"Dear Mr. Tinsley:
"I take great pleasure in commending your very useful and succintly 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 exercises, and should be in the hands of all vocal students."
From "Music News," Chicago, Ill.: "Accordingly his '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."

HELPED HIM GREATLY
"Since I practised your exercises of 'Tone-Placing and Voice-Development' my voice is more resonant than it has been for years. It seems to me that I am getting a new voice." Prof. John T. Layton, Director Coleridge-Taylor Musical Society, 1722 10th St., N.W., Washington, D. C.

LAST month marked the first appearance of the Vocal Quartet at the Music School Settlement for Colored People in the City of New York, and also the String Quartet. Among the speakers has been the Hon. Charles W. Anderson and the musical performers have included Mr. and Mrs. David Mannes, David Bisham and Walter Damrosch.

The Philippines Constabulary Band has been engaged for the entire term of the San Francisco Exposition.

The Washington Concert Orchestra of the District of Columbia is now in its second season under the leadership of Mr. Harry A. Williams. The concert of the orchestra at the Howard Theatre last month was unusually successful and evinced a high degree of orchestral development. The assisting soloists were Mrs. Daisy Tapley, contralto of New York, Miss Celestine Lott, pianist and Mrs. Marjorie Groves Robinson, accompanist. An excellent program was given including numbers from Offenbach, Grieg, Rossini, Schubert, Schumann, Bizet, Burleigh, Strauss, Rosamond Johnson and Will H. Dixon. Miss Lott played the Schumann concerto in A minor for the closing number. 

Mr. Charles Burroughs of New York, the well known reader, was heard in Washington, D. C., in a program of classical modern writers.

In a recital at Aeolian Hall, New York City, by Christine Miller and George Hamlin, two songs by Burleigh were sung. One, "The Glory of the Day Was in Her Face," was set to words by James W. Johnson.

In the auditorium of John Wanamaker's store, New York City, a Lincoln's birthday concert was given by the Jubilee Glee Club composed of colored employees. Mr. Harry Burleigh, Mr. Gordon Kahn and Mr. Alexander Russell assisted. Selections from Coleridge-Taylor, Rosamond Johnson and Will Marion Cook were rendered.

Will Marion Cook's "Swing Along" was sung by the University Glee Club at the Princeton Club House, New York City.

A mixed chorus of 50 voices at the Upper Montclair Presbyterian Church sang Burleigh's "Negro Spirituals."

The works of the Samuel Coleridge-Taylor appeared in the program of Miss Jean Vincent Cooper at the West Side Y. M. C. A., New York City. Miss Cooper is a pupil of Sergei Klibanski. The same composer appeared on the program of Mr. Carl Rupprecht, baritone, at the Claude Warford Studios, in the Metropolitan Opera House.

On the afternoon of February 20th, Mrs. Maud Cuney Hare, pianist, assisted by Mr. William H. Richardson, baritone, gave a lecture-recital before the Hascall Music Club.
