Description

A recording of a bilingual concert by the Orphéon Chorale, a prominent Franco-American musical society, Christmas, 1962. The concert was sponsored by the Bates Manufacturing Company, Lewiston's largest employer and textile manufacturer. The recording was made for radio broadcast, probably on Lewiston's WCOU.
