The LMC was recently featured in an article by Town Hall‘s Jonathan Shipley. The weekly blog – called “What Are People Doing?” – highlights historical articles from The Town Crier, an arts magazine published in Seattle from 1910 through 1938. As one of the leading musical organizations of the time, the LMC appeared frequently in the Town Crier. Shipley’s article highlights a concert that was presented by the LMC featuring soprano Anna Fitziu and bass Andres de Segurola in a joint concert on October 7th, 1918. Check out the full October 5th “What Are People Doing” post and other fun blast-from-the-past Town Crier highlights in The Town Hall Seattle Blog.
