This chapter begins by discussing the founding and development of the National Conservatory of Music in Manhattan by Jeannette Meyer-Thurber. It then talks about how the foundress attracted the Bohemian composer Antonín Dvořák as musical director. It also discusses Will Cook’s experiences as a student in that institution. It examines some of Cook’s musical composition such as “We’re Marching On”, “That’ll Be Alright Baby”, and “Love is the Tend’rest of Themes”. It adds that Will Cook began a compositional career and later discovered a new love—musical theater.
