Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 15, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 TH8 inHBRIDOt HEKAID Friday, May 15, 1970 JAMES MORAN Music Club Dormant The Lethbriclgc Music Club officially went dormant Ihis w e e k because of low at- tendance at its four yearly con- certs. The club, which focused its attention on bringing young musical artists to the p 11 b 1 i c eye, celebrated its 20lh anni- versary last year. An average of about 150 per- sons attended the concerts lliis year at the Yatcs Memorial Centre. Past-president Ursula Lewis reported that membership de- clined by 128 persons for the 1969-70 season. The club will retain a stand- ing executive which will each January review the organiza- tion's prospects. If no improve- ment in public interest is shown in four years, the club will ter- minate, Mrs. Lewis said. Other reasons tiled for the decision to go dormant, were: rising costs (particularly of ad- vci'foiiig) deepening oDcrul- ing costs, and the saturation of musical activities in the city. Other musical clubs in Lelh- briclge are: the University of Lethbridge Concert Series, Over- ture Concert Series and Lelli- bridge branch of the Alberta Registered Music Teachers' As- sociation. Mrs. Lewis said tile club tried to vary the nights of perform- ances, but prospective audience members "didn't want to com- mit themselves beforehand." She indicated interest had de- clined among young musicians for the club's yearly Young Artists' concert. The concert is to continue un- der the sponsorship of the uni- versity scries, until the music club becomes active upain. A meeting of all music groups in the city has been call- ed by the Allied Arts Council, of which the Lethbridge Music Club is a member. The meeting date has not been specified. It is expected to look into the overlapping of spheres of interest of the 'Clubs, and of the dates of their con- certs. The club will continue -to sponsor a ?100 scholarship, tha Lethbridge Music Club Rather- ine Brown Memorial Scholar- ship, for entrants in the Leth- bridge and District Riwams Music Festival. The standing executive com- prises: Marion Swanston, Letb- bridge; Thelma Caiman, vice- president; and Claudia Card, i secretary-treasurer.
