Feature P.-T. A. Meet
•Mother Singers” will make their first appearance at an annual con
tention of the Texas Congress of Mothers and Parent-Teacher Associa
tions in Waco, November 18-21, when Mrs. F. h. Jaccard of Fort Worth.
State Music chairman of the organixation, will direct groups of singers
from different parts of Texas in singing selections such as "Bridal Cho
“wn me "itose Maiden' by;
Cowen and songs from the National
Bong Sheet. This movement to have
“Mother Singers” at the twenty
flrst convention of the Texas Con
gress is part of the plan of the Na
tional chairman of Music, who, ac
cording to Mrs. Jaccard, has urged
the formation of groups of “Mo
ther Singers” in each council and
local and has asker that singing be
made a part of every regular meet
“I am hoping to have,” said Mrs.
Jaccard, "a real ‘sing-song’ at our
atate convention, and have asked the
parent-teacher units in the state
that have choruses that might at
tend as a unit or in part to notify
me at once. We have gradually
built up a real department I feel,
and I believe the time has aome
when we should demonstrate our
value to the Congress. From all
over the state have come reports of
the work of the music chairman.
Our own chorus in Fort Worth has
been very helpful on many occa
sions and is planning real work for
this coming season.”
The following choruses have been
selected to be learned by all “mo
ther singers” during the year 1929
"Sing Praise to God. the Lord ’—
"The Throstle”—W. Berwald.
"Where Go the Boats”—Channing
"Drowsily Come the Sheep”—Dav
“My Lover is a Fisherman”—Lily
