Salon Singers

18 Mins.; Full Stage. Ralph Dunbar, he of lyceum and Chautauqua fame, sponsored the Salon Singers in vaudeville, the turn having just reached New York after an extended tour of the Orpheum Circuit in the west. It carries three men and two women, one of the male members accompanying on the piano. Two quartet numbers, one at either end of the repertoire are filled in with five solos, each member having an opportunity to exhibit  his or her individual ability. A comparison in this division would not be exactly the proper thing. Suffice to say the entire quintet acquitted themselves finely, combining to offer one of the most artistic straight singing specialties the big time uncovered some seasons.
