“Music is the inarticulate speech of the car. which cannot be compressed into words because it is so infinite."
The Nocturne Quartette, a new group formed this year under the stimulus of Christmas activities, has added a delightful new feature to the versatile musical organizations of the school.
Inspired by a mutual enthusiasm for ensemble playing, the members of the quartette prepared an extensive reportoire of classical chamber music. After gratifying success in two assembly programs, a series of city engagements followed. in which the quartette made a splendid impression and elicited much praise.
The debut concert of the quartette was given at Christ Lutheran Church before a large and appreciative audience. An interesting program, which excelled in variety, was presented, including not only quartette numbers, but also ducts, trios, and solos by each member of the group.
Other programs were given at the First Presbyterian Church, the First Con-gregationalist Church, the Oshkosh Women’s Club. Lions’ Club. I). A. R.. and business Women’s Club. The quartette plans to give several concerts in nearby cities later on.
.So. although this organization was formed late in the year, it has already made an enviable record, and it is to be ho] cd that the Nocturne Quartette will become like the older musical organizations, a tradition of (). N. S.

SENOIR MALE QUARTETTE

“.Music should strike tire from the heart of man. and bring tears from the eyes of woman." —Beethoven.
As we look back over the splendid records that have been made in the last few years, there is no organization that we point to with greater pride than our Normal School Quartette. It is seldom indeed that a school the size of Oshkosh Normal can boast of a musical organization that can even approach the work of these four songsters.
The hovs have been working together for two years and during this time the programs given by both the Band and (dec Club have largely centered around their work. This year all four members of the quartette played in the band and this combination proved very effective at Superior, where shkosh was conceded the honors in the field of entertainments.
The past year has been a very active one for the quartette. In addition to the Band and the Glee Club it has made many public api earances as a separate organization. A number of concerts have been given in cities all over the state, such as Kenosha. Fond du Lac. Menasha. and Stevens Point. Lverywhere the boys have l een well received.
The programs given by the Quartette arc exceptional because of the extreme variety of the songs rendered, running all the way from the frankly comic type of music to that of a religious and a classical nature. All the boys are soloists of unusual ability, a fact that adds much to the strength of the organization.
We shall be sorry to lose an organization that has done so much for the activities of the school. May each of its memliers meet with even greater success in the future.
