Some of the tunes used free
word associations, with audi-
ence contributions, resulting in
a blues song concerning "Seven
lebanese elephants Hannibal and
other gargoyles." There were
always unique colors and sounds
involved, from Chin's playing

songs was "laid back". The

Ars Musica will give its first
concert on the University cam-
pus in almost four years on Sun-
day, September 22 at 8 p.m. in
the Residential College Auditor-
ium. The group of old music
specialists plays its regular Ann
Arbor concerts to sold-out au-
diences at St. Clare's Episcopal
Church on Parkard Road about
one mile south of the campus.?
The group's musical director,
Lyndon Lawless, says that the
Residential College spot in East
Quad was chosen for this cam-
pus concert because it is ideal
for the type of intimate and in-
formal concert Ars Music plans1
to give.
