The 1923-1924 Catalogue of Westbrook Seminary reads: "It has not needed the tragic times through which we as a nation have passed, to bring us to a realization that music is a civic force rather than an adjunct in our daily life. Music, the universal language, caries its message of inspiration and beauty, not for the few nor for the specially gifted, but for every young man and woman seeking largeness and intensity in human experience. . . . The Real Issue is enriching the daily life of the individual, and through him reaching the heart of the home and the community."
