Hour Of Charm Orchestra

Hour of Charm features Phil Spitalny and His Hour of Charm All Girl Orchestra and Choir with Evelyn and "Her Magic Violin".  Evelyn actually "magically" helped form the all-girl orchestra by auditioning over 1000 female performers.  Twenty-two piece charming female musicians were members, all of whom played multiple instruments and sang in the choir.  The idea of an all female orchestra and choir was a novelty at the time and the show was a success.

Hour of CharmAll members of the All Girl Orchestra and Choir had to sign a contract to remain unmarried for two years.  Even Phil and the magical violinist Evelyn had to wait and eventually married and retired to Florida.
