In Memory of Jacqueline Polk


Jacqueline Polk (1926 – 2014)

The Middle Tennessee Choral Society lost a good friend and supporter on Monday, February 17 when  Jacqueline Polk, sister of our General Manager, Kay Garrison, passed away.  A resident of Prentiss Mississippi, Jackie was a lovely person, an enthusiastic and encouraging friend of Choral Society and a generous supporter of the Orpheus Vocal Competition since its beginning in 1996.   Her beautiful smile will be missed by all who knew her.

This most beloved work in the Western choral literature is said to have brought King George II himself to his feet at the “Hallelujah!” An English-language oratorio composed in 1741 by George Frideric Handel, with a scriptural text compiled by Charles Jennens from the King James Bible, and from the Psalms included with the Book of Common Prayer.
