  • Spring Number
  • Includes 'Euterpe in Melbourne', a piece of illustrated, lighthearted prose by the English writer Angela Thirkell (q.v.). Describing first the rehearsal, and then the performance, Thirkell reports the experience of attending a concert of the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra. Performed under the conductorship of Fritz Hart and held in the Melbourne Town Hall, the concert drew remarkable crowds; Thirkell observes, that this 'packed mass of humanity' was evidence of the 'alarming passion of the Melbourne public for orchestral music'.
  • Contains a brief section, '"The Sun" and "The News"', recounting an anecdote relating to Samuel Bennett (q.v.) the founder of Sydney's first evening newspaper, The Evening News. (content appears in the column, 'Just Before We Begin -')
