Holmfirth Choral Society.

The members of this flourishing society gave a grand miscellaneous concert for the benefit of the conductor, Mr. Joseph Perkin, in the large room of the Town Hall, Holmfirth, on Thrusday evening, which proved highly successful, the room being crowded. The principal performers were Miss Charlesworth, Miss Varley, Miss Crabtree, Miss Oldfield, Mrs. Coldwell, Miss Preston ; Messrs. Kay, Greenwood, Crosland, Etchells, and Burrel. Mr. Joshua Mellor presided at the pianoforte. Mr. Parkin [sic] was the conductor, and Mr. Etchell, the leader. The programme comprised songs, glees, madrigals, and duets, by Danby, Mozart, Glover, Perkin, Muller, and Linley. All the performers acquitted themselves well, and all present appeared highly gratified with the concert.
