Radio Announcer's Track before VFMA Band Performance with the Philadelphia Orchestra

 

Radio broadcast of the 1812 Overture with the Philadelphia Orchestra

 

 

These have been digitized by Daniel J. Witter, Ph. D., and VFMA Band Alumnus. Thank you!

From Dan Witter:

 

"Well, I trust ... that there are 9 tracks in your directory, the first 7 of which were from a Fall concert 1969. This may have been the first concert that Captain Youngs recorded of the concert band. He helped John Hoffman and Bruce Daggett with recordings of the Jazz Band starting in 1968 (I think) but recording concert band performances wasn’t customary prior to 1969 and Captain Young’s initiative.


"Track 8 is the announcer’s intro to the live radio broadcast of the Philly Orchestra & VF performance of 1812 on Jan 27, 1970 (I think was the exact date); 70th anniversary of the orchestra and Ormandy’s 70th birthday. As I recall, President Nixon attended the performance. And Track 09 is the actual performance."

 

Thank you so much, Dan Witter, for bringing me these concert recordings and those of the broadcast from the Academy of Music!
