NORWICH MUSICAL FESTIVAL

NORWICH, OCT. 30.

The morning and afternoon of to-day have again been devoted to rehearsal, to which, by the way, visitors are admitted for the consideration of half a guinea. This evening, the first miscellaneous concert will be given, and Mr. Arthur S. Sullivan’s new overture, In Memoriam, which gave great satisfaction at rehearsal, be submitted to the verdict of a much more numerous if not more competent tribunal.

NORWICH MUSICAL FESTIVAL

NORWICH, OCT. 31.

At the evening concert last night (which was honoured by the presence of the Duke of Edinburgh), Mr. Arthur Sullivan’s new overture obtained a marked and well-merited success. It was very finely played by the orchestra, and the young composer, who conducted the performance, was loudly called forward at the end.
