Arion Male Quartette Elwin W. Owens. 1st Tenor Laban Beal Jr. 2nd Tenor Fred H. Goss Baritone Edwin T. Clark Bass Especially equipped to fulfil engagements at short notice. The Redpath Bureau Boston Chicago Philadelphia INTRODUCTION THE ARION QUARTETTE enters upon its third season grateful to the public, from whom it has received most gratifying encouragement and praise, and with renewed ambition to hold the position it has attained in musical circles. It has been the constant object of this Quartette to select the best music and to render it well; if it has been successful, it has been amply repaid for the work. The members of the Quartette have had long experience in church and concert work, and with well-balanced voices and harmonious blending attain results which are most satisfactory. PERSONAL LETTERS Beacon Club, Waban, Mass. April 28, \ 903. The Arion Quartette sang before the Beacon Club Thursday evening, April \ 6, 1903, to the entire satisfaction of the members of the club. The Quartette is well balanced, has a carefully selected repertoire, and gives a good entertainment. L. B. FOLSOM, President* The Boston Press Club. Feb. 20, 1903. To the Manager of the Arion Quartette of Melrose : The Boston Press Club extends sincere and hearty thanks to your organization for its valuable assistance in the program at the recent " house-warming " of this club. Most certainly the singing of your Quartette was par excellence, and the Press Club takes pleasure in predicting and wishing for your Quartette continued prosperity. JOHN BUCHANAN, Secretary. Maiden Auditorium. Maiden, Mass., April J, 1903. E. W. Owen, Mgr. of the Arion Quartette, Melrose, Mass. Dear Sir : — It gives me much pleasure to write and tell you how much the audience and your humble servant enjoyed the numbers given by the Quartette in the Auditorium at our last entertainment. The numbers given were by far the best on the evening's program. Sincerely yours, G. D. CAMPBELL, Manager* Swett @ Lovejoy, 525 Tremont Building, Boston. March 25, 1903. E. W. Owen, Esq., Melrose, Mass. I desire to express my personal appreciation of the work which the Arion Male Quartette did at the Business Men's Banquet of our Young Men's Christian Association. At various times we have had the best male quartettes in Boston and vicinity before our Association, but never one which gave better satisfaction than the Arion. Very truly yours, BERTRAM E. LOVEJOY. Boston, April 15, 1903. My Dear Mr. Owen : It is a pleasure for me to endorse the singing of your Quartette. I have watched the growth with interest, and can say that in the special line of work that you have selected the excellence attained is of a high order. The coon songs and comic songs you did at the club supper were perfect in the ensemble; the voices blended beautifully. Sincerely, E. CUTTER, Jr. Franklin P. Shumway, 373 Washington St., Boston. April 29, 1903. I have utilized the Arion Quartette for several occasions of differing character, and have always found them to be acceptable from every stand point. It, therefore, gives me pleasure to commend them to any one desiring the services of a male quartette, as I feel assured that they can be depended on to always furnish high-class music of suitable character. FRANKLIN P. SHUMWAY, Pres* Amphion Club* Melrose, Mass. PRESS NOTICES Bank Officers* Night, Symphony Hall. "And the audience thoroughly appreciated the songs by the Arion Quartette, Messrs. Owen, Beal, Goss, and Clark/' — Boston Herald. "The Arion Quartette participated in the recital given last week at the Maiden Auditorium, and were warmly applauded and commended for their fine execution and well-balanced voices." Melrose Free Press* " And the Arion Quartette whose singing proved most delightful."— "Boston Herald. "The Arion Quartette is surely destined to become popular; their voices were excellent and balanced with an evenness seldom heard." — Maiden Mirror. " The Arions also proved once more what a valuable accession they are to the musical circles of the city." — Melrose Free Press. " One of the delightful numbers was ' Finland Love Song ' by Engelsberg, in which the club was assisted by the Arion Quartette, Messrs. Owen, Beal, Goss, and Clark." — Boston Herald. " The Arion Quartette sang ' March of the Guards' and as an encore gave ' The Psalm of Life' a piece written especially for this Quartette. Encores were demanded on all other selections, and the fact that the last number on the program received a double encore shows the class of work they are doing." — Melrose Journal* " The Arion Quartette was one of the pleasing numbers, and, as was voiced by the audience in applause, 'What is better than a good male quartette ?'" Maiden Mirror.
