Another specialty of the week was the grand concert given at St. James's Hall on Wednesday afternoon, by Madame Christine Nilsson, in aid of the funds required to obtain a permanent site for the Westminster Training School and Home for Nurses. As already mentioned, the concert given by Madame Nilsson last year, for a similar purpose, realised a sum of 900. The programme of Wednesday's concert included performances by Madame Nilsson and other eminent artistes (chiefly of Her Majesty's Opera), conducted by Mr. Arthur Sullivan.
