Not a large but an appreciative audience assembled Wednesday eve to listen to the benefit concert given by the Glee and Banjo clubs. Each performer so well sustained his part, as to produce a harmonious and eminently satisfactory whole. Each selection was encored, and some of them twice. The voices of the Glee club blend perfectly, and those gentlemen have attained the art of singing every word distinctly. The first and last numbers on the program, "Yellow and Blue" and "Ann Arbor," are always welcome selections to the enthusiastic U. of M. students. The choruses were good without an exception. " Phantom Band" and "A VVarrior Bold" were perhaps received with more favor than the others. " Seranade," by Mr. George, and "A Life Lesson," by Mr. Richardson, were both exceedingly pretty selections, and were excellently interpreted by those gentlemen. "Old Thompson's Mule" was exceptionally funny, and was cleverly sung by Mr. Thompson. Perhaps the most amusing number of the evening was the familiar "Romeo and Juliet," Messrs. Pratt and Thompson. The hat drill was, as it always is, amusing and interesting. In response to the encoré to this number, fourteen different styles of hats were worn, and if the co-eds attended the concert with an idea of observing the fashions, they certainly found something-new. From the opening measures of the Arion waltzes to the closing strains of the final number, the Banjo Club showed itself to be a company of well-trained musical artists. Each selection was so pleasing that discrimination is difficult. The spirit of "Fun in de Cotton Fields," was so realistically interpreted that it would not have been surprising to hear the darkies' voices joining. "A Little of Everything" included the most popular measures of a number of our popular songs, cleverly arranged by Mr. Starrett. "Sea Isle March" was one of the most spirited numbers of the evening.
