MASSACHUSETTS THE ANDOVER PRESS ANDOVER.

George Whitefield Chadwic Director Ol R Director furnishes for New England one of its greatest claims to fame, for he was horn within its boundaries in Lowell. Massachusetts, on November 13th, 18.54. At the age of fifteen he received his first instruction in organ playing from his brother, and despite his many other interests such as attending High School in Lawrence and serving as clerk in his father s insurance office, his interest in music grew so that he made some attempts at composition while still in school. At the age of eighteen, he entered the Conservatory, and studied organ with (ieorge Whiting. Dudley Buc k and Eugene Thayer, and Harmony with S. A. Emery. In 187(5 he left Boston to become head of the Musical Department of Olivet College. Michigan. Before leaving, however, he had attracted not a little attention as a concert artist and as a teacher. Olivet claimed him for one year; at the end of that time he went to Europe to continue his musical education. In Leipzig, lie studied with Jadassohn and Reinecke, studying orchestral composition, at whic h lie wanted most to try his hand, with the former. His greatest work at this time was an overture suggested by Irving ' s " Rip Van Winkle " . This was performed at the yearly examination in Leipzig and won tremendous approval. To quote one critic: " Its contents are fresh, it is architecturally well constructed. . . . " This critic ism may aptly he applied to any of his numerous excellent compositions. Having won fame abroad, he returned to Boston and to his Alma Mater. He joined the faculty of the New England Conservatory in 1881, teaching Harmony and Composition. He became Director in 1897, and through his efforts in that capacity, the Conservatory is now recognized as one of the highest of all musical universities. Mr. Chadwic k has had as pupils many familiar figures in the American music world such as: Wallace Goodrich, Frederic S. Converse, Arthur Whiting. Horatio Barker and Daniel Gregory Mason. He is one of America ' s most eminent composers. His works inc lude about a hundred songs, a number of symphonies, operas, operettas, overtures, choral works and much excellent chamber music. He was awarded the honorary degree of A.M. by Vale University in 1897, and that of LL.D. by Tufts College in 190.5. He is a representative of the art of music- in the Academy of Arts and Letters. Surely, we have every reason and right to be proud of our Director! In graduating, the Class of 1926 takes with it the pleasantesl recollections of Mr. Chadwic k. and leaves behind it the deepest gratitude for all his help, and every good wish for his welfare. Wallace Goodrich Dean of the Faculty A MAN of versatile accomplishments and with the most thorough qualities in every undertaking is our Dean of the Faculty — Wallace Goodrich, lie was born in Newton. Mass., May 27, 1871. When old enough to show a preference, he decided to follow a musical career. When only fourteen, he was organist in a small church. At fifteen he began studying organ with Henry Dunham at the Conservatory, and after three years of serious and concentrated work, he was given the position of organist and director of Kliot Church in Newton. During this time he pursued his musical education in Harmony. Counterpoint and Composition with Mr. Chad wick. In 1S!)4 he began his European study at the Royal Conservatory in Munich under Joseph Rheinberger and LudwigAbel. At the end of one year ' s study. Mr. Goodrich conducted publicly a composition of his own. an . I ve Maria for chorus and orchestra, and was awarded a silver medal for Composition and organ playing. Soon after this he travelled in Italy and France, finally settling down in Paris lo work with Widor — the superb organ composer. At this time Mr. Goodrich met the best composers and conductors of the day and learned much from them. During his last year abroad, he successfully conducted the orchestra of the City Theater of Leipzig and directed an elaborate ballet. In 1897 he returned to Boston and joined the faculty of the New England Con- servatory to teach organ. Ten years later he became Dean. For five years he was organist of Trinity Church and at one time organist for the Boston Symphony Or- chestra, appearing several times as soloist. During this time he was equally active as a conductor. Besides being one of the regular conductors of the Boston Opera Company, he organized the Choral Art Society and the Cecilia Society, both of which he conducted in many brilliant performances. His versatility does not stop there, however. — he still has one more claim to fame. He is probably the leading authority on Plain Song in the Tinted States. Not only has he introduced it in English in America, but he has given many instruc- tive lectures on the subject. All in all. Mr. Goodrich ' s truly American personality and his splendid musician- ship have been a great inspiration to us. and we feel richer for having known him and been guided bv him.

The charter members numbered only thirty-eights but the clul) membership has now reached its limit of one hundred members, and it already has a long waiting list. Its object is to promote closer association among the girls of the school, to encourage high scholarship and to foster school spirit. However, the " Con Club " does not neglect social activ ities. Various functions have been held this past year, including one formal and one informal dance in Recital Hall which were largely attended and greatly enjoyed.

The purpose of the organization, of course, was to further the practice of French conversation and to promote sociability among the club ' s members. At the regular meetings every two weeks, there is a discussion of French Plays and French Works, followed by a musical program. Very often a French lecture is given by a special guest or by a visiting artist.

Phi Mu Alpha, a social and honorary fraternity, was founded at the New Eng- land Conservatory of Music. Boston, in October 1901, for the purpose of promoting music in America, of forming a brotherhood of musical students and of increasing loyalty to the Alma Mater. Such success has marked the development of Sinfonia that it has expanded to thirty-two active chapters, situated all over the Tinted States. The individual chapters give a scholarship each year to one of their members. A national composition contest is held each year, and during the month of February every chapter gives a n ail-American program.

Chapters are also given to the piano and the organ. A final chapter deals with the orchestra itself as the crowning achievement in musical expression. " It is crammed with information and is also easy and interesting reading — which two things must continue to make it reach and instruct a large public. I have got a lot out of it myself already. " — Arthur Foo e, Composer, Boston. " We can heartily recommend Kelley ' s Musical Instruments; for while there are more elaborate treatises, they are not so clearly and agreeably written.
