TranscriptDe Paur Infantry Chorus In Concert Here Tonight

The Dc Paur all-Negro Infantry chorus will
be featured in the Community Concert's second presentation of the season in Shryock Auditorium at 8 p.m. today.
The chorus started in a New Jersey army camp during World War II. After four years 0f army
service, it became a concert unit.
Its reportoire includes folk songs and Negro spirituals as well as other concert arrangements.
Describing a De Paur performance, Newsweek Magazine said
In light tan battle jacket and black dress trousers, the chorus makes an outstanding visual impression. Vocally it is even more impressive, for de Paur has trained his men brilliantly and they sing as if they like to sing straight out and with distinctive tone quality."
