How much you can accomplish depends very much on your aspirations. Aspirations come largely from inspira- tions and inspirations come from without much more than from within-chiefly from associations with successful people and their works or from great books, great paint- ings, or great music. You, for whom this 'article is written, are fortunate to have come in contact with your musical director, for it is he who has given the inspiration for the development of the fine musical organization of which you are a member. It was not intended that we should rest in contentment with each success, but that each new success bring forth new hopes and aspirations. Each of us should hold our principles and our aspirations as clear as life itself for life without inspirations and aspirations cn only be dull and unsuccessful. One of the saddest situations facing the world today is the fact that so many seem to be satisfied with the mediocre. No satisfied person ever succeeded. Therefore, it behooves us to be displeased with what we are and what we do, for when we have pleased ourselves, we will certainly progress no further. It is perfectly all right to be quite content until it is time to rise. In other words, be proud of accomplishments, but never satisfied with the present status and never ready to give up longing and wishing. Yet, we are to keep in mind that we are not to let contentment and aspiration conflict to the point of making us miserable. Our prayer should be "Let me lift myself above the average for the average is too low to bring much success." The things for which you aspire are within your reach if only you want them enough to pay the required price. You can climb the summits, but you cannot dwell there, you must go on-up and up or surely down. Develop a purpose in life, secure inspiration from every available source, and then throw your every resource into the development of that purpose. Aim for perfection in everything that you do even though in most instances per- fection is unattainable. Yet in so aiming and constantly striving you will come closer to perfection than those who never aspire to attain it. You cannot measure your life, but you can resolve to put your life to its noblest and best use, remembering always that life has nothing good and high in store for those who do not aim at the good and the high and that one is not exalted because of what he has accomplished, but rather by what he aspires to ac- complish. D ICAT1 99 O LOCKPORT TOWNSHIP HIGH SCHOOL BAND LOCKPORT, ILLINOIS The 1958 Edition of FIRST CHAIR OF AMERICA is dedi cated to The Lockport High School Band and to its director Ernest O. Caneva, because they have set a standard in perform ance which raises the dignity of the music programs in the nation's schools. ..- V 'if- I' ' -r '.

Caneva, is recognized as one of the most outstanding musical organizations of the nation. Since 1934 it has consistently won honors in every contest it has entered-district, state, national, and international. The band has been awarded the Governor's Trophy at the Illinois State Fair six times and has placed first seven times at the Chicago Tournament of Music. It has also gained permanent possession of the Bowman Dairy Trophy by winning first place three consecutive years at Harvard, Illinois Milk Festival. Two Admiral Trophies have also been awarded to the band through competition at Harvard. In 1953 the band participated in the Holland, Michigan Tulip Festival as a guest band and was invited back in LOCKPORT, Lockport has a population of about 6,000 and is highly industrialized-mainly by such companies as the Texas Company, Pure Oil Company, and Steel Companies. In the last five years the Lockport High School has grown to an enrollment of 1,100 studets. Seven public grade schools, two parochial schools, and the Lockport High School provide a fine education for the youngsters in the community. Each grade school has its own band and music department, developed over a long 1954. In 1940 the band played at the New York World's Fair and received a parchment and plaque and on the same trip gave an outstanding concert on Constitutional Avenue in Washington, D. C. The band participated in the Lions International Parade in Atlantic City, New jersey, in 1952 and received second place in competition with sixty-four bands. In 1953 the band again entered Inter- national Lions Competition in Chicago and tied for first place with the Joliet Township High School Band. The band was declared state champions in 1939, 1941, 1946, 1947, and 1949. It was chosen as one of nine outstanding bands in the nation to perform in concert at the 11th Annual Mid-West National Band Clinic in Chicago where it brought the four-day clinic to a brilliant close on Decem- ber 21, 1957. ILLINOIS program of twenty-four years. Then band rooms in some of the schools are of the finest in the state. The Lockport High School has one of the finest band rooms in the country with facilities including practice rooms, built-in risers, etc. adequate for at least 150 students. The program is completely financed by the Board of Education, but help in raising money is also provided by the Band Boosters Organization made up of parents and friends of the band.

ENZ, Superinten- 5 LOCKPORT SCHOOL ADMINISTRATION STATEMENT It is my belief that "Education is life itself, and that school is not merely preparation for life." That each day as the student goes about his work in the school, at home, in music, in athletics, in community activities, or at a part- time job after school hours, he is a living and active member of society. Education is, therefore, a combination of living, learning, and doing. It comes from both books and other experiences. Music is an integral part of this combination. It serves the school and the community by making it possible for all to participate through our bands, orchestras, and chorus- es thus helping to lift the cultural level of our society. We deeply appreciate what contributions are made by musicians, teachers, conductors, and others active in the area of music, for they give so much to each of us. DR. WILLIAM H. BLATNIK Superintendent Lockport Township High School Dr. Blatnik received his Master's and his Doctor's degrees from the Univer- sity of Illinois and his B.Ed. degree from Illinois State Normal University.

CANEVA AND CO-WORKERS Mr. Caneva has been the director of the Lockport Township High School Band since 1932. Starting with a 22-piece band, he has developed it into the 150-member organization. Mr. Caneva has studied in Europe, North- western University, Vandercook College of Music, and other places too numerous to mention. Recently he made a trip to Venice, Italy, and there he worked with a famous band. Mr. Caneva is well known throughout the country as a composer of a large number of musical selections. He has been guest conductor on many occasions, is a charter member of the A.S.B.D.A., honorary member of the N.C.B.A., and adjudicator of many contests and festivals.

V A . f . u . , THE PARADE OF STATES Over a period of nineteen years, FIRST CHAIR OF AMERICA has gathered much information regarding the school music organi- zations, bands, orchestras, and choruses in the schools of the various states. Many First Chair members along with their directors and organizations have been honored through this medium of national recognition. It was planned to present a page for each state in the 1958 edition, but it now appears better to present this section as "The Parade of States" in which appears many of the directors who are upholding the highest standards and who believe in honoring their First Chair members with the recognition which they so richly deserve. We know that some who should appear here are not listed, but we were unable to get their pictures and stories. The superb "Twentieth Anniversary" edition 1959 of FIRST CHAIR OF AMERICA falmost completely reserved at this timej will present the one hundred and fifty very top high school organizations of Arnerica's schools. We expect to make it a Success Story-a success story of the boys and girls who hold the First Chair positions in America's top high school musical organizations and the directors who are responsible for their success, because next to success is the appreciation of it. The person who succeeds above the others is the one, who, early in life, clearly discerns his object and toward that purpose habitually directs his powers-realizing at all times that the greatest results in life are attained by simple means and by the exercise of ordinary qualities. The difference between failure and success is doing a thing nearly right and doing it exactly right. Those who have succeeded deserve honor, for without honor for recognitionj success in the world would be small indeed. ROY C.

Pylman, Jr.g and at Eunice, Oren NEW YORK Early music festivals in New York State were sponsored by the National Bureau for the Advancement of Music. In 1952 the New York State School Band and Orchestra Association was founded. A few years later this was expanded to include choral music and the organization became known as the New York State School Music Association. At the present time the N.Y.S.S.M.A. is the largest of the state units of the Music Educators' National Conference. The number of student members found in college chapters exceeds 1000, In all, there are some 4000 music educators in the N.Y.S.S.M. program. In 1940, a program based on "ability to perform" was presented by Elvin L. Freeman and a committee of music teachers. This is the working formula under which N.Y.S.S.M.A. festivals are conducted today. The N.Y.S.S.M.A. provides a manual containing graded material for all major organizations, smaller ensembles, and each instrument and voice classification. Directors fand studentsj are requested to select music from a grade in which they may do their best work-Range-Grade: 1 QVery 38 Easyj to Grade 6 fVery Difficultj. Auditions are conducted in some 20 areas of the state in under N.Y.S.S.M.A. supervision. As the State Music Asso is chartered under the Board of Regents of the State of York Qbelieved to be the first such state unit to be so nizedj the question of time lost from school to attend fc is quite generally answered. Adjudicators, skilled in judging and appointed by the Exe Council of the N.Y.S.S.M.A., conduct the various aud Ratings are given on the basis of A to D-with A being highest rating. An "Ao" rating represents the best perfor in the highest grade of music. In 1957 there were more than 50,000 students participating the festivals. Up to this time students from New York City Buffalo, and a few of the larger school systems have not par ticipated. About one third of the entries received "A" r representing a very fine performance in the grade of music their own selection.

The DeWitt Community Schools Band is gaining a reputa- tion as "concert band" in the purest sense. Although the band participates in the usual football shows, conference festivals, etc., their annual Wilmter and Spring concerts stand out as examples of what a high school band can do with good music. Each year the band performs some of the most difficult transcriptions from the orchestra repertoire, in addition to the contemporary original works for band, and it is in this realm that the band excels. The organization is also getting a reputation as :1 contest group, especially on the solo and the ensemble level. Each year the school enters twelve ensembles in the State Music Contest series. Three years ago seven of the twelve won firstg two years ago nine of the twelve won first, and last year the school made a clean sweep with all twelve of the ensembles entered winning a First Division rating. two years in Rock Island Public Schoolsg Director of Bancl at DeXXfitt eight yearsg in tenth year as member of French Horn Section of Tri-City Symphony Orchestra and has played with Clinton and Cedar Rapids Symphoniesg has judged in state con- tests for both Iowa and Illinoisg is frequently called upon as guest conductor at clinics, also as horn clinician: has directetl church choir and community chorusg one year as special instructor in Brass Instruments at University of Dubuque1 member of Iowa Bandmasters' Association: on Band Review Staff of the "School Musicianng maintains studio in Davenport.

No points are given for selling tickets to concerts. attending rehearsals. being on time, etc. Witlu this type of system the best performers have the most points, llml vice versa, the students with the most points are the best performers. The highest rank that can he attained is the rank of General, and the generals are singled out by the fact that they wear the more elaborate citation cord.

PETERSON, D21-at-mr Dedication The Belt "Golden Husky" Band under the leadership of Edward L. Peterson has made outstanding achievements in the past five years and has earned the reputation as one of the finest concert bands in the state. The band presents three or more concerts each year and plays for all home football and basketball games. Halftime shows are presented at several of the basketball games. Ensembles and solos play an important part in the band's program. These groups meet before school and at noon hour. A fifteen-piece dance band, "The Moonlightersf' plays for the school dances and for one "Pop'l Concert. Among the important trips that the "Golden Husky" Band has taken is the International Band Contest at Moose Jaw, Sask., Canada, at which time the band was chosen as the top United States band in its class. The band were guests 2. at the Montana State Capital in February 1957 and per- formed for a joint session of the I-louse of Representatives and the Senate. Following their performance they were acclaimed as one of the most outstanding groups to have appeared. They have also entertained the veterans at Fort Harrison Hospital in Helena. This year the guest soloist of the "Golden Husky" Band will be Mr. Randall Spicer from the State College of Wfashington. This will be the first appearance of Mr. Spicer in Montana as a guest soloist. Much of the success of the group is due to the cooperation of the Band Boosters Club. Belt Valley High School enroll- ment is 105 students. EDWARD L.

Its appearances include seven New Year's Day Bowl Game appearances in the Orange Bowl, Gator Bowl, Tangerine Bowl, and Cigar Bowl. This band represented Florida in the famous Cherry Blossom Parade in Washington, D. C. The band was guest of the Cuban National Tourist Commission for four days in Havana, Cuba, playing four concerts and marching in two parades, and playing before the President of Cuba.

What is lacking in maturity of voices is made up for in enthusiasm and interest in performing good music. The Choir presents two full concerts each year, one at Christmas and one in the spring, During the year the choir also gives numerous performances for civic groups, local radio, and exchange concerts with neighboring schools and colleges. The choir has averaged over twenty public appearances each year for the last three years. Each summer ten singers are given scholarships to attend one week of summer music camp. Three goals of this organization are: to achieve proper use of the voice, to receive training in music fundamentals, and to acquaint themselves and their listeners with the value of good music. Dr. H. L. Green, Coordinator of Music of Pasadena, California, commented on the choir: "This is one of the finest junior High School Choirs I have ever heard." Dr. Green gave the choir a No. I rating in every one of twenty-seven categories at a recent Southern California Vocal Festival.

" , ' rr-1.1 J I ' i 1 t figwit' PE - . we " H . ' V l,,, ' i , The town of Ceres is justly proud of this 90-piece band. It all began eleven years ago when Mr. Vernon "Bert" Stevenson, a young and determined director took his first job teaching the Ceres High School Band. Through his drive and determination, those hard years of hard work, worries, and overtime have paid off-for the finished product is the versatile and superior band it is today. The main interest of half the football fans is the halftime show for, when the halftime gun sounds, this band is always sure to put on an outstanding performance. Under the direction of Ann Escobar, drum majorette, a fast cadence, quick changing formations, and original shows bring that special spark which few high school bands possess. Audiences are given a special treat when this band marches with lights. Due to their keen performances, they are asked each year to represent an out-of-state college football team by presenting a halftime show at the College of Pacific in Stockton, California. With the last football game, this band makes the radical change from marching band to concert band. This is always looked forward to by the band even though it means hard work, hours of practice, and many night rehearsals, for concert season is its main interest. The Ceres High Band is always well represented at the County Festival held in January, in which many C.H.S. Band members take first chair. For the past ten years, this band has received nothing but Superior ratings at the California Festival, and in 1955 it was awarded a plaque for being the outstanding band at the Northern California Festival. Recently it was honored to be asked' to play for the California Music Educators' Association in Santa Rosa. Although it is a Class B school, the Ceres Band presents at its Spring Concert and at the California Festival a program that consists of Class A and AA music. Yes, the town of Ceres is justly proud of this band because the determination, vigor, and enthusiasm of lMr. Stevenson have obviously rubbed off on his students, giving them the wonderful individual attitude to make their band the very best. -vu - Q MR. VERNON "BERT" Band Director Upon graduating from Modesto College and San jose State, Mr. "Bert" Stevenson took his first at Ceres High School where he now taught for eleven years. his first seven years there, he the mixed chorus, girls' glee club advanced band and taught the tary and junior bands. Now is able to devote his time to the bands and is one of the school's selors. Mr. Stevenson holds a secondary in music and has a Superior band for ten c years. To Mr. Frank Mancini Harold Bartlett he expresses thanks and appreciation for all help.

The following summer the group returned to the east coast and again placed among the top five bands appearing in Atlantic City. It was a rare privilege for the members of the group to meet with President Eisenhower during the summer of 1954 and with Vice President Nixon the following year. The group adopted the name of the Columbine Band as suggested by Presi- dent Eisenhower and the members are very proud of the sleeve patches designed for them, displaying the state flower of Colorado.

Many honors have been placed upon the band for its superior performance and musician- ship. Parades, music festivals, and community projects receive full participation from the band. Aside from play- ing three major concerts a year, the band performs for all activities of the school, including football and basket- ball games and rallies. JOHN SOBOTKA CARL SCHWUCHOW The high school musical training of Mr. Schwuchow was completed at Hobart, Indiana, where for six years he studied under the capabale direction of Dr. Williain Revelli. His college career was spent at Western State College in Kentucky and at Northern Teachers College in South Dakota, where most of his time was spent in higher studies of music and theory. Among his many honors, he is, at the present time, State Chairman for the A.S.B.D.A. Although the Decatur Senior High School's enrollment places the band in Class "A" competition, in 1953, by permission of the Alabama Band Masters' Association, the Decatur High School Band entered Class "AA" competi- tion. During its fourteen years under Mr. Schwuchow, the band received fourteen Superior ratings at the State Band Festival. The band is proud of its record of achievementg still, it is not satisfied to rest on the laurels of past victory, but is pushing on to newer and better ideals.

Its ratings have been among the top for the last ten years. Last spring Paonia had the distinct honor of being the only school in the thirty schools of all classifications entered in the Music Festival to receive a "First Division" rating in everything entered. Having 225 in high school and an average of sixty in the band year after year gives Paonia one of the highest percentages of high school students in band in the state.

DAY, JR., Director This 79-piece prize-winning high school band under the direction of William B. Day, Jr., has never placed under a "third" in any marching contest it has entered. In street parades it has never won under a first place award. The "RAMBOLEERS," as it is often called, has only missed one performance in the past ten years and that was because of the dreaded flu epidemic. It has never placed below an Excellent in Concert Band rating. Some of the many trophies of this boosting red-and-gray band include: First place in jackson, Tennessee Christmas Parade for 9 consecutive ytarsg First place in Murray State College Annual Band Contest for 5 consecutive yearsg First place at the Exchange Bowl in 1,9555 and a state-wide rating of Superior for the concert band in the same year. Murray State College holds Humboldt's ambitions in its hand. Each year since 1951 the crack "RAMBOLEERS" have worked toward this goal and place it among the highest of accomplishments. In 1951 they tied for Third place, then in 1952 won Third place. Working toward a higher advancement, the H.H.S. Band won the Second place award in 1953, and after a hard struggle for a high laurel, they won First place in 1954, '55, and '56, Due to the flu epidemic and lack of practice they fell back to their vied second place this year, but with winning hearts are awaiting the contest next year. The All-State Band has been constantly aware of the H.H.S. Band's presence. In the past few years they have placed many outstanding musicians in it. Among these are: WALTER WARMATH, BOBBY HARRINGTON, FREDDY WOOD, RONALD TAYLOR, JEAN CHILDERS, and RITA WILSON. Alternates named were CARY DON I-IARDISON and GEORGE SHANKLE.

EVENSEN, Director A strong band tradition has been built in Wadena over the past few years as each school term the group strives to better itself in quality. With a high school en- rollment of 260 students, the number of musicians in the Concert Band is limited to seventy. With emphasis on both Concert and Parade, the band has achieved con- siderable fame in both departments. In 1957 the band was proclaimed the "Basketball Pep Band of the Year" in competition with twenty-two other top bands in the state by Radio Station WCCO in Min- neapolis. The band was invited to give a Clinic-Concert performance at the Leamington Hotel in Minneapolis for the Minnesota Music Educators' Conference in February. The Concert Band appeared at the Northern Minnesota Education Association Conference with a Music Reading Clinic and formal concert before the Assembly in October. The Marching Band received acclaim and trophies for performances in various parades and festivals during the CONCERT BAND PERSONNEL Who Have Achieved State "A" Rating as a Soloist at Least Once.

The Concert Band was awarded its fourth consecutive "A" rating in the State Music Contest with the performance of "March and Procession of Bacchus" by Delibes, and "The Universal judgement Overture" by DeNardis-Cafarella. Bandmaster Glenn K. Evenson believes that one reason why the group meets with the success it does is that nearly everyone in the Concert Band is participating in either Solo or Ensemble work and usually both. Last year this group earned a total of twenty-two "A" State ratings out of twenty-seven entries. Through mutual co- operation of everyone concerned, the Band Department has, been built up to a degree comparable to schools many times larger. Long-playing records are made each year which include highlights of the Spring Concert. These serve to bring back memories to the former members of the band as to their once having been a part of this organi- zation, one of Minnesota's "finest," GLENN K.

II9 ELIZABETH CITY, NORTH CAROLINA, HIGH SCHOOL BAND SCOTT C. CALLOXWAY, Dfl'L't'fUl' The Elizabeth City High School Band has a membership of eighty-seven. It was in 1938 that the Elizabeth City School Board hired its first band director, Mr. Gene Gorman, who presently directs the Avon Park, Florida Band. It was also in 1958 that Mr. Miles Clark, prominent Elizabeth City businessman fa Distributor for the Texas Companyj, became the sponsor of the band. "Uncle Miles," as the Band affectionately calls him, is one of the staunchest supporters of the band and its activities. He rarely misses a rehearsal and it would be fair to say that in the twenty years that he has sponsored the Band, the performances he has missed could be counted on the fingers of the hand. The band is recognized and supported by the school authorities headed by Superintendent Dr. N. H. Shope and High School Principal, Mr. Fred Eason, and by the Elizabeth City Band Club, which was organized several years ago for the purpose of stimulating interest in the activities, functions, and progress of the bands. The Band Club is headed by Mr. Walter Rudd, President, Mr. Crowder Jones, Vice Presidentg Mr. T. F. Lowry, Treasurer, Mrs. G. Blount, Corresponding Secretaryg and Mrs. Kenneth Goodwin, Recording Secretary. This band has long been noted for its outstanding marching ability. For many years it has excelled in precision drill routines. In recent years, however, a determined effort has been made to have the band's playing ability to rank with its marching ability. The Concert Band and the Marching Band are made up of the same personnel with the Drum Major and the Majorettes playing the instruments in the Concert Band. RAY TVIIDDY, Band Captain.

LAMBRECHT, Direclw' firms !Y" . J. The Carthage High School Band celebrated its twentieth anniversary on November 1, 1957 with a homecoming banquet, reunion, and tour of the school and city for the original 1937-38 Band. The half-time football show dedi- cated to the original Carthage High School Band was not performed due to the cancellation of the game caused by the Asiatic flu of too many of the visiting team members. The original and present director of the band is Clarence J. Lambrecht. In its twenty years the band has carried out a well balanced music education program. In addition to active participa- tion in all phases of University Interscholastic League Music Contests, the Marching, Concert, and Pep Bands are integral parts of the music life of the school and com- munity. The Marching Band was awarded First place in its class at the annual University of Texas Band Day Parade in Austin, Texas on October 5, 1957. The Marching Band also made a Division I rating at the University Inter- scholastic League Region IV Marching Contest held at Carthage, Texas on November 26, 1957. The Region IV Concert and Sight Reading contests will also be held in Carthage on April 23, 24, and 25, 1958. C J.

Kasko, a relatively "newcomer" in the band-directing field, who, in a period of only six years, has developed simultaneously outstanding marching, concert, and stage bands-each band a First Division organization with Superior ratings, and, in so doing, has been a great inspiration to young band directors through- out the country. In the fall of 1951, Mr. Kasko, who had just completed his college work, was given his first as- signment-Director of Bands at Polytechnic High School. At that time the band consisted of a 55-piece marching and concert band. During the short time that has elapsed since that date, a First Division Stage Band, which has received state-wide acclaim, has been organized, a 130- piece Marching Band has developed to such a degree of perfection that it is considered a model for other bands interested in improvement, and a consistent First Division 90-piece Concert Band has taken its place among the great high school concert bands. To accomplish so much in such a short period of time has required inspiring and dedicated leadership. It is good to know that young directors of today have the same all-consuming devotion to their work which has prevailed throughout the years in the history of the great high school musical organizations of our country. Our young people and our music are still in good hands. ". s - ,. I 'ff fl' - 1, :Q :V - - -' f:. . 'fyiiftfj ',"' 7- 1' , F I' ! .Q V ff ' 'ff -lf if' fr 5 , f' J 'l -ff -,f 5.--,f rf-- .. 5 'rj 'T. " I 1 ' 1 2 . : if fi 'I A .,.,, , . . . , The earliest recollections of Director Frank D. Kasko are his love for music and his contant striving toward perfec- tion in all phases of band work. At the age of twelve, when he became Drum Major of his junior High School Band in Trenton, New jersey, bands became the motivating interest and the controlling factor in his life. While Drum Major of Trenton High School, he won many awards, medals, and trophies, both for his drum majoring abilities and his baton twirling. In 1959 as Drum Major of the Trenton American Legion Band, he was selected as "All- American Drum Major" at the National American Legion Convention in Atlantic City. After graduation from Tren- ton High School in 1959, Mr. Kasko served five years in the United States Infantry, including two years of combat duty in the European Theatre of Operations. After his discharge from the Army, Mr. Kasko entered Texas Christian University, where he was Drum Major and Student Conductor of the famous T.C.U. Horned Frog 'J .-I A 5' 5 ' 'f .- iw . "7 -, - Band for four years. He completed his B.M.E. degree at T.C.U. in 1950 and graduate work in 1951. Upon com- pletion of his college work, Mr. Kasko accepted the posi- tion as Band Director at Polytechnic High School. During the six years he has served in this capacity, the band has increased in size and has become one of the outstanding high school bands in the country, winning Superior ratings at all contests and being constantly in demand for per- formances. Mr. Kasko gives unceasingly of his time and effort to his band work and to his students. In addition, he works in various music clinics and camps throughout the Southwest and serves as a judge of baton twirling and drum majoring and of marching, concert, and stage bands. At the present time he is Band Chairman of Region X of the Interscholastic League of Texas. Mr. Kasko's most prized possession is a certified copy of a Special Resolution passed by the House of Representatives of the State of Texas, commending him as being an Outstanding Texan.

For the past five years the band has won top honors in every marching contest and competitive parade it has entered, and now is known as "The Pride of the Southwest." The band mem- bers are proud of their record and have an individual and united loyalty to the organization-which has made possible the enviable record accomplished in such a short period of time. The band's trophy room is now filled to capacity and over 300 First Division medals have been awarded to individual bandsmen during the past five years. The band is known for its outstanding precision marching, a military style of full-stride marching, both in band formation and in company fronts. However, the Band is also noted for its fancy dance routines and is particularly famous for its spectacular pageantry shows. In addition to performing at the high school football games, "The Marching 100" has performed as Guest Band at numerous college and professional football games, including a performance at the New Year's Day Football Classic in Dallas on january 1, 1956. In April 1956, the Band appeared as the only marching exhibition band at the Highland Festival, a concert festival held every four years at Highland Park High School in Dallas, consisting of guest bands from four states attending by invitation on merit only. The band enjoys working hard for such shows and participating in the actual performance of same. Its only regret is that time does not permit accep- tance of all of the invitations that the Band receives almost daily. On March 8, 1955, a Special Resolution fH.S.R. No. 160j was passed by the House of Representatives of the Fifty- Fourth Legislature of the State of Texas, commending this organization for its outstanding work. A copy of this resolution was printed in the permanent journal of the House of Representatives. "The Marching 100" was further rewarded by receiving an invitation to participate in Presi- genE:Eisenhower's 1957 Inaugural Parade in Washington, The Director and the Band Members of this proud organi- zation work hard twelve months of each year to accomplish their desired results. Their efforts have been rewarding and have had far-reaching effects, as new and tremendous interest in band work in and around Fort Worth has been revived with most gratifying results. The Band, 130 in number, makes a very striking appear- ance in black uniforms with white cross belts, white shoulder cords, white gloves, and white spats. The uniform is topped with black West Point style hats with white chin straps and large orange lumes. All of the brass instruments of the Band, including eight bass horns, are of bright yellow gold and are polished to perfection. The first rank of the Band consists of eight beautiful gold herald trumpets carrying banners of black satin with white lettering, "The Marching 100."

POLYTECHNIC HIGH SCHOOL BAND 5 'if - "MISS TEXAS OFFICIAL BAND" The Stage Band of Polytechnic High School, consisting of twenty members selected from the Concert Band, has been acclaimed as one of the outstanding high school dance bands in the country. The Band has performed at every civic organization and club in Fort Wcnrtli and surrounding communities and is in constant demand for such perform- ances. The Band has provided variety shows, and banquet and dance music for many state organizations, such as the Annual State P.T.A, Meeting, the Annual Meeting of Classroom Teachers of the State of Texas, and the Annual Meeting of State Distributive Education Students. Twice each year, in November and April, this group, called the PARROT TROUPERS, presents a musical variety show at their school. These shows have become so popular that city-wide attendance has demanded repeat performances throughout the week. The Stage Band won top honors in contests throughout the state and has received many trophies and special awards for their effors. At the request of the Fort Worth junior Chamber of Commerce, this group has furnished music and special entertainment at the "Miss Fort Worth Contest" for the past three years and the band was designated as "Miss Texas Official Band" at the 1957 "Miss Texas Pageant." In this connection the band performed at the three-day pageant held at Kerrville, Texas, during the month of August. Such performances in- cluded special shows for 30 minutes before the opening of each night's pageant and again during each judging period, as well as supplying special arrangements and scores for the accompaniment of fifteen of the contestants and "walking" music for the entire group.

Over the past few years, the Choral Department has enjoyed a normal growth and prior to this year there was a Girls' Choir, a General Music Class, and a select Varsity Choir with a record membership of fifty- three voices. In September of 1957 Miss jane Reeder was appointed choral teacher and, under her leadership the enrollment has increased to 245 students. Miss Reeder enlisted one varsity of ninety-six, another of eighty-two, a feeding choir of thirty-five underclassmen, and junior high choirs of nearly sixty voices. The growth has been rapid and within the short period of weeks, the groups appeared in eight programs for assemblies, P.T.A. meetings, civic club meetings, and other school events. By Christmas vacation, the Choral Department and ensembles plus soloist had appeared in over twenty-three programs throughout the Chattanooga area. They were featured in an hour long radio broadcast, a fifteen-minute TV program, several guest appearances on radio and TV, and recently they received an invitation to appear in a series of concerts in the Southern States during the Spring. The small en- sembles and soloist from these groups have received many invitations to appear before civic and school groups. Forthcoming is a large Choral Department Musical which will be given in February and will have a cast of over two hundred students. The school now has a new addition which includes a com- plete and modern Band Department, large auditorium, choral rehearsal hall and numerous rooms and offices with facilities for choral and orchestral music and instrument storage. The objectives of the department are: Qlj Learning to love choral and orchestral music by listening to good music as well as performing it, C25 finding an enjoy- ment and need for music in the daily lives of young people, C35 Seeing a need for different types of music in the adult lives of the students, MD "Students Learn by Doing" fthe directors' philosophyj is 'also a department objective. It is the student, not the director, who needs to be recog- nized and placed in the "limelight," The director believes in training students to accept individual responsibilities, use initiative, exert leadership, and learn to workin harmony with other individuals to produce beautiful music. There are student directors who warm the classes up before the director even enters the classroomg student teachers, music librarians, office assistants for the Choral Department are just a few of the ways students are trained to accept these responsibilities. The Music Council is the governing body for the Music Department and their code is an Honor System based on individual and group ethics. A very outstanding asset of the school is the natural talent available and the cooperation of all faculty members in locating it. Even the football coaches assist by listening to their players in the shower room and sending the more promising basses and tenors to the choral room for auditions. Over sixty percent of the boys in the two large varsities are members of some athletic team and several others are managers. The Athletic Department believes that the music classes help their students gain poise before athletic fans and that rhythm and coordina- tion as taught in music will carry over from these classes to athletics. In many ways, music helps all departments and all departments help music. RED BANK HIGH SCHOOL Chattanooga, Tennessee 5, I MASSED CHORAI.

Since that time it has given many students the opportunity to sing and act before many audiences. The activi- ties of the organization range from singing light opera to the Oratorio-Hande1's "The Messiah." It has performed annually for the Mid-South Fair, giving thirty minutes up to an hour of Vesper Music on Sundays. Messick's choral group has sung for many organizations such as the Tennessee Education Association, Parent-Teachers Association, Citizens for Eisenhower dinner for Governor Shivers of Texas, The Bee- thoven Club, Youth for Christ, churches, TV QWMCT and WKNOQ and many others. The students in the organization who desire to do so may try out for the All- State Chorus. Each year finds Messick students ready and eager to add their names to the list of schools participating in the Tennessee All-State Choruses. Messick had six students chosen for the National Golden jubilee Chorus in St. Louis in 1956. From the six, one was selected to be numbered with the twelve soprano soloists. The group has adopted as its motto: "If a thing is worth doing-it must be done well." Mrs. Carolyn Butin McCalla has been head of the Vocal Depart- MRS. CAROLYN BUTIN M ment at Messick since 1951.

The members have a feeling of pride and a deep sense of loyalty to the organization that prepares them to hold positions in many of our prominent universities and col- leges throughout the country. As the student is the basic factor in all education, it follows that the philosophy of our Band Department is to develop in him a sense of responsibility, qualities of leadership, and the desire to always strive to do his best-qualities that are so essential for becoming a good American citizen and in helping him to pursue a successful career of his own choice. ii ' ' ll-i I, 1 I TQ I I I I fm I.

Each year since 1948 the Kohler organization has won First Division ratings in its district in concert and in marching competition. During the same period Kohler has sent the largest number of starred soloists from the Eastern Wisconsin District to the annual State Music Festival held in Madison. The past four years the band has been featured as a demonstration organization at the annual convention of the Wisconsin Education Association in Milwaukee, at the University of Wisconsin Mid-Winter Music Clinic at Madison, and at a Music Department Convocation at the Wisconsin State College in Oshkosh. The pride of the community, Kohler High School Baud plays a large role in village activities. ' za E1 1 The musicians play at-village functions and some of the high school musicians double as members of the Kohler Co. Band. The popularity of the high school band is evidenced by the fine attendance at band concerts held in the new Kohler Memorial Theatre. That this excellent concert organization could be developed and continued in a high school with an enrollment of only 109 students attests to the unusually fine support given by the people of Kohler Village and by Kohler Co. It also attests to the outstanding esprit de corps of the band members them- selves, Kohler High School Band has its home in the new 351,500,000 Kohler Memorial Theatre, described as the finest facility of its kind in Wisconsin. Again I say for this village: "The size of a community has nothing to do with the quality of the people who live in it."-The Editor. , WALTER WRIGHT, Director e N Member of Wi'sconsin Bandmasters' As- sociation, the American School Band Directors' Association, and Pi Kappa Lambda, honorary music fraternityg graduate of Lawrence College Conserva- H , tory of Music, advanced study at Uni- : versity of Wisconsing Director of out- 1 standing Wisconsin High School Bands for past 21 yearsg came to Kohler in 1948 and has served as Director of High School, Grade School, and Kohler County Bands.

HEATH, Di1'eL't01' KSCH New Jersey State Pagffl The Atlantic City High School Band, the "Vikings," is composed of sixty marching members and twelve alter- nates. In addition, there are four majorettes, a color guard, banner bearers, and a twirling corps of twenty girls which comprise the football half-time show unit. The A.C.H.S. Band has long been noted for being a fine Marching Band as well as a well-balanced Concert Band. The Viking Band puts on elaborate shows at all the home and away football games, participates in many parades, plays at all pep rallies, home basketball games, and civic functions during the year. After the football season, the Band reorganizes into a Concert Band and turns its attention to the best music in the Concert Band Field. It always has its annual Band and Orchestra Concert during Music Week in May as well f --1 ff as la in in the Field Da Pro ram and in the Memorial P Y 8 Y 8 Day Parade. During the years, the music organizations have played hosts to many national conventions, such as the American Association of School Administrators, The National Asso- ciation of School Boards, the National Association of Parents4Teachers, etc. For the past few years, the Band has marched in the Miss America Beauty Pageant Parade and for many patriotic functions on a local and national scale. Many of the A.C.H.S. Band members are selected each year to play in the All-State Band and Orchestra of New Jersey. A Band Boosters' Club was formed last year and many fine things are in store for the betterment of the band. jtr -1 il if A W,-l Q MAJORETTES BAND MANAGERS Theodore Winston and Gerald Armon 'Tir t',- ' 5. 1 .

J. SHOEMAKER, Director 6SeeI11if10iS Safe Page In the fall of 1929 Clarence Shoemaker reported in to Downers Grove, Illinois, to take charge of the Instrumental Music program in the schools. At that time the high school band numbered twenty-one members and there was no organized instrumental class system in the grade schools from which to provide candidates for the senior band. With the full support of the School Boards of the Downers Grove School System and the help of a fine Band Parents' Organization, a schedule of instrumental class instruction was inaugurated covering grades four through nine. As a result of this program a fine grade school band has been developed and maintained over the years. The High School Band likewise began to grow in size and improve in instrumentation and performance quality. Through years of hard work and band contest competition, the band has earned a position among the finest in the state of Illinois. It has been a Superior winner in every state contest from 1937 until the present time and has one Regional Contest Championship to its credit. That was the Region III Band Contest at Battle Creek, Michigan, in 1940. In 1954 the Downers Grove High School Band made a guest ap- pearance at the Convention of the National School Band Directors' Association at the University of Illinois. Of course the Band is active in school and community affairs.

BOARDMAN HIGH SCHOOL BAND Youngstown, Ohio RICHARD S. BAME, Director This band has distinguished itself as a Marching Band and as a Concert Band. On the football field, the band has delighted audiences with unique shows containing black-outs, moving figures, and script writing. It further demonstrated its marching ability by participating in and leading many parades in the area. In recognition of its superb marching, the Band was invited to the Safety Patrol Parade in Washington, D. C. last spring, As the only band from Ohio, it made an impressive showing, thus representing well the State of Ohio. Each year the Band takes strides in improving musicianship, intonation, and instrumentation. Numerous solos and ensembles which have competed successfully in district and state contests prove the results of hard work and practice. Last year the Band took the responsibility of planning and holding the District V Band, Orchestra, and Choral Contest. This year the Band again took a great load by providing for the District V Band Clinic held in january. The Boardman High School Band is a model of cooperation and teamwork for other bands in the area. The scope of its activities is too numerous to describe fully. The Band even has its own Christmas cards printed. Several factors explain the success of this organization. The devotion to work of Mr. Bame and the system of officers from Captain to Rank Corporal are undoubtedly essential. Furthermore, the band has staunch support in the Band and Orchestra Mothers' Club, which helps buy instruments, uniforms, and provides the annual banquet in the spring. And, not to be tossed aside, is an undefinable "spirit" which pervades the Band and supplies its members with a loyalty and ability seldom seen and much to be desired. 5'7- ff' l -y all 1 5' R 'E' 1 wiivf l' 5 . -A -G 'D' ,. iw .- -, - in 1. ,if f t' rl.-uzzdiv I -ff RICHARD s, T ' ' 7 ' ' Director + . l A-A-, f if 1 '- , I HOXVARD BRADLEY.

MITCHELL, Director Dedication The Churchland High School Band of Norfolk County in Virginia was organized in 1946. Its present director assumed leadership in the summer of 1952. Emphasis was placed on musical perfection and an increased number of band activities. Included in the stepped-up program were ten elaborate and entirely different half-time shows each football season, two formal concerts each year, long dis- tance trips for performance, a series of assembly programs for the high school student body, and participation in the district competitive festival. The Band has participated in such major events as the A.A.A. Safety Parade in Washing- ton and the Apple Blossom Festival in Winchester, Vir- ginia from which it returned with a trophy signifying its competence. Members of the Churchland Band are veteran travelers and have been as far from home as southwestern Pennsylvania on a concert tour. District Festivals have seen this group win Superior ratings awarded by judges of the highest degree of integrity in the music world. . , The Executive Board is the governing body of the Band and is composed of the Student Director and a Representative from each class. An additional representative is sent by the Majorettes so that their group may have a voice in matters concerning them. All issues regarding the organization and the conduct of the band members are handled by this group with the advice of the Director, Left to Right: DAVID CREEKMORE, Eighthg BOBBY HUGHES.

Since 1954 when Mr. I-Iambrick became Director of Bands in Commerce, the Band has participated in the Gator Bowl Festivities, the Govern0r's Inaugural Parade in Atlanta, Georgia, and Band Days at the neighboring University of Georgia and Clemson College. For the past four years the Commerce "Tiger Band" has received a Superior rating in the Georgia State Music Festival. An outstanding marching band, it was chosen to perform the pre-game show for the Georgia Tit- V ' ,. If .r High School All-State Football Game in Atlanta this fall. After attending Band Camp as a unit for a week each summer, the Commerce students begin a rigid schedule. Playing at all home and away football games, presenting an annual Christmas Concert, participating in Georgia Music Festival, preparing for a Spring Concert, and contributing the musical support for numerous parades constitute a fine year for Commerce Band students. A five-day state tour highlights the spring season and outdoor park concerts give the community more opportunities to hear this fine band.

MAYVILLE, NORTH DAKOTA, HIGH SCHOOL BAND ROGER L, KOLSRUD, Director The Mayville High School Band of seventy members has become noted as one of the top Concert and Marching units in the area. The Band in the past six years of compe- tition has rated Highly Superior in every contest entered. This includes county, district, and state levels. Soloists and ensembles drawn from the band members have compiled one of the better records in the state in contest competition. The membership includes students from the 8th through the 12th grades. Prep Band and Beginners' Band total a membership of eighty-five, with students beginning in- strument study in the fifth grade. The Band appeared in parade and concert at.the Minneapolis Acquatennial 2 yearsg Duluth Centennial 19565 N. D. Soap Box Derby Band of the 2 yearsg N. D. State Fair at Grand Forks, as well as practically every local parade and band day within a radius of 100 miles. The Band's rating in major parade competition has never been far from the top, although the most concentration is on concert work. The Mayville High School A Cappella Chair has an equally fine record and the group has been acclaimed as one of the finest choirs of its type in the state.

When the Central High School Band was organized, it was used only for military purposes but xery soon began to grow in importance In 1949 Mr A E McClain came to Central and Gave the band the motto Spirit-Attitude CENTRAL HIGH SCHOOL BAND State Memphis, Tennessee A. E. McCLAIN, Direrfor Dedication -Musical Ability. Late in the summer, open band practice is held during which new members enroll. When school begins, each member is given a tryout based on scales, sight reading, tone, and technique. He is then placed in the Band where he can best serve most effectively in the promotion of a full-sounding and balanced unit. The Band's activities in- clude appearances at football games, assemblies, parades, civic functions, and concerts. It has presented concerts in several states to stimulate interest in music. One of the highlights in the band year is a tour taken in the spring and often includes three or four states where concerts are given in schools and universities. Another important appear- ance of the Concert Band is participation in the State Music Festival. Each student makes his own grade. It is up to the individual to have his music ready at the proper time. At the end of six weeks, section leaders listen to and grade the pieces of music which have been assigned. The Band has no cer- tain number of members. The personnel is limited by considerations of balance and proficiency. Included in the year's work is a class in music theory. Since the last eight bands have earned "Superior" ratings at State Band Con- test, emphasis has been placed on good performances of the best possible music. The 1958 Central High School Band is striving to uphold the fine record of the past bands.

EUNICE MADISON, Drum Major WORTHINGTON, MINNESOTA, HIGH SCHOOL BAND State GERALD NIEMEYER, D21-atm Dedication The Worthington High School Band was organized in 1919 when Mr. Victor Moeller initiated the idea of public school music in the city and took over the directorship of the group. He held this position until Mr. Niemeyer suc- ceeded him in 1945. At the present time the membership of the band includes 32 seniors, 28 juniors, 29 sophomores, 9 freshmen-a total of 98 pieces-plus the 8 twirlers who lead the band during the marching season. In addition to daily rehearsals half of the band members take part in the 12 ensemble groups and 37 solos which will be entered in the contests this spring. The Band has won Superior ratings for the past thirteen years in contests. The people of Worthing- ton have always shown a great interest in the band, and JOHN EVANS Cadet and Trojan Band Director in 1955 when the group was invited to play at the Min- nesota Music Educators' Clinic in Minneapolis and the Midwest Band Clinic in Chicago, the businessmen of the city bought the individual band members at a "Slave Auctioni' to raise money for the trip. The Band has also performed at St. Olaf College in Norfield, Minnesota, Luther College in Decorah, Iowa, and many other cities. In 1956 Radio Station WCCO selected the W.H.S. Band as the "Football Prep Band of the Year." This year the group has been asked again to appear at the Minnesota Music Educators' Clinic in February. Besides its famed Senior Band, the Worthington school's instrumental de- partment includes a Trojan Band of 75 members, a 50- piece Cadet Band, and two grade school bands.

FAIRBURY HIGH SCHOOL BAND S F airbury, Nebraska Wie KENNETH E. FOUST, Director Dedfwffvw Outstanding in both concert and marching the Fairbury High School Band under Mr. Foust has grown from twenty-two members in 1937 to eighty-nine. Band activity starts well before the beginning of the school year when band members are to be found working out routines for future football games. Precision routines are a favorite of the band which marches at all home games and travels to one out-of-town game each season. During the first few weeks the band develops small groups, such as trios, sextets, and quartets, which, in addition to playing for various local organizations, play for concert and go to district music contest. The band also forms two pep bands which alternate playing for the rallies held before sporting events in the school. Through the year the band participates in such activities as an exchange concert with a nearby city, district music contest, three or four music and band clinics, and band days of two colleges. Local work includes a fund raising campaign for the band activity fund, a Mid-Winter Concert, and the Spring Musical. The close of the school year does not signify the end of work for the band students, for a summer band program begins two weeks after school is dismissed and continues for six weeks.

FARNUM, Da-effor- The Senior Symphonic Band has received many honors These include Division I ratings in Grade 6 Music in Rhode Island and New England Music Festivals in marching and drilling. A highlight of the year has been a series of exchange concerts with outstand- ing bands from New England, New York, and Pennsylvania. One of the popular features of the school year is the Solo and Ensemble Festival. Students enter both the Rhode Island and the New England Festivals where a Division I or II rating earns them the medals shown in the pictures. The Senior High School has a complete music department which includes a band room, chorus room, classroom, ten practice rooms, storage rooms for instruments, uniforms, and music, a listening alcove, record- ing studio, dressing rooms, and a repair room. The training program for band leader- ship begins in the junior High School at the seventh grade level. In the Senior High School Band it is a major subject with full credit. Success of the program is shown in part by some of the music played: "Rumbalero"-Camarata, "Prairie Legend"- Seigmaster, "Afternoon of a Fawn," "Rhapsody in Bluei' with Piano Solo, "Russian Sailor's Dance," "Entrance of the Gods Into Valhalla," "Flying Dutchman Overture," among others.

TOOELE, UTAH, HIGH SCHOOL BAND State LEE CALDWELL, Da-mm Dedication This outstanding band has been developed through careful planning by the director and administrators. Students must complete a course of study and pass an exacting test for admission to the concert organization. These tests and other requirements in a point system form the basis of annual merit awards that are presented at the annual banquet. The band makes many appearances-the highlight of which is the winter concert with guest artists from the Utah Symphony and from the colleges. The band competes in Class A and is a consistently Superior organization as are a record number of soloists and ensembles. On January 18, the band played at the Mid-Winter Music Clinic of the U.M.E.A. with Thor johnson as critic for the basis of a discussion on adjudication. The band has a fine library of music and has access to the Ricks College Band Library. The Marching Band is also a highly skilled organization and has received acclaim at such great parades as The Lions International Parade in San Francisco where it was acclaimed by the press as "An Eyecatching Feature of the Parade," the Elko Fair and Live Stock Show, and others too numerous to mention and in all of which it received the highest of praise. Note the picture of the band in Bermuda shorts, yellow knee-length stockings and striped blouses in which they have been admired by thousands of people wherever they appear. flt has been a privilege of the editor of FIRST CHAIR OF AMERICA to see and hear this very fine organization and I commend them highly for their outstanding performance.-The Editorj l MARCHING BAND LEE CALDWELL BATEMAN, Drum and Majorette, JUDY DENNIS SPENDLOVE and JANICE BRYAN.

MIAMI SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL BAND Miami, Florida State orro J KRAUSHAAR Da-may Dedication The Miami Senior High School "Million Dollar" Band has achieved an impressive record of activities .and accomplishments during the past decade. With its auxiliary organizations, the band numbers around two hundred and thirty students. Of the total, one hundred and eighty are bandsmen, the remaining students being members of march- ing units-The Dancing Majorettes, Stingarettes, Flagettes, and Ballet. The hundred and eighty musicians called the "Marching Band" are divided into two smaller groups-a "Concert Band" and a "Stingaree Band" for the purpose of facilitating rehearsal and administrative problems. The Miami High Band has been and is a regular participant in district, state, and regional CNationalj band contests and in them has accumulated an impressive total of First Division CSuperiorj ratings in concert, march- ing, and sight reading events. The Miami High Band regularly participates in community and educational activities in cities throughout the state of Florida and is in constant demand for appearances in hometown Miami. The band has made several trips to neighboring Cuba for the "Carni- val de la Habana" as guests of the City of Miami and the Cuban Government. In 1956 the band and majorette units went to South America as guests of the City of Manizales, Columbia, for their annual Fiesta. These one hundred and eighty student musicians together with the Dancing Majorettes, Stingarettes, Flagettes, Ballet, and other colorful units have made an outstanding impression on Miami football fans. The Miami Senior High School Band has pioneered many firsts in half-time shows for Miami football fans. In 1939 they introduced the art of Swiss Flag Swinging. In 1940 their Blacklight Show received national attention. 1941 brought on Miami's first large Majorette Corps when the Miami High Majorettes took the field. 1943 introduced Miami's first between-halves musical pageant which Miami High called "Salute to the United Nations." Hailed as one of the snappiest bands in the South for its marching maneuvers and throughout the country as a superb convert group, its is dear to the hearts of Mramians as Miami's "Million Dollar" High School Band. The band and majorette units have received wide acclaim for the colorful pageants staged each year. The Miami High Band is well represented in university and college bands. Many thousands of dollars worth of university scholarships have been awarded to its graduates. Under the banner "Leadership-Character," which is also a philosophy, graduates of the Miami High Band are daily taking their places as leaders in their communities. 282 OTTO J.

RICHARD A. OTTO, Di1l'ecz'01' The Lyman Hall High School Band was organized in 1928 through the efforts of Robert H. Early who was then principal. Guided by a philosophy of making music inclusive rather than exclusive, the Lyman Hall Band steadily grew to a membership of one hundred. For many years it has received top ratings in both state and regional festivals and thus holds an established position among musical organizations of the East. Its annual activities include appearances at football games, assemblies, civic func- tions, parades, concerts, and festivals. It has presented concerts in communities through- out the state to stimulate interest in music. One of the highlights in the band's history was experienced when it performed at the M.E.N.C. Eastern Convention, in Buffalo, New York, in February 1953. To the then newly-formed Music Parents' Club goes credit for raising over five thousand dollars in less than two months to defray expenses of the memorable trip. Members of the band are given weekly instrumental lessons by the music directors and are placed in the band where they can serve most effectively in the promotion of a full sounding and balanced unit. Unnecessary tension is thus eliminated from rehearsals and the young musicians give a good accounting of themselves unencumbered. l l , , . J. ...,..., ,,.,.Y ,..aa---, Catherine S.

Band has worked toward the highest standards of musicianship and marching. It has won the State Fair Marching Contests four out of the past seven years. The 1956-57 Band received an All-Superior rating in the District Contests and an Overall Superior rating in the State Contests. These contests grade each band in marching, sight reading, and concert .march-and concert number selected from the National Graded lists. CThe Dreher Band played "E Pluribus Unum" and Tschaikowsky's "Finale to the Fourth Symphony." The Band participated in eight parades, twelve football shows, some basketball games, and six concerts. The Band averaged for the entire school year two hours and twenty minutes per day in rehearsal..The Dreher bandsmen are quite willing to devote their extra time in making the Dreher High School Band one of the finest in the state. Fifteen Dreher High School Bands- men were selected by the State Audition Board to participate in the 92-piece All-State Band which performed at the Southeastern Music Educators' Conference held in Miami in April, 1957.

Student Officers are ROBERT GUNN, Student Man- ager, RICHARD DIEWEY, Assistant Manager, AMELIA MACY, Secretary, JAMES VALK, Publicity Manager and Librarian, WILLIAM STANLEY, Graduate Assistant. The CONCERT BAND devotes its time to the study and performance of concert literature. An extensive library of the most important works for concert band is maintained. Frequent appearances of the Concert Band on the campus and elsewhere in the state are received with enthusiastic appreciation. The most skilled men and women players are designated for the Concert Band and the instrumentation is selected to provide a well balanced concert ensemble. Certain members of the Gator Band, such as players of instruments not essential to the marching band and girls Qexcepting bell lyre players and majorettesj may be desig- nated as members of the "Concert Band only." These members are invited to play in the stands with the March- ing Band at home games and to make trips with the Marching Band whenever financial and other arrange- ments can be made satisfactorily. During the fall semester, the Gator Band is primarily a Marching Band, composed of approximately 120 per- formers. The Band presents an elaborate program of music and maneuvers at each "home" football game, whether played in Gainesville or in neighboring cities, and usually accompanies the football team on at least one extended trip during the season. In addition, the band sometimes plays for pep concerts and parades in cities in which games are held. The Marching Band is tradi- tionally a men's organization. With the exception of the majorettes and bell lyre players, girls are not mem- bers of the marching band. THE GATOR RESERVE BAND concentrates on an interesting repertoire of concert music and the preparation of players to fill vacancies in the Gator Band. Many students who are qualified to play in the Gator Band, but who cannot meet the requirements of the Gator Band schedule, register for the Reserve Band. THE GATOR VARIETY BAND is an organization of some twenty members which specializes in the study and presentation of music in the dance, popular stage band, television, and radio-presentation style. Membership is open to musicians who have ability of a near professional level, and who are interested in receiving training in the various musical styles encountered in dance, radio, television, and show music. The Variety Band performs at its own annual jazz concerts, for musical shows, for dancing, and for athletic department gymnastic and water shows. This band serves as a valuable workshop in composition and arranging and its repertory includes many compositions and arrangements by University of Florida students. MILI- TARY BANDS are composed of approximately 100 basic ROTC students. Instrumentation is selected from members of the Army and Air Force units so that the two bands may appear separately or combined as the occasion demands. Students selected meet with the band instead of with companies for the regular ROTC drill period. A PEP BAND composed of selected volunteers from the various bands is organized to play for pep meet- ings, rallies, and other informal occasions.

NORWICH, NEW YORK, HIGH SCHOOL BAND TED POST, Director Busiest of all N.H.S. organizations is the Senior Band. A high step and a peppy cadence is characteristic of the band during the football season. Every Saturday from September to the middle of November is spent present- ing football half-time reviews. As marching season comes to a halt in November, chairs are set up for Concert Season. Two annual concerts of great and enjoyable band music are given to standing room only audiences. During basketball season a snappy pep-band plays at the games and pep sessions. The most important event of the year is the N. Y. S.S.M.A. Music Festival held in May. Sum- mer months are spent traveling to conventions with local Firemen. Student-Director cooperation allows the band to march at many holiday parades celebrated in Norwich. Each year the band sends one or two of its most outstand- ing members to a summer music camp. The Norwich High School Senior Band provides valuable musical knowl- edge as well as entertaining social activities to its members. x sf 2' , Q 1 .4-1' l i Q 1 6' K IN TED POST al "' 'WR 42.4, '.

BOYD, Director Ded20cll2012 The present Memorial I-ligh School Band was organized under the direction of Mr. Donal I. Boyd in 1928 and for the past twenty-nine years has participated in all district, state, and national events in this area. The concert and marching band received 1 and 1+ ratings every year up to 1949 at which time they discontinued playing in area competition. In the fall of 1957 the new high school was completed and the students moved into a building with an ideally equipped band department which contains eight private studios, all are sound proofed. Other features are an equip- ment room, a music library, a locker room with facilities for 165 instruments, offices for the band and orchestra directors and an acoustically treated 80x45 foot band room. During the past twenty-eight years the Band Association has purchased ninety per cent of the equipment used by the concert band, now valued at 322,000 Two years ago this organization whose present officers are Mr. Wallace Loken, Presidentg Mr. Harold Smith, Vice Presi- dent, Mr. john Duffy, Treasurer, and Mrs. Everett Burns, Secretary, presented the band with new uniforms at a cost of .?S8000+.OO. The funds are raised by projects such as thrift sales, bake sales, magazine sales, and concessions at athletic events. For the past fourteen years, the Band Parents' Association has underwritten an annual spring concert trip for the band. The band has played at schools in Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota, Madison, Wis- consin, Grand Rapids, Michigan, and Chicago, Illinois, and has been invited to give concerts at Wartburg Col- lege in Waverly, Iowa and at Luther College in Decora, Iowa. In 1954 the band was invited to give demonstra- tions at the State Clinic held at the University of Wis- consin and twice it has sent its tapes to be auditedg Most students begin the study of their instruments on the junior High School level, when from the sixth through the ninth grades they learn the basic technics of their instrument under the leadership, patience, and persistence of Mr. Everett Graves. The junior High School maintains a band program of four separate units, each instrumentated for one complete band. Students in the Concert Band must attend a weekly sectional meeting under their sec- tional leader and Mr. Boyd. During the summer, sec- tionals are held once a week. Those students who have already completed the Concert Band requirements assist Mr. Boyd in teaching and screening the candidates for the next year's band. About seventy percent of the band personnel participates in the spring solo and ensemble contests each year. To illustrate the high standards required of the participants, last year out of seventy-two solos and ensembles, sixty-five received 1 and 1+ ratings. The band plays and maneuvers at all home football games. The pep band, a group of about twenty-six of the mem- bers under a student director, plays at all basketball games. It performs for community events and marches in parades on Memorial Day, Labor Day, etc. During the Second World War it played for each group of soldiers which left the city and for all bond-raising events. On at least three occasions, it has played for presidents of the United States and presidential candidates. FIRST CHAIR MEMBERS Eau Claire, Wisconsin , , State DONALD 1.

HAYS, A.s'.mr'ia1le Direrloi' Known throughout the nation as "The Pride of Mis- sissippi," the Southern College Band upholds this tradition in the finest possible way. The band has come to be known nationally through several outstanding television appear- ances. Some of these, at which the band performed for capacity crowds, were The BLUE AND GRAY Football Game, Montgomery, Alabama, The SENIOR BOWL Game, Mobile, Alabama, The Sugar Bowl Game, New Orleans, Louisianag and the professional game between the Cardinals and Cleveland Browns in Chicago, Illinois. The man responsible for making the band a big time operation at Southern is Dr. Raymond Mannoni, a gradu- ate of the University of Michigan. Under his guidance the Southern Band grew from a small unit of about forty- five members to its present large, efficient playing and marching aggregation. A highly skilled concert band is maintained, and this organization gives many outstanding performances dur- ing the year. There are many music majors within the membership of the Southern Band and these fortunate young men and women are receiving the highest type of training to equip them for future outstanding band directors. The first week in February each year, Dr. Mannoni and Southern College hold a very outstanding clinic bringing to the campus such outstanding personalities as Dr. William D. Revelli, Glenn Cliffe Bainum, Dr. E. L. Kent, Dr. Jody C. Hall, Frederick Wilkins, Nilo Hovey, Don Jacoby, Fred Weber, Gene Krupa, and many others- thus giving outstanding inspiration, contacts, and experi- ence to these future teachers. tr' ef' DR. RAYMOND MANNONI Through Dr. Mannoni's influence many additional bands have been organized in the state and these have been staffed by well-trained personnel from Southern. Mis- sissippi Southern, through Dr. Mannoni's influence, is rapidly becoming the band center of the South. At the clinic held there in 1958, directors from eight states were in attendance and this clinic is now known as one of the nation's finest band clinics. Due credit should be accorded R. D. I-lays, Associate Director of Bands who makes the very fine arrangements heard during the wonderful football shows and who is a very fine conductor and teacher in all that he does and to Gilbert Saetre who also contributes much to the success of the instrumental department at Southern.

KRAUSS, Direclol' e -Aw ,ui-was W. 1 T, The service record of the South River High School Band is one of noteworthy achievement. The organization is active from the first day of the school year through the last day of activities in june, It can be compared to the Rotary and Lions Clubs in its many contributions to the school and community. Being an active force in school affairs directly and indirectly, it has undertaken work for school improvement physically and spiritually. Among some of its efforts, we list the promotional cam- paigns for a school mascot, publicity for a new high school plant, pep rallies, extemporaneous musical assem- blies, and a well organized marching band that performs skillfully for the football audiences throughout the season. Many of the football show themes are based on sugges- tions of the student planning committee. Simultaneously the band prepares for the formal Thanksgiving assembly., Christmas assembly, and ensembles of the unit are used for the public presentation of the Nativity. Other ensembles contribute their efforts to churches, hospital units at the N. Neuro-Psychiatric Institute, Veterans groups, and the area service clubs. The Concert Band has representatives in the N. All- State Band Region Il, the All-State Orchestra, and the N. All-State Band. The band also performs at the Spring Concert offered by the Music Department of the school, at exchange programs with neighboring schools, ' , pi --i-Til-'iii-5 and at the outdoor Commencement in june. Socially, the band is also active throughout the year- planning and preparing seasonal parties, conducting the sale of school decals, book covers, and pennants. The proceeds of these sales provide for an annual excursion for the band members and their guests at the end of the school year and the purchase of additional uniforms and accessories. George P. Krauss, instrumental director for the past eight years, participated in the musical activities of the Mill- town, N. and the New Brunswick, N, Public Schools. l-Ie studied trumpet with Ernest XX!illiams and attended his Band School. Mr. Krauss is a graduate of the U. S. Navy School of Music, performed with the Concert Band at the Navy Recruiting Station, Wfashington, D. C., was assistant director of the Battleship U.S.S. New York Band and received his degree from the New jersey State Teachers College at Trenton. A member of the American Federation of Musicians, he is active with pro- fessional bands and orchestras throughout the state. Mr. Krauss has served as a member of the Try-out Committee for the All-State Chorus and the All-State Orchestra, the All-State Band, the N. All-State Band Region II, and as Program Coordinator of the N. All-State Band Region II. FIRST CHAIR MEMBERS South River, New jersey I BAND OFFICERS LENE I5 E D I.

"The Marching Bearcats," all male with the exception of three majorettes took the field at eight football games to the roaring ovation of home fans and visitors alike. The public has come to expect ingenious routines and fine precision from this "marching band that really ,l1lf1yr." This group numbers 95. The Concert Band of 90 members is organized and holds daily rehearsals immediately following the marching season. Primarily composed of marching band personnel they are joined by girls whose concert uniforms are floor length navy taffeta gowns. Presi- dent is Bill Sherratt, Vice President Alfred Lofgren, Secretary Charlotte DeLand, Treasurer Connie Shaw, Student Conductor Bob Holt, and Assistant Student Conductor is David Knockemus. In the orchestra Battle Creek High School really displays its lovely distaff musicians. l-lere girls outnumber the boys about four to one. Smallest of the performing groups this organization also enjoys a considerable following in the community. Battle Creek is proud of its symphony orchestra and several high school players are numbered among its members and many more carry their musical interest over into adult life through symphony participation. President of this group is john Parkes, Vice President Mary jo Rosa, Secretary Joyce Richardson, and treasurer is Ruth Anne Sergeant. A unique phase of B.C.H.S. musical activities is "Band Follies," an annual production which runs three nights early in january. The 1958 Follies, Manhattan Madcap, played to approximately 5,750. Although talent is auditioned from the entire student body, the total production and direction is in the hands of Mr. Kirsch. Competition is keen for spots on the show and singers, dancers and other acts are assured of backing by an 18 member dance band of professional calibre. Proceeds from this show are used by the instrumental music department for new' instrument purchases and upkeep. "Follies," 21 years old this year, has come to mean a fast paced, live wire show- a great favorite with the public. Battle Creek Public Schools numbers 16 grade schools, 3 junior high schools and the high school. Heading the music staff is Mr. Paul Tammi as supervisor. Mr. Kirsch has all instrumental music at the high school. Messrs. Harvey Thomsen, Dan Greenman, and A. B. Coffman teach the junior highs, and music instruction is provided 5th and 6th graders on all instruments with 4th graders receiving stringed instrument instruc- tion. Miss Caroline Wliite and Miss Winifred Emerson are the directors of elementary music instruction. A , - -N -X is-Ax. , . 3, Q r a 4 l 1 S .Y , W -1 , .5 ' "ff ' fx A I ' :J , 4 ' X f 1 1, .

REVELLI, Conductor The University of Michigan Symphony Band takes the spotlight at the close of the football season and is known throughout thc nation as one of the outstanding organi- zations of its kind. The late Dr. Edwin Franko Goldman was quoted as saying, "The University of Michigan Symphony Band stands without peer among college bands." The Symphony Band is the major concert unit of the' bands at Michigan, performing through Michigan and other areas of the nation. It has twice appeared before the College Band Directors' National Association. Appearances have been made in major musical centers in such auditoriums as Carnegie Hall in New York City, Philadelphia Academy of Music, Boston Symphony Hall, Shrine Auditorium in Detroit, and Bushnell Audi- torium in Hartford, Connecticut. I Critics have yielded high acclaim to the Michigan Symphony Band. Here are some of the comments: "The Unizferyity of Michigan Symphony Band, under the leaderrhip of IVilliam D. Revelli, laft night gaueta concert in Carnegie Hall. The Uniuerrity of Michigan Band is without quertion one of the finer! in the country, if not the entire world." NEW YORK HERALD TRIBUNE, Saturday, April 9, 1955. "Long conridered the hert undergraduate murical organization of ity hind in the country, it: fThe Uniuerrity of Michigan Symphony Bandj Symphony Hall concert last night proved why." BOSTON POST, Boston, Massachusetts, April 6, 1955 "ll7e have heard quite a numher of proferrional handr, hut- in our memory we find none that equalled what we heard lart night. It Kric., the Unirerrity of Michigan Symphony Bandj har the richness of the Barton Symphony, along with it.r power and rurgef it har the tonal heauzier of the Philadelphia Orchestra and the rhythmic flexibility of the New York Philharmonic, when Mitropoulo: i.r conducting." SPRINGFIELD UNION, Springfield, Massachusetts, April 5, 1955. "IV ith impeccable muricianrhip and artirtry far heyond it: age level, the University of Michigan Symphony Band played to a capacity audience." COURIER EXPRESS, Buffalo, New York, April 1, 1955. "Last night thi: 106 member aggregation Kric., the Unioerrity of Michigan Symphony Bandj came to Burhnell and performed in a collective manner that would put to shame many a trained praferrional group." HARTFORD TIMES, Hartford, Connecticut, April 8, 1955 1957 UNIVERSITY OF MICHIGAN MARCHING BAND DR. WILLIAM D. REVELLI, Cofzductor- GEORGE CAVENDER, Asrixlrmt Cozzrlzzcfor GURDON "CHAMP" PATTON, Drum Major For the first eight weeks of the fall semester, the Univer- sity of Michigan Marching Band takes the spotlight., The 1957 version of the Michigan Marching Band was one of the largest in the history of Bands at the University of Michigan. It was composed of 143 playing members, four twirlers, one drum major, a color guard of four members, and ten guidon-pennant bearers carry pennants in the various "Big Ten" colors. Tradition has established the policy of an all-male marching band and this has been true ever since its inception in 1859. With men from 26 states in its membership, it truly can be called the "All-American Band." A typical season finds this organization marching over 28,000 man-miles, or over once around the world in the preparation of its shows. This group will expend some 26,048,936,960 foot pounds of energy in the preparation of its shows during the course of a season, and if all the music it is to use in its eight-week season were to be stacked in one pile, it would tower some fifteen feet into the air. Because of its leadership, its showmanship, and its superior perform- ances, the Band was chosen as the subject of a film-short which was made by RKO Pathe Pictures. This was the film entitled, "Here Comes The Band," a "short" which received international release. The Band has also twice been chosen as the subject of a feature article in "LIFE" Magazine, and has appeared on nrunerous national tele- vision programs. All musical arrangements used on the field are specially scored for the particular show and formation. The march- ing band members drill from 4:15 to 5:45 Mondays through Fridays in preparation for each show. The posi- tion of drill-master does not exist, for Dr. Revelli and his assistant, Mr. George Cavender, work hand in hand in all the myriad details concerned with presenting per- formances. Flutes, piccolos, oboes, bassoons, contra-bas- soons, alto clarinets, bass clarinets, baritone saxophones, bass saxophones, and French horns are not used on the field. Alto horns, trombones, cornets, trumpets, euphon- iums, and the like come into prominence in the March- ing Band, giving it a sonority which is its traditional trademark. The Michigan Band has been very fortunate in having for its drum majors, some of the outstanding men in the field. Names like Richard Smith and Floyd Zarbock and "Champ" Patton are but a few. The Drum Major for the 1957 season was Gurdon "Champ" Patton from Mt. Morris, Michigan. Twirlers were: joseph Brown of Dear- born, Michigan, john Kirkendall of Burlington, Indiana, Gary Kocher of Shelby, Ohio, and James I-Iiggenbottom of Lincoln Park, Michigan. The Michigan Marching Band has appeared from coast to coast, and from this has come the title, appended by the sports writers, of "Transcontinental All-American Marching Band." Typical of its engagements are appear- ances in most of the "Big Ten" stadiums, and two appear- ances in the Rose Bowl. 3 L 'xl s 1. -.

FIRST CHAIR OF AMERICA has been published every year since with the exception of the war years. The 1940 edition carried the endorsement and best wishes for success from such outstanding men as GLENN CLIFFE BAINUM, ERNEST S. WILLIAMS, HERBERT L. CLARKE, JAMES C. HARPER, BOB MAKOVSKY, WILLIAM R. WEHREND, L. BRUCE JONES, HAROLD BACHMAN, CLIFFORD P. LILLYA, A. R. McALLISTER, A. A. HARDING, EDWIN FRANKO GOLDMAN, RALPH E. RUSH, H. A. VAN- DERCOOK, and others. The publication was approved by the National Competition Festivals QBand, Orchestra, and Vocalj Association in 1941. In 1941 a National Approval Board was set up to recom- mend outstanding organizations which Qonlyj could be presented in FIRST CHAIR OF AMERICA. The publication has grown to the present 344-page edition and the Twentieth Anniversary edition coming up in 1959 already has all recommendations made for organi- zations and directors to be included. With the publication of the 1959 CTwentieth Anniversary editionj and all following editions the publication will place those directors who have proved to be very outstand- ing in the field of music on a "permanently qualified" basis and these will take complete precedence in present- ing their organizations on an annual basis. FIRST CHAIR OF AMERICA was set up for exactly this purpose: "To honor First Chair members of America's finest High School Bands, Orchestras, and Choruses." After twenty years of sifting information from many sources, some one hundred and fifty directors will be chosen Qsome from almost each statej to receive this honor. Publication infor- mation will be sent only to those selected on this basis. ffm? MARY RAWLS BARRETT Assistant Editor, FIRST CHAIR OF AMERICA Mrs. Barrett has served as assistant editor for this publication since 1952 and has devoted many hours to sifting and arranging material sent in from the many sources. Mrs. Barrett taught for eight years in the schools of Mississippi, has assisted in the management of the Mississippi Lions All-State Band since 1950, and has a great store of knowledge regarding the quality bands, orchestras, and choruses of America. She is being promoted to the position of Editor of FIRST CHAIR OF AMERICA beginning with the 1959 QTwentieth Anniversary, edition-at which time Roy M. Martin, present editor, will assume the title of Consultant of FIRST CHAIR OF AMERICA. OTTAWA HILLS SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL ORCHESTRA Grand Rapids, Michigan W.

The Orchestra was honored by being invited to present music for the opening program of the Michigan Education Association at the Grand Rapids Civic Auditorium on October 17, 1957. Not the least important part of the orchestra's educa- tion is the preparation and performance of music for Senior plays, Christmas, and National Honor Assemblies and others. . The record of attainment of the Ottawa Hills Orchestra would be incomplete without recognition of the fine support-moral as well as financial-of the Music Parents' Club which is known as the Ottawa Hills Band and Orchestra Boosters. From the abbreviation to the initial letters comes the word OH-BO Boosters of Ottawa Hills. The purposes of this organization as listed in its constitution are: to romote and P encourage interest in the various phases of the Senior and unto School Instrumental Music Departments namely the bands and the oi -and to promote cooperation between the parents members of the and junior High School band and orchestras and the instructors lend all possible support to the instrumental music progress in our .aa All parents of the students in thc Ottawa Hills Senior and unior instrumental departments are automatically considered members Fin the OH-BO BOOSTERS have raised funds by such activities as pa rummage sales, cake sales, food concessions and the sale of adverti Spring Concert programs.
