TENOR RECITAL PROVES HIGHLY INTERESTED [sic]

Choir Leader, Mr. Albert H. Morehead, Soon to Move To Paris

The tenor recital given at Broadway Christian Church last night to the members of the choir proved to be unusually interesting. The recital was given by Mr. Albert H. Morehead, leader of the choir, who will leave Lexington for Paris in a short time. Mr. Morehead has been here only a short time and is connected with one of the piano firms of this city.

Some time ago he was called by the Christian Church at Paris to lead their choir and as he expected to move to Paris in a short time he accepted. Mr. Morehead was very popular and Broadway, it is said, will lose one of the best tenors ever had in the choir there when he leaves for Paris.

He was accompanied last night on the piano by Miss Sarah Sayre and the combination of the two artists was excellent.

The following interesting program was rendered:
