Local Intelligence. PRIMITIVE METHODIST CONCERT. [Newspaper Article] — The Bowral Free Press — 5 April 1884
PRIMITIVE METHODIST CONCERT. It afforded ua unqualified pleasure to bo present at the concert given by the Primitive Methodist choir in the School of Arts, Bowral, on Monday evening last. The building was positively thronged with, au enthusiastic audience, and would almost give one the idea that Bowral hud literally made up its mind to witness tho affair en masse. The know ledge of a lull house must have inspired tho various pel form cvs with a determination to do their very best; the result being that the programme was gone through most successfully, no hitch or unpleasant ness marring it in any respect. The chairman seemed to be tho most happy man in the room, and infused a constant spirit of good-humor into every' inind there, whether singer or listener. A full house and a happy chairman are not of themselves suffi cient to satisfy; there must bo a third element to ensure success; and this third requisite is a good programme. Without doubt, these three elements were present on Mo...
