NEWS FROM THE{
MAJOR EVENTS OFFICE
Jimmy Buffett brings his Coral Reefer
Band into Hill Auditorium for one night only,
this Friday evening at 8:00 p.m. The sales
of Buffetts "Changes In Latitudes, Changes
in Attitudes" album have just surged over
the platinum mark. This week, ABC is
releasing his new album, "Son Of A Son Of A
Sailor," so we can expect a previewof some
of his new, tasty tunes.
Opening the show will be Warner
Brothers' outstanding new artist, Marc Jor-
dan. He combines sensitive lyrics with sub-
tle jazz flavorings to produce some very
emotional music. The combination of Jordan
and the laid-back Florida songs of Jimmy
Buffett should send us on a tropical cruise
this Friday in Hill Auditorium. Tickets are
still available.
Tickets went on sale, last week, for the
John Denver and Jackson Browne concerts
in April. Having two artists of this calibre in
Ann Arbor, within three days of each other,
seems to be turning this town upside down.
it is understandable, since both artists have
hot albums riding the charts: John Denver's
"I Want To Live" and Jackson Browne's
"Running On Empty."

the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra
lived up to its reputation as one of the

it performed in the University Musical

much more exacting and conservative
while conducting the accompaniment;
and in the Kodaly composition his
direction was very sparse, yet em-
phatic.
The evening began with the Scherzo
Capriccioso, Op. 66 by Antonin Dvorak.
This short work, characterized by
Dvorak's melodic freshness and spon-
taneity infused with traces of Czech folk
tunes and dance rhythms was perfor-
med smoothly, with a natural flow. The
rhythms were tight and the attacks
precise, but at times the percussion
(especially the cymbals) was too loud
- overpowering the rest of the or-
chestra.
THE VIOLIN melodies were strong
and unified witha full sound and great
intonation. Both the French horn and
flute soloists played sensitively and
blended well with the rest of the or-
chestra. Overall, the dynamic contrasts
were appropriate and brought out well.
The next piece on*the program was
Concerto for Violin and Orchestra by
Aram Khachaturian, whose style and
idioms are modeled after the rhythmic
folk dances and improvisational
lyricism of the folk songs of Armenia
and Transcaucasia. Albert Markov, the
violin soloist, played the surging,
emotional melodies of the Allegro

deciso very assuredly with a steady,
rounded tone and almost perfect in-
tonation. Markov played with great
dynamic control, performing difficult
rhythms easily and using consistent
phrasing. In the allegro vivace, Markov
played with energy and vibrancy, and
his volume was loud - always enough
to sound over the orchestra. At the end,
he took several solo bows while many in
the audience stood applauding.
After intermission, the orchestra
played the Hary Janos Suite by Zoltan
Kodaly - a suite for orchestra adapted
from the operatic score which tells of
the adventures of the Hungarian folk
hero Hary Janos. The prelude was
played smoothly and the pianissimo by
the lower strings was exceptionally
beautiful. When the volune grew to a
forte, however, the brass played too
loud and the first violins were prac-
tically inaudible.
In the Song, the slowly shifting tex-
tures carried by shimmering first
violins were played gracefully. Superb
flute and oboe solos sounded above the
floating string accompaniment. The or-
chestra played the Intermezzo with a
full, solid sound and exceptional balan-
ce, while the broken chord progressions
of the cimbalom added an oriental
color.

W HEN THE SINGING TEAM OF
Simon and Garfunkel split up
seven years ago, some skeptics
assumed that Art Garfunkel's musical
career would simply become a part of
past history. Paul Simon, after all, had
been the dominant force of the duo; he
was the composer and guitarist,
whereas Garfunkel was the vocal
genius.
His concert Sunday evening at Ford
Auditorium featured a delightful com-
bination of past S&G hits and his most
notable solo efforts.
The concert's opening act was Dan
Hill, whose current single "Sometimes
When We Touch" has firmly lodged it-
self in Top 40 playlists across the coun-
try. Hill appeared alone onstage with
his acoustic guitar, and immediately
captivated the audience with a number
of outstanding compositions. With a
very relaxed on-stage manner, Hill
related several anecdotes about his hit
tunes, including selections from his
latest LP, Longer Fuse.
ART GARFUNKEL began his set
with the first of three songs he perfor-
med during the evening which he has
not yet recorded: One of these, "High-
way", was composed by vocalist
Stephen Bishop, who recently appeared
with Garfunkel on the Saturday Night
Live television program.
Although Garfunkel reached a couple
of flat notes in the opening number, he
quickly recovered with a strong ren-
dition of "For Emily, Whenever I May
Find Her" from the early Simon and
Garfunkel LP, Parsley, Sage,
Rosemary and Thyme. He later per-
formed "Scarborough Fair/Canticle"
fromthe same album, with the inter-

IN FIVE DAYS.
Whether this is your first, fifth or fiftieth
attempt to stop smoking, it will be your last.
Because our 5-day group program neutralizes your desire for tobacco.

Art Garfiinkel
In My Sleep", from Garfunkel's latest
LP, Watermark.
He also sang a sequence of his recent
solo recordings, including the title tune
from his album Breakaway, and the hit
single "I Only Have Eyes for You".
THE BAND and the audience both hit,
a funky stride with the song "Cecilia",
which included some innovative high-
tone electric guitar work, and spon-
taneous rhythmic hand-clapping from
the crowd.
The tune "All I Know" from the LP
Angel Clare was strikingly set with a
simple piano and cello accompaniment.
Garfunkel shot for - and reached - the
more difficult high notes he had
avoided in some of the earlier songs;
his interpretation of Jimmy Webb's
lyric was clear and beautifully con-
trolled.
Garfunkel closed the set by playing
the two songs the audience most wanted
to hear. Backup band members again
supplied harmony for the current
smash single,' "( What a) Wonderful
World", which Garfunkel performed
with Paul Simon and James Taylor on
Watermark. The focus was on Gar-
funkel for "Bridge Over Troubled
Waters", easily the most popular song
Simon and Garfunkel recorded
together. Garfunkel handled the
soaring vocals with ease, his voice
ringing with powerful emotion, and was
complimented by an excellent piano
accompaniment.
The audience demanded two encores,
one of which was the old S&G favorite,
"The Sound of Silence". A heavy elec-
tric arrangement, and some eerie blue
lighting gave an additional
mysteriousness to the classic Paul
Simon composition.
By swinging both old and new
favorites and popular new songs, he
fulfilled the expectations of every
member of the audience.

IN GOOD SHAPE.

You don't need anyone to tell you the draw-
backs of smoking but if you continue smoking
in face of the evidence, you probably need help
in quitting. Or maybe it's easy for you to stop,
but staying stopped is something else.
If you want to quit smoking, we will show you
how to stop. At the end of five days, you will be
through with cigarettes forever. Even the most
hard to cure smokers find that the Smoke
Stoppers program works for them.
How Smoke Stoppers Works
Our program doesn't just stop you from smok-
ing, but rids you completely from your depen-
dence on nicotine. We don't use hypnosis,
scare tactics or filters and devices to get you to
stop smoking. And you won't need will power
either. Years of research on habit formation
allowrour skilled therapists to show you how to
quickly break your smoking habit through the
development of new associations in the sub-
conscious memory.

Here's What People Say
About Smoke Stoppers
Many people tell us that a valuable part of our
program is the section that shows you how to
minimize or eliminate the weight gain that
often accompanies smoking cessation pro-
grams. Here are some of the other things our
graduates tell us about our program:
Mr.S. G. from Southfield -
2 pack a day smoker for 10 yrs..
"I had tried to quit smoking about ten other times by myself
but without success. With the help of the program lam now
tree of cigarettes for the first time since highrschool and I
have not been irritable either:'
Mrs. C. S. from Ann Arbor -
1 pack a day smoker for 23 yrs.
I was amazed that after the first day I hardly had any urges
for a cigarette nor did I crave food. The Smoke Stoppers
program made this possible:'
Mr. T. C. from Grosse lie.-
4 pack a day smoker for 46 yrs.
"I didn't know quitting could ever be this easy. The Smoke
Stoppers program was almost magical in the way it got me
off cigarettes and has kept me off. I'll never smoke again.

Five Hours To Freedom
At the completion of the Smoke Stoppers program you will find
that you are once again your own person. You will be completely
free from the need to smoke. And all it takes is five days ..
five hours.. . and the first session is free.
