Of Interest to Vocalists
Tone-Placing and Voice Development, With Supplement Co-ordinating with Original Chapters

Highly recommended and endorsed by well known Choral and Musical Societies, Directors, Vocal Teachers and Musical Publications, as evidenced by the following extracts selected at random from those who know:

Pedro T. Tinsley of Chicago is the first of the vocal teachers to realize the possibilities of Tone-Placing and Vowel Values (Study) as applied to music, and will soon be reaping his reward in the knowledge that he is helping thousands to a thorough musical education where he previously helped but hundreds.

"Dear Mr. Tinsley:
"I take great pleasure in commending your very useful and succinctly written book on 'Tone-Placing and Voice-Development.' Your own appreciation of the psychology of singing and the fundamental principles of the art you have cleverly reduced to a simple system.  Cordially yours,
"Father William J. Finn, C. S. P., Director Paulist Choristers of Chicago."

From "Musical Courier," N.Y.: "A very practical little book is 'Tone-Placing and Voice-Development,'by Pedro T. Tinsley.  It contains some very excellent material and vocal excerses, and should be in the hands of all vocal students."
From "Music News," Chicago, Ill.: "Accordingly this 'Practical Method of Singing' is a most concise and practical little manual, containing many valuable vocal exercises.  It cannot fail to be helpful to all ambitious vocal students."

Along The Color Line 

Music And Art

The symphony "Antar," by the Russian composer Rimsky-Korsakoff, the music of which is largely based on Oriental folk themes, was played on November 12th by the Boston Symphony Orchestra, at Boston, Massachusetts. The composer took the subject from the Arab story. "Antar" was a mulatto, the son of an African slave and a chieftain. Acknowledged and freed by his father, he became famous as a poet and a valiant warrior.

Samuel Coleridge- Taylor's "Deep River" and "From the Green Heart of the Water" were among the numbers given at a concert of sea pictures, at the Chicago Musical College late in October.

"Her Eyes Twin Pools," by Harry T. Burleigh, the words by James Johnson, was one of the novelties offered by Arthur Herschmann in his song recital on November 6th at Aeolian Hall, New York.

At a joint recital with Bauer, the eminent pianist, Paul Althouse sang Burleigh songs in an American group of representative compositions before the Woman's Club in Evanston, Illanois, on October 26th.

The Appomattox Club of Chicago lately gave a Coleridge- Taylor concert in Remembrance of the composer's birthday. An address was delivered by Dr. Charles E. Bentley. The musical program was arranged by Mr. Pedro Tinsley. The artists were Mrs. Willa M. Sloan, soprano; Mr. W. H. Hackley, Dr. W. Carver Williams, Mr. Harrison Emanuel, violinist, and Mr. T. Theodore Taylor, pianist. 

Mr. Clarence Cameron White closed his fall concert tour with a very successful recital given by the Euterpians at the Howard Theatre on November 6th, at Washington, D. C.

Mr. James Johnson's poem "The White Witch" is included in William Stanley Braithwaite's "Anthology of Magazine Verse for 1915," as one of the best poems of the year. It originally appeared in The Crisis for March, 1915. The Boston Transcript of November 30th says of Mr. Braithwaite: "He has helped poetry to readers as well as to poets. One is guilty of no extravagance in saying that the poets we have- and they may take their place with their peers in any country- and the gathering deference we pay them, are created largely out of stubborn, self-effacing enthusiasm of this one man. In a sense their distinction is his own. In a sense he has himself written their poetry. Very much by his toil they may write, and be read. Not one of them will ever write a finer poem than Braithwaite himself has lived already."

The African exhibit at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City has grown so large that it has been placed in a hall to itself. The recent Lang-Chapin expedition brought valuable additions from the Congo. The Africans excel in iron and wood work, in weaving artistic pile cloth and in making various types of musical instruments. Specimens of all these are in this collection.
