Musical Clubs of the West.
(The Concert Goer. 1
It is a far cry from Iowa to California,
from the lakes of Minnesota to the
plains of Texas, yet scattered as our
clubs are, the same earnest spirit of en
deavor binds them in one. It ia hard to
believe now that this region was once
termed "wild and woolly," whn one
reads the letters from club secretaries
telling of work accomplished, ideals at
tained and still higher standards for the
future. It is simply an indication of
the resourcefulness of young communi
ties and the wonderful power of "those
As a whole, it is evident that the clubs
are not remaining satisfied with what
has been done; that broader plan for
the future are already taking shape;
that higher standards are maintained,
and, beet of all, that the result of the
work done k evident in the community.
"After years of patient pioneer work,
we have reached a point where the pub
lic is appreciative and does support us,
at least-it believes in ua.'' So writes a
club from Portland, Oregon, and the
same is true of many other places.
That individual members are not con
tend with present attainment is strongly
shown by the Schumann club of Cha
nute, Kansas, which reports one-fourth
of last year's membership away study
ing music, one of them in Germany.
The Treble Clef of Missouri Valley,
Iowa, tells of "a marked improvement
in the reception of good music by tbe
people, due partly, no doubt, to the club
and partly to the presence of at least
three ydung people who have studied
east and abroad and who will sing and
play only the good and true." This
club does serious and substantial work,
of which any club might be proud.
The Sherwood club of Tyler, Texas,
and the Monday Musicals of Anaconda,
Montana, are clubs about the same size
and seem to be meeting much the same
.problem., the cultivation of existing tal
ent and educating the taste of their
But the bravest little club is the one
at Wallace, Idaho. What do you sup
pose they are planning? To build a club
house. There's assurance for jou.
And truly western is the naive sugges
tion which, calls it "philanthropic work."
Cherokee, Iowa, does not appear to be
a musical place, yet its Tone Circle is
studying operas. Now it any of its
members should hear opera in Chicago,
they will' be able to listen and enjoy in
telligently. Fergus! Falls, Minnesota, must be a
charming place, for the people who live
there eeem to believe in it so thoroughly.
So it goes without saying that the
Schumann must be the club of clubs.
Though founded only three years ago,
the work has grown steadily and there
seems no diminution in interest and en
thusiasm. The Friday Musical club of Boulder,
Colorado, possesses a peculiar interest
because it is the club of the librarian of
the national federation. They aim in
their work to cultivate not only musical
but literary interest.
In Galveston, Texas, the Ladies' Mu
si fcal club follows "its by-laws strictly,
enforcing all rules and tines." What
other club of women can say the same?
There must be some strong power on
the throne or behind it, for all their
concert work is sung entirely without
music, which is lemarkable when one
considers that the chorus masters
twelve worke each year.
The Lincoln, Nebraska, Matiote Musi
cale sent six of its members to Topeka,
Kansas, in October to give a concert
for the Ladies' Music club of that place
in return for a similar courtesy the year
before. The Topeka club entertained
them so charmingly and the occasion
was made so wholly delightful that "one
who was there" wonders why the. other

clubs do not avail themselves of such
an opportunity for mutual helpfulness.
The Lincoln club gave a complimentary
concert-recently for the Young Women's
Christijra association. This and tbe
yearly giving of free Lenten concerts by
the musical club of Portland, Oregon,
are the most important strictly phiian
thropicjefTorts of the section.
Does it not seem appropriate that the
Spinet club, Redlands, California,
should study "early classical forms
leading, up to the sonata,,' and "The
Romantic school?" One almost fancies
the members must drees in stiff rustling
brocades with high ruffs and towering
headgear; it is a beautiful name, dis
tinctive as well aB suggestive.
Tbe shifting population of the cities
and villages of the west makes system
atic, consecutive work more difficult
than one) would at first imagine. For
this reason the Treble Clef club of Mis
soula, Montana, deserves the more
honor for "keeping alive the spark of
musicaL'desire," as its secretary so well
expresses it. This club was ably repre
sented at the congress of musical clubs
held in Chicago during the world's
The Tuesday Musical club of Le
Grande, Oregon, may well feel proud of
the fact that though one of the smaller
clubs, itrbas been the means of bringing
a numbir of artists to LeGrande and
has played no small part in educating
public sentiment musicall. '
The latest addition to the western
section k the-San Francisco Musical
club. A study of their programs re
minds one anew of the high standard of
intelligence and culture found on the
Pacific coast. There is the llavorof the
older civilization with tho spice of the
new. Some of the members of this club
who aro in the east studying hope to
affiliate with federated clubs there, a
practical advantage of the organization
by which many could benefit.
The Ladies' Musical club of Topeka,
Kansas, is the largest one in the group,
having a membership of four hundred
and fifty. It has been able to offer its
members Be Pachman and William
Shakspere, while the Tuesday Musical
club of Denver, Colorado, has heard
Mrs Seabury Ford, Max Heinrich and
his daughter Julia, and Leonora Jack
son. Miss Jackson has also played for
the Spokane, Washington, Matinee
Musicals. The Portland Ladies' Musi
cale and the Tacoma club secured Ros
enthal for one of its artists' recitals.
Distances in the west are so magnificent
that the smaller clubs feel that they
cannot afford such artists aB these. If
