y t A 1 ... A A Z«X K vA A A 4 4 4 4 44 4 W w The piano studio was ably handled by Winifred Hooke. of the Lecentiate Royal Academy. London, and a pupil of Richard Buhling. of Munich and Ber- lin. Her co-worker was Susan Howry of the Peabody conservatory and a pupil of Vorbereiter. Amandus Zoellner. known internationally for his work in the Zoellner quartette, has been teacher of violin on the faculty. Many interesting programs have been given throughout the year in the student chapel periods. Students themselves have participated frequently, bene- fiting by the opportunity for wider experience. The varied numbers and ex- cellent performances have been highly appreciated by the audiences. The Music Department has also presented a number of faculty and outside recitals during the past year. The first appearance af Amandus Zoellner. inter- nationally known as a concert artist, was a great pleasure. Miss Winifred Hooke. widely known as an advocate of genuine artistry, also presented several numbers. These recitals offered to the college and friends have added much to the musical wealth of the college life. After the program, many interesting, informal re- ceptions were held, thus affording the opportunity to meet the artist personally. The new department has also served the students and community by secur- ing a series of most inspiring presentations. The winter series, for which mem- bership tickets were sold at a very reasonable price included concerts by the Zoellner String Quartette. Calmon Luboviski and Claire Mellonino. Elinor Mario, contralto. Axel Simonson. cellist. Charles Wakefield Cadman and Mar- garet Messer Morris in concert, and various other programs. With the opportunities which the beautiful Greek bowl lends to the musi- cal atmosphere, and the rich field of Southern California from which to draw artists, the Music Department has great hopes for the future. Although it is in the first stages of growth, it promises to become one of the most important departments in the college. [ H8 ] AAAAAA44444

Walter E. Hartley Head of the Occidental Department of Mu« ' DEPARTMENT OF MUSIC A great addition has been made this year to Occidental ' s development in education. Less than a year ago. the Music Department came into existence. A few, brave, foresighted men launched the venture which promises to be one of the biggest assets to Occidental. For a long time there was felt the need of some definite organized movement for the advancement of music in the college. The Glee Clubs have filled a part of this need but with such a promising field in which to work there was a great opportunity for definite service. The college was particularly fortunate in securing Walter Earle Hartley to head the department. Professor Hartley received his A. B. from Yale University in 1908 and M. B. in 1910. He has also studied under Widor, Paris. At the present time he is president of the Fellow American Guild of Organists. Be- sides being one of the finest organists in the Southland. Professor Hartley is a teacher of great ability. This is evident by his recent success at Pomona Col- lege where he developed their Music Department very greatly during his short time there. The responsibility of this embryonic department rested mainly on his shoulders and the spectacular advancement which it has made in its brief ex- istence is due to his perseverance, patience and foresight. Professor Hartley is assisted by one of the finest groups of teachers to be found. The faculty consists of well known artists representing a high degree of perfection in their field. These teachers are capable of doing much credit to Occidental both in the class room and in recitals. Edith Hartley, well known soloist and teacher, has drawn many students for vocal lessons. She is a pupil of Grace Dudley Fenton. Chicago, and Herbert Linscott, New York. The college is fortunate in having a teacher of such rare ability as Mrs. Hartley. [ 147]
