Mr Chas. W. Landon, a former musical director of Claverack College, and until recently musical director of the Randolph Macon College, Lynchburg, has opened a school of music in Dallas, Texas.

Mr Henry Lahn, who for the past eight years has filled the position of secretary at the New England Conservatory, has severed his connection with that institution and established the Boston Musical Bureau, which has made a remarkably auspicious opening. Mr. Lahn is enabled, by this change, to give more time to literary work, and already has two books in the hands of his publishers.

The Crescent Hall School, of Jersey City, N. J., of which Mrs. M. Finn is principal, has just entered upon its twenty-fourth year. Its past record has been a successful one, and it, no doubt, will continue to merit the increased patronage which it deserves.

The piano pupils of Harry N. Wiley, Sunderland, Mass., gave a pleasant recital at his home recently. Archie P. Graves, baritone, assisted.

We acknowledge the receipt of prospectus of the Misses Crawford’s School for Boys and Girls. The musical department is under the able direction of Miss R. Crawford. A pianoforte Kindergarten class is one of the features from which the most satisfactory results have been attained.

In the last issue of The Etude we made mention of the death of Fidelis Zitterbart, which, however, we are glad to be able to correct as Mr. Zitterbart is still living and quite active. The error was due, no doubt, to the fact that a Mr. Louis Zitterbart, musician, and also of Pittsburg, died in that city recently.

Y., on the, 26th of October in a concert: Madame Elenore Meredith, soprano; Miss Kate Sherbourne, contralto; Miss Clara B. Clark, reader; Mr. Gustave C. Miller, tenor; Mr. A. L. McAdam, baritone; and Mr. Jaroslaw de Zielinski, pianist and director. The affair was patronized by the elite of the town, and the crowded house showed its appreciation of the work done by the artists by applauding heartily every number.

The Broad Street Conservatory of Music, No. 1331 South Broad Street, began its regular fall term Monday, October 9th. During the summer months the building was thoroughly renovated. The faculty numbers some forty artist-teachers of international reputation, and includes such celebrities as Gilbert R. Combs, the director; Dr. Hugh A. Clarke, Henry Schradieck, and many others equally as well known. The registration this season has far exceeded that of last year, and specially well represented are the Western and Southern States, showing that the conservatory has a national as well as a local reputation.
