CONVENT HIGH SCHOOL. ANNUAL CONCERT. A Crowded Hall. The annual vocal and Instrumental concert, given by the pupils of the Convent High School in the Town Hall on Friday evening, filled : the. auditorium to overflowing, and as the weather was not unpleasantly close, the entertainment proved very enjoyable. 1't is the glad day of the year for the pupils when they- can show their friends arid parents the progress made, in musical study for the year. All the hard work is then forgotten, and the reward has come in the hearty recognition of merit, which, to the musician, is the breath of life, and the greatest of all rewards. And the pupils received this reward on Friday night in no stinted measure.
