Figure THE MAURER SISTERS ORCHESTRA The Maurer Sisters Orchestra Figure The Maurer Sisters Orchestra is about to enter its eighth year on the lyceum and chautauqua platform. This organization had five years' experience before coming to the Redpath Bureau, beginning to play in public very young in years and making good from the very start. In fact, the Redpath Bureau has never had a company of young women of whom it has felt prouder and received better reports than the Maurer Sisters. During the last two years they have been known as the Orchestral Entertainers. Not One Adverse Report Received Figure In all the time that the Maurer Sisters have been out under Redpath management, the bureau has no record of having received a single letter of criticism of this company. This is saying a good deal, for some of the best of companies sometimes have an off date. On the other hand there are few companies from which the bureau has received more excellent reports from committees than this one. 14—1604 Versatility Without Mediocrity Figure For versatility on musical instruments the parallel of the Maurer Sisters is seldom found. In this respect they fill an important place in the lyceum for there is much demand for just such a combination. The only reason that there are comparatively few such companies is because versatility in music is so apt to be accompanied by mediocrity. Especially is there a demand for this kind of an organization where large door sales are a consideration to the committee. Pictures of numerous instruments and promises of a widely varied program attract young and old from far and near.

Figure WHAT COMMITTEEMEN ARE SAYING THE MAURER SISTERS ORCHESTRA The following comments of committeemen are but a very few of the many received at this office. Mr. Joseph Mandel, writing from Logansport, Ind., on Jan. 6, 1912, says: The four Maurer Sisters who appeared here Jan. 1 are excellent in every part of their work. They left here with such good feeling amongst our members that I have been asked to have them here again in the near future. A. G. Welshimer, principal of the schools at Mechanicsburg, O., Dec. 19, 1911: Lecture course stock in Mechanicsburg took a big jump last Tuesday night and it is still going up, for people are still talking about what a splendid entertainment the Orchestral Entertainers gave us. W. D. Keis, Streator, Ill., writing under date of Oct. 27, 1911: I can say of the Orchestral Entertainers that I have heard many high class musical combinations, but none better than the Maurer Sisters. Our people were very much pleased with their work. F. R. Martin, Hammond, Ind., Nov. 13, 1911: The Orchestral Entertainers appeared here Tuesday and made a decided hit. An audience of 800 encored every number and did not want to let them quit. H. M. Whitcomb, Albany, Wis., Nov. 4, 1911: The Maurer Sisters gave us the finest musical entertainment we have ever had occasion to enjoy in Albany and we have witnessed many such in the past. James Croidone, Janesville, Wis., Nov. 2, 1911: The beautiful selections which are so skillfully played by the Misses Maurer are both attractive and pleasing even to the most critical ear.
