WHS Digitized '68-'71 Choral Albums Now Available

Rick Moore and Donnelly Fenn are very glad to announce that the digitization of the 4 two-record album sets from ’68 – ’71 are nearly completed. All 100+ songs are now on one CD as MP3 files.

Contact Rick Moore at: for payment & delivery info. Or message me on FB that you are interested and want to be part of making this happen.

Several singers from those years already have contacted Rick to request copies. Our original recording engineer, Wes Dooley of Audio Engineering Associates in Pasadena, has digitized and cleaned-up the recordings to the highest quality standards.

All proceeds collected will go entirely to cover the cost of digitizing and distributing the music to those persons that have contributed, with any addition monies contributed to the WHS Choral Music Program. We need your help to pass the word along to those with whom you may still be in touch.

Here's what one ex-singer had to say:
"Just spent a wonderful morning listening to the CD I just got of the 72 and 73 recordings, and sharing it with my daughter and granddaughter. I thought it was just my imagination and fond to how good our choir and choral groups sounded: but my daughter just keeps saying, this is so good, these voices are so beautiful. Thanks again for the memories and all you gave to all of your students at West."

Thank you,
Donnelly Fenn & Rick Moore (Class of ’80)

  Salty breezes sweeping o'er us.

Cries of gulls and terns on high.

Purple cast of distant mountains,

On the far horizon lie.

Hearts united in one purpose,

Hands clasped strongly in one tie,

We salute our Alma Mater,

Staunch defenders of West High.

It is with sadness that I write to you to add to the site that Pamela Morelli Pagel has passed away on September 23, 2016 in Colorado Springs, CO. Survived by her husband Roger and her 3 boys, Tyler (24), Stephen (21) and Christopher (17).

Dear Warriors,

My beautiful and beloved sister Lynne Lester passed away in her sleep this morning.
Lynne's spirit and amazing attitude throughout her battle with cancer was truly inspirational.
Lynne was the class of "77" ASB President. She was one of the hardest working people I know and won awards for her work in the media industry. Her friends and colleagues are numerous and supported Lynne with love and affection throughout her battle.

I am so lucky and proud to have been her brother.
I am heartbroken that she is gone and miss her immensely already.

I see her spirit and love for life in my kids whom she loved so much as if they were her own.

God Bless my sister and may she rest in peace.

Her eternally grateful brother,

Steve Lester

Sadly Mr. Kreiswirth passed away on 9/6/14 according to his obit in the Daily a Breeze. An amazing artist and teacher! Sir Elton John purchased his artwork for himself as a birthday gift!

Does anyone know who is incharge of putting the Archive together for the Friday night gathering? I've found some stuff from the 1960's (handbook, Pics, Warrior Ways) that I could mail to be displayed if interested. Contact me.

Dan Lefebvre, 1967

Just a note to all of you who I was able to connect and talk with at the "50th". Trish and I had a great time, and it was such a joy to see many of you again after this many years. I wished that I would have been able to talk with more of you. The Friday night sing-a-long with Mr. Fenn was so much fun, and it brought back so many memories, and was a great reminder of why I chose music as a career and why I love to sing so much. Thank you again, and I hope to see you soon (maybe 5yrs from now).


One question; Did we have a "fight Song"?
