The music being played in Windows Media Player (below), are highlights from the St. Philip Basilica High School Concert Band & Glee Club, and Providence High School Chorus, May 1962 Annual Concert at Orchestra Hall, Chicago.

It has been digitally captured (but not re-mastered), from the original vinyl recording, made available to members of the band, glee club & chorus, after the conclusion of the concert, but it is only half of the original concert.

We'd like to add the other half of the concert, but at present, it is not available to us. If you know of any members of the band, glee club or Providence chorus, who still have their original recordings, please have them contact the alumni association. We'd like to borrow them for "capture."


Likewise, we'd also like to obtain (borrow) recordings from any other concerts, to add to this music library, and make available to fellow alumni and the women of the Providence High School chorus.

Currently, CDs of what we have, are available at our annual banquet, in both standard CD and mp3 formats, for a nominal reproduction fee, including slim line jewel case & SPBHS logo insert. Contact the alumni association, if you're interested in ordering one.

You may also "download" any of the individual selections in the mp3 format, simply by "right clicking" the appropriate selection below, and then clicking "save target as."
