The American Glee Club, under the direction of Lancelot Bufton, has won for itself a most enviable position among the leading novelty quartets of the country. Mr. Bufton has been before the public for many years in quartet work, and for the past four seasons has been directing his own organization. He is a graduate of the Lyceum Arts Conservatory, Chicago, and he has also studied at the American Conservatory in Chicago, and also at the Chicago Musical College. He is a vocal pupil of Oscar Saenger of New York.
Mr. Evard Servass, first tenor, has a voice of very pleasing timbre. He has enjoyed extensive recital work as well as a long experience with leading quartet organizations of the company. He is also a saxophone player of marked ability.
Mr. Homer Wright is the baritone of the American Glee Club. He, too, is an extremely versatile musician. In addition to his vocal work he is the piano so oist and accompanist for the group, plays the saxophone and is the featured soloist on the banjo.
Mr. Anthony Dworak is the basso and in addition plays the saxophone. He is a student of Professor Kirkpatrick at the University of Nebraska and has had wide quartet experience.
The program is full of interesting musical features and these clever young artists through their varied instrumentation get some fine effects. The bell ringing is always an interesting departure and takes well with audiences everywhere. The xylophone ensemble work is in itself very clever.
Mr. Bufton, director and second tenor, is the leader of the group and his work also shows marked achievement along dramatic lines. A saxophone quartet also adds variety to this unusual and extremely versatile program.
