As chairman of the music department and director of choral activities at Price Lab School for 28 years, Dr. Les Hale set a standard for musical performance that his many students carried with them as they moved into careers as professional musicians or pursued other fields of study. For over two decades he collaborated with Kenneth Butzier on many productions including Annie Get your Gun
, South Pacific, Guys and Dolls
and Fiddler on the Roof
. Hale and Butzier also collaborated on the Madrigal Dinners that featured the dramatic and musical performances of students from Price Laboratory School.
