The Chamber Concert given by :he Detroit Philharmonic Club, under the auspices of the University School of Music, last evening, was fairly well attended. The great number of members of the faculty present was remarkable. The program was well selected, being arranged in chronological order of quartette music. One of the sweetest melodies of the program, Poco Adagio Cantabile, was found in the first number. In number three that part of the Larghetto where the viol lead was especially cheering, while the Minuetto was rendered witta such vivacity and brilliancy as to awaken, corresponding sentiments among the auditors. The last movement in number five was finely executed, carrying the mood of the audience f rom sadder to more brilliant phases of feeling and was well chosen as a climax to the gradual crescendo, with regard to which, the entire program had been arranged. The applause which greeted Mr. Mills on his appearance proved him to be a favorite in our musical circles. He sang a "Recitative and Aria f rom the 'Messiah' " with much force and expression and his rendition of "Verdant Meadows" completely captured the audience. The faculty of the School of Music has done much towards bringing good classical music before the people of Ann Arbor, and are to be especially commended for this last treat.
