THIS is the strongest quartette of its kind that will be in the Lyceum next season.
The Collegians have been out three seasons. Not only was their success unusual from the first, but they have been received with greater and greater enthusiasm each year. As a singing bunch, their voices blend as harmoniously and as perfectly as could be imagined. Their instrumentation in the brass quartette is everything that can be desired.
Their program is full of lively action with enough of the old favorites and enough of the sober parts to give a fine variety.
Each is an individual soloist. Some solo numbers may be sung but this will not be, by any means, a feature of their work. The feature is in their quartette numbers.
The solo feature is mentioned only for this reason. It is not common to see four individually strong soloists comprising a male quartette. The solo voice so often loses its identity in the blending of the four voices, and fails when it attempts to stand up alone.
It is a quartette that has pushed itself to the front rapidly and deserves place on the very front row of Redpath attractions. We will guarantee their making good on the very largest courses of the country and before the most critical audiences. We have seen them do it so often.
Their entire program for the coming season will be new throughout, repeating, of course, an occasional number where special request is made.
