Klein Organizes Whole Choral Program, Choirs

Sphinx, Living Units Accuse Committee
Of Mismanaging Homecoming Choices


<# I

Prof. Maynard Klein of the mu-
school came to the University
Discovering only one choir -
d that, a credit course in en-
nble, he was prompted to or-
nize a: whole. choral program
d a network of choirs.
The choirs, in which over 400
idents now participate, "should
all-embracing," he said, "rang-
g from the small and select to
e concert choir, the large chor-
and finally the festival choir."
Name Major Units
Within this framework, there
e differentiated groups with
ecialized performance functions.
ajor units are the University
oir whose 300 mixed voices pre-
it an annual Christmas concert,
d the Bach Choir of 160 which
lays the role of a core choir for
e larger University Choir," Prof.
ein explained.
The Michigan Singers are a se-
t concert choir composed of 10
lanced five-voice ensembles;
eir, repretoire consists of all
pes of choral works, especially
fitatas and motets.
From their ranks, and from the
ch Choir, are drawn the small-
choral groups - the Women's
dor, Women of Michigan Sing-
and the Men's Choir.
Tudor Group Least Known
3ut' the Tudor Singers, the
allest group,. are probably the
st known. They present schol-
y museum music of the past

this year, two works which
ve not been sung since the age
which they were written.

Simlarly, the group was the

UNIVERSITY CHOIR-Since Professor Maynard Klein of the music school came to the University ten years ago, he has organized seven
choirs, in which more than 400 students now participate. They include the University Choir, the Bach Choir, the Michigan Singers, the
Women's Choir, Women of Michigan Singers, the Tudor Singers, and the Men's Choir. These choirs are differentiated groups within the
framework of the concert choir, the large chorus, and the festival choir.

Prof. Klein explained that se-
lections like these are able to be
brought up to date because of
scholarly work being done in the
field. The editing of these "mu-
seum piecef" enables groups like
the Tudor Singers to ,present lit-

"In our selection, we like to tap

overemphasizing any one period."
Offers Study
The Bach Choir is basic prepar-
ation for the other ramifications
of the choir hierarchy-it offers a
more detailed and intensive study
of structure and-. style than the
University Choir (with four less
rehearsals a week) can give.
At special invitation, it will per-
form the Verdi Requiem with the
Grand Rapids Symphony Orches-
tra this spring.
The ambitious University Choir,
which studies and performs from
an unusually extensive repertoire,
wil lgive five major concerts this
year, performing among other
things the Bach "Mass in B Min-
or" in March, and Beethoven's
"Choral Fantasia" with the Uni-
versity Orchestra in April.
To Give First Performance
And, paralleling the Tudor Sing-
ers esotericism, they will give th
first performance in modern times
of "Hodie Christus Natus Est" by
Gabrieli, Prof. Klein comment-
ed, was the master of the Chapel
of Saint Marks in Venice in the
late 16th century; he has been
called the father of modern har-
mony" and had all the musical
force at his disposal.
Despite the dynamic growth in
his choirs, Prof. Klein insisted
that they should maintain a niche
in the whole scheme of activities.;

"I don't see choral singing as a "seems worthwhile to a sizable
cult but as one of the many facets number of people," he continued,

Transportation for Fliers

Bus transportation on Willo-
politan" to Willow Run and Detroit
Metropolitan Airports- is again be-
ing offered to students who are
planning to fly home for Thanks-
giving vacation.
This service is scheduled on
Nov. 25 only. There will be no
Willopolitan service following va-
The fares are $1.25 for one-way
service to Willow Run and $1.75
for 'Detroit Metropolitan.
Six buses will be in operation
throughout that day. They are
making scheduled stops at the
Union, in front of Mosher-Jordan
and at the intersection of Hill and.
Washtenaw streets.
To Suit Most Students
"The busschedules are worked
out to accomimodate the airplane
departure times, so that the
greatest number of students can
benefit from this service," said
Dan Murphy, '62, chairman of the
Campus - Affairs Committee of
Student Government Council.
Applications and information
can be obtained at the Student

Activities Building, at the main
desks of all residence halls, in all
off-campus housing units, and at
the local travel agents. These ap-
plications and the appropriate
sum of money can now be re-
turned to the SAB.
About two weeks before Thanks-
giving, money for tickets and ap-
plications will be collected at the
Limit Seats
Only a limited number of seats
are available and applications will
be filled in the order that they are
received. Applications must be re-
ceived by Nov. 23.
This service was run by the Un-
ion until last spring, when SGC
felt that it was inadequate and
took over, hoping to improve it,
because their first attempt wasn't-
successful. More buses have been
added, and a third stop at Hill
and Washtenaw Streets will be
"Continuous service depends on
the success of the. project. How-
ever, since a good turnout is ex-
pected, similar plans have been
made for such a service at Christ-
mas ant Easter," Murphy said.
