The Albert Select Choir: Review of the First Concert of the Season in the Trades’ Hall, on the 2nd of November, 1882, Featuring a Young Philip E. Halstead

From page six of The Glasgow Herald, on Friday the third of November, 1882:


“THE ALBERT SELECT CHOIR.- Last night the Albert Select Choir gave their first concert this season before a crowded audience in the Trades [sic] Hall. The programme, which was rather a long one, consisted of a selection of solos and concerted pieces. A very good account was given of nearly every item, the choruses being rendered with an amount of precision which indicated very careful training. Master Philip E. Halstead, a juvenile performer, imparted a pleasing variety to the concert by his skilful playing on the pianoforte. The audience, which was thoroughly appreciative, protracted the entertainment by redemanding a number of the pieces.”
