THE LADIES MUSICAL CLUB: A ‘REAL MEAT AND POTATOES’ ORGANIZATION
From The Woodinville Weekly; 13 Feb 2018; Written by Kirsten Abel
The Ladies Musical Club of Seattle has a quaint-sounding name.
“You immediately see hats and gloves and teacups and so on,” said Dorene Kenkman, a Carnation resident and a former Ladies Musical Club president.
But the club—organization might be a better word for it—is anything but quaint. “This is something that’s got real meat and potatoes to it and it’s been going for over 100 years,” Kenkman said.
Ellen Bartlett Bacon, along with several other women, launched the organization out of her Seattle house in 1891. According to the Ladies Musical Club website, the group was dedicated to “developing the musical talent of its members, and stimulating musical interest in Seattle.”
