ISOMATA Festival Choir Summer 1983

Isomata Festival Choir, Summer 1983 (cassette).

This was the first year that ISOMATA didn't make a vinyl LP recording of its concert program. Instead, they recorded each group separately on cassette. I only have the recording made of the Festival Choir.

I, Roger M. Wilcox, sang in the tenor section in this program.
