In the Church of Christ.
A musical and literary entertainment was given in the Church of Christ last evening for the benefit of the Ladies' Aid society of Syracuse. A large number were present. The programme consisted of literary selections by Wesley Lyman, the boy orator, and musical selections by the Mozart club, assisted by Charles Becker, violin ; C.W. Ball, flute; Mrs. C.E. Petty, contralto; Miss Edna Petty, soprano, and Mrs.J.E. Mosher, pianist. The selections, in costume, of Wesley Lyman and the soprano solo, "Cuckoo Song," by Miss Edna Petty, received great applause.
Hopefully this website will help celebrate the life between these events and
inspire a new generation to this superstar and the stage theatre of her time.
