St. Mary's School of Music is proud to have three graduates, Shirley Maxwell and Joan Hendrick of St. Mary High School, and Marion Pratt of Arthur Hill. The graduation recital, presented June 1, showed their ability as soloists and in two-piano work in the performance of Beethoven's Concerto in G Major, the first piano parts being done alternately by Miss Hendrick and Miss Maxwell.

Miss Pratt, who is also a gifted soprano, offered several vocal selections. Mr. Ernest Eckerman, M. Mus., baritone, added to the program with several solos. The difficultly and variety of the numbers so effectively executed by the musicians showed the years of work which preceded the Graduation Recital performance.
