Princeton Glee Club Trip.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The Glee and Banjo club of Princeton returned from their annual western tour on April 20th. The trip was much more extended than those of previous years and despite the fact that it occurred during Lent, large audiences were the rule wherever the clubs appeared. The singing of the Glee club was extremely good and the daily papers gave most flattering accounts of their efforts. The Banjo club made a hit everywhere and seldom played a piece without being recalled. The reportoire of the clubs contained very little classical music, old college melodies and comic airs mainly composing the progarmmes. The following pieces, played and sung, by the clubs, illustrate the style of music which they adopted. "Old Nassan," "Daylight is on the sea," "Come Rally," "Mein Heer Van Dunck," "Catastrophe," "Dat Watermillion," "A Dainty Sweet Maiden is Mary," "Schneider's Band," "The Princeton Medley."

The clubs left New York at 10 p. m. on April 10 for Buffalo, arriving there at 1 p. m. the next day. They gave their first concert that evening before a small but enthusiastic audience, which constantly called for encores. The clubs next went to Detroit, where they received a cordial reception. They left on the next morning for Chicago, thence going in the following order: to Bloomington, Ill., St. Louis, Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, and Sewickley. Both Bloomington and Sewickley have never been visited by the clubs before, and though both are small towns, they did their best to give the men a good time. This trip is considered at Princeton as the most successful the clubs have ever taken.
