Bio/Historical Note: Musical performance began at the University of Saskatchewan in October 1909 with the formation of the Literary Society of the College of Arts and Science, a student group which, together with debates and lectures, organized musical numbers and variety shows for student enjoyment. It has published a collection of College songs, trained its members to sing them in concert; concocted a College Yell, and has inaugurated what will be a most important event in the future, an Oratorical and Essay contest.
