The first students' concert of the Academy "for the higher development of pianoforte-playing in England" took place on Saturday afternoon, when the performances of several young lady pianists gave satisfactory evidence of the value of the mode of tuition adopted. The most juvenile of the students, Miss Randegger, particularly distinguished herself in Mendelssohn's capriccio brillante in B minor; other meritorious performances having been those of Misses Emily Tate, Carmichael, Stocken, Macrae, Porter, and Cheyne.
