Withrow coverAs many of you know, “Smittie” used many successful numbers repeatedly over the many years of The Minstrels. This 2 CD set is comprised of various numbers performed in each year 1950-1965. It includes end-men routines and Smittie’s 1965 farewell. It plays much like a real show.

The Alumni Association is indebted to Steve Martin ’63 who produces these CDs and donates all proceeds to The Withrow Musical Scholarship Fund. He has dubbed these CDs from original reel-to-reel tapes provided by Smittie’s family.

These items ship from Steve’s location in Arizona. He can be contacted by email here

Here’s what the distinguished Principal Oboist of The Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra had to say about this collection:

“Thank you so much for sending the Withrow Minstrels 1950-1965 2 CD set . It is a great package that certainly brings back those heady days and does justice to the indomitable spirit and Herculean efforts Smittie put forth every year for us and for the school . People still talk about the Minstrels , and it is clear that each of us came away with something that in one way or another changed us for the better . Gratefully ,
Richard Johnson, ’63”

Here’s just a sampling of the comments from those who acquired these CDs:

“Being in the pony chorus, the choir in Kismet, and twirling my baton in the finale to “We are the Minstreleers” was all brought back by listening to the CD. We were all so fortunate to have had this wonderful experience. My husband said that he didn’t think I ever got over being a part of Smittie’s Minstrel’s. I think that is true for anyone who had participated in the show in any way.”

“Thank you so much for making this CDavailable. I know it involved a tremendous amount of work! I will be listening to it and remembering over and over!”
