Program for a "Southern Evening" recital by the students of St. Cecilia Academy, Nashville, Tennessee, from circa 1906. St. Cecilia Academy is a Roman Catholic high school for girls in Nashville, Tennessee, founded in 1860 by the Dominican Sisters of St. Cecilia Congregation. During its early years, St. Cecilia Academy was a boarding school on a hill in North Nashville known as Mount Vernon Gardens. Music and art were important areas of emphasis from the outset and early courses of study included painting, sculpture, pottery, piano and harp along with core courses in math, science, history, English and religion. In 1957, St. Cecilia Academy moved to Harding Pike and no longer accepted boarders.
