This Melody Masters short (WB number 6803) opens in the class room with Robert Mitchell leading the boys in several songs. The other half of the day has the boys, as members of a local Boy Scout troupe, hiking along singing some rousing renditions of some old traditional songs, and then participating in a wiener roast.

Talented boy singers get a chance to demonstrate their musical abilities...
The Robert Mitchell Boy Choir is given the spotlight during this short subject which shows him working with them on various songs. They later appeared in Bing Crosby's GOING MY WAY.
Mitchell is seated at the piano in a classroom setting where the boys attend regular classes during the morning but are then turned over to Mitchell for hours of practice while he rehearses them.
Reminds me of the many hours I spent with choirs as a youth and as an adult. Some of the songs covered: "If You Would Like To Lose Your Blues," "Home on the Range," "My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean," and "Shortnin' Bread." A pleasant short subject showing America during a more innocent era.
