Wesley Junior College Concerts in Dover






















Earle Blakeslee was the guest soloist in the auditorium of the People's Church for this March 30, 1950 concert in Dover DE. The show was presented by Wesley Junior College Chorale. The back of the poster tells us a little about Mr. Blakeslee: A tenor of unusual warmth and charm, Earle Blakeslee combines a high degree of vocal ability with expert musicianship--and accomplishment which stands him in good stead in his dual role of singer and conductor of chorus and orchestra.

How about this one:

Lots of opportunities for Dover folks to mingle and have a nice time.

A special thank you to Bob -- he located a dear object, something my husband did not know existed about his father, who passed away tragically in 1999. It is a real treasure to us and he made it available at a reasonable cost and extremely easy. Thank you a million for your thoughtfulness to strangers, located many miles away.
