Ward-Belmont Students and Faculty who Preformed During that First Broadcast:
At the conclusion of Philip Gordon’s performance, the audience in the auditorium was dismissed and a series of pieces were performed by Ward-Belmont’s students and faculty. Miss. Katheryn Kirkham, a former Ward-Belmont student who was the Assistant of Musical Sciences in 1922, sang two songs accompanied by Mr. Lawrence Goodman, who was a piano teacher at Ward-Belmont.
