Fantasia Continued from page 51 "Pinnochio" for the choir mem- bers, but they were sold out at area theatres. "He apologized for not having enough tickets, then he treated us to a private showing with him," she said. The college students loved the experience. They worked under world-renowned conductor Leopold Stokowski whom they found to be as charming and kind as Disney. The visionary conduc- tor directed the choir voices so they would balance with different orchestral instruments at specific. times in the score, and voices and orchestra were recorded on tracks that are piped through different speakers in movie theatres. The orchestral music was recorded separately in Philadelphia. "That's what gives the effect of being surrounded by music, with different sounds coming from all sides," Herman explained. Herman's collection of pictures from the studio experience in- clude those of Disney and Stokowski. Once the choir's work was done, the students returned to classes and Herman graduated that spring. She went to a job as a church musician in Cleveland, and it was there that she finally saw the finished full-length cartoon of "Fantasia." And yes, she loved the finished product. After she and her hus- band had two sons, they were in- troduced to the movie, and as adults with children of their own, they have their own copies of the movie. A musical life Herman was never again in- volved in the world of Hollywood and the movies, but music re- mained a central part of her life. She only retired from teaching voice and piano two years ago. And her "fill-in" jobs in area churches often stretched into a year or two of work. "I taught voice and piano for 55 years," she said, "and I absolutely loved it. The one-on-one work with a student is so rewarding." She only let her students go when she started spending some winter time in Florida. She and her late husband both worked for du Pont Co. for years in northern Delaware, and Her- man moved to Lewes 13 years ago. With a son in Newark and one in Centreville, Md., she is not far from family and gets to see grandchildren playing sports and graduating. A move may be in her future, but for now, she is concentrating on enjoying the summer and sell- ing the grand piano that occupies much of her living room. The Hamills are very pleased with the welcome that customers and visitors gave to Herman. The reception was non-stop, but they loved it for her sake and for the at- tention that it brought to their gallery and to Lewes. Mike Hamill said that the recep- tions bring in friends and regular customers, but they are also con- tinually amazed at the variety of people who are fans and collectors of Disney art. It took the couple 18 months of interviewing and visiting to get the gallery located in a small town such as Lewes, but they find that their local cus- tomers are matched by those from out of the area who come to buy and to have their purchases framed. There are only 100 Dis- ney animation galleries in the world. "Lewes is listed there with Lon- don, New York, Amsterdam and Washington, D.C.," he said. "Our gallery is only three years old, and we are in the top 10 percent in sales. I give Vickie's framing tal- ent the credit. People from all over come or send their work to have her frame it." Hamill is a pilot in the Air Force, and his work frequently takes him away from home, but Vickie is usually busy in the gallery. The gallery features special is- sues of art from Disney that are not seen in Disney toy and gift stores. Each year, the studios send 100 to 200 pieces of special art to I l The 3 L'S in Real Estate!
