Annual Spring Concert.
There was a far smaller audience at the concert of the musical clubs last night than the merit of the performance deserved. Sanders Theatre was scarcely half filled; but the applause was very generous. It was fairly earned throughout. The playing of the Pierian, with which the concert opened, was a very pleasing testimony to the excellence of Mr. Safford's training; and in all their numbers, including an encore, the orchestra did itself great credit. The singing of the Glee Club, with the notable exception of the second song, "The Long Day Closes," was not fully as good as that of former years. The solos, however, were heartily encored. As usual, both the Mandolin and the Banjo Clubs scored successes by their lively rendering of catching tunes.
