MUSEUMS & GALLERIES
1137 - DTD July 19:3/1 - It is rather strange that up to this time
our beautiful and rapidly rising city should have been left without a
resort of instruction and amusement, such as an ample and properly
constructed museum affords. There is not a city west of the Allegheny
mountains, even among those of larger dimensions than Cleveland, where
an enterprise of this kind, got up handsomely and on a large scale,
would be better sustained and pay larger dividends. Cleveland, the
Philadelphia of the northwest, enjoys a larger influx of strangers, who
come either for business or pleasure, than any city west of New York.

Now is the time to lay hold of this matter, while room is yet here to erect buildings for that special purpose.

MUSIC 1138 - DTD Jan. 5:2/3 - THE PIANO FORTE, a complete and thorough instruction book, is published by John P. Jewett of New York. It is for sale by Proctor, Worthington, and Company.

The exercises are condensed and simplified. The selection of music from the classic composers evinces great skill and taste, and many popular airs are scattered through the book, which cannot fail to charm all.

(3)

1139 - DTD Jan. 5:2/6 - The musical program arranged by the singing
school of Rudolphus Adam will be held tonight at 7:30 p.m. at the
school. Nine hundred and fifty tickets have been printed, of which
750 are free and are being disposed of by the scholars. The remaining
200 tickets are for sale at 12 1/2 cents each.

(4)

1140 - DTD Jan. 7:3/1 The Melodeon was crowded on the evening of Jan. 5, and right glad we were to see it. For Professor Adam is doing a good work and should be generously encouraged. There are few abler teachers in music than he; we have, certainly, no more estimable a citizen.

in. 7:3/3 - Oliver P. Hanks,

Oliver P. Hanks, opposite the post office, is constantly receiving new and fashionable music from various publishers throughout the country. Among a great variety of other pieces, the following will be found well worthy of the attention of lovers of good music: SCRAPS OF MELODY FOR YOUNG PIANISTS by William Dressler.

MUSIC (Cont'd)

society will take place this evening at seven o'clock in the basement

1143 - DTD Feb. 25; ed: 3/1 - Miss Elizabeth T. Greenfield, not in-
appropriately styled the "Black Swan," is to be in our city in a day or
two to sing. She was born in Virginia - a slave. Her master died, and
her mistress, being what slaveholders call mild, moved to Philadelphia
and set Miss Greenfield free, but feeling that her mistress in freeing
her had rendered simple justice and knowing that before many suns had
set her mistress, already aged, would lie down in the grave, she con-
cluded to remain with her and as far as she could smooth the rough path
age has to tread.

"Miss Greenfield by her own unaided energy has become mistress of the Guitar, Harp, and Piano. In appearance she is fair looking, though not a beauty, any more than her predecessor Miss Lind. Yet this is no disparagement, for the costliest jewels often have the roughest exterior.

Her voice ranges thirty-one notes, and though it has not been stated publicly, the "Swan" sings as high as the "Nightingale," though perhaps not as full (owing to want of training), and also much lower.

Miss Greenfield arrived last evening. She will occupy, at the Weddell, the Jenny Lind and Kossuth suite of rooms.

(13)

1144 - DTD Feb. 26; ed:3/1 - "The Oratorio on Feb. 24th went off with
a grand eclat, and we owe our thanks to the members of the Mendelssohn
Society for the high gratification which their performance afforded to
us....

"The Oratorio will, no doubt, be repeated--such music requires to be
frequently heard to be understood and appreciated. The members of the
Mendelssohn Society cannot do a nobler work for their beautiful Forest
City, than thus to cultivate a higher musical taste among its people,
by making them familiar with the works of the best masters in the
noblest, perhaps, of all the true arts.'

(6)

1145 - DTD Feb. 26:3/1 - The Buffalo quartette, Messrs. Taunt, Baker, Lombard, and Snyder, will appear at the Melodeon on Mar. 1.

(1)

1146 - DTD Feb. 27; ed:3/1 - Miss Elizabeth Greenfield, "The Black
Swan," had a crowded house last evening, and in our opinion, and in the
opinion of all we have heard express themselves, she fully sustained
her already high reputation. "Her voice is of great compass, and is
unusually sweet and charming....

"Mr. Stacey deserves great praise for having furnished, at such a cost to himself, such a rich treat as this concert has been."
