45th Anniversary of the Senior Choir program

Date
1985-01-12
Description
Four audio cassettes. Recording of the 45th anniversary program for the senior choir of the Gethsemane Missionary Baptist Church. The program consisted of traditional gospel and spiritual songs. A malfunctioning microphone caused some distortion and feedback on the recording. In Winter 1985, the Bureau contracted with two folklorists to conduct a folk arts survey of the St. Johns River basin in northeastern Florida. The St. Johns River is the largest and most used river in Florida, supporting much river commerce as well as a modest amount of commercial fishing. Folklorists Mary Anne McDonald and Kathleen Figgen conducted the survey from January through March 1985 under the direction of Folklife Coordinator Blanton Owen and Bureau Chief Ormond Loomis. Documentation compiled in the survey was used to prepare and present the 'St. Johns River Basin Folklife Area' at the 1985 Florida Folk Festival.
