Several Sinfonians were involved in the Fall Tour of the Delta Singers.
Lyndell Watkins, Robert Calder, Donna McHenry, and George Muns DISCUSS "MESSIAH" PERFORMANCE—Dr. Robert Calder (with baton), director of Tuesday night's presentation of "The Messiah" at Delta State College, goes over the score with two soloists (right) Miss Donna McHenry, soprano, and Dr. George Muns, bass, and with the organist (left) Lyndell Watkins.  All are members of the DSC music department.  The joint presentation by the Delta State choir and area musicians is an annual event.
One of Sinfonia's projects was the responsibility for programs at some basketball games.  Advertisements were sold, programs printed and distributed. Sinfonians also served as ushers at other events.
One, two, three, FIRE!—DSC's ever popular "pep band" has gained much popularity in the last few years for their efforts at boosting spirit through music.  Here the band prepares to execute another swinging version of "Tennessee Waltz."

Fantasticks Photo THIS PLUM IS TOO RIPE is the thought in this scene from the Delta Players' production of "The Fantasticks," opening tomorrow night at 8 in Broom Auditorium.  The Mute, played by David Ely (right) is casting a glance toward Luisa (not shown), as her boyfriend Matt, played by Billy Spencer, looks on.  The Mute has the unique character of not saying a word, and at the same time, demonstrating many of the major props.  Story on page 1.
