SUCCESSFUL MUSICAL RECITAL TO BE REPEATED HERE
On the evening of Friday, May 26, at the Baptist church, in this city, music lovers of Paris and the county, will be given a genuine treat. The members of Prof. Albert H. Morehead’s class in Winchester, who recently gave a recital there, which was highly praised by good judges, will come to Paris on their own initiative, and at their own expense, and will givce the same recital here as they gave in Winchester.
The recital will be absolutely free, and there will be no collection or offering of any kind taken or expected. The coming of these artists is merely a social visit, and it is hoped that the people of Paris will show their appreciation of good music by filling the church to hear these vocalists.
The program will be identically the same as was given at the First Methodist church, in Winchester, and is made up of numbers from “The Elijah,” “The Holy City,” “The Messiah,” “Joshua,” “Theodora,” “Samson,” “Eli,” “The Creation,” and other noted musical works by famous composers. The principal numbers on the program will be sung by Mr. Morehead, Mr. Hugh McDonald, Miss Louise Haggard, Miss Katharine Hughes, Miss Pollie Baldwin, Mr. John C,. Hodgkin, Mrs. Woodson Moss, Mrs. J. Claude Scobee, Mrs. Dave T. Matlack, Mr. R. R. Murphy, Mrs. N. K. Foster and Mrs. W. B. Massie.
This will be one of the really enjoyable musical treats of the season, and those who miss it will regret it all their lives.

SECOND CHURCH MUSIC.
Mr. Morehead Will Manage Congregational and Chorus Singing.
During the past week the official of the Second Presbyterian church closed a contract with Mr. A. H. Morehead to take charge of all the music of the of the church and Sunday school. He will begin on this work tomorrow. It is understood that Mr. Morehead’s plan will be to encourage congregational singing and a quartette will lead in this. A chorus choir, to supplement the quartette, will be organized as soon as possible. A choir for the Sunday school singing will also be organized among the young people of the church. Within the next few weeks Mr. Morehead expects to have his plans pretty well developed.
Mr. Morehead has also taken the direction of the music at the Synagogue. Last night the quartette rendered three or four pretty and difficult anthems.

One of the most delightful entertainments of the commencement season in Paris, was the recital Friday evening by the pupils of the Morehead School of Music.
Mrs. Morehead is the director of the instrumental department, while Prof. Morehead teaches vocal music. The program was a charming combination of the two branches, and was enjoyed by a large and appreciative audience. Two medals offered by Mrs. Morehead for diligence and proficiency were awarded by Rev. Dr. E. M. Shire to Eva A. Chappel and George White Fithian. Every number on the program was well received, but perhaps the rendering of the little song, “Together,” by Mrs. Frank Fithian, and they have been set to music composed by Prof. Morehead, and no song of more beautiful harmony and pathos has been heard here for a long time.
