. American Fantasie Victor Herbert The Wurlitzer Harp Used Exclusively. C. G. Conn Band Instruments. EVENING PROGRAM. 1. Overture, Jubel Weber Overture, Opus 59 Jubilee. Carl Maria von Weber. Born Dec. 18, 1786, at Eutin, Oldenburg. Died June 5, 1826, at London. The Jubilee overture was composed in 1818,—the autograph score bears the date of September 11th,—and was first performed at the festival held at Dresden, on the 20th of the same month, in honor of the fiftieth anniversary of the accession of King Frederick Augustus I to the throne of Saxony. Weber had composed a jubilee cantata for this event which is said to have fallen short of the requirements of the occasion; in any case, it was relegated to the background, and the present overture, an entirely distinct composition, was performed in its place. The title itself is a sufficient indication of the nature of this work, which is brought to an enthusiastic conclusion by the introduction of the national anthem. 2.

Fantasia on National Airs Kryl Cornet Solo by BOHUMIR KRYL. 7. Les Preludes (Symphonic Poem) Liszt Symphonic Poem, Les Preludes. Franz Liszt. Born Oct. 22, 1811, at Raiding, Hungary. Died July 31, 1886, at Bayreuth. Liszt was moved to the composition of Les Preludes by the following passage from Lamartine's Meditations Poétiques: What is Life but a series of preludes to that unknown song whose initial solemn note is tolled by Death? The enchanted dawn of every life is love; but where is the destiny on whose first delicious joys some storm does not break?—a storm whose deadly blast disperses youth's illusions, whose fatal bolt consumes its altar. And what soul thus cruelly bruised, when the tempest rolls away, seeks not to rest its memories in the pleasant calm of rural life? Yet man allows himself not long to taste the kindly quiet which first attracted him to Nature's lap; but when the trumpet gives the signal he hastens to danger's post, whatever be the fight which draws him to the lists, that in strife he may once more regain full knowledge of himself and all his strength. 8. The Death of Custer, or The Battle of Little Big Horn Lee Johnston Synopsis: (a) Sioux Indians' war dance, night before the battle. (b) Bugle call in Custer's camp before forming the line of March. (c) Custer's cavalry on March to Sioux camp, the sound of horses' hoofs in the distance. (d) Approach of cavalry with band playing National Airs, the Indians responding with their customary war music. (e) Battle of Little Big Horn, June 25, 1876, in which our great general lost his life. (f) Indians rejoicing over the victory with scalp dance. (g) Arrival of reinforcements, General Bentine and cavalry. (h) Custer's burial, volley of shots, muffled drums and bugle sounding the last call over our great General's grave. Finale,`Nearer My God to Thee. The Wurlitzer Harp Used Exclusively. C. G. Conn Band Instruments.
