By doing so, we hope to help the propagation of Choral Societies around the country…We believe that students will respond favorably to this artistic and charitable effort. These informal gatherings will lead to more sophisticated artistic events. We would like to launch a big musical campaign, that could appeal to all those who care about music and about the progress of the fine arts."
