Deutschendorf to sing at March 22 60+ session

Singer Dave Deutschendorf and pianist-photographer Joann Nickel will entertain with a variety of songs and photographs during a presentation titled ?How Great Thou Art? at the Tabor College Learning in Retirement Program, beginning at 9:45 a.m. Monday, March 22, in the rehearsal hall of the Wohlgemuth Music Education Center.

Deutschendorf, a bass vocalist from Newton, is a retired high school counselor who sings in the central Kansas-based Hearts for Him and the Missouri-based Christie Minstrels.

He will be accompanied by Nickel, an accomplished pianist and photographer from Goessel, who loves to set hymns to projected slides.

Deutschendorf and wife Arva both attended Tabor College. They recently returned home to Newton after living in Colorado and traveling the country in a recreational vehicle.

According to Connie Isaac, LRP coordinator, ?Dave has the distinction of being the uncle of the late popular singer and composer John Denver, whose real name was John Deutschendorf. John?s father, Henry, was Dave?s oldest brother. And Dave?s mother was the ?Grandma? John sang about in songs like ?Grandma?s Feather Bed.??

The public is welcome to attend all Learning in Retirement programs. Fees are $3 per session or $15 per semester ($28 per couple). Registration and discount cards for lunch in the cafeteria will be available at the door during the half hour before the meeting.
