Adrienne Rosenbaum MISS ALICE E. WHITEHOUSE Our purpose in this book is to capture in picture and word a jew of the more outstanding occurrences at the Conservatory during the last school year; the musical and the non-musical, the curricular and the extra-curricular, the pleasant and the not so pleasant. Our purpose is not so much to write a literary masterpiece as to chronicle those things which will stimulate, upon perusal in later years, happy memories of the year 1956-57 at the New Eng- land Conservatory. Although the Neume is designed with the Senior Class primarily in mind, we hope that we have included material of special interest to all of the classes. It was with these thoughts in mind that this volume was pre- pared. pie nxt tl|0 mu0 ic-mabcrs , nd nxt ii t dreamers of dreams, Pandering lone sea - breakers, nd sitting desolate streams. A. 0 Sbaugnessy The Music Makers tcatj Hiram Stanley Marsh With great pride and humility, the Class of 1957 dedicates its yearbook to Mr. Hiram Stanley Marsh. During our years here, Mr. Marsh has been an example and inspiration to us by the quiet and unassuming manner in which he has carried out his great responsibilities. Mr. Marsh is of fine old New England stock and was born on the fourteenth of August, in the year eighteen hundred seventy-five at the family home in Hudson, New Hampshire. One of Mr. Marsh ' s ancestors was a Captain in the Revolutionary War and is buried on the fami ly estate. Some may question the dedicating of this book to a person who is not known as a performing musician, but a look at Mr. Marsh ' s career will quickly dispell any reservations along that line. When he entered Harvard, there was no such thing as a music major; but he took all the music courses that were available to him. He graduated Magna Cum Laude in the class of 1897 and was elected to Phi Beta Kappa, Although not going into music as his vocation, he became or- ?anist at the Baptist and Congregational Churches in Winchester and later at the Congregational !hurch in Arlington. For the first three years after graduation from Harvard, Mr. Marsh worked at Butterick Pub- lishing Co., and from 1900 to 1947 for the Boston Woven Hose and Rubber Co. Since that time, he has been on the staff of the Conservatory. Mr. Marsh is devoted to his family which includes his wife, a son, a daughter and eight grand- children. He is very young in attitude, especially in his quest for new knowledge and informa- tion. As one acquaintance put it, " Mr. Marsh ' s hobby is looking up everything he doesn ' t know. " We salute this gentleman who, in his eighties, is still a constant, youthful example to all who know him. 9 Elaine Barry Bradford DeVos Treasurer Literary Editor James Young Photography Editor Adrienne Rosenbaum Art Editor Nancy Little Typing Editor Josephine Roman Advertising Editor ' Sabl of Contents ADtAINISTRATION FACULTY p. 73 SENIORS p. 25 CLASS PICTURES p. 55 PERFORtAING GROUPS p. 65 CLUBS ACTIVITIES p. 77 CLASS W LL p. 86 BRIGADOON p. 87 FACULTY LIST p. 91 PICTORIAL REV EW p. 92 ADVERTISEMENTS p. 96 12 To every member of the Class of 1957, 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 ail place great value.

After becoming acquainted with Conservatory policies, paying of bills, and settling class schedules, the newly organized Freshman Class busied itself with electing its officers for the year. Since the class had a limited treasury, careful thought had to be given to the social activities to be held for the year. A Valentine Dance was held and Joanne Bongiorno Montesanti was chosen Queen of the Dance. It was the only school dance held throughout the entire year with the excep- tion of the Snowball and the Strauss Ball which the Student Council sponsored. The Freshman Class decided that a reawakening of school spirit was necessary at the Conservatory: thus we set about preparing for the Spring Sing. Bill Hinds, our President, conducted " Dry Bones " with Elaine Barry, our Vice President accompanying. Next on our calendar was the election of officers for our Sophomore year. When everyone re- turned in the Fall, suntan and all, we felt quite important, since we were no longer Freshmen, but " upper classmen. " In October we held a Sports Clothes Dance. Brown Hall looked rather strange with a scarecrow standing in the center of the floor; surrounded with girls clad in Ber- muda shorts and boys in dungarees. Needless to say, it was different. Then February brought our Valentine ' s Dance which was a dressy affair. The hall was now transfixed into a room of red and white, and Dan Cupid was all around. Once again, we participated in the Spring Sing. Bev Mason conducted music of Leo Snyder who was our Faculty Advisor. Remember those mad hastles trying to get everyone together for a rehearsal? The only time the whole group was together was at the performance. Half of our formal education had now been completed, for we once more returned to school — this time as Juniors. We lost a few of the original members of our class but gained several new ones in. that year. The class went en masse to the Hayride sponsored by the Student Council. Oh! those wagons and broken down horses! Halloween found us looking " ghoulish " preparing for the Horror Hop. Several of us took part in " Good News " a musical comedy, directed by one of our own class members. We agreed to save all our money for a big bang-up banquet during the Senior year. We aged Seniors arrived on the scene, not quite believing it was our final year at N.E.C. With the loss of Jeanette Peniuk, our treasurer, we elected Bill Hinds to replace her. David Hicks became our Faculty Advisor. Committees were formed to start on the yearbook and to plan other activities. For two months, a large group of the class became inhabitants of a little village in Scotland known as " Brigadoon. " Soon after, the Music Eds. went to the M.E.N.C. Convention in Atlantic City (to meet Gray Squirrel). During Spring vacation, several of us went on the first Conserva- tory Chorus tour. Our Senior Banquet was held at the Terrace Room of the Hotel Statler. OFFICERS President Vice President William Hinds Elaine Barry Secretary Treasurer Student Council Rep.

Representing the faculty were Mrs. Leta Whitney and Mr. and Mrs. DeVaron. Several other activities, particularly the outing, were enthusiastically attended. Our class ad- visor for the year was Mr. Roland Nadeau.

A few of the more memorable events of the year weres a tour of Boston at the beginning of the year, the immediate " welcome " tendered by the upper classmen in a typical college manner. For one week, we " Frosh " participated in strange antics; but were finally honored at the Demerit Ball where we paid for our misdeeds and enjoyed an evening of entertainment and dancing. At the Freshman Class dance, Sandra Castaldo was chosen Freshman Queen. The next activity planned by our class is participation in the annual Spring Sing. I am sure much can be expected of the Class of 1960 in the future. 1st row: Johann Berry; Ann Boehm; Janice Wilson; Judith Greenberg; Signe Burke; Anne Maria Albanese; Vernice Van Ham; Judith Pfeiffer; Patricia Capone; Edwin Hustus; Patricia Slattery; Peggy Gibson; Phyllis Smith; Rosita Casanova; Grace Urrico; Caroleann Fischbeck. 2nd row: Roberta Shelman; Judith Walker; Arlene Zitowitz; Helen Waiko; DeAnne Lindstrom; Kay Gibson; Hope Canf ield; Mari lyn Allen; Florence Burke; Myrna Welch; Donna Murin; Georgianna Berry; Susan Lovegrove; Carol Demery; Carol Douglas; Yvette Capillon; Sandra Castaldo; Regina Bartolmucci; Suzanne Hammond; Joan O ' Neill; Violeta de la Mata; Harriet Weymouth. 3rd row: Alien Bacon; Bron Wickum; Vincent Cavalli; Gustavus Crowell; Herbert Baker; Raymond Dellovo; Joseph Darlington; Donald LeGrow; John Auzin; Vernon Colburn; Stephen Tabb; Lucien 01 ivier; Richard Loven; Fred Anderson; Edward Lombardi; Salvatore Caruso. 62 Ann A lba.116 s c 25 Grosvenar Ave,, Providence, R.

Through the untiring efforts of Lorna Cooke de Varon, the conductor, a great deal of work has been accomplished. Chorus is an unusual and a unique type of organization since it is made up of voice majors, music education majors and those who join voluntarily. The group policies are determined by the officers who are this year. Bob Cooper, President; George Collins, Vice President; Elaine Barry, Secretary; Nancy Snyder, Bob Carr and Bev Mason. All have been invaluable as sectional re- presentatives, coordinating the efforts of all members of the Chorus and giving many hours of their time to organize various activities. The annual Christmas Concert was given on December 4th in Jordan Hall. The program con- sisted of C.P.E. Bach ' s majestic work " The Magnificat " together with carols from different parts of the world. Immediately following the concert there was a dance party held in Brown Hall sponsored by Student Council. On December 21 and 22 the Chorus joined with the Boston Symphony Orchestra to perform " L ' Enfance du Christ " by Berlioz, under the baton of Charles Munch. We had the privilege of recording this work for R.C.A. Victor. During Spring vacation 40 members toured the New England States. In order to raise money for the tour. Kappa Gamma Psi allowed Chorus to use their room for cookie sales. Student Coun- cil also supported the tour. The Spring Concert, the Gardner Museum Concert, N.E.C. night at Pops and Commencement have kept the rehearsal schedule more than active. A word of thanks should be directed to Ed Low our Assistant Conductor and to Emily Fritzsche, our Accompanist, for helping us to become a sensitive unified organization of which all can be most proud.

Not present: Beverly Mason, 66 67 Cons trliat org ®rcl|Estra Observing a rehearsal of the New England Conservatory Orchestra, one is pleasantly sur- prised at the inspiration which radiates from Richard Burgin, conductor, through the orchestra to the audience. Striving relentlessly for the performance of music in the truest form of the art, Mr. Burgin impresses the members of the orchestra and all concerned with his fine musicianship and sense of perfection. Listening to or playing with the Conservatory Orchestra is a gratifying and rewarding musical experience. Richard Burgin, conductor of the Conservatory Orchestra, also is the concert master and as- sistant conductor of the Boston Symphony Orchestra. In the light of all his accomplishments, it is obvious that the Conservatory Orchestra is under the direction of a fine conductor. Throughout the year, the New England Conservatory Orchestra gives many concerts. The works performed by the orchestra range from Bach to symphonies in a very modern vein. This year, the orchestra and the Conservatory Chorus gave a combined concert on April 24 at which time they performed among other things " The Kid " by Carl McKinley, a member of the faculty. Popular wstc epartmtnt The Popular Music Department is evidence of the increasing interest in popular music at the Conservatory. Under the able direction of William Tesson, the Pop Orchestra performs in con- cert not only published manuscripts but the ' cool ' sounds of student arrangers. The Pop Hop started the year ' s activities and was followed by performances in Jordan Hall and Brown Hall. December of 1956 saw the beginning of a tradition— the Student Council voted that the Pop Or- chestra be the ' official ' music-maker for the Snow Ball. The Popular Music Department truly fulfills its objective to be a workship for the vocalists, instrumentalists, and arrangers of tomorrow.

Lambda Chapter of Sigma Alpha lota was installed at the New England Conservatory in 1915, twelve years after the founding of the women ' s music fraternity. Striving to promote the highest standards of musi- cianship, ethics and culture, SAI chapters are guided by seven annual National Objectives. Last year Lambda led the 105 college chapters across the coun- try, to win the 1956 College Chap- ter Achievement Award. This year Lambda gave two Jordan Hall concerts, one presenting faculty members, and the other a Lenten Choral Vesper Service, and also an American Music As- sembly. Three SAIs gave Mas- ter ' s recitals, and four gave sen- ior recitals. Among the " Sriga- doon " cast in February were Susan Day as Jeannie MacLaren, Elaine Barry as Meg Srockie, and Cece Hawkins as Jane Ash- ton. In Puccini ' s ' " La Rondine ' " in March, Geraldine Barretto had the title role of Magda, and Una Field sang Bianco. A fifty dol- lar scholarship was awarded to Eileen Paco. Lambda ' s honorary members include Amelita Galli-Curci, Polyna Stoska, Mildred Miller, Victoria de los Angeles, and Marian Anderson.

Each year Beta chapter gives awards such as scholarships to its members and a medal to an outstanding Freshman of the previous year, Emily Fritzsche being the most recent recipient. This year Mu Phi gave two Jordan Hall concerts, the first a choral program with original compositions by Lou Rodgers, Darius Lapinskas, Claude Hasbroucke, and Eric Stokes, the second by Lucille Monaghan and Frederick Jagel of the fac- ulty. (Many other social affairs such as cookie sales and parti- cipation in the Spring Sing were enthusiastically boosted. The 33rd National Convention of Mu Phi Epsilon was held last June at Rochester, New York, " Know Your Sorority " was its theme. Annette Guay Olivier and Corinne Curry were the busi- ness and music delegates from Beta Chapter. At this time the composition award of first prize was made to Lou Rodgers and her " Three Chinese Poems " were sung at the Convention Banq uet.

Jean Demos Mr. George Guilbault Elaine Barry Conventional - definitely not! This perhaps describes the Cape Codder ' s Club, an organiza- tion founded some years ago by George Guilbault. The group originally joined together practi- cally over night in order to sing a few light songs in the Spring Sing. The Cape Codders captured the second prize in the competition and thus formed a club, the purpose was to sing light music for sheer enjoyment, which we are still doing! In the fall of ' 55, the Cape Codders presented " Good News " , a musical comedy sponsored by the Alumni and the school. The proceeds went to the Scholarship Fund. ' ' Good News " resulted in an increase in membership for the organization, which is now limited to forty members. We are building up our library of good, light choral music, in preparation for concerts at Clubs and for various occasions. While being a Cape Codder is a great deal of fun, it still requires work in order to give a fine performance musically.

It was founded in October 1956 for the benefit of Music Therapy majors. However, membership in the club is available to all N.E.C. students who are interested in the subject of Music Therapy. The purpose of the Club is to provide a forum for mutual exchange of information regarding the theoretical as well as the practical aspects of working in institutions. The planned program in- cludes visits to different kinds of hospitals, schools for exceptional children, and penal institu- tions. Regular activities of the Club comprise film presentations, lectures, and reports by stu- dents about their experiences during clinical training. A bulletin is published at regular intervals listing forthcoming programs and reporting on the activities of the Club. In addition, the Music Therapy Club plans to establish its own archives consisting of students clinical reports, tape recordings of interviews with patients, and newspaper and magazine clippings relative to institutional service. The officers are: President Carlo Racamato Vice President Dorothea Robetin Treasurer Beverly Samons Recording Corres- Judith Greenberg ponding Secretary Arthur F, Fultz is Faculty Advisor to the Club.

The Conservatory Newman Club is part of the clubs on the " Fenway Circuit " and all the clubs in Boston are under the juris- diction of the Boston Province. Each year the Club plans a calendar of events, to aid us spiritually and socially. Spiritually there was the living rosary, days of recollection, and the Sunday evening services at Saint Anne ' s Church at which we sang. Socially there was the successful spaghetti supper, the annual outing to Scituate, two Recital Hall concerts, and a two hour program at Brandeis College in conjunction with the Student Art Festival. The Club is privileged to have the Reverend Edwin Kron for its chaplain. 1st row; Frances Brunnstrom; Grace Urrico; Bernard Borbeau; Father Kron; Aime Simoneau; Johan Berry; Eileen Pace. 2nd row: Regino Bartolomucci; Patricia Slattery; Prue Dugan; Yvette Capilion; Jean Pracher; Claire Durand; Rosaura Umpierre. 3rd row: Carlo Rocomato; Edward Bedner; Richard Beauregard; Joseph Roche; Julio Ruiz; Thomas Rotondo; William Goffney. 82 In its few short years of existence, the New England Conservatory Student Chapter of the M.E. N.C. has developed into one of the largest student groups in the school. The importance in which the M.E. N.C. holds its student chapters may be ascertained by the amount of material that is beamed toward the student both at the National Conventions and in the Journal, the official pub- lication of the M.E. N.C. To show the high regard in which the school holds this organization, it paid the transportation costs for all Seniors and Juniors who wished to attend the Atlantic City Convention. Under the able leadership of its officers, Ralph Farmer, Thomas Vasil, and Wilma Butcher, and the helpful guidance of Mrs. Whitney and Dr. Silverman, the organization has again this year striven toward its goal as stated in its motto " Music for every child and every child for music.

With the attendance well over two hundred, this affair was a huge success. At Christmas time, the annual party, complete with gift exchange, carol singing, and Santa Clous, was held in the living rooms. During exams, a " time-out-to-eat party " was held downstairs. Everyone was treated to all the cokes and sandwiches she could consume. A Spring Dance was held in the basement. Men from many Boston schools were invited to attend. Officers were Angie Rupert, president. Sue Martin, secretary. Blossom Lam, treasurer, Roberta Shelman, freshman representative to the Dorm. The House-mother is Mrs. Whitcomb; assistant housemother.

This could not have been accomplished without faculty and student interest and cooperation. A few of the highlights of the year were articles by Rose Sampton of the Metropolitan Opera, Roger Voisin of the Boston Symphony, Arthur Fultz, and Leiand Procter, both of the faculty.
