The last concert of the Chora Union Series was given in University Hall, Saturday evening. The Union sang Gounod's Redemption andwere assisted by the following soloists: Soprano, Mrs. Jennie Patrick Walker of Boston; mezzo-soprano, Mis? Alice May Harrah of Detroit; contralto, Miss Jennie L. Stoddard; tenor, Jules Jordán of Providence, R. I.; bass, Arthur Beresford of Chicago. The chorus consisted of 233 voices, and the orchestra of 45 pieces. The work of the chorus was very much finer thaa at any time this year, the chorus, "Unfold, ye portals everlasting," being exceptionally well rendered. The singing of the soloists was all that could be desired. Mrs. Jennie Patrick Walker received an undeniable encoré for her solo, "From Thy Love as a Father." Mr. Beresford's renditions of the bass parts were probably more thoroughly enjoyed than any of the solos. During the intermission between Parts I and II, de Pont stepped to the front of the platform and in a neat anc witty speech presented Prof. Stanley with a photograph of a handsome music stand, as a testimonial of the regard in which he is held by th members of the Choral Union. The stand, unfortunately, was not made in time to send to Ann Arbor before the concert, henee the photograph. Prof. Stanley acknowleged the gift in a brief sneech to the chorus.
