TUESDAY, DECEMBER 16, 1952 THE HOLLAND, MICHIGAN, EVENING SENTINEL. BAGE THREE Orchestra to Wear New Uniforms for Concert For the first time in its history, Holland Junior high school orchestra will appear in uniform Thursday night at its Christmas concert. The concert will begin at 7:30 p.m. in Holland high school auditorium. The public is invited. The program will feature orchestral selections played by the all-city grade, Junior high school and Senior high school orchestra. Members of the Junior high gr»up will wear grey, red and white uniforms while the all-city grade orchestra will appear in dark blue and white. Much credit for the uniforms goes to parents of the young musicians, who "made or purchased the outfits. Carleton Kelch, who directs the two musical groups, considers this a motivating, effort which-will do much to stimulate children to join the orchestral program in schools. the Holland public Mr. Kelch has placed the Junior high orchestra into class A competition at the district level this year.
