The members of High School Choir I moved into the new Music Center during the middle of this year with thei r capable director Mr. Christian Koch, who was

taking the place of Professor Backer for one year . Through different drills such as vowels sung on "gallop, ., notes accented by rehearsing t l1en1 on "bur1'I," and marking the scores \\â&#x20AC;˘lth such things as t:;quares, circles, and underlinings, the choir tried co learn better singing techniques. This choir "praised the Lord in Song" with such selections as HOW UNTO BETIJLE11EM by Shaw and 0 LITTLE FLOCK, FEAR NOT THE FOE by Weiss.
