By JANE CARL
The Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra
with soloists Angel Reyes and Samual
Mayes gave its final concert of the
season in the Power Center on October
8th, and it was interesting indeed on a
number of counts.
First of all, let us discuss stage ap-
pearance. What is the first thing the
avid concert-goer sees when he' or she
enters the concert hall?iA lot of in-
strumentalists dressed in black and
white, right? Wrong, wrong, wrong, at
least not in the Ann Arbor Symphony
Orchestra. We see the majority of in-
strumentalists dressed in the
customary concert colors, but we also
see that small minority dressed in
distracting blue, brown and gray. Now,
it's obvious that the Ann Arbor Sym-
phony is not the Cleveland or the
Philadelphia or any other major sym-
phony orchestra; but an organization
that calls itself "semi-professional"
should be prepared to dress the part..
ONE CANNOT fault the orchestra. in
the difficulty of their selections;
however, one can fault them in their
execution. The first piece on the
program was Beethoven's "Overture to
Coriolanus." The piece begins with an
alternation of a single, sustained note
and staccato chords. This was where
the orchestra made its first mistake.
The precision of the violins was, at best,
mediocre. Admittedly, it is very dif-
ficult to maintain exact re ision with a
plethora, (thirty-seven, to be exact) of
violins; perhaps the orchestra should
have eliminated some of the players or
chosen a less taxing piece. The
_ violinists seem to be existing in thirty-
seven different tonalities, each just a
hair different from that of the player
next to him. It must be pointed out that
this orchestra does not lack in

musicality; rather, they are wanting in
the areas of technique and precision.
The second piece, Dvorak's "Sym-
phony No. 8 in G Major," fared better.
The orchestra contains a fine low brass
section who showed their ability to play
aggressively, without being overblown
and bombastic. These horns also have a
very clear, ringing sound, unlike the
trumpets, whose tone is flabby. The low
strings in the orchestra are the an-
tithesis of the high; they move together
very accurately and have only minute
intonation problems. In the allegro, the
recurring low string theme was very
precise without losing any of its
musicality or romance. The woodwinds
are also a competent group. All are
sensitive and play well together.
Especially notably is the principal
flautist, Nancy Waring, who is neither
endowed with an overbearing vibrato
nor undersupported.
After a short intermission, the or-
chestra returned with cellist Samual
Mayes and violinist Angel Reyes for
Brahms' "Concerto in A Minor for
Violin, Cello and Orchestra." Both
soloists are professors at U of M's
School of Music and well deserve their
distinguished, international reputations
as musicians. The piece was the high
point of the evening, with great
technique and facility displayed by both
artists. The dialogues between the
soloists were very expressive and shar-
ply defined. The famous 'andante
movement was especially well inter-
preted. Once again, the strings lacked
precision and accuracy of intonation on
the pizzicato sections; although as a
whole, this piece was their best. Maybe
the orchestra should play accom-
paniments more often, because they
obviously feel more secure when they
are not the center of attention.

Performance guide
muSiC
Ann Arbor New Wave Festivat-A chance to check out some of those in-
triguing-sounding bands whose flyers get posted all over town-The
Flexibles, Gary Pryka and the Scales, Teenage Rage, Lobsters Gorilla,
among others-with headliner Ragnar Kvaran, whose intriguing talent has
yet to really gel on stage. Out of two evenings there should be at least one
convincing performance and a couple of surprises. Friday and Saturday,
Star Bar, 109 N. Main. Call the club for details and last minute changes.
Dixie Dregs-If hillbilly boogie's your bag, this band delivers it with a
flourish of fusion. Southern rock that cooks like the old Allman Bros. at their
jazziest, thankfully free of Charlie Daniels-ish conservatism. Power Center,
Friday, 8:00 p.m.
Martin Carthy-This founding member of Steeleye Span, a late, much
lamented English folk-rock band in the Fairport tradition, brings his
acoustic guitar and exhaustive, entertaining repertoire of traditional British
music to the Ark. Sunday, 8:00 p.m. 1421 Hill.
Mstislav Rostoprovitch-This Russian cellist has been heralded as "the
world's greatest, perhaps the greatest ever," and his Ann Arbor recital s
sure to be a thrilling display of virtuosity. Sunday, 8:30 p.m., Hill
Auditorium.
Koko Taylor-With a voice powerful enough to stand out in the male-dominated
Chicago blues scene, KoKo was a feminist before the word was invented and
if anything her last Ann Arbor appearance show proved that the spunk and
fire were still there. Wednesday, 8:30 p.m., Rick's, 611 Church.

MOVIES
Allegro Non Troppo-Italian animator Bruno Buzzetto's satirical bow to
(and swipe at) Fantasia is, fortunately, very much its own film, with none of
the grandstanding pretentiousness that spoiled the fun of Disney's noble ex-
periment. This collection of cartoon fantasies inspired, by classical music
pieces, linked by some fairly amusing live-action footage, is by comparison
lewd and crude, in a healthy sort of way. It's also by turns technically
brilliant, wildly funny, and even very touching (in the stray-cat sequence).
Uneven, but well worthwhile. Friday, 7:00 and 9:00, Hutchins Hall; Satur-
day, same times, Nat. Sci.
Les Blanc Night-Documentary filmmaker Les Blanc will lecture, answer
audience questions and show some of his short films-including quirky
glimpses at fellow filmmaker Werner Herzog, the Gilro Garlic Festival,
blues maestro Lightin' Hopkins, and the Mardi Gras. Sunday, Aud. A,
Angell, 7:00 and 9:00.
THX-1138-Six years before his Star Wars, George Lucas made his feature
film debut with this very different view of the distant future. Robert Duvall
stars as the sole rebel in an antiseptic underground society where all the
inhabitants are kept in adrugless, joyless, unprotesting stupor. The movie
sn't a cute comic-book omp, but it isn't dull, either-eerie and disorienting,
it isn't quite like any other science-fiction advent.re. Friday; 9:40, Nat. Sci.
Footlight Parade-For conniseurs of camp, sheer delight. Vintage girls
girls-girls Busby Berkeley production numbers (this time featuring a water-
fall formed out of glitzed-up beauties), did-anyone-ever-believe-this-stuff
plotting (of the show-must-go-on, Gee-kids-we-made-it sort), snap from
James Cagney and Joan Blondell, and ap from Ruby Keeler and Dick
Powell. Wednesday, 7:00 and 9:15, Lorch Hall.

THEATRE
Kennedy's Children-Patrick Hamilton takes a grim look backward at the
1960's. This production by the Canterbury Loft Stage Company features
some promising new faces in A2 talent. At the Canterbury Loft, 332 S. State
(over Music Mart). Performances at 8 p.m. Friday through Sunday and a 2.
p.m. matinee on Sunday.
