| The chief musical event of the past week has
been the really excellent concert given by the pupils of the Royal Irish Academy of Music, on the occasion
of the annual distribution of prizes by Her Excellency the Lady Lieutenant, on Saturday evening, 7th inst.,
at the Royal University. An interesting organ recital, including selections from the works of J. S. Bach, Rinck,
Hesse, and Silas ; the performers being Misses Mary Mason, Maud Edwards, Caro Killingley, Annie Hopkins,
and Mr. Campbell-Nicholl, agreeably entertained the large audience until the arrival of the vice-regal party.
After the distribution of prizes, in the obtaining of which over a hundred candidates were successful in the various branches, a very enjoyable programme of vocal and instrumental music was performed by the most distinguished students. . . . Other items were violoncello solos, capably rendered by Miss Mary Gallagher ; Saint-Saëns' "Fantasia in E flat," played on the organ by Miss Nora Ahern, a clever young lady, and the winner of the organ first prize and scholarship ; and the Irish melody, "I once loved a boy," pleasingly sung by Miss Lily Leonard. . . .
