Glee Club

Sketch of female academic writing on musical score

The Club has begun what promises to be another successful season. This will be assured if members keep up their enthusiasm, and attend the practises regularly. We need the whole-hearted support, too, of all musical students. It will not be out of place here to remind students of the object of this club. They are "to encourage and preserve a high standard of music within the College, and to render musical aid to charitable and other institutions."

We were unable last year, on account of the disturbance caused by the outbreak of war, to hold our Annual Concert and Dance, and our Annual Concert to the Missions to Seamen. Yet we may record a most successful concert to the Porirua Mental Hospital. This concert may perhaps be termed the best ever given by the Club, and we have to thank those members and others, who so willingly provided items, and worked for the success attained.

It is proposed this season to make an effort to hold concerts for the relief of distress caused by the war, and to provide concerts for the men at Trentham, in training for the front.

The membership of the club is limited, so those thinking of joining should do so without delay. There are still vacancies, especially for male voices.
