The Cll0il' Msxifliif' The A Cappella Choir, under the skillful direction of Mr. Wfilliam Felton, spends many long and tedious hours perfecting the choral interpretation of various works. As a result, a good musical understand- ing is developed between the members of the choir and the audience which enjoys their articulate sounds. The choir accomplished I1 great deal this term, as well as the preceding terms. Their inspiring renditions are heard in the Laureati Assemblies, school shows and at the com- mencement exercises. The highlights of the term were their Christmas concert at Rayburn Plaza and Lankenau Hospital. This concert was also performed for the entire school. f Z 4 :ff A Q
