Under the direction of Prof. Stanley a most enjoyable concert was given at the Art toan last evening. The audience more than filled the hall, monnting into the unfinished balcony and begrudging the small space taken up by the scaffolding around the windows. The program opened with "The Mariners," effectively rendered by Miss Nellie Goodwin with Messrs. E. B. Spaulding and M. H. Pease. The Amphion Club then sang "Springtime" and "Villager's Wedding." The latter was participated in by Miss Goodwin, who has a sweet sympathetic voice, not lacking in power, and used with such charming simplicity as completely won the audience. Mrs. N. S. Hoff sang the universally popular Schubert's "Serenade." She was followed by the Westminster Quartette, composed of the four persons already named. Their selection, the "Lullaby of Life," was especially applauded. The fifth number was "The Springtime," sung by Miss Goodwin, who was obliged to respond to an encoré. It is a high compliment to say that the Amphion Club now appeared to better advantage in "Ave Maria" than in their first selection. Mr. Spaulding (our Mr. Spaulding) followed with the "Summer Night;" much (though hardlv enousrh") has already been said of this gentleman's fine voice. The eighth number consisted of "Nun ist der Tag Geschieden," - by the Amphions, also Barcarolle, a choice gera. The tenor solos, "All Souls' Day" and "Marie," were given by Mr. Pease in a marnier especially pleasing. Then followed the choicest number of the program, "Go Pretty Rose," by Miss Goodwin and Mr. Spaulding; of courseit was encored. The last selection, "Good Night, Beloved," was rendered by the Quartette.
