Ann Arbor High School - Cantando Choir, April 1944 image

"Cantando Choir" was the name selected for a newly organized group of girls singing under Miss Grentzer's baton. Starting at the beginning of the second semester, the choir met every day. It had quite a sizable list of members chosen on the same basis as that of A Cappella; that is, by try-outs.

Besides participating in the operetta, assemblies and community programs, the group presented entertainment - music and skits - for the men of the station hospital at the Willow Run Air Base.

Cantando's officers were Jerry Herman, manager, Dottie Dice, assistant manager; and Mary Kokales, secretary-treasurer.
