GIFT OF rue - NeunE bcarc 15 3o LIBRARY USE JNLY Copyrighted 19150 by W. Raymond McCI THE NEUME NEW ENGLAND CONSERVATORY OF MUSIC BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS Beethoven! . . . The heart and brain quicken at the name! Artist, teacher, heliever in his fellowmen, he speaks to ns across the span of a century. And his message, told through his music and his life-story, is a message of joy and brother- hood. Two thousand years ago the great Teacher of Nazareth taught that we should love men as brothers. Three centuries earlier, the Greeks had lived the truth that we should love beauty as art. In the life and art of Ludwig van Beethoven one sees this love of beauty and love of humanity as two powerful creative forces. Through these forces he wrought supreme works of musical art. To succeeding generations his music and the example of his heroic life ha e brought joy. comfort and faith. We are musicians. Here is one of the greatest figures in the history of our art. Let us make him our companion. The life which we are to enter following this period of study will have its difficulties, perhaps its sorrows. Our ideals will be challenged and too often will we be tempted to lower them. In such hours let Beethoven counsel us, as he had to counsel himself. For was not he beset by just such difficulties! ' Did he not know suffering and disappointment in almost unbearable measure? The life of the ordinary man, deaf, sick at heart, afflicted with an incurable malady, would have become embittered and sterile. Beethoven ' s spirit did not break, and lo! out of the depths of anguish rose one of the glories of an age — the Ninth Symphony: A mighty chorus, fired by the genius of this Titan, bursts into a frenzy of joy and tri- umph. The music surges through heart and brain; it carries the voice of humanity to the gates of Heaven itself. . . And that voice is Beethoven, hymning of human brotherhood and of joy everlasting. LUDWIG VAN BEETHOVEN He towers above US in bronze, as in the flesh he towered anions his contemporaries. His sculptured face declares intellect, nobility, a powerful determination, and, withal, human tenderness. The massive head seems to shake defiance at all that is ignoble and trivial of today, as during his lifetime it defied Fate itself. TO GEORGE WHITEFIELD CHADWICK, Dean of living American composers and our Director, we dedicate this book. Few of those who signify in the musical life of America but have felt the influence of this eminent teacher and composer. A gracious personality, a man of high ideals, a friend to youth, he commands our admiration, respect and affection. Autumn winds .twirl the dry leares orer fields turninq brown. The foliage it ablaze with scarlets, russets an I yellow against the erergreen. The fiel Is hare yieldel their harvests, the wine is drawn. In loors, by the glowing fireplace, books arc rea l, muxir is hear ! an I reminis: ences are share! in the leisure and comfort earned by toil. From a smouldering West the sun suffuses the landscape with a genial warmth. It it autumn, the golden season. Thus does a rich personality, in the fullness of its years, shed warmth on the lives around it. In its golden season, such an honore I life reaps the harvest of m el to we I frien ' ships; it delights in eager youth who rejoice in its achievements and who seek to share its ripened wisdom. It gives freely the fruits from a life of Creative effort, and in giring is blessed by those to whom such gifts hare brought inspiration and joy. " Therefore I summon age To grant youth ' s heritage. " — Browning: Rabbi Ben Ezra GEORGE WHITEFIELD ( HAD WICK, A.M., LL.D. On May 6, 1880, Mr. Chadwick made his bow in Boston as composer and con- ductor when he led the Handel and Haydn Society in the performance of his overture to " Rip Van Winkle " . This work, first performed here by the Harvard Musical Association on December 11, 1879, had made a profound impression where heard in European music centers. Mr. Chadwick was then twenty-five and, as he says, quite unknown. To his debut in Boston he looks back in happy retrospection, and we join with him in observing the fiftieth anniversary of the beginning of an illustrious career as composer, conductor and teacher. FOREWORD TO remind us that Yesterday is a pleasant memory. Today is the living of yester- day ' s dreams, and Tomorrow is a vision into that arch of experience wherethrough " Gleams that untraveled world whose margin fades Forever and forever, ' ' we present the " Neume " of 1930.

Whitnei !) RALPH L. FLAXDERS Under modern conditions the success of a large institution which deals in a non-commercial commodity such as art is dependent in no small measure upon the ability of him who directs its financial and business affairs. The practical aspect musl be expertly handled if the institution is to exist. The service which the General Manager has rendered the Conservatory is self-apparent in its success. Of him. as well as of the others who direct its affairs, one might say : " If you would see their monument, look around you. " WALLACE GOODRICH There is a dignity, breadth of interests and scholarship about Mr. Goodrich that well befits the dean of faculty of such an institution as the ( ' onsen atory. The quality of the teaching and the whole atmosphere of the school reflects the quality of mu- sicianship and character of our dean. Coming in frequent contact with this teacher and artist, how many of us but have reason to remember with gratitude his counsel and encouragement? His patient and kindly manner has endeared him to the student body, in whom he shows a sincere interest that continues long after graduation. In this gracious lady, visitors and students alike find a pleasant introduction to our school; and to girls from distant homes she is a constant friend and ready ad- viser. f if mm 39 n jfflemonam In the passing of these five teachers the Conservatory has suffered an incalcu- lable loss, and distinguished figures have departed from the musical life of Boston. To eaeli his musicianship was his especial gift, not to be appraised by any material standards, but by the excellence of its spiritual and artistic influence upon those n bose lives it touched. After his graduation from the Conservatory Stuart Mason continued his studies in France with Philipp, Rugo, Wormser and Gedalge. Returning to America he was appointed a member of the pianoforte faculty of his Alma Mater. Mr. Mason ' s extensive studies in French music brought him a European reputation and led to his being twice decorated by the French Government. As a composer of recognized ability he produced works for piano, voice and orchestra. Mr. Mason ' s passing in the very prime of his life is a distinct loss to the Conservatory and to the cause of the advancement of music in America. Dr. J. Albert Jeffery, for thirty years a faculty member, studied under Reinecke in the Leipzig Conservatory where he received his doctorate, and under Liszt at Weimar. His best known composition " Ancient of Days " was written following the words of the late Bishop Win. C. Doane, under whom Dr. Jeffery served as organist of All Saints Cathedral in Albany, New York. William II. Dunham, widely known in musical circles, became associated with the Conservatory in 1S!), ' J. As a young man he turned his attention to singing, study- ing first in Boston with Dr. Guilmette ami Signor Rotoli, then in Europe with .lean DeReszke and other distinguished teachers. Both in Europe and America Mr. Dun- ham had a long and valuable experience as teacher and concert singer. Ella Dyer DeVoto remained at the Conservatory, following her graduation in 1910, as assistant to her pianoforte teacher, Mr. DeVoto, whom she later married. Mrs. DeVoto showed unceasing interest in the activities of the school, being alumnae secretary of Mu Phi Epsilon and a charter member of Pi Kappa Lambda. Her many pupils and friends will lovingly remember her as an accomplished musician and a woman of great charm of personality. Edwin L. Klahre received his boyhood musical instruction from his father, later studying with Joseffy in New York. Anton Bruckner at the Stuttgart Conservatory, and Scharwenka who, impressed by his talents, took him to Liszt. On his return to America Mr. Klahre achieved a wide reputation as concert pianist. He became a teacher in the Conservatory where for forty years he rendered invaluable service. 16 % If WM William Dunham Edwin Klahre Dec 31, 1858-Jan.

Shelley: Hellas In the midst of t lie preparations which mark the close of a period of conserva- tory study and the opening of a new life as yet uncharted and problematical, let us pause a moment in sober contemplation of life in its broader sense, of the significance of our art, and of the meaning of a culture in the building of which we can play ail unique part. Several times in the course of history a strange spirit has animated men. Burn- ing white-hot in heart and brain, it has kindled an insatiable passion to create beauty and teach truth through art. Indeed, the greatness of a civilization and its value to us rest upon the presence among its people of this spirit. Conquests and commerce lose their significance; it is poetry, art, music and philosophy which provide the stock in trade of succeeding epochs. In Hellas this spirit blossomed. In the Age of Pericles there was wrought an art and culture whose grandeur has never been ecpialled. During the Middle Ages this passion took the form of religious fervor, and bands of humble people, toiling long years in patient faith, reared the Gothic cathedrals, mighty edifices perpetuating a religious idealism. Three centuries later the Hellenic spirit bloomed again, and from the cities of North Italy there poured forth the glories of Renaissance art. Once more the spirit flourishes in Elizabethan drama, in the rich lore of English poetry, and in the music of the German composers. The qu estion is: where next shall this spirit manifest itself? America is on the threshold of her greatness. Her resources are enormous, ;i- is the energy of her people. What shall be done with these tremendous forces? Shall they be wholly expended in material aggrandizement or shall there be time and en- ergy for art, literature; for those imperishable things which we cherish of the peoples who have preceded us? It is hard to conceive of progress or of culture as being wholly expressed in the prodigal manufacture of one or another kind of mechanical contriv- ance which tend to rob us somewhat of our privacy or even of our personal safety. This is not meant to be humorous. There does exist a grave danger in mistaking the thing for the spirit. In our own province of music it is far more important for the spiritual as well as the artistic development of children that they learn to play or sing as beautifully as they can, however simply, than to sit passive listeners before the latest " creation " of mechanical reproduction (our " appreciation experts " to t lie contrary!). The educational possibilities of such auxiliaries to musical training are not being overlooked. A plea is being made, however, for actual participation in music wherever possible. In adult life there is need for a revival of the amateur spirit. We must experience things ourselves and not depend wholly upon the turning of a lever to bring us entertainment, the value of much of which is certainly questionable. 34 The founders of our country fought for independence and began the most unique democ ratic experiment in history because of ideals. The pioneers who wrested an empire from the wilderness had vision and courage. It is only when an unknown young man, modest, fearless, able, seeking no material benefit, dares to fly alone across an ocean that we wake to discover that the spirit of heroic achievement still lives. There is perhaps an even greater need for men and women with daring, imagin- ation and idealism to venture beyond the spiritual limits of present-day life. Is this too lofty idealism; is the theme too grave for this occasion? Is it true that only a thin stratum of society will concern itself with things spiritual and artistic, living by the highest standards, sensing the real values of life? Will not eventually the level of intelligence and appreciation be raised? These are questions we must ask ourselves; and in striving to fulfill the needs which these issues sub- sume, we can exert a profound influence because of the universal appeal of our art. None but the best and noblest in thought and art should we countenance, and by we is meant to include all those in the many activities of life whose purpose it is to promote the spiritual and intellectual welfare of our people. It is time to take a definite position in the matter of higher standards. It is not enough that we be pil- grims, worshipping at the shrines of beauty and truth. We must be protagonists who once having visioned a noble destiny for our people rest not in our efforts to promote its achievement. If America is to be great it will be because of you and me and mil- lions like us. We seem to forget that fact, and only a great war, terrible, devastating, arouses us to the realization that we all are (or are made to be) vitally interested in the national good. Yes, this is idealism, but if the art of Greece, the poetry of Eng- land and the music of the German peoples were the outcome of idealism, we cannot have too much of it. The spirit which burned in those great epochs of history shall burn afresh in the New World. Let " the golden years return " and let this nation, founded by Washington, given democratic organization by Jefferson, preserved by Lincoln and given ideal expression by Wilson, let this nation gain, that closer spiritual unity, that higher destiny which finds its greatest expression in creative achievement. Then to a degree of material comfort unknown in history shall be added that degree of spiritual excellence which ennobled Hellas, and these shall make for us the nearest approach to the long-dreanied-of Ltopia. that model state, that happiest land this side of Paradise.

Following the evolution of musical life of this country for the length of six years, I come to recognize the extraordinary musical development of Boston during this period of time: the attainments in that sphere of Art are proven by the intense and vital interest shown for music here. It may be said with confidence, that Boston is to-day one of the foremost musical eentres of the whole universe.

Only a few acquire this mark of distinction which is given in recognition of musical ac - complishments, whether as soloist, composer or teacher. Requirements for the degree include an individual recital, a performance with the orchestra. Faculty Council examinations, and a thesis. Those who complete satisfactorily this course may he justly proud of the letters placed after their names. 74 I Fourth Year Third Year Second Year Collegiate Department Course Leading to the Degree of Music Ruth E.

A memorial in the form of a bronze bas-relief was presented to the Conservatory through the efforts of Ruth Bernard, who, as President of the Club, initiated the project.

Zeta chapter is the only strictly musical chapter in the fraternity. Although Alpha Chi Omega is a collegiate fraternity, its traditions embody the appreciation of music and its sister arts, and the attainment of a high moral and mental standard. Scholarship is emphasized not only because high rank supports national prestige, but also because the fraternity believes that a certain degree of intellectual accomplish- ment will enrich the life of each member. Among the national altruistic work of the fraternity is the National Scholarship for Children, the yearly activity of each member on Hera Day. March 1, and the MacDowell Colony Studio. 9 Alpha Chi Omega OFFICERS Eleanor Hiblet Kathryn Thieme Frances Boothby Melha Smith M ky Bahtlett Elizabeth Wa k e f eeld Dorothy Bearce LVLA HoDGSON Priscilla Duncan Mary Priscilla Bahtlett Dorothy Bearce Marjorie Black i ' k wces boothhy Mary Dabbs Mary Dinning Priscilla Duncan Marjorie Dunn Eathel Finley Sylvia Hodgson Virginia Knight Agatha Marshall Mildred Martin Mas.

In 1898 an organization known as the Sinfonia Club was formed by members of the faculty and men stud ents at the New England Conservatory of Music at Hoston. L nder the name Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia Fraternity of America, which was suggested by one of its founders, George W. Chadwick, it was incorporated in 1901 as a national fraternity, becoming social, honorary, and professional in scope. Sinfonia now has fifty active chapters in conservatories and colleges throughout the country. The purpose of this fraternity is to encourage advancement of music in America, to form a brotherhood among music students, and to increase loyalty to the Alma Mater. Sinfonia is keenly interested in the development of American music and the recognition of works by native musicians. Each chapter in Phi Mu Alpha presents yearly an Ail-American program of representative works of the best American com- posers, and awards a prize to the member who writes the best original composition. 98 Phi Mu Alpha OFFICERS Alcott Woolsey Beardsley John Daniels EDV Mil) MuGGLEB II lrold Schwab Paul Bauouss Russell Hinman John Sheldon George IIove.n . .

Our demure and prepossessing future-musie-marm, Marion Skillings added a new wrinkle to the art of orchestration when she tried to make the oboe play double stops; but as Marion Newell, pretty but pert, marked bowings on her trumpet and horn parts, we allow as how such errors do happen with the best of girls. (Editor ' s note: No man would make these errors! I Jan. 21. Prim Helen Lesiuk ' s name was today correctly pronounced by Mr. McC ' lure, he now sharing with Mr. Findlav the distinction of having performed that feat. Feb. 12. The now-famous coat has been found. The secret is out. Beatrice had been singing for the " Mystic Knights of the Sea " and for reasons known only to the police. Amos ' n Andy and her, the affair broke up suddenly. However, Beebee. Kingfish, Battleax, and Andy have agreed to let bygones be bygones: and chivalrous Amos has offered to transport our heroine free in the Fresh Air Taxicab. " Too much fresh air " , says Beatrice. And we allow as how her voice, which ought to be the envy of many more pretentious singers, merits careful watching. Feb. 25. Mr. Beardsley reports that after school hours he and Melba Smith encountered Bertha Connors with the tall blonde man for the 16th time by actual count. The indictment applies to both cases, Al. Graduation is not far away, and these matches, like Ben Brown ' s moustache, ought to come off soon. Apr. 1. The impossible achieved! Betty Moon was April Fooled. " Nobody fooled me " , chuckled Betty as she tucked in the sheets at 7.4.3 P.M. Alas! From Gardner Hall there sounded a dominant seventh chord. It did not resolve. Betty groaned. " Fooled you that time " , sang Eleanor Smith. " Well, I ' ll be consarned " , growled Betty. (Ed. note: " consarned " is a popular word among Mainiacs.) Apr. 4. A committee reports that although it searched high and low for evidence of humorous content regarding Burdette Couts, it found nothing scurrilous to print about that reserved and dignified miss. Apr. 7. The Boston Post, complying with numerous requests from Conservatory students, announces the start of a comic strip entitled " Rita in search of a husband who isn ' t a musician " , which bids fair to rival " Benny in search of a home " . Yes. Rita Ford is the girl. Apr. 9. Voted at a corridor caucus: The busiest girl, whether playing the golden harp, selling Xeumes, keeping senior records, or just talking — Artiss deVolt. The least busy girl who gets along famously — Betty Fox. The most sophisticated girl for her age — Bertha Olsen. Showing least improvement in clarinet technique — Lois Spalding. Making most numerous changes in gentleman friends -Lillian einot. Showing greatest variety in lady friends — George Hoyen. Apr. 15. Our printers, Andover Press, report loss of copy pertaining to Evelyn Mayer. They suspect Evelyn, who lives in Andover and presumably was anxious lest the accounts of her frivolities at the 1929 Supervisors ' Conference in Phila- delphia be published. 110 Iff Apr. 2(5. Nellie Snow, who has kept her good disposition in spile of her many NeUME duties encountered Pauline Newington and Madeline Jamieson, our adver- tising specialists, on Treniont Street. " Oh, " exclaimed Jamie, " we just interviewed the manager of the Sulliver R it SOU Music ( Company, and he was t he nicest man. ami so handsome! lie showed us through his store and even gave US passes to Waldron ' s ( ' asino. He was so interested in us! " " And how about the ad? " , queried N el lie. with an eye to business. " Well, I ' ll he doggoned, " broke in Pauline. " That settles it. Jamie, ' do the talking hereafter! " May 1. German classes suspended while Mrs. Ellis pilgrimages to South Boston to visit a German liner. Frau Ellis shows a decided liking for Wiener Schnitzel, l.eberwurst, Sauerkohl, Kueken, Schmalz, and polite German officers, despite her Welsh ancestry. " It makes me want to board the next Bremen-hound ship, " sighed Mrs. Ellis; " alles ist sehr gemiitlieh! " May (i. Mr. Warren Story Smith, who besides being a fiend for cornering ab- struse chords and stretching seventeen piano keys with one hand, appreciates a good joke even when it is on himself. Can you picture him alighting from a subway car at Massachusetts Station Under, spreading an umbrella over his august person, carry- ing his wife ' s handbag in one hand? A kindly guard, presumably thinking him another of those absent-minded professors, assured him that it didn ' t rain down there and probably assisted him to the stairs. We don ' t know that. May 8. Betty Hawthorne was forced to admit her inability to play an instru- ment which had been found in an Egyptian tomb. Betty feels downcast but has vowed that in two weeks she will play the strange instrument. May 14. Alfred Swenson, modest of modest men, spoke when not called upon today, and went so far as to say " darn " . What is the younger generation coming to when such a word comes from such a person ! May IS. While strumming the piano in room . ' 310, Eddie Wilson discovered that small G was two vibrations below normal pitch. May L 25. Raymond McClure delivered an informal lecture on the benefits of Practice Teaching. He feels that he has gotten a great deal from his Saturday morn- ing work. We go so far as to connect this unusual interest with his interest in Dana Hall.

B. 112 in mm The Neume would he incomplete were not some mention made of the seniors who worked so zealously in its preparation and sale. My thanks of course go first to the members of the Neume Board, whose names appear elsewhere. Next, I wish to thank those individuals, conspicuous among whom are Ruth Lobaugh, Beatrice Ailing. Marion Skillings, Rita Ford, and Betty Fox, who laboured unselfishly in promoting this enterprise and who otherwise would receive no recognition save my gratitude. Acknowledgments The Editor-in-Chief 11. ' ! The curtain falls upon the closing scene of a drama whose theme has appeared since time immemorial in the stories of many peoples and which Richard Wagner has immortalized in an opera that stands at the summit of modern music. We hear with reluctance the final strains of a music drama whose emotion springs eternal from human experience. Such music can affec t our very lives; it can fire the heart, it can enrich the soul. EPILOGUE And now the curtain falls upon the scenes of our Conservatory life. Reluctantly we take leave of our classmates. We go to a new life in which too soon these familiar faces shall he dimmed, the voices become faint. But though the companionships he dissolved, let us remember that the friendships can live on in the memory, and that such friendships, like great music, have enriched our lives. 114 Advertisements STUDENTS!
