Music department


Music Department 
The music department of Evansville Junior College has made striding progress
this last year through the unflinching efforts of her teachers and the increasing
interest shown by the students. 
This department has been extremely fortunate this year in its selection of
teachers of the piano, Miss Dorothy Beecher, and Profes-sor Ralph Lorenzo
Warner. Miss Beecher, a woman of artictic talent and cheerful spirit, unfortunately
had to leave in the early part of the school year and it was then that Professor
Warner was secured. 
It was soon discovered by mugic students and laymen alike that the school
had procured a remarkable genius when it had secured the Professor. It may
be said to his credit that the school, although thus far favored in her selection
of musical faculty, have never secured a director whose artistic talents
have excelled those of Professor Warner. 
In like manner the choral department has vastly imprcqved under the excellent
tatlelage of Miss Shawvan, a woman of fine expression and extraordinary ability.
Many of the programs this year have been filled with excellent selections
from students of this department. Instrumental solos, piano duets, vocal
solos, duets and quartets have added immensely to the occasion and given
credit to their respective teachers. The appreciation which the public has
shown these programs has amply repaid them for their work. 
In conclusion we must say that the musical department has had an exceptionally
prosperous school year and her outlook for the future is even more cheerful.
