Musical Entertainment, 1917

A concert review from the September 13, 1917 Skidmore News, page 1:

Musical Entertainment.

The musical program given last Thursday and Friday evenings by Mrs. Chas. Geyer’s music pupils was very good.

The program Thursday was held in the M. E. church by the advanced students.

The selections were well rendered. The second number on the progam was not given on account of the absence of Miss Hattie Linville. The program was as follows.

Piano Duet, Menuet, A L’Antique — Padderewski — Lucile Linville — Aleyene Smith
