During the Winter of 1969, as a senior in high school, I was selected as a second tenor for the Virginia Music Educators Association’s VMEA Regional Chorus. Others chosen from Andrew Lewis High School were David Akers, Cassy Ammen, Robert Boyden, Billy Cantrell, Steve Coble, Phyllis Cowan, Kitty Crush, Glenda Strickland, and Mark White.
The album was recorded February 16, 1969 after only a weekend of rehearsal. When I listen to it today, I find it remarkable that these are high students singing at this level. It’s something for which I’m honored to have been able to participate. Below, you may listen to each side in its entirety.
