"A group of Herron School of Art students gathered to make a little music in 1941."
Winning Entry: Bill Orme- "The 3d verse of "Ain't Gonna Study War No More" was suddenly interrupted by this bulletin from the White House..."
The 3d verse of "Ain't Gonna Study War No More" was suddenly interrupted by this bulletin from the White House . . . .
Far out guys and dolls! I think this could be the start of something keen in schools everywhere... They could call this music class and cats all over can learn to read and play music!
Powerbrows McSmiley is the only one to notice that Roger Squints is delivering the "goose" to Mrs. Neil Young ... well besides her, of course.
Yes, Mom and Dad, this is what I am spending your money on!
Herron students once again prove that "art is cool" no matter what the genre.
Given that we've already finished the last batch of Sun King's Wee Muckle, why don't we continue to PAR-TEE by making music with whatever we can grab and staring at different places in the room!
Herron students gather to perform the revered ritual known as Orthodontic Serenade, a traditional ceremony designed to celebrate the joy of overnight retainers. This month's honoree, Becky Lee Higginbotham (center), joins in the musical festivities with her ukelele as she is unable to actually open her mouth to sing. (Editor's note: The student at the far left, Maryellen Shtup, is only pretending to be playing the harmonica. There were none left by the time she arrived, late as usual.)
Sometimes Herron students have to break out their ukeleles, harmonicas, boaters, and saddle-shoes to exercise their "inner nerds."
Bob Dylan's mother makes an interesting discovery when her harmonica gets stuck in her orthodontic appliance.
