Camp Mooswa


Nova Scotia

Last season two boys from St. Louis
(10 and 12 years) attended Camp
Mooswa. The mother writes: "Mr.
S and I will go to Europe this Sum-
mer, taking our motor car, and we have
decided to send our boys to you again.
They prefer Mooswa to a European trip,
so you see you have won their hearts."

Missouri is some distance from Nova
Scotia. Our illustrated booklet will be of
interest to parents making a careful selec-
tion of a suitable camp for their boys.

If you want to choose your first teacher of SINGING, or to make a change,
because you do not notice decided progress in every lesson, go to

Madame C. de Rigaud

Telephone. n52 2647 Broadway, New York

In any case let her give a frank and reliable opinion and advice regarding your voice .

MME. FRIEDA LANGENDORFF, the great contralto of the Metropolitan Opera, New
York, and the Royal Operas of Berlin and Vienna, says:

May 1st, 1908.
I studied under the greatest masters wherever my professional life led me, but I
found nowhere as clear and natural a course of tuition as Mme. de Rigaud uses in
her lessons. In the many hours spent at her studio I have profited greatly by her thor-
oughly scientific method, and I am convinced that with her method of voice treatment
she has corrected all kinds of faults in an incredibly short time, and also that she de-
velops small voices so that they bloom out too large, individual and attractive ones.
To all my young studying colleagues I wish to say that Madame de Rigaud's beauti-
ful art of teaching has proven most helpful and valuable. [Translation.]

Mme. de Rigaud holds a number of equally strong and hearty endorsements from promi-
nent singers, which will be furnished on application.

Tone Production and the Art of Singing

Artist Pupils in All the Leading Opera Houses

The Weigester Studios of Vocal Music



OFFER a complete education for the singer, and invite personal applica-
tion or correspondence from those desiring the best in vocal instruction.
Pupils accepted at any time between September 15th and June 30th.

In order to place the Weigester method of singing and teaching of sing-
ing within the reach of those who are unable to attend the regular winter
sessions, a

Summer Term of Six Weeks is held annually near Elmira, N. Y .

Eighth annual session of the Weigester Summer School will open July 20, 1914

This special course has been planned to cover the entire art of singing. This does not
mean that a beginner in 6 weeks' time will become a finished singer, but that the entire
ground of vocal study is covered by means of lecture, class and private instructions; the
principles of correct tone-production are explained, and the qualifications of an artist are
brought out, in order that the students may work intelligently by themselves during the
time when they are away from an instructor.

Write to our New York address for Booklet C, which gives complete information
about Winter and Summer Sessions and Rates.
