The Revolution in

During the last hundred years,
pera production has undergone
revolution--a shift in authority
rom singer to conductor.
Prof. Glenn D. McGeoch of the
nusic school, who has spent much
f his life listening to and study-
ng opera, enjoys discussing his
avorite subject. In, his entensive
ravels throughout Europe and the
Jnited States for the last 30
rears, he has witnessed the dis-

however, as shown by their purge

"Falstaff." At one point, when
things were not going as he wish-
ed, he walked to the orchestra pit
and said, "Maestro, do you mind
if I show you how to sing this?"
And the conductor replied, "Mr.
Warren, do you mind if I show
you how Verdi wrote it?"
Power Shift
The prima donna fought against
this power shift all the way, and
even in this century, strong-
willed singers came to arms with
equally strong-willed conductors.

Volunteers Sought
Approximately 5000 volunteer
alumni workers are being sought
to do all of the fund soliciting
for the drive. They will operate
in and around their home towns,
making reports to the closest
branch office.
The drive's Detroit office is
already in operation. Offices are
tentatively planned for New York
City, Chicago, Cleveland and as
yet undesignated cities in the

nounced campaign to raise more!
than $100 million.
The firm's first task for the
University was to determine
whether a state university would
be able to hold a successful fund
drive on the same large scale as
privately endowed schools. The
theory has been that because state
universities are tax-supported they
would not be able to solicit the
same sizeable gifts from their
alumni the private schools receive.
Nation-Wide Survey

of the mandate will dwindle in
the next two years, Thomas said.
"Because of the Democrat seats
gained in this election President
Lyndon B. Johnson will press on
in the 89th Congress for his great-
est changes; it is conceivable that
the 90th Congress could see a
return of 20-30 seats to the Re-
publicans. The President will
probably have to strike while the
iron is hot," he said.

Geoch explained. "You under,

Then in the early 20th century,
conductors with strong personali-
ties, mostly German, took their
cue from Wagner; they got the
idea they could direct the entire
production-and they did.
These conductors carried Wag-
ner's methods of opera production
into the works of composers such
as Mozart and Verdi. Their whole
ensemble was meticulously train-
ed and the results were very good,
McGeoch said.
With World War II, most of the
great conductors and singers were
forced to leave Europe to seek
political and artistic refuge. This
