The Spike: or, Victoria University College Review October, 1920

Glee Club

Glee Club

Female academic writing on musical score

So as not to interfere with the Extravaganza practices this Club remained in abeyance during the first term. When, however, a start was made in June, a moat enthusiastic band of singers assembled beneath the baton of the Club's staunchest friend, Mr. Wilson.

The opening function took place on Monday, 30th June, when a social and dance was held in the Gymnasium. A really splendid evening resulted— an evening the enjoyment of which was enhanced rather than lessened by the doubtful nature of the liquid refreshment. The committee takes this opportunity of officially stating that the beverage was coffee, and that, in spite of any evidence to the contrary, did contain milk.

The Club this year rejoices in the membership of a rather satisfactory number of male voices, with whose assistance some very fine work has been attempted and very creditable results achieved.

The 8—9 lecture is a considerable handicap, and in extending the practice hour from 9 to 9.30 an attempt has been made to enable enthuiasts to keep in touch with the Club's activities.

One of the principal aims of the Club is social, and the committee, as the summer advances, intends to keep this already in view.
