Historical Background

The Cecilian Club, organized in 1913, was named after St. Cecilia, patron saint of music and musicians. According to Club bylaws, the organization's objective was the "systematic study of music to stimulate individual effort and elevate the musical taste of the community." Active members were expected to be musicians, soloists, accompanists, or ensemble performers and met a quota for community performance assignments.
