The Spike or Victoria College Review, June 1903

Concert and Play

Concert and Play.

To show the joy all felt at the thought of beginning work again, and to raise some money for the Easter trip, the first evening of this term was given over to revelry, in the form of a concert followed by a play. An excellent programme was provided, and the thanks of the College is due to some of Wellington's leading musicians and reciters for the readiness with which they give their help on occasions of this kind. Misses Parker and Page opened the programme with a pianoforte duet, tastefully played. "A Summer Night" was sweetly sung by Mrs. F. P. Wilson. Miss Julia Moran was loudly recalled for her violin solo, Papini's "Tarantelle." Mr. J. M. Clark recited Disowning's "Hervé Riel" excellently, and was recalled. Mr. G. Toopsood gave a description of a cricket match in his best style. Mr. A. Newton achieved signal success in his song "A Girton Girl," describing the troubles of a young man who thought Tolstoi was a racehorse and who had to take a "new woman" to dinner. As an encore lie explained why "Mother laid the carpet on the stairs." Mr. E. F. Hiscocks was loudly applauded for his clever and amusing lightning sketches.
