One of the albums that I will make available for sharity this Christmas Season is from the Mooseheart Children's Choir. I don't yet have the equipment for sharity, but the album is pictured here and I want to give a little background.
The Child City of Mooseheart is an incredible place. It's an orphanage and much more. Mooseheart sits on more than 1000 acres out west of Chicago. It was started in 1913 as a place for orphaned children of men of the Loyal Order of Moose. Kids are raised from infancy through graduation from High School on campus. They are raised in single family style houses rather than in dormitories. Like it says on the jacket, Mooseheart boys and girls receive the finest medical care, ample recreational facilities and an opportunity to develop their individual talents. The Mooseheart Choir appeared on nationwide radio through the Mutual Broadcasting System on Christmas Day, 1957. The program received such acclaim that it continued to run in subsequent years and eventually resulted in this incredible record.
