Administrative history

The Ladies Morning Musical Club was founded 17 November 1925 in Saint John, New Brunswick, and continued until February 1959. The club was created "for the mutual benefit and instructions of its members in vocal and instrumental music, to increase the interest and desire for the best music in the community and to promote sociability. For the giving of concerts and such purposes to engage the services of such professional musicians and artists… as instructors or to assist as instructors in public and private performances."

The club was open to all women who were willing to pay the $5.00 annual fee. It allowed visitors to meetings for $0.50. The musical club had an executive of 16 members and used a small orchestra for its meetings, which were held at one time at the Admiral Beatty Hotel. The club took an interest in promoting young musicians. It held Student Day Performances and was instrumental in the formation of the New Brunswick Festival of Music.
