A Brief History of the Music and Drama Club

The Music and Drama Club was formed by 22 Painesville women in 1923. Originally all members had performance capabilities and most performances were done by members at Lake Erie College facilities. Currently only a few members have performance level skills and most of our six programs a year are by guest artists. Meetings of the sixty membership group are held in and around the Painesville-Mentor area.

Since 1931 we have provided a yearly scholarship to a deserving Lake Erie College student of music or drama. In addition since 1961 we have given summer music camp scholarships to local high school students. Currently we are providing three such awards, one each to a Fairport Harding student, a Harvey student, and a Riverside student to the Lakeland Summer Jazz Camp.


Membership is open to any woman who appreciates music and drama. Prospective members are required to attend two meetings so they understand the nature of the club. Then, a current member writes a recommendation, and the Board votes for acceptance. Dues are $25/year.
