The prospects of the Pierian Sodality this year, are very good, a large number of the old members having returned to College and the new material being fairly promising. It is hoped to have fifty men in the orchestra and twenty in the Glee Club. About twenty concerts in and about Boston, besides those usually given in Sanders Theatre, will be arranged during the year.
Dates have already been set for the following concerts: November 20, Zelland Lodge, Masonic Temple, Boston; December 12 and 16, Boston Art Club; January 12, Cochato Club, Braintree; January 15, St. John's Lodge, Masonic Temple, Boston; January 20, Colonial Club, Dorchester; March 23, Newton Club, Newton.
