leading concert sponsor, the
University Musical Society, toj
attract prominent orchestrast
and soloists from all over the{
world. Each year, the Society'
sponsors nearly fifty concerts
from all fields of performancest
-including ballet, opera, and.
Asian dance.
Next year's Society schedulet
includes an outstanding collec- 2
tion of major performing ar-t
tists. The Moscow State Sym- ,
phony, considered by many
critics to be the Soviet Union'sE
leading orchestra, will perform{
as part o fthe Society's Choral
Union Series in October. Zubin,
Mehta and the Los Angeles
Philharmonic are scheduled to
come to town in November.
Other Society attractions re-
flect a wide variety of musicali
tastes. The Tokyo String Quar-
tet, a leading chamber perform-

May Festival, a four-day extra-
vaganza featuring venerable
conductor Eugene Ormandy,
the Philadelphia Orchestra, and
distinguished guest soloists.
Two other groups make spe-
cialized contributions to the
University classical music
scene. Works of Baroque com-
posers receive unusual atten-
tion through the efforts of
Ars Musica, a unique 17th cen-
tury - style orchestra organized
by several local musicians. The
organization holds four concerts
each year at the St. Clare Epis-
copal Church on Packard -Rd.
The Music School also spon-
sors several concerts and reci-
tals eachsweek, ranging from
massive symphony band per-
formances to intimate vocal or
instrumental showcase offer-
ings. There is usually no ad-
mission charge.

Boasting one of the strongest
and most active carillons in
North America, the University
is equally proud of its newest
program in the School of Music
which, under the direction of
Heod Carilloneur Hudson Ladd,
offers students a bachelors de-
gree in carillon playing.
SINCE THE inception of the

program last fall, 11 University c
students have enrolled. Despite1
the small numbers in compari-
son with LSA's thousands, De- I
Turk contends the program may ,
whittle its enrollments. "When
you only have one instrument,":
he explained, "eleven is a large
number."
Senior Katherine Beck, a mu-
sic history major, is one of
those 11 students anonomously

commanding the Burton Tower
bells.
"I love to play," she said,
"but oh! ;those poor people who
have to listen whether tney
want to or not. They don't
even have a choice."
WHILE Beck's dictatorJke
position in the Tower makes her
feel somewhat uneasy, De Furk
hypothesized that for some,
command of the carillon may
satisfy a certain egotistical
need.

Another rough edge for the

fierce. Also, a law which pro-
