For many years the music departments in Benton Harbor High School have been a thing
of widespread interest among the students and especially among the members of the community.
The bands are of paramount interest in the marching and football seasons, while the glee
clubs hold the spotlight through the fall and winter months. The fact that "Music hath charms," is
amply proven by the music departments in Benton Harbor High School.
Many successful operettas and music festivals have been given under the efficient musif
cal direction of Mrs. Grosse. Also she teaches harmony and turns out students who can write
their own music.
Our stern Prussian maestro, Mr. Schlabach, preside over our large boys' band. Also he
directs our high school orchestra.
The high school girls' band bursts forth into many musical notes under the direction of
Pinnegar, Feather, Ellett.

These are all picked voices chosen from the Glee Clubs, and they sing wherever a small
roup is used.
This year they entertained the Women's Club of Watervaliet, at Watervaliet, the Mason's
t the Masonic Temple, and the Lion's Club at the Hotel Vincent.
During the season before the operetta, choir rehearsals are temporarily discontinued un'
,l spring, when many engagements for them are anticipated.
In past years the choir has carried on much the same type of activity. The organiza'
ion has successfully existed in school for years and we know its success will continue.
