These events issued out of a continuous and common endeavor to attain commonly cherished ends. Similar goals destined us to converge here. Being here has given us a common heritage based on a mutually shared past. Our parallel purposes are best epitomized in the acknowledged objectives of the Conservatory which are to produce broadly educated, responsible citizens, musically literate and possessing the artistic zeal to create music, project music and stimulate in others an understanding and love of music. This book may then be considered a register of achievements and aspirations; a sum of acts and attitudes. It is properly dedicated to the perpetuation of an association which found its origin in common goals.

O ' Shaugnessy The Music Makers Wt Page seven Lorna Cooke de Varon Lorna Cooke deVaron was born in Weston Springs, Illinois. Her parents came from the far West, and her great grandparents crossed the prairie to Oregon in covered wagons. She attended schools in Illinois and started piano lessons at the age of four. At the age of six she sang solos in church pageants and school operettas, When she was fifteen years old, she moved to Rhode Island with her family, and there took voice and piano lessons and accomp- anied dance groups. She was President of her high school Glee Club, and at the age of sixteen won the highest honors for Rhode Island in a piano contest conducted by the National Music Teachers Association. In Wellesley College, where she received her A.B. in 1942, she majored in music, studied theory and harmony with Nadia Boulanger, was the college song leader, and was active in the choir during her four years. She wrote and directed the music for the college musical show, studied piano with David Barnett, voice with Olga Averino, and organ with Carl Weinrick. She received her Master of Arts in Music at Radcliffe College where she was Assistant Conductor of the Radcliffe Choral Society and the Radcliffe Choir. At Radcliffe she studied choral com- position with Archibald Davison, composition with Walter Piston, and choral conducting with G. Wallace Woodworth. At the age of twenty-three she was appointed to the music faculty at Bryn Mawr College, where she conducted the choir and became Assistant Professor of Music at the age of twenty-five. She studied at Tanglewood in 1946 and 1948 with Robert Shaw, and joined the Tanglewood faculty as assistant to Hugh Ross in the Choral Department in the summer of 1953. In addition to teaching choral conducting, Mrs. deVaron has also taught theory, choral and vocal repertoire, harmony, counterpoint, composition, music history, and voice. In 1947 she came to conduct the chorus and teach choral conducting at the New England Conservatory of Music. When asked why she chose music as a career she replied: " I went into music because it was the most natural thing to do— from earliest childhood. Music is less bound by dimensions than any other art form. It may be enjoyed by a greater number of people at the same time. There is no language barrier, and there are no space barriers, and more people can work together to re- create music than is possible in any other art form. " I believe choral singing has more of this great advantage than any other form of music, for a group of people singing together can create more intense beauty in a united effort than any one person in the group can do alone. " In answer to the question, how would you describe the mission of the New England Conserva- tory Chorus, she replied: " To promote the movement of ensemble singing from the New England Conservatory out into as many schools and communities as possible. What a chance this is for you to help foster the positive, the creative, and the progress toward beauty in a world torn by friction and destruction. Chorus gives us a chance to get to know and to make great music to- gether. Your concerts at Jordan Hall, at Boston pops, at the museums, and at the Boston Arts Festival all round out your musical year with a wide variety of music which you get to know from the point of view of the executant and the performer, not just as a listener. In addition to re- pertory, you also learn the strict demand and the striving for perfection with which all artists must be involved in the making of great art. The magic of your Boston Symphony concerts, con- certs in which the most is demanded of you; your close association with a great orchestral con- ductor; your participation in what will be your closest brush with musical perfection; the fine polish of the detail, the deep tone and feeling and spirit of the whole; these high artistic mom- ents will stay with you and will inspire you as you go forward in music. " Watching a freshman, green to Chorus and sometimes insensitive to choral singing, develop by senior year into a mature, loyal leader of chorus, a fine and enthusiastic musician ready to go out and spread ' the word . This is the most rewarding experience of all. " Mrs. deVaron, the senior class proudly dedicates the 1956 Neume to you. We feel sure that you will continue your excellent work in guiding future music students as capably as you have guided us. Page nine Works Performed by The J. H. - Jordan Hall B. S.

We finally chose the sonata form. This, because the sonata form was not only expedient for organizing the material but afforded an op- portunity for a subtle presentation of it that could be appreciated by the students of a music college. The following outline purposes to demonstrate this adaptation of the sonata form: FIRST MOVEMENT Introduction Administration and Faculty Exposition Graduates Development Freshmen, Sophomores, Juniors Recapitulation Seniors SECOND MOVEMENT Theme and Variations-Performing Groups Variation I Chorus Variation II Orchestra Variation III Popular Band THIRD MOVEMENT Organizations and Clubs Minuett Fraternities and Sororities Trio Clubs Minuett da capo FOURTH MOVEMENT Finale Class Will Snapshots Advertisements CODA Jntrtimrtttti Page seventeen To every member of the Class of 1956, I wish a bright and fruitful future. It is my hope that you will continue to develop and advance the learning disciplines and performing skills which you have practised during your student careers - that you will retain a healthy curiosity and desire to search out the new and worthy. Last but not least important, I hope that you will share your experiences with your Alma Mater and thereby strengthen the loyal bonds which you have earned and upon which we all place great value.

" Mr. Roland Nadeau of the faculty was the class advisor. He was elected by the class. We shall always be indebted to him. The class held a dance on March 24 in Brown Hall. Its theme was " The Bunny Hop. " This was the only dance of the year to be held on a Saturday night. The class also took the responsibility of selling book covers, banners and decals for the Student Council. " Quite a sum of money was made.

The officers elected for the year were President, Beverly Mason; Vice-President, Jeannette Peniuk; Secretary, Dick Aslanian; Treasurer, Peter Kekligian. The first dance of the " 55- ' 56 season was organized by the class. The Horror Hop, as well as being an extra original idea, was well received by the people attending . Everyone had a " ghoul- ish " time! Most of our original members are still with us, and in addition we have some new students who have brought in new ideas and new activities. For the remainder of the year we are planning such things as outings, Spring Sing, and sports. Our a I way s-wi I ling-to-help members have assisted Student Council in sponsoring activities for the whole school including the Snow Ball, the hayride, and student dances. As a whole the members of our class are among the most active participating students in school and social functions. We are looking forward to our Senior Year at N .E .C ., the year in which our happy memories will come to a sad ending.

Page fifty -eight he Fourth Movement is well underway . The grand and de- lightful themes of our beginning now rising to fuller maturity - themes of ambition and idealism culminating from the expansive allegro of first years, the mellow andante of sophomore security, a smartly-turned scherzo bridging our way toward this finale of our musical experience. During this time, these themes have been richly developed - the harmonies of friendship, the added color of broader horizons, modulation of ideas and mind and values. Yet, now, we cannot strive toward an exact recapitulation. We must both modify and expand our natural and acquired material in an effort to harmon- ize these years with a new future - to merge a past and present that will result in greater meaning. Not with hypocritical sentiment - not with careless joy - not with sad farewells and an endless recall of memories shall we conclude. Ahead of us lies life and a large world. It would be pretentious to assume that the problems facing the class of ' 56 ' are either new or unique. Failure or success - the determining factor is within each individual self. What we have accomplished and composed as a class - the whole symphony of years and work and experience - now remains to be extended to the world through each one of us. We shall strive not only for a materially successful life, but also for a life of quality and meaning. There in lies the grand theme. 211] ere is something maruelous in music (31 m tgt] t almost sag it is, in itself, a marueL 3lts posi- tion is somemljere betmeen tlje region of tljougl]t and tljat of phenomena 4 , a glimmering medium betmeen mind and matter, related to boll] and get differing from either.

Heine Page sixty Page sixty-one llje Chorus his fall, the Conservatory Chorus members welcomed back their prominent conductor, Lorna Cooke de Varon, who for a half year, had been on leave of ab- sence . Through her untiring efforts, the one hundred twenty members soon be- came a unified body, inspired by their conductor ' s enthusiasm and pride in doing fine choral work . An unusual and perhaps unique type of organization may be found in Chorus, which actually is made up of voice majors, music education majors and those joining voluntarily. Many of the policies of the group are determined by elected officers. This year, Chorus has been very fortunate in having Lewis Cella as President, assisted by Julia Steinis and Edwin Burke, Vice-Presidents; Elaine Barry, Secretary; Janet Harper and George Collins. All have been invaluable as sectional representatives, coordinating the efforts of all members of the Chorus, and organizing their various activities. On December 19, a group of thirty singers and four instrumentalists organized and directed by Edwin Burke, journeyed to Massachusetts General Hospital to sing Christmas Carols through the wards. This precedent has been kept by the Chorus in past years, and the officers are in hope that it will continue in the fu- ture . There was a full concert schedule for Chorus this year! The December 7th con- cert, with a dance afterward in Brown Hall sponsored by Student Council, was in the word of the Boston Herald critic, " a most unusual program, off the beaten path of the seasonal repetoire. " A high point of the evening was a Vaughn Williams ' work sung by the Alumni Chorus. On December 30, 31, a small, select group of women ' s voices performed Debussy ' s third Nocturne, Sirenes, with the Boston Symphony Orchestra, the not- ed Swiss musician, Ernest Ansermet, conducting. Later, on January 27 and 28, the full chorus presented its annual concert with the Boston Symphony Orchestra, the work being Debussy ' s Le Martyre de Saint-Sebastien, with Munch conducting. Again we had the privilege of recording this work with the Boston Symphony for RCA Victor. The spring concert in April was followed by the May 2nd performan- ce in Jordan Hall of Shubert ' s Mass in E Flat Major, Richard Burgin conducting. A chorus year would not be successful or complete without the Gardner Museum concert, May 6th, and last but not least, the Pop ' s night in Symphony Hall, June 9th. This year, the chorus has been accompanied by three loyal pianists, Buckner Gamby, Emily Fritzsche, and Patricia Gibson ... unsung, yet indispensable per- sons in a chorus schedule. " A smoothly-drilled, well-balanced choir with distinct attacks and releases, and a bright tonal texture " , commented one critic. The Cons ervatory this year may well be proud of its Chorus, with a spirit, enthusiasm, and cooperation in- spired by their conductor, Lorna Cooke de Varon. " Thanks Cookie! " Page sixty-three Page sixty- four gratifying and rewarding musical experience is in store for you as you enter Jordan Hall and observe the rehearsals of the New England Conservatory Orchestra, under its eminent conduc- tor, Richard Burgin, concert master and assistant conductor of Boston Symphony Orchestra. Mr. Burgins relentless drive tow- ards the creation of a fine orchestra is an inspiration to its mem- bers and all concerned. His musicianship and keen understand- ing of orchestral problems are constant reminders that the Con- servatory Orchestra is led by a truly fine conductor, Kenneth Schermerhorn, former conductor of the Seventh Army Symphony Orchestra in Stuttgart, Germany, has returned and is now conductor of the reading orchestra. Concerts are given by the New England Conservatory Orchestra throughout the year. In February, Jesus Maria Sanroma, pianist, performed three works with the orchestra. In December, an all Bach program was given, including the Brandenberg Concerto No. 2; The Bach Violin Concerto in E.Major; The Double Piano Concerto in C Minor, and The Peasant Cantata. Mr. Schermerhorn conducted the program with the exception of the Brandenberg Concerto, in which he played the very difficult solo trumpet while Mr . Charles Vandezande conducted . William Tesson, Chairman tUlje popular ©re 1} tra Page sixty-six popular Utustc department The Popular Music Department is now under the direction of William Tesson, Acting Chairman. The aim of this three year course is to prepare students to take their place in the profes- sional music world as instrumentalists, vocalists and arrangers. The Pop Orchestra is the workshop for this . It consists of twenty pieces. At the Orchestra rehearsals, the members read from pub- lished orchestral scores and original manuscript arrangements by students in the school . Thus, they gain a vast experience of reading various types of popular music. The Popular Orchestra presents programs in Jordan Hall, and here the arrangers, such as Paul Gay, George Guilbault, Phil Wilson and Graydon Williams hear their works played in public performances. Participation in these performances is part of the program designed to prepare the students in the department for professional work in the entertainment field, which includes dance bands and jazz groups, radio and television, and musical theatre . Creative work - whether as an arranger, a singer, or an instru- mentalist - is not only encouraged, it is a " must " for the musi- cian who wishes to enter the highly competive field of popular music. pie lone music for tlje buried Ijopes, tlje garnered memories, tlje tender feelings it can summon at a touclj.

Those interested in the club meet once a week for read- ings of various plays. The principal aims of the club are as follows: 1. To promote social relationships. 2. To aquaint students with standard dramatic literature. 3. To provide worthwhile dramatic productions for the entire student body. 4. To introduce to the students, through workshop per- formance, the functions and techniques of acting. With the help of the faculty advisor, Leo Snyder and director, George Guilbault, the Club pre- sented their first play ' A Child Is Born " by Stephen V. Benet, a Christmas production. The officers are: Clarence Cooper, President; Richard Beauregard, Vice President; Curt Allen, Treasurer; Barbara Wirth, Recording Secretary; Louise Orgettas, Corresponding Secretary; Carol Caselli and Jo Ann Rogers, Librarians.

This is a difficult ques- tion to answer, as it must cover such a wide range. While the writer could give the names of those filling im- portant positions, yet for fear that some who deserve most honorable mention may be forgotten, let us just re- call some of the work being done and some of the posi- tions being filled by members of the alumni. Let us begin with Grand Opera, where we can point with the utmost pride to those who have at- tained to the most eminent rank as singers. As Composers many are well known, while as Orchestral and Choral Conductors as well as members of the best orchestras, including the Boston Symphony Orchestra, they have made marked success. We find them occupying the Chair of Music in various colleges, and as members of the Faculty of the larger schools all over the country, including our own Conservatory. We find them in the public schools; we find them as private teachers, doing their best in all grades of the work; as organists, choir masters, and church singers, we find them in nearly every town, and city of any size in the land. If we are to become a musical nation there is much work yet to be done in educating the mass- es. In the last eighty years the New England Conservatory of Music has without doubt done more through its alumni and special students, to develop and elevate the musical taste of the people, throughout this nation than any other force or agency. e eighty j tutUnt Council Jesse Chapman Student Council is one of the most important and influential or- ganizations in the Conservatory. It ' s basic duty is to voice the student ' s desires and wherever possible to carry out these wish- es. It helps to maintain good feeling and cooperation between the students and administration. Its members are the Presidents of each class and representatives from Greek letter groups and other organizations. The officers for this year are; President - Jesse Chapman Vice-President - Alvin Ezer Treasurer - Elaine Barry Secretary - Beverly Mason — ' f . ♦ Front row: Julia Steinis; Annette Gauy; Cathryn Allaben; Alvin Ezer; Jesse Chapman; Elaine Barry; Beverly Mason; Margaret Daly; Shirley Jones.

Are music ed majors really musicians or can just anybody be in music ed? These are questions that buzz around, some- times asked openly and sometimes left unspoken but inferred. First of all, not just anybody is acceptable in music ed. The teaching of music in the schools has become a proud profession and counts among its active workers musician-teachers of top quality. First rate conductors of bands, orchestras and choruses; composer- teachers of theory; performing musicians teaching in- strumental classes; gifted musicians with a flair for reaching young children; broadly trained mu- sician-teachers in colleges; all dedicated to preserving music in our culture through making it understandable and available to the youth of our country. It is a herculean task, demanding skill, patience, ingenuity and endless energy, for the job of the music educator is to bring music to all youth, not just to the talented few who want it anyway. The training of music educators is a serious business at N.E.C. Those who enter must show promise of attaining both the musical standards and the personal development necessary for suc- cess in this difficult field. This means careful study of how children learn and the approaches through which that learning can best be accomplished. It means hours of practice on many in- struments as well as performing skill on the major instrument. It means carrying a terrifically heavy subject load every year in order to meet the certification requirements of 48 states. It means assuming responsibility and taking part in all manner of activities at N.E.C, from chorus and orchestra to class officers and committee members who plan for the professional and social life of the student body. It means fun too but the fun is always a part of the job. Music ed band is a horror to the ap- plied music major who does not know what it is all about. But to the music ed major it is a het- erogeneous instrumental class, conducted by seniors, where no one may play his major instrument but each must play all instruments in rotation and learn to play them by playing. The sounds are not soothing but by the end of the four years each student has a playing knowledge of all orches- tral and band instruments and a thorough understanding of how to teach them to boys and girls. This year, the band had met an old need in a new way by playing the arrangements made by the Juniors in their class in instrumentation. This has been so successful and valuable that it will be a regular function of the band hereafter. This band is original with N.E.C. in music education preparation, and the idea is spreading and being adopted by other training schools. We are proud of the increasing number of music ed majors who are appearing in public recitals at N.E.C. and assure you that the number will grow steadily. No, not everyone can be a teacher and not everyone can be an artist performer, but at N.E.C. there is room for all able, serious mu- sic students regardless of their chosen major field. Page eighty-two Borm it or g Jeannine St. Onge This proved to be a bustling year at N .E .C . House. The dorm sponsored many social events under the guidance and assistance of Mrs . Whitcomb and her assistant, Mrs . Henderson . The dances were a huge success with many male students from surrounding colleges in attendance. Music for these dances was provided by fellow students. If you should happen to wander into the dorm you would see many varied activities such as playing ping pong in the recrea- tion room, watching television, or someone playing the piano. After hours there are birthday parties or parties where everyone just gets together, sings, talks and just plain have fun. What a happy bunch! Then exams ... everyone tip toes around, no pianos or radios blaring... everyone studies. But all good (and bad) things must come to an end, so too exams. Hope to see everyone back at 129 Hemenway St. next year. Page eighty-three Frederick Rochester This year ' s staff of the Melodic Line has done its best to live up to the true standards of a school news- paper. We have completely changed the entire paper, adding a new titlehead and changing the size of the paper itself. Our staff this year has grown from eight to twenty, including one faculty columnist and advi- sor. We featured articles from Margaret C. Mason, Warren Storey Smith and Rand Smith, plus those from our competent staff. We have included not only serious articles but also humorous cartoons, ads and even a humor- ous analysis of a Bach chorale to keep all sides happy. To Mr. Hayden of the Publicity Relations Office we owe our deepest appreciation for his news of the present and past students who have achieved heights in the field of music. e eighty-jour Page eighty-jive Glass Pill To Mr. Silverman - a pair of fur-lined ear plugs for his music education instrumental classes.

Page eighty-six REMEMBER The social calendar for the year included many dances. All of these dances were sponsored by Student Council with each class in charge of two of the dances for the year. Needless to say the dances were quite a success, and a good time was had by all, even the chaperons! The F reshman Demerit Ball which followed a week of hazing was the first in the successful series. In November, month of witches and goblins, the Juniors came up with The Horror Hop. Price of admis- sion - one horrible looking face. Then came the big formal for the winter season. The Snow Ball. Brown Hall was beautifully decora- ted in the festive colors of the Christmas season . Pretty Jean Parker was chosen Queen of the Ball, and was presented with a huge bouquet of flowers . Page eighty-eight Paage eighty-nine Page ninety Page ninety-one Page ninety-two GOOD " T-E-A-M - Rah, Team !! ' Did you see and hear " Good News " in Jordan Hall last October 28th? If you didn ' t, you missed one of the most wonderful and most uni- que productions this school has ever seen. The show was pre- sented by the energetic Cape Cod- ders ' Club, under the sponsorship of the A I umnae Association, in co- operation with the Conservatory, with proceeds going to the Con- servatory Scholarship Fund. The light-hearted story con- cerns a football star, Tom Marlowe (Neil Patrick), who is Tait Col- lege ' s outstanding player. Tom has failed Astronomy under Pro- fessor " Comical Charlie " Kenyen (Rand Smith, of the faculty). Coach Johnson (Tony Rando) and trainer, " Pooch " Kearney (Dick Riske)are at a loss until Tom ' s girlfriend, Pat Bingham (Elaine Barry) sug- gests that her cousin, Connie Lane (Ann Rothgeb) coach Tom for his make-up exam. If Tom doesn ' t pass this test, it means he can ' t play in the all important game with Colton College. In the meantime, Tom ' s room- mate, Bobby Randall (John Foss) has troubles of his own. He ' s be- ing madly pursued by vivacious Babe O ' Day (Cece Hawkins), and forcibly threatened by Babe s ex- boyfriend, Beef Saunders (Andy Crisanti) to leave her alone. The merry pace of the comedy gallops from the campus to the dormitory and the sorority house to the Tait- Colton game itself. The enthusiastic audience " at- tended " the Tait- Colton game by means of a movie sequence, which was shot at English High School NEWS Field, and the entire cast deserves credit for braving a cold windy day to enact those scenes in cos- tume. Another feature of this pro- duction was a college pep rally with audience participation. The entire production was under the able direction of the Cape Cod- ders ' Club president, George Guil- bault. Productionwise, he was assisted by: Warren Joseph (of the faculty) and Frederick Rochester (pianists); Walter Taubert (pub- licity); Sally Chenoweth (assistant director); Marguerite Lenihan (prompting); Mr. McNeil (stage man- ager); Walter Howland (lighting); George Burdick (audio effects); Carol Kessel (choreography and properties); Barbara Godding (war- drobe); Mrs. Nelson of the Alumnae office (ticket sales). Additional credit is due the unsung heroes and heroines of the chorus who sang, danced, and played football as well. Other feature roles included: Sorority sister, Flo (Beverly True) and Millie (Alice Masitis); colle- gians, " Windy " (Curt Allen), and " Slats " (James Young); the Glee Club Trio - Jim (Bill McKim), Pete (John Kemp), and Ben (Bob Chap ■ man); bandleader George (Clarence Cooper); a constatnly hazed fresh- man, Sylvester (Paul Gay); and the Cheerleaders (Captain Noreen Mur- phy, Barbara Godding, Joan Hill, Donna Philbrick, Audrey McNair, LeonorVadi and Reed Whitbread). Among the familiar tunes were " The Best Things in Life are Free " , " The Varsity Drag " , " Lucky in Love " , " Just Imagine " " Happy Days " and " Flaming Youth " .
