Named in Honor of Otis M. Carrington

— (1884 - 1964) —

Otis M. Carrington is best remembered as one of the world's foremost composers of operettas for children. In 1912, Mr. Carrington wrote "The Windmills of Holland". It was the first of more than forty operettas to come from his hand, and led American music critics like Harold Rogers of the Christian Science Monitor to call him "The Leader of the Operatic Field of Educational Music".

Mr. Carrington joined the teaching staff at Sequoia High School in 1907 as the art and music instructor, and went on to head the school's music department he developed (with its famous choral programs, including The Treble Clef), teaching an unprecedented forty-three years.

Between 1923 and 1945 student productions of his operettas were standard fare at Sequoia High and at Redwood City elementary schools. Sequoia was the testing ground for his work. Carrington and B.E. Myers, an instructor in the Commercial Arts Department at Sequoia, published and distributed the work as Myers and Carrington, School Operettas. The success of these children's operettas in evidenced by their over twenty five thousand presentations worldwide.
