Music Supervisors' National Convention,
winch was held the week of April 12-17
at the Book-Cadalac Hotel of that city.
Mr. Miller re})orts that the convention
was a great success.
In giving his impressions of the con
vention he says: “The things that im
pressed me most about the convention
as a whole was the high type of people
interested in school music work.”
His greatest interest was centered on
the orchestra of high school pupils se
lected from schools from every state in
the Union. One player from Winston-
Salem re})resented Nortli Carolina. Some
states had as many as ten i)layers. The
orchestra numbered 210. Mr. Miller men
tioned the fact that there were twenty-
seven string basses in the orchestra. This
large orchestra was directed by J. E.
Maddy, a teacher of note and a writer
of music books, one of which is used
by the G. H. vS. Band. Mr. Miller stated
that the most impressive things about
this orchestra were the enthusiasm and
discipline. The orchestra practiced for
four hours each day, during which time
there was no disorder at all, no sound
except the playing of the instruments
and the speaking of the director. The
players were “lionized” by the people of
Detroit, nothing was too good for them.
Only numbers of the highest rank were
played by the orchestra, such as “The
Sym])hony No. 3” by Beetlioven.
“Among the delegates at the conven
tion were many peojile with whom it was
an inspiration to talk,” said Mr. Miller.
“Such prominent figures as J. F. Maddy,
Jay Fay, Father Finn, Will Earhart,
Howard Hanson, D. Thomas H. Briggs
f)f Columbia University and many others
were there." At the banquet Mr. Miller
sat next to Miss Alice Bivens, formerly
of N. C. C. W. now of Columbia Uni
One of the features of the convention
was a concert by the Class of Technical
High School Band and Orchestra, whose
director is Clarence Byrne. They played
a very difficult })rogram, the most diffi
cult of which was “Overture 1812” by
Tschaikowski, played by the band. On
the finale of the overture the lights were
dimmed and moving pictures of the bat
tle were shown. This band consisted
of eighty players, every one of them true
The Glee Club work demonstrated was
excellent. Again was shown the keen
interest and enthusiasm tliat cluiracter-
ized the instrumental work.
Mr. Miller said that every night about
eleven o'clock the supervisors all gather
ed in the lobby of the hotel and sang
community songs. Thursday night this
singing was broadcasted over the radio.
There was also an orchestra made up
of the supervisors. Russel Morgan di
rected this orchestra in a fine concert.
While in Detroit Mr. Miller heard twm
concerts by the Detroit Symphony Or
chestra. The feature of the second was
the playing of “The Second Concerto for
Fiano and Orchestra” by Rachmaninotf
with Director Gabrilowitsch at the piano.
