The Glee Club Quartet, a smaller performing unit of the Virginia Glee Club, first became part of the Club's programming as early as the late 1920s under Arthur Fickenscher, but came into its own in the 1930s under Harry Rogers Pratt. While the Glee Club itself originated as a small quartet or octet ensemble, from the 1880s on it was not until Pratt's years that the Club began to incorporate quartet singing regularly into its concerts.
During the late 1930s the quartet became known as the Tin Can Quartet.
