Musical Clubs' Concert. Excellent Program Well Rendered by Both Organizations. Trinity Tripod, February 10, 1914

In the middle of winter, entertainment came in the form of a concert by the Glee Club and the Mandolin Club, followed by "dancing until midnight." The program was described in the Tripod:

"Excellent Program Well Rendered By Both Organizations. Last Saturday evening the combined musical clubs gave their annual Junior Week Concert in Alumni Hall. Both the glee and the mandolin selections were very good, and received a great deal of well deserved applause. "The Hawaian Melodies", given by the two clubs together, was one of the best numbers that has been rendered at Trinity in the last few years, and "De Coppah Moon" was also exceedingly good. The Instrumental Trio, with Martin and Moore, mandolins, and Little, '14, on the guitar, played all the latest "rags", and was enthusiastically received.

In soloists, the club was especially strong. Shelley, with his "Merry Bill, The Bo'sun Bold," made the hit of the evening, and W. B. Spofford was as popular as usual. C. B. Spofford and C. E. Craik were also in excellent voice.
