MEMORIES OF OHEKA
By Roger Lee Hall
A multimedia computer disc only available here,
of particular interest to Eastern Military Academy Alumni
and those interested in the history of Otto Kahn's magnificent castle
In celebration of the 60th anniversary of songwriter Roger Lee Hall's first year at Eastern Military Academy (EMA) in 1952, he has prepared this special remembrance on a multi-media disc playable on any computer with Microsoft Word or compatible software program.
He tells his fond memories spent at EMA, in what was once the magnificent castle of wealthy banker, Otto Hermann Kahn, and named O-HE-KA after the initials of his name.
Roger's years at EMA were among the most rewarding ones of his youth because it was the first step in his later music career, which has lasted over 50 years. It all began when he sang in the EMA Lower School Glee Club and learned to appreciate the joys of singing.
Later he began his songwriting career and eventually became an ASCAP composer. One of his songs, "The Soho Serenade" is available as a download from CD Baby.
The computer disc contains over 100 files, including his stories about EMA, with many pictures, and additional information he has compiled about OHEKA Castle over the years.
In addition, there are many other pictures, including when he was the musical guest at the OHEKA Castle Garden Party in 2004.
R.I.P. Frank L. Scalia, 1937-2015
Past President of the Eastern Military Academy Alumni Association
