The May Women's Guild meeting featured John Lange, OPRC Bass Choir Soloist, accompanied by Stewart Holmes, OPRC Music Director, in a program entitled, "Songs From Around the World". John's selection of music ranged from operatic songs from Germany, Italy and France, to Show Tunes and Broadway Plays. John's rich baritone voice was a delight and the selections demonstrated his wide range of voice. Interspersed with humor and background information about the music resulted in a delightful afternoon of entertainment.
The Meeting began with some announcements, devotions by Joan Ladd, and the lunch which consisted of chicken francese, peas and carrots, mashed potatoes and salad, followed by cake for dessert.
The theme for this year's Women's Guild Programs is "This is My Father's World". So appropriately the musical program today began with the audience singing the first verse and ending with the singing the the second verse.
The sheet music for "This is My Father's World" is shown below on the left and our guests, John Lange and Stewart Holmes, are shown on the right.
