In 1906, the same year that Glendale became a city, a group of female musicians banded together in Los Angeles to support each other as they worked in the world of music. They called themselves "The Dominant Club" and now, as they celebrate their centennial, they are still hewing to their original purpose ? women supporting each other in the field of music. Their somewhat whimsical name is based on a comment made by a member of the Gamut Club, the men's group that sponsored them.
