By Roger Lee Hall
(PineTree Productions)

A multimedia DVD only available here,
of particular interest to those interested
in the history of Otto Kahn's magnificent castle
and Eastern Military Academy which was operating there
from the 1940s to 1970s.


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 living at OHEKA while he attended EMA, with additional information about OHEKA Castle over the years.

In addition, there are many, including when he was the musical guest at the OHEKA Castle Garden Party in 2004.
