StoryCorps: John Hornbeck and Jackie Hornbeck-Wall

Dec 3, 2013

Jackie Hornbeck-Wall and John Hornbeck at StoryCorps

John Hornbeck has 6 grandchildren, and he has written lullabies for each child. Hornbeck was a high school chorus director for many years, but his interest in singing wasn’t always so serious. In the StoryCorps booth, John told his daughter Jackie the story of how he first joined his high school’s chorus.

This story was recorded in partnership with the Atlanta History Center, which hosts Atlanta’s StoryCorps booth.
