Het ween 400 and 500 people gathered at Uethlehem church last Friday evening, the occasion being one of Miss Émma Fischer's popular pupil's recitals. An enjoyable program of twentyeight numbers was given, the performers ranging from tots of six years to demure young ladies in handsome gowns and mysterious coiffures. At the conclusión of the program Miss Fiseher rendered, by request. Preyer's brilliant "Festival Polonaise" in her usual charming manner and won an enthusiastic encoré. Miss Fischer was assisted by Miss Babette Fischer soprano, who for some time has been a pupil of Mrs. Geo. F. Key. A sid f rom a slight nervousness at the opening of her flrst number. Kubenstein's sweet "Du bist wie eine Blume," she exhibited a marked degree of skill. Her second number, sung With a violin obligato by Cari Arenneman, afforded an opportunity to show herself at her ebt, and was received with a storm o hearty applause. She was sorely hand capped bv the poor accoustic arrange ment of the hall. Miss Fischer's voice is a clear soprano of remarkable sweetness and purity, but lacks in strength. It gives promise, however, that, with careful training and more mature age, it will develop into oL extraordinary quality and power. The surprise of the evening was the rendition of the beautiful "Forget-menot" nocturne by little Miss Natalie Fischer. One seldom finds, in one so young, such delicacy of touch and f ullness of expression, and so thorough a conception of the idea contained in the written music. The little lady brought out all the finer passages of Sartorio's different composition with a strength and technique that would have done credit to many an older performer and a brilliant future as a musician can safely be predicted f or ker. She shows clearly the results of the careful training given her by her accomplished sister. The young people who took part in the recital all did remarkably well, but extended mention cannot be made of their several performances. A goodly sum was netted for the church and Miss Fischer is correspondingly happy.
