Music and the Drama
Music and the Drama.
As regards these amusements Christchurch is very well supplied. In another place, under the head of “Societies,” we have referred to the Christchurch Musical Society. Besides this, we have four or five good brass bands, which are always ready to afford entertainment. The visits of professional musical talent to our city are neither few nor far between; none of any note thinking arrangements for New Zealand complete that do not include Christchurch. The same may be said of the drama. We have two theatres and several halls, and it is very rarely that one or more of them are not occupied by some company of local talent or European reputation.
