Additional Details:
On the Missouri Pacific. Lindsborg, Kansas, with a population of about 2,000 located on the St. Louis-Kansas City-Colorado line of the Missouri Pacific, 221 miles west of Kansas City, was recently said to be "the most musical town in America." Every Easter week "The Messiah" is rendered by a great chorus selected from the inhabitants of this little city. The chorus is assisted by one of the best symphony orchestras in America, such as the New York Philharmonic or the Boston Symphony and some of the greatest operatic stars of the age. Mme. Galli-Curei and Ysaye assisted at the 1917 festival. The members of this chorus have been trained from early youth and sing not as a chorus but as one great voice. Music lovers from all parts of the central West visit Lindsborg for this annual event.
