Making Music For 130 Years

The Original Music Students Club traces its roots to 1883 in Davenport. Talented musicians and singers would meet in members' homes to perform. It is the oldest music club in Iowa.

Recently, some of the current members of the club put on quite a performance at Martha Jirus' home in Davenport.

Stephanie Raphael  Nakos  played O Come, O Come Emmanuel on the harp. She says the sound is soothing and creates a sense of beauty. She has played the harp for four years.  

Vincent Briley is a wonderful singer. He has performed professionally and sang Ave Maria with passion and reverence.

Helen Stahl and Lora Beth Huggins both played piano solos.  They have been members of the Original Music Students Club for several years.

Lora Beth says the club has an impressive track record in a day and age when things come and go so quickly.

The club has twelve active members and usually meets the third Monday of the month at 12:30pm.

It is the oldest Federated Music Club in the state of Iowa.
