Skidmore Band Reorganized, 1899

From the March 31, 1899 Skidmore Standard:

Skidmore Band Reorganized

At a meeting held in Linville’s Hall, Tuesday night, it was decided to organize a band to be known as the Skidmore Military Band.

Another meeting was called for Wednesday night when the subject was further discussed and a set of officers elected.

There will be about twelve pieces in the band, and as Skidmore’s musical talent is second to none, you may expect much and not be disappointed.
