Club april1956 macinnis

Glee Club conducted by Donald MacInnis, April 1956[1]

The 1955-1956 season of the Virginia Glee Club was conducted by Donald MacInnis. Officers included Alvin L. Pritchard, Jr., president; Lawrence L. McEvoy, Jr., manager; Stanley C. Baker and Robert H. Turner, assistant managers; Robert W. Nuckles, librarian, and Palmer S. Rutherford, Jr., assistant librarian. The accompanist was Barry Rogers and section leaders included James W. Feeley, D.M. Moore, Fred L. Somers, and James D. Vaughan, Jr..

Sometime prior to or during the season, the Club had a promotional 7" acetate made of recordings of repertoire from the prior two years, presumably with the intention of sending to radio stations as a promotional single. In April 1956 the Glee Club gave a radio performance on area radio station WTVR.[1]
