Savage Club Ladies Night

The "New Look" Savage Club Ladies' night proved to be a great success with all who attended when it was staged in the Army Hall recently.

Taking the form of a concert and dance, the occasion drew an exceptionally large crowd.

Highlight of the evening was the recital with the Savage Club orchestra of the talented young pianist, David James, who played his Auckland Competitions prize-winning solo, Mendelssohn's "Pianoforte Concerto in G Minor" (3rd movement).

During the dance, a floorshow was provided by the Savage Club Ballet Group, who performed a leggy routine fit to rival the Folies Bergere.
