lift Qooc! Q7TITLQ There is an old adage that says, "Music is good to the melancholy, bad to those who mourn, and neither good, nor bad to the deaf." Never- theless, regardless of what mood we were in, even the most unmusical among us were com- pletely charmed by the harmonious renditions that were played by the Davis ORCHESTRA, un- der the direction of Mr. Nielsen. Davisites frequently had an opportunity to hear the orchestra in the weekly as- EA Q 'n semblies. Those ', lf M, xf who were privi- leged to attend the ,'-s 5 'rl.- M successful Davis musical, "Trial by Qi? jury," heard, in ff, addition to a bril- Q liant violin solo by Vera Halleman, or x 7 ,,-,V a delightful piano 5-Li, rtev pf-Ce by Bob Mil- ler, the orchestra playing some of its best cultural music. The epit- ome of the orchestral season was reached in the inspiring, spectacular Christmas assembly. How- ever, for some, the recessional music, played by the orchestra at the june graduation, was by far the most pleasant. At the sharp command of Mr. Nielsen, "Keep those drums quiet", the semi-weekly practice of the Davis orchestra would commence. With a shrill fanfare of trumpets accompanied by a solid drum-beat for an introduction, those musi- cal aspirants would begin to rehearse some en- trance or exit march. The musicians would fill in the remainder of their 45 minute time allot- ment, by working on overtures, other marches, "The Star-Spangled Banner," and "incidentals." Frequently, the student conductor, Davis's own high-stepping drum-majorette, Arlene Pruesse, took Mr. Nielsen's place on the podium and con- ducted the striving musicians. ln addition to be- ing the student-conductor, Arlene was the or- chestra's secretary. Other officers were Larry Tichenor, president, Sam Martley, vice-presi- dent, and Barbara West, librarian. ORCHESTRA Row l: A. Goldstein, R. Himmell, R. Miller, Row 2: Mr. Nielsen, E. Wolf, D.
