Singing Handel’s ‘Messiah’

In Muscatine on Sunday, December 16, 1951, Dale wrote, “4° below zero this morning.  Stanley sang in ‘Messiah’ at the high school.  Watched Cardinals beat Bears in afternoon.  Good TV afternoon & evening.”  The high school chorus performed Handel’s ‘Messiah’ each year during the Christmas season.  In addition to adult soloists, we were accompanied by organ, played by Charles Shook (above). 
He was also an English Literature teacher at our high school.
