Description: Photograph of a group of older men and women singing inside St. Phillips Hall in El Campo, Texas. The front row is composed of women in traditional Danish costumes: crochet-trim aprons tied at the waist over black dresses, black bonnets tied around the neck, and long-sleeved white shirts. They are singing from sheets of music that they hold near their chests. They have been identified, from left to right, as Marie Bram, Ingeborgh Berndt Atchetee, Helena Berndt Lauritsen, Gudrun Jensen, and Lillian Roberts. There are four men in the back. They too hold red pieces of paper. They have been identified, from left to right, as Fred Swendsen, Andrew Enemark Berndt, Pastor Eric Moller, and Otto Harton. The top of a Christmas tree is behind them, as well as a drop-down projection screen, a green wreath, and a clock off to the left.
