First Place!


In Muscatine on Saturday, April 25, 1953, Dale wrote, “Dalene went to a party and luncheon.  Stan went to Iowa City to a music contest in the afternoon.  His group won a 1st place.”  My yearbook for 1953 says I was in a Madrigal Group with Phyllis Van Zandt, Janice Faulkner, Marilyn Furnas, Ann Wigim, Joyce Ogilvie, Phyllis Duggan, Larry Misel, Kay Woodward, Doug Coder, Ken Hopkins, and Bill Buster.  Our accompanist was Sharon Mittman.  A ‘madrigal’ is a vocal music composition of the Renaissance and early Baroque eras.  Our group wasn’t as large as the one above.
