Choir Gives Exciting Christmas Program
By Frankie Smith
The concert was an over
whelming success. An estimated
1,000 persons attending said so.
They expressed their feelings
by their applause during the
program and with their words
after the program.
This all happened at Fries
Auditorium Sunday, Dec. 13
when the Winston-Salem State
College choir under the direc
tion of Dr. James A. Dillard pre
sented its annual Christmas con
cert. Campus students, city stu
dents, city residents and visitors
from neighboring cities and
states came to hear the singers
perform.
The 60 members of the choir
sang with the voices like those
of the angels who sang at the
first Christmas. Blended with
the harmony and sweetness of
the voices was the beautifully
arranged background scene of
the Nativity on a starlit night.
This scene depicted the Vir
gin Mary and Child with Joseph
and the angels watching over
them. Persons in the nativity
scene included Oraetta Beavers
as Mary and James Smith as
Joseph.
Highlighting the works pre
sented on program was Bach’s
“Motet No. 6,” a lively piece
done in German with exclama
tions of praise to God and many
alleluias. Featured as soloists in
various selections were:
Madelyne Guilford, soprano
for Hoggard’s “Gloria in Excel-
sis,” Deitra Eaton, alto; Gloria
Barringer and Johnnie Jones,
sopranos, and William McGill,
tenor, all in Ringwald’s “The
Christmas Story.”
The Christmas Story was more
dramatic because of the narra
tor. Robert V. Carson. Jr., the
lighting, and of course, the ex
pressions and interpretations
given by the singers.
Other works performed by the
choir were Mendelssohn’s “Be
hold! God the Lord Passed By”
from “Elijah,” Lee’s “The Face
of Moses Shone’’ and Parry’s
"There Is an Old Belief.”
The Rev. Henry S. Lewis. Jr..
college chaplain, closed the pro
gram with benediction.

Argument
Iphigenia, the daughter of
Clytemnestra and Agamemnon,
has been summoned by her fath
er to the island of Aulis under
the pretext that she is to marry
the Greek hero. Achilles. She is
actually being summoned to be
sacrificed to the goddess Arte
mis so that the Greek army may
be granted favorable winds to
sail for Troy.
Agamemnon repents his rash
act and writes a second letter
telling Clytemnestra not to
bring the girl. The brother,
Menelaus. in whose behalf the
war is to be fought, and who is
burning for revenge for his wife
Helen’s going to Troy, waylays
the messenger carrying the sec
ond note.
In the meantime, not only
Iphigenia but also her mother
comes to Aulis. When Clytem
nestra greets the unsuspecting
Achilles as her futiu-e son-in-
law, he is dumbfounded, and
the deceit of Agamemnon is dis
closed.
Clytemnestra is enraged; Ach
illes, incensed at being made a
pawn of Agamemnon’s deceit,
resolves to defend Iphigenia
against those ready to sacrifice
her. At this turn of events, Iphi
genia proves her loyalty and
courage: since the safety of the
Greeks depends upon the sacri
fice, she is ready to die for her
country.
This play is an adaptation by
Dr. Patterson of the Gilbert
^lurray translation.
