David Hunsberger’s photos are normally more well-composed. But it appears he saw the expression of expectation and joy on the face of music teacher Doris Moyer and he couldn’t wait to capture it. She grew up in Pennsylvania and taught at Rockway Mennonite Collegiate in Kitchener, Ont., in 1954, when this photo was taken. With her husband, Harold Good, she was a founding member of the Menno Singers choral group. Following a long career teaching music in numerous places, she passed away in Virginia in May of this year.
