of a century" he ,has become the idol

Wednesday, October 21
Renowned Irish Singer of Songs

Rosa Ponselle "won her spurs"
during the operatic season of 1918-
1919, when almost over night she
stepped to the rostrum of the Met-
ropolitan Opera House and "took
the audience by storm." Opera or
recital have no terrors for her. Her
brilliant artistry, intelligence, and
general understanding of the "eter-
nal fitness of things" in the artistic
woildhas given her an assurance and
poise which always make her ap-
pearances tremendously successful

Ossip Gabrilowitsch, Conductor

Percy Grainger, pianohvirtuoso,
conductor, and composer has had a
happily unique career which has
brought to him distinguished success
in this triune field. When a lad of
twelve years of age he made his
debut in the spacious Exhibition
Building, in his native Melbourne,
before a huge and enthusiastic-audi-
ence. Since that time he3 has always
been received with the same fervor
and enthusiasm, and a most delight-
ful artistic glamour has enshrouded
all of his appearances. Sold-out
houses with many turned away are
general occurance even when he
plays in the largest auditorium.

RUSSIAN CHORUS
Serge Jaroff, Conductor
The Don Cossack Russian Male
Chorus made such a profound im-
pression last seasonathat to satisfy
persistent demaids of music lovers
they --haveAbeen re-engaged for this
season. 'The organization known as
"The Singing Horsemen of the
Steppes" is made up entirely of ex-
patriated members of the former
Russian Imperial Army. They are
virtually "men without a coantry"
and travel on "Nansen" passports.
Their singing, whether pit be the rev-
erent chorus of Tschaikowsky, the
dulcet serenade of Vannikov, the bold
and stirring tale of the Twelve; Rob-
bers, or the wonderful ringing
choruses of the Don Cossacks on the
March, always move their audiences
by that thrilling timbre of tone uni-
que-with Russian male voices.
