with quality to spare
As years go, this was a banner year for Bentley's vocal
program. Directed by energetic Jerry Smith, several
groups proved on numerous occasions the power of the
human voice when properly trained.
Competitive tryouts filled the ranks of the Concert
Choir. ln addition, Mixed Chorus and Glee Clubs were
part of the curricular program.
Among the annual memorable events were Christmas
and Spring concerts, visits to the Junior High Schools,
league competition and participation in area and state
vocal competitions. Usually a choral student attends
National Music Camp's summer program.
Practicing for the Christmas Concert are singers Arlene
Gage, Nancy Silvey, Edwina Cummings, Carol Weighill,

Concert, when all Bentley's vocal groups massed on the
stage ibelowl for their part of the program. Several
members labovel dramatized "Frosty the Snowman."

Something new has been added this year: a Book
Club, sponsored by Mrs. Kyle. Students interested in
books and reading meet twice each month to discuss
the ideas tumbling around in their heads as a result
of their reading proiects.
