The Matinee Musicals, now entering
upon its eighth season, has attained
such a growth and become such an im
portant factor in all musical affaire in
the community that a brief resume of
its history may not be wilboat interest.
For some time before its organization
the need of such a club had been deeply
felt, eo that when in June of 1894 such
recognized musical leaders as Mrs. D.
A. Campbell, Mrs. J. W. Winger and
Mies Marie Hoover issued a call for a
meeting in Curtice Music Hall for the
purpose of considering the formation of
a musical society, a cordial interest was
felt and about twenty-five of Lincoln's
representative musical women respond
ed. All manifested great enthusiasm,
and steps were bt once taken toward
the organization of the club. Within
two weeks a constitution was adopted,
officers elected and committees appoint
ed. The first regular meeting was .held
on the first Monday of October, 1894,
at Curtice Music Hall, which was the
home of the club during the first two
years of its existence.
From the beginning, the aim of the
Matinee Musicale was to present only
such programs as would be of interest
and benefit to all members, and the out
lines of work accomplished show great
care and thought in their preparation.
The various great composers, taken in
chronological order, occupied the first
two years of study. The third year the
different nationalities, with their con
trasting schools of composition, were
presented. The fourth year offered at
tractively musical forms. Instructive
and interesting papers from time to
time accompanied the programs and
added much to their worth. In the
fifth, sixth and seventh years the pro
grams departsd from any fixed charac
teristic as a whole, becoming more mis
cellaneous in style, each subject chosen,
however, being fully illustrated by the
music. While, perhaps, not affording
such deep research in the study of mu
sic as an art, these programs have
charmed by their variety and contrast.
Early in the history of the club the
desirability of an associate membership
was recognized, and a number of the
musical amateurs of the city became
identified with the organization in this
capacity. The associate membership
has steadily increased, new names be
ing added to the roll each year until it
now approximates one hundred. The
associates share all the musical and
social pi.Tilegee of the club without be
ing called upon to assist in the rendi
tion of the programs.
The chorus organization has become
one of the important features of the
Matinee Musicals, great care and effort
having been bestowed on this branch of
the work, especially during the last
three years. With the talent available
and under the directed efforts of Mrs. P.
Y. M. Raymond, who has had the cho
rus under her personal supervision, part
songs, cantatas and other choral works
of considerable musical pretension and
worth have from time to time been pre
sented with excellent effect, adding
much to the interest in the entertain
ments. The first four seasons of the club
terminated annually with a "May Fes
tival" consisting of a series of programs
given on consecutive days. In these
concerts the efforts of the local club
were augmented by the cooperation of
musical societies hailing from various
outside communities. Professional art
ists were also engaged to appear on
these gala occasions, Among others
who have contributed to the success of
the May Festivals may be mentioned
such celebrities as Ellen Beach Yaw,
Maximilian Dick, Mary Louise Clary,
Stella Hadden-Alexander, Bruno-Stein-del,
Mrs. Steindel, Edward Uchnecker,
Minnie Fish Griffin and Mildred Weber.
In later years, however, the festival
idea has been replaced by a series of
"Artist Recitals" given at stated inter
vals during the club year. The aim of
the managers has been to Becure the
beet possible talent in the professional
world of music that the finances would
permit. Some exceptionally choice en
tertainments of this character have
been given which include the Topeka
Ladies' Quartette, Max Heinrich, the
Persian Garden Quartette, Miss Mor
rill, Mrs. Weakley, Mr. Gareissen and
the Leonora Jackson Concert Company.
Mr. Henry Eames and Mr. John Ran
dolph of the University School of Music
have entertained the club with interest
ing and instructive lectures on musical
subjects, and Mrs. Joseph Wurzburg
has also favored the ladies with a choice
Schubert program in which an enter
taining talk and musical illustrations
from that greatest of German song
writers were charmingly interwoven.
The business of the club is managed
by an executive board consisting of the
president, secretary, corresponding sec
retary, treasurer, auditor, librarian,
elective members from both the active
and associate lists and the chairmen of
standing committees. The first presi
dent was Mrs. D. A. Campbell, who
served three terms. She was succeeded
in the following order by Mrs. A. W. !
Jansen, Mrs. J. W. Winger, Mrs. A. S
Raymond, Mrs. E. Lewis Baker and
Mrs. D. M. Butler. These ladies have
each served one term, an amendment to
the constitution having been made pro
viding that no member shall hold the
office twice consecutively. Next to the
executive department the most import
ant part of club work is the preparation
of the year's outline of work and the
arrangement of the programs, and on
the chairman of the Program Commit
tee much responsibility must alwajs
rest. This committee has been presided
over by Mrs. Winger, Mrs. Jansen, Mies
Annie L. Miller, Mrs. Baker, Mrs.
Campbell, Mies Ella Givens and Mies
Mary Smith, in the order named.
Interest in the club has continued
unabated since its inception and or
ganization and its active membership
has been up to the constitutional limit,
with numerous applicants constantly
on the "waiting list." It commences-
the season of 1901-1902 under the most
auspicious circumstances and the out
look for the year is decidedly encourag
ing both from a business and artistic
