The ORPHEANS Figure Figure THE MANAGEMENT takes pleasure in presenting this organization for its ninth season. They have had phenomenal success in their past seasons and are more generously equipped than ever to please the public the coming season. They are versatile, artistic, capable of giving a widely diversified program, consisting of vocal quartets, horn quartets, solos, illustrated songs and impersonations. They have an extensive repertoire of vocal music and in the classic, humorous and comic selections are equally at home, their voices blending in perfect harmony, giving the effect of a deep-toned organ. An unbroken program of vocal music and readings is by some considered monotonous and hence the Orpheans are introducing their instrumental feature. With greatest confidence the Management presents the Brass Quartet, consisting of a cornet, mellophone, baritone and trombone. This is a rare and delightful combination, insuring a well-balanced quartet, the richness of tone being unexcelled, and a variety of music offered which will please the most exacting. In the rendition of their songs in the pathetic they excel, as their sympathetic tone gains the heart of the audience, while their comic songs are true to life and sung with vim. They are to be especially commended for their perfect articulation, the story of each song being clearly brought out. Press and personal endorsements alike are loud in their praise for the work done by this high-class organization.

There are only four first-class male quartets in the Lyceum world to-day, and the Orpheans is one of them, and that should be praise enough for any musical combination.— Elias Day, Oak Park, Chicago. The Orphean Musical Club, the third number in the lecture course, gave an entertainment Wednesday night to a good audience. Their quartet work was the best we ever had here, and after each number they were repeatedly called back. As one patron expressed it, each number was better than the preceding one.— Peoria (Ill.) Evening Star. The musical side of the entertainment was furnished by the quartet of splendid young men, the instruments being two cornets, a mellophone and a baritone trombone. Each and every number on the program was heartily encored. The cartoon work of Mr. Henry illustrating Suwanee River and The Old Canoe as the music was rendered greatly pleased the audience.— Oklahoma City 'Daily Oklahoman. The Orphean Musical Club gave a splendid program which delighted a thousand people for an hour and a half.

LAYE First Tenor and Baritone PRESS AND PERSONAL COMMENTS The Orphean Musical Club has finished a week's engagement at the Colorado Chautauqua, Boulder, Aug. 10, 1908. During this week they appeared upon the platform twice a day. No more popular musical club has appeared here in the last two years. Every member of the club is a gentleman, and a master of his art. The repertoire of the club was full, varied and pleasing. Their funny songs are of the best quality, and they render sacred music so that it appeals to a popular audience. This club came to us with the highest recommendations, and their week's work sustained the recommendations in every particular.—R. W. Gammon, Platform Manager. The Orphean Musical Club pleased every one. The feature of the entertainment was the great variety of numbers, and all excellently rendered. We hope to have the Orpheans again.—C. M. Speese, Acting General Secretary Roanoke, Va., Y. M. C. A. Many have pronounced the Orphean Musical Club the best that they have ever heard in the city.
