The Lamoni-Graceland Oratorio Society was Organized three years ago under the direction
and leadership of Miss Carlile. Its purpose was to combine the functions of the college glee club
and the church choir, thereby making a closer link between the college and community music
circles and making possible the annual rendition of Mendelssohn's 'fElijah." The combination has
been a wonderful success and has given Lamoni the distinction of having the largest church
choir in Iowa.
The Oratorio Society furnishes the usual Sunday morning anthem and provides a short concert
on the evening of the first Sunday of each month. Outside of these regular appearances the
society renders two special 'programs during the year. The first of these is a secular program
given as a number of the Lyceum Course. Thesecond is the annual performance of the "Elijah"
This year the visiting soloists are Mr. Charles Rousseau of Drake University who will sing the
Elijah r6le and Mr. George Anway of Independence, Missouri, who will sing the tenor role.
Miss Doris Gieselman and Mrs. Frances Norris of Lamoni, Iowa, will carry the soprano and
alto again this year.
At various times during the year, groups from the Organization have visited other branches in
the state stimulating interest in music and getting acquainted with the musical talent in the
The Oratorio Society is one of the factors which makes Lamoni unique. It is hoped that this
movement will continue to grow and develop under the inspiration and direction of Miss Carlile
whose vision and initiative made it possible.

LAINIONI-GRACELAND ORCHESTRAL SOCIETY
J. H. ANTHONY, Dirertor
President ......... E. DEWEY VVHITE I
Secretary-Treasurer ....... FAE EMMERSON,
Each year the orchestral interests of Graceland and Lamoni show a growth of amazing and Q
permanent character. The year 1925-26 is the apex of its growth, but its goal-the symphony- V
lies on a definite road just ahead.
During this year a definite step forward was taken when the organization voted to accept two ,
classes of members-artist and associate-the artist members to be only those who have passed '
an entrance test and who in the opinion of the director will help to bring the standard of the
organization to a higher plane. Associate membership includes the members of the various
society orchestras of the college, members of the local high school orchestras, also any player of
an orchestral instrument in the college or town.
These organizations are being maintained to develop the younger and more inexperienced
players and prepare them for a higher grade of work so they may eventually be received as
artist members. 4
The society has had an extremely active and prosperous year. Besides their regular duty of
furnishing music for the Sunday School and giving occasional concerts preceding the church
services, the orchestra has given one Lyceum number which proved very successful, featuring
such numbers as the Orpheus Overture by Offenbach, i'Norwegian Dancel' by Grieg, HThe Mill"
by Jensen, Selection from 'tCarmen" by Bizet, etc. They have assisted the College Players in all I
their plays where their efforts have been appreciated by all in attendance.
Under the inspiration and competent leadership of Mr. Anthony, Lamoni and Gracel. ar 'il
entering a new era in orchestral perfection. Mr. Anthony or "Papa Anthony" as he is ll is 5
not only a most competent and thorough director, but he is the pal of every memb r at e M ' '
stand behind him as one to help him accomplish his highest ideals.
