Miss Collins sang a very choice program, of which the two operatic numbers were the distinct featured. These were the exacting florid aria, "Ah, fors e lui'' from "La Traviata," and the mad scene from "Hamlef." So far as memory recalls, the latter has never been sung here, certainly not by a local singer. The two served admirably to bring out the bell-like beauty of Miss Collins' pure soprano, which has a really remarkable range. In both the arias she took high D with e*se and clarity. In oratorio singing Miss Collins has al?o shown her" capacity and her "Let the Bright Seraphim]' from Handel's "Samson" was an Excellent example. Other numbers were Bischoff's "Love Sings the Lark," Salter's "Come to the Garden, Love," Brooks' "The Vision," Bacholet's "Dearest Night," Gounod's "The Spring," Tipton[s "Tho' You Forget," Aylward's "One Summer Morning," Chadwin's "Thou Ait So Like a Flower" and Lehma's "Come Dance the Bomaika." Kansas City Post—Concert—Pearl Collins-Mclntyfe. soprano, certainly gave great pleasure to those who assembled to hear her at the New Casino last night. Her program was made up of a number of arias from standard opera and groups of short songs culled from the compositions of the best modern composer's. Her entire program showed careful study and was given an intelligent interpretation. This added to a very beau¬tiful voice, a voice capable of producing the beauties of the most difficult creations, prepared an evening of pleasure to those whose good fortune it was to be present at her conceit. S. ARTHUR McINTYRE Formerly of New York City. Brooklyn Eagle—Song Recital—Mr. Mclntyre sang his number's with pure tenor quality and understanding. He received several encores. Philadelphia North American—Song Recital—Mr. Mc¬lntyre sang two of Nevin's songs and received warranted applause. Pueblo Chieftain—Concert—Mr. Mclntyre sang in a manner that calls for' great praise. Hutchinson News—May Festival—Mr. Mclntyre is a tenor who makes good. He has a pleasing voice and easy manner on the platform. MISS MYNN COGSWELL Hutchinson News, Hutchinson, Kan., 1910.—Miss Cogswell has not only technical skill and command of her instrument, but has an artist's conception of the beauty of the composition and was able to make her audience share her sympathetic appreciation of its delicate harmonies. Hiawatha, Kan.—Miss Cogswell's selections on the violin have never been equaled on our platform, and when she gave a severely classical number in the "Scene de Beriot" the audience applauded enthusi¬astically, to which she replied in a beautiful selection, "Humoresko." Supt. L,. A. Guthridge, Galena, Kan., Feb. 10, 1910. —Miss Cogswell, the violinist, deserves much praise. Her selections were those that contain sweet music rather than those that give the performer an oppor¬tunity to show technical skill. Mt. Vernon (111.) Daily News, Jan. 14, 1910.—Many present considered the violin work of Miss Cogswell the finest ever heard in this city. MISS BESSIE LEIGH Miss Bessie Leigh—as reader and pianist—brings to the company a very high order of talent in two widely different roles. As pianist and accompanist she shows the self-effacing labor of the artist whose work underlies the success of all the other parts, but is most success¬ful when it is least in evidence. But it is in her work as a reader that Miss Leigh's chief claim to distinction lies. Trained in the best schools of Boston, she began teaching expression and doing platform work at the age of eighteen. And she has recently given up a teaching position in one of the state institutions of the Middle West in order to give her full time to the platform. Aside from her work in the Harmony Company, Miss Leigh is also available for full program as reader and monologue artist.
