INews Uection Fage A' TliE OBSERVER EDITION OF OUR SUNDAY VISITOR Sunday, February 11, 1951 r 4 Richard Give Concert St. Edward's Elgin- Richard Kroeger, well ]~nown singer from Elgin, and the St. Edward High School Choral Club, will appear in a benefit con- cert on Sunday evening, February 18, in the new St. Edward audi- torium. This concert should be especially interesting to the public because Mr. Kroeger is a graduate of St. Edward high and has returned this year as a singing instructor. Many of his voice students will be with the chorus which will sing a group of numbers and reappear with the soloist in the final program song. This chorus will be heard again on Passion Sunday in the oratorio, "The Crucifixion." Although the young bass-bari- tone has appeared professionally in over forty states, Sunday will be the first time that most music lovers in this diocese have had an opportunity of hearing him in a full-length concert in his home town. He has been hailed by the press as " . . . a greatly talented young artist with a majestic voice and a fine knowledge of how to handle it." The New York maga- zine The Musician, stated: "Mr Kroeger's beautiful voice and ex- ceUent diction contributed much to the best moments of the re- cital." The singer has appeared in al- most every medium of show busi- ness: concert, radio, oratorio, ly- ceum, musicals, night clubs, and recently made his television debut on WGN-TV. He is now in re- hearsal with the "White Guards," a male quintette which is recog- nized as one of the finest organi- zations in the night-club field. The group is composed of five excellent soloists from New York and Chi- ago. Ray Brebec, also of the music faculty of St. Edward's, will con- duct the forty voiced chorus, and Constance Kroeger, sister of th~ soloist, will be the accompanist. Tickets for the concert can be had RELIEF FUND DRIVE His Holiness Pope Plus XII, on Ash Wednesday, addressed the Catholic School children of the United States in his annual Lenten message, which marked the opening of the 1951 Campaign of the Bishops" Fund for Victims of War, in the parochial schools through- out the country.
