Central Catholic High School, Toledo Ohio - South Entrance
The event was the CCHS Music Hall of Fame banquet.
Mellow Yellow Shot
Still Feelin' The Music
The alumni band performed the Alma Mater and the CCHS Victory march, which you might recognize as the Notre Dame fight song. Yes, we too are the Fighting Irish!
That's the yellow brass bell of my euphonium, just right of center, sticking up behind the head of the lady in black, playing the clarinet.
Another Mellow Yellow Shot
Jerry DePrisco, CCHS Music Director, 1955 -1974
The Alumni Glee Club performed their signature tune, May the Lord Bless You and Keep You.
Each of the eight HoF indictees, from classes of 1950(!) through the stellar 1983 group performed a song. Some seriously word-class talent was on display. Todd Fournier (83) is touring with Frankie Valli as one of The Four Seasons, Jill Bonczak (83) has been member of the Lyric Opera of Chicago for 18 years, and pianist Larry Fuller (83) has performed everywhere.
It was an awesome night, and for me a very emotional experience.
