The Eurydice Club was named after the goddess Eurydice, wife of Orpheus the Greek Patron of Musicians. The Club was organized by twelve charter members; five faculty and seven students. It was the group's purpose to promote music, in general, and to advance musicianship at the University and throughout the regional communities. These goals were accomplished through performances on campus and in the neighboring communities.
