This chapter examines the developments in the career of Georges Barrère during the period from 1936 to 1940. During this period, Barrère was often on stage performing in concert tours to earn his own living and most of his activities were of a far more conservative nature aimed at a mass market of musical consumers. Because of his busy schedule, Barrère had neglected his institutional child, the New York Flute Club. He decided to file his resignation in 1940 but it was refused and he continued as president until his death.
