Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Combined Musical Clubs
- Existence: 1908 - 1986
In 1890, the Glee Club, Banjo Club, and Mandolin Club joined to create the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Combined Musical Clubs. Each club retained its own leader and manager, but was under the control of the association. In 1892, the organization changed its name to the Technology Glee and Banjo Clubs, and in 1894 changed again to the Technology Glee, Banjo, and Mandolin Clubs. The association was dormant for two years, but was reborn as Musical Clubs. The group dissolved once again, only to reappear in 1908 as the Combined Musical Clubs, an umbrella organization for undergraduate band and choral groups at the Institute. Combined Musical Clubs persisted as an umbrella heading for MIT's musical groups until 1986.
