Humble Beginnings
Humble Beginnings
In its first years, Whitworth College didn’t have an orchestra due to its small size. In 1927, Professor Hussong, dean of the college, began to piece together a motley group with only three string players, as well as two saxophones, a cornet, and a piano. Although it was not a standard musical group, Hussong immediately immersed his students into the musical world, and the group was well-known for their performances with the Whitworth Glee Club and their local radio performances.
