A formal tribute to Duey

Ball

By ARNOLD WHITE
They stepped out onto the
stage of Hill Aud. bright and
confident, shoes shining, arms
swinging proudly, tuxes in place.
The Michigan Men's Glee Club,
in concert last night, presented
"White Tie and Tails"; and it
was a fitting farewell to their
director of 22 years, Philip A.
Duey.
The performance o f f e r e d
nothing really new, but the
group relied on its successful
formula of fine singing and
pleasant entertainment to keep
the audience smiling.
After the traditional "Laudes
atque Carmina," 'director Duey's
program mixed classical selec-
tions from all ages with many
19th century romantic selec-
tions in the first half.
Martin Luther's "A Mighty
Fortress is Our God" began with
tenors singing pianissimo, grow-
ing to full chorus with the har-
monies of the hymn.
The concert focused on Philip
Duey before the intermission.
Recalling good memories of his
twenty-two year service to the
University and reminiscing just
a little, he gave us a song,
Hoagy Carmichael's "Old Rock-'
ing Chair."
1 '

Duey's opera-quality voice has
hardly been tarnished by the
years. It was good that, after
so many years of directing oth-
ers in Hill Auditorium, he snonld
sing once himself.
A long medley, named "Of
Thee We Sing," was all Broad-
way. Mixing hits from the '50's
and '60's, the Glee Club offered
Cole Porter's "I Get a Kick Out.
of You" among the eight se-..
lections.
The group has an excellent
medley technique. They blended
the various songs smoothly,
closing with the favorite "Thank
Heaven for Little Girls."
The main body of the Club
took a rest while the eight-mem-
ber Friars took the stage. Open-
ing with a soft dreamy tune,
they recalled famous dance
crazes of the past in a novelty
number complete with Friar
color about the rhumba.j
The Friars are known for the
popular song parodies, in past
years taking on the Beatles and
the Temptations. Last night
Tommy 'Roe was the target.
With all the possible sweetness
they smiled through "I'm so
Dizzy."
The finale of the evening

featured Michigan Songs, Mich-
igan and University enthusiasm
and spirit over the years were
displayed in "I Want to Go
Back to Michigan," "Michigan{
Men," and "Go Blue."
Of course, "Hail to the Vic-
tors" and "The ' Yellow and the
Blue" closed the program. Di-
rector Philip Duey needs no
praise here; his list of accom-
plishments has made him well-
known, and last night's stand-
ing ovation was a*proper tribute.
