O'Brien Likes Style
Of Old Musicals
By H. NEIL BERKSON
Jack O'Brien, Grad, writer-star
f this year's MUSKET, is a man
ith a purpose.
"I am an advocate of a great
eal of what went into the old
musical comedy," O'Brien says. He
xplains that it is primarily the
Liows of the twenties, thirties and
artles, which provide our musi-
In these shows plot was rela-
ively unimportant, made to fit
Lie music. With the coming of
such shows as "Oklahoma," how-
ever, the trend was reversed.
Appeal Lost ,
"As the plot has grown In im-
portancs, the music has become
more and more limited," he says.
"It has lost the quality of general
appeal, the quality of personal
identification. I have striven to
regain this quality,." -
..O'Brien has put five years of
labor into his production, "Land
Ho!" Besides being a candidate for
a masters degree in playwriting,
he has been in such campus pro-
ductions as Soph Show, "Caou
-But the concept of doing a to-
challenge." O'Brien consider ti
a great step forward for both the
University and MUSKET.
The background for "Land Ho!"
is Columbus' voyage to America.
"I originally intended this to be
a serious musical with Columbus
as a romantic hero," O'Brien ex-
plains. "As the play developed,
however, the opportunities for
farce became too good to ignore."
Columbus (O'Brien) becomes a
buffoon. The laughs begin when
his new crew sneaks on a load of
contraband-girls. From there the
plot wends its way through two
'love affairs, a mutiny and the
antics of Columbus, to the final
cry of '"land ho!",

The Baroque Trio, organized in1
1953, specializes in the music of
the Baroque period, 1600-175G.
"We believe that people should
not just read about this music in
encyclopedias, nor should the 'mu-
sic itself be confined to librar-
ies," said Prof. Florian Mueller of
the School of Music, who plays
oboe for the group.
Mueller joined the group in
1954, replacing Prof Lre War-
drop. Other members are Prof.
N elson Hauenstein, flute, Prof.
Clyde Thompson, string base, and
Prof. Marilyn Mason, harphichord,.
The group, limited to music school
facuilty members, was formally
recognized as an organization by
the University in 1955.
The inclusion of a string bass
was traditional in atrios of the
Baroque period. Hence, Prof.
Thompson was included to add
depth and color to the trio.

id style, with two melodic lines in

"We buy some of our music, but
much of it is found in University
libraries, including the Stellfeld
collection in the General Library,"
Mueller said. Although the mem-
bers of the group do not compose
their own music, Mueller and Miss
Mason have written keyboard
parts when none exist. The orig-
inal music of the period is per-
formed as it is written, and no
transcriptions are used.
The Baroque Trio has perform-
ed all over the state, including
Detroit, Lansing and Jackson.
Their only out-of-state appear-
ance was in Columbus, Ohio, be-
fore the Music Education National
Most of the trio's engagements
are arranged by the University Ex-
tension Service. The group pre-
sents onie concert each semester
and one during the summer ses-
sion at the University. The con-
cert for this semester will be per-
formed at 8:30 p.m. tonight In
