Lovely Lasses with Songs in Their Hearts A girls' chorus-in line-stepped onto the stage for a performance. Arranged on an elevated platform, the bright, smiling faces of fifty-six girls induced the audience to sit back in their seats for an evening of music. Dressed uniformly in black skirts and white blouses, the choristers presented a delightful program of well-known Fred Waring arrangements. This choir, organized by Miss Nora Bryant, a. newcomer to the city, was the newest ad- dition to the musical family at H.P.H.S. Besides preparing music for school assemblies and community programs, these vocalists work diligently to condition themselves for the spring state music contest. Thus the girls' chorus completed their lirst year with great success, hoping to make this group a permanent organization at H.P.H.S. Attempting to lead these musical gals are their oflicers, left to right: Betty Brewer, librariang Miss Bryant, director, Darlene Jenkins, accompanist, Peggy Sam- uels, president, Phyllis Surrett, treasurer 5 Becky Sechrest, secretary, and .Io Ann Mason, vice-president.

' The year of the widespread popularity of the hillbilly song "Goodnight Irenen was also a popular year for students to seek member- ship in the A Cappella choir. Dr. Charles C. Taylor, who was beginning his first year at as head of the music department, found an impatient group of students clamoring to begin vocal work Outs. Once organized, choir activities consisted of presenting programs of sacred music to the student body and making numerous public appearances before church congregations and civic groups. One of the most anticipated events of the year was the All-State Chorus Festival in Greensboro. Music students from every section of North Carolina assembled for two days of rehearsal and as a climax of the program pre- sented a formal concert in Aycock Auditor- ium. The oilicers who keep things rolling in the A Cappella Choir are, ld! to right: Bill Wright, vice-president, Dr. Taylor, director, Jack Peacock, librarian, Anita Byrum, secretary 3 Buddy Bullock, president, and Harold Gibhardt, treasurer.

An one hundred and fifty voice chorus com- posed of students and alumni of H.P.H.S. was arranged on the stage to form a white cross on a blue background. This sixth annual pre- sentation was directed by Dr. Charles C. Taylor. Months before December 9th and 1Uth the chorus participants spent long afternoons and evenings of continuous practicing and drilling the diflicult musical passages. Student com- mittees wcre formed to make arrangements for the distribution ol' robes and tickets, the planning of stage decorations, and scheduling rehearsals. The addition ol' the beautiful "His Yoke Is Easyu increased the number of choruses sung this year to eleven. High Point High School is one ol' the few choral groups in the nation who has established a tradition of presenting the .7l1l'.Y.Y1'fIfI frorn memory. 116
