THE GLEE CLUB
This club was organized shortly after the beginning of the fall term by Dr. Homer C. House, who had brought with him to Peru an ability in work of this kind born of years of experience in part singing. It may be said that the boys themselves were surprised at the rapidity with which they rounded into form and began to achieve the confidence and precision as well as the wide repertoire of an actual, established glee club.
The boys made their first public appearance in the mid-winter chorus concert in December, singing Buck's On the Sea. After the holidays rehearsals were pressed and dress suits purchased. The first out-of-town engagement was filled March 12, at Nemaha City, followed a few evenings later by the home concert in the Peru chapel. A fine audience was in attendance and made the singers happy by hearty applause and repeated encores.
It should be said that no small part of the success of these programs was due to the very excellent work of Miss Lena Larimer, the club's skilled accompanist.
The Glee Club hopes still to do a considerable amount of concert singing, both at home and in neighboring Nebraska towns, before commencement. And although considerable part of the present membership will be lost by graduation, there will remain next fall the nucleus of a superb organization to continue the work so auspiciously begun.
There is some very excellent material among this year’s club members, certain of the voices deserving special mention did space allow. I Iowcver, it is in the ensemble effects, the delicate blending, the spirited interpretation and execution of the club as a whole that gives their music the fine character that it has. The fun and piquancy of youth, the richness and buoyancy of student life, the charm of artistic sentiment, alike find expression in the songs which audiences arc 110 more pleased to hear than the singers delight to sing.
