Muscatine Sings ‘Messiah’


The school paper, above, noted that the Muscatine High School chorus, 116 voices under the direction of Max Collins, and four guest soloists (Mrs. Evelyn Sanders Vaneck, soprano; Miss Corinne Hamilton, contralto; Stephen Hobson, tenor; and Harry Morrison, bass) would sing Handel’s Messiah on Sunday, December 19, 1954, with organ accompaniment by Charles Shook and piano accompaniment by Judy Smith.  Ours was the only midwest high school to perform this.
