The stage was artistically decorated with roses and carnations. Mr. and Mrs. Garst are well known here having both been residents of the city some ten years ago when Mrs. Garst had great local reputation as a teacher. Since leaving Wichita, Mr. and Mrs. Garst have studied under some of the greatest teachers in this country and abroad, remaining a year or so in Europe, each trip culling from the best musicians in England, Germany, France
and Italy. Among the famous teachers, they have studied under are Wm. Whitney and Madame Hall of Boston ,the great Vannucini of Florence, Italy; Madame La Grange of Paris and Geo. Henshel of London who is considered the greatest teacher of oratorio and lieder.
With horn the Garsts were great favorites and he entertained them one summer at his cottage 'in Scotland and taught them, also, being the first time in his years of teaching that he had ever given any summer instruction. In Mr. and Mrs. Henschel's last concert tour in America, ne sent several pupils to them in Chicago, where they have a beautiful studio, and said publicly he considered them the very best teachers In
Chicago. Mr. Henschel is a composer of high excellence and one of the greatest musicians in the world.
