The spring concert of the Glee Club, Banjo Club, Pierian Sodality, and Mandolin and Guitar Club last evening was a great success, although the program, with the numerous encores was a little too long. The Glee Club is better than it has been at the last few Sanders Theatre concerts. Most of the songs are new, but the new college songs are inferior to most of the ones the club has discarded. Fortunately the audience was treated to some of the best of the old ones very well sung by Messrs. Merrill, Howard, Honore and Shipped; and the rich voice of Mr. Swarts, '88, was heard in a solo with the quartette. These numbers were the favorites of the evening, though the audience was liberal in applause of all the efforts.
The Pierian played with more than ordinary snap and force. They are will under the control of the leader, and were fortunate in the selection of their pieces, which were chiefly dance music. Mr. Corne's "Fantasy" gave opportunity for the heavy effects of the full orchestra which were so successful a year ago. The audience was treated to the novelty of a 'cello solo by Mr. Wolff, whose splendid tone and technique won him an encore.
The Banjo Club was heard in new pieces entirely, and rivaled the successes of former years. They show the effect of very careful training. A new feature was the accompaniment by the Banjo Club of songs by the Glee Club. The introduction of a whistler was also an innovation, but not sufficiently successful to warrant its continuance. A very pleasing feature of the program was the number by the Guitar and Mandolin Club. It must be confessed that there is more music in their playing than in that of the Banjo Club, and the Spanish airs that they play are much more interesting.
There was dancing in Memorial Hall after the concert.
