College Band. Lebanon Valley College maintains a uniformed 
band, the membership of which is made up of college and conservatory 
students. The band contributes to college life by playing at football 
games, by appearing on several programs during the year and by pro- 
viding the musical accompaniment for the annual May Day Fete. 
Membership in the band is determined by an applicant's ability on his 
instrument and by the needs of the band with respect to maintaining a 
well-balanced instrumentation. 

Girls Band. This organization is open to girls of the Conserva- 
tory and College alike. Membership in this band is determined by the 
applicant's ability on her instrument, and by the needs of the band with 
respect to maintaining a well-balanced instrumentation. The group 
will participate in a Spring concert. 

Symphony Orchestra. The Lebanon Valley College Symphony Or- 
chestra is a musical organization of symphonic proportions. Open 
alike to advanced players from the college and the conservatory, the 
orchestra adheres to a high standard of performance. Throughout the 
school year a professional interpretation of a wide range of standard 
orchestral literature is insisted upon. 

College Orchestra. The College Orchestra is open to all members 
of the Conservatory and College who are sufficiently qualified to belong 
to this organization.

The personnel of the organization, while open to all L. V. C. students, 
is limited to fort}- members. During the Spring the club appears in 
concerts in several communities throughout this section of the state of 
Penna. Choral music of the highest type is used intensively.

The mixed chorus is open to all on the campus who are interested 
in this type of musical performance and who have had some experi- 
ence in singing.

zations there is further opportunity for advanced players to try out 
for such ensembles as

The College offers to students of exceptional merit the opportunity 
under careful guidance of arranging special electives either in work 
leading to the A.B. degree or the B.S. degree in M'usic Education 
(Public School Music), so that upon the attainment of either degree 
the subsequent degree can be earned by taking two or three semesters 
additional work. 

Music study may be credited toward the A.B. Degree to a total of 
twenty semester hours (five semester hours per year). For such credit 
the requirements are as follows : Two half hour recitations per week 
in Applied Music, two hours per day in practice, three hour recitations 
per week in harmony.

the examinations required by the Director of the Conservatory.

credit be granted by the faculty upon recommendation of the Director 
of the Conservatory.
