Sentimental Sunday - High School Quartet

Sentimental Sunday - High School Quartet


I think anything over 50 years old probably qualifies as "Sentimental" - certainly singing in a high school quartet with your future spouse of more than 50 years qualifies... Nancy and I in fall of 1956 or spring of 1957 - with good friends, Andy Kretizinger, great tenor, and Mary King, our soprano. Great times! Looks like the photo was in a school paper of some kind. This quartet went to All-State, that year, so it is likely in the fall... Nancy and I went together to All-State all four years of high school; Andy went all four years, in different quartets. Certainly fond memories...  ;-)

Families are forever!  ;-)

  1. How wonderful -- and you are still making music together, I'll bet.

  2. Bill,

    This yearbook photo makes me want to ask--do you happen to know how copyright would affect me scanning and posting something similar?

    Also, what about how copyright would affect my ability to post transcribed letters sent to my relatives in the 1940s? I haven't been able to track down any of the letter writers or their descendants. Your thoughts? Thanks,

    Marian

  3. I am certainly not a copyright expert, so, I cannot comment. There are many factors involved, I'm sure.

  4. Gosh Bill, you haven't changed! Nice to look back, and I remember the dress styles. You must have a great voice.

  5. Good for blending with my partner... Andy was the one with the "great voice!" ;-)

  6. I made the dress I have on in Home Economics that year. I remember very well because I cut out two right front top pieces and had to go and buy more material to cut out the correct piece to finish the dress. Great memories

  7. I'm sure this was a memorable time. Do you still sing?

  8. Only in groups at family gatherings, thank goodness. The breath control left many years ago. Sang in church choirs over the years, of course.
    Thanks for asking! ;-)
