Girls’ Glee Rocky Organization For Sweet Singers Junior and Senior girls who enjoyed singing found Rock Island High School’s Girls ' Glee a wonderful opportunity to improve their vocal talents. The girls were trained by their director, Murray Osborn, in the skills of both understanding of and training in phonetics, the reading of musical notes, the study of rhythm and its relation to singing, and breath control, a most important aspect of singing. The Girls’ Glee practiced these basic skills so that they could be applied with perfection to their songs. Appropriate songs were selected for the various pro¬ grams put on by Girls’ Glee, and the girls then put in many long hours learning tunes and memorizing words, always remembering the basic skills. The songs were then practiced and re-practiced until it was felt the girls had truly mastered their music. These girls found the reward for their work in the programs they performed for Rocky and the community as a whole. At the exchange assemblies, the Girls’ Glee had an opportunity to display their talents. In addition, Rocky’s student body heard the Girls’ Glee at their annual Christmas Concert and Spring Concert. The Girls’ Glee joined the Senior Glee in caroling during the Christmas season. This custom at Rocky consisted of the two groups, acting as a whole, caroling through the halls bringing the sound of Christmas carols to all Rocky students.
