Program for 4 days of Violin Recitals by pupils of A. Stanley Cayting, Bangor Maine
Undated program for several days of Violin Recitals given by pupils of A. Stanley Cayting. The recitals were held at the Symphony Building, 166 Union Street, May 27 and 28 and June 3 and 4, at 8 o'clock, at Bangor, Maine. I looked online for a birth date for one of the students - Fernald Richards - and found he was born in 1901. I'm guessing the recitals took place around the 1930s.
I found A. Stanley Cayting at Bangor in 1910 and 1930. He appears to have been in Manhattan for the 1920 Census, perhaps at a music academy. On the 1930 Census, he indicated he was a musician with his own studio.
Names of the students on the program:
Mary Hayes Hayford (accompanist)
Irving Grodinsky & Hyman Emple [perhaps Irvine & Irving are same person, with one a misprint?]
Eugene H. Rice
It's amazing to think that Bangor once had a violin school of this magnitude!
Hopefully this memento will hold some significance for you - thanks for stopping by!
