(Continued from Page 3)

By Paul Henry Cho
There has never been an
overwhelming interest in classical
music among students, and indeed it
has been considered by those of the
younger generation to be music for
old people who have nothing better
to do than listen to instruments
played in a boring, up-and-down

manner.
But in recent years, there seems
to be a revival of interest in
classical music by college-age
students. No longer do young
people conceive of classical music
as a senseless conglomerate of
scales but rather as highly articulate
music, full of subtleties and
expressive melodies quite unlike the

to which most 18 to 21 year-olds

And luckily for classical-music
lovers of any age, the University
has many opportunities to enjoy it.

WUOM, students can find a
plethora of classical music per -
formances every month on campus.
The coming 'season is packed
with performances that will make
even the most apathetic Classical
music listener take heed. In Sep -
tember, Leonard Bernstein and the
Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra will
perform Mozart's Clarinet Conc -
erto, Mahler's Symphony No. 5,.
and various other outstanding
classical pieces.
Other major classical music
figures such as pianist Andre Watts,
the duo-pianists Katia and Marielle
Labeque, and the brilliant guitarist
Christopher Parkening are also
scheduled to appear this year.
The Leningrad State Symphony,
the Vienna Choir Boys, as well as a
performance by the New York City

Opera National Company of
Rossini's Barber of Seville will
also all come to the University this
year.
WUOM, a public, University-
owned radio station, plays music
from the early Middle Ages to New
Age.. The station also broadcasts
live classical events and interviews
with famous composers and
conductors.
For those who would rather
perform than listen, the University
School of Music offers classes and
performance groups.in which non-
music majors may attend and play.
Admission's competition is usually
tough in these classes, and it is
imperative that interested students
plan well in advance with the
school in order to participate in
these groups.

wah grunge; have pushed the limits
of lunacy in their paper-shredding
-live performances, putting on a
stage snow nearly the visual equal
of the Butthole Surfers' extra-
vaganzas.
Other unknown soldiers of
innovation and integrity run the
garage-based gamut from fresh-
scrubbed folk-popsters Mourning
Dove to the dark and dirgy Generals
to the white heat/white hate of
metalcore baldies Infant Mortality
Rate to the nerd-metal madness of
Motorhome to the Cajun-cooked
serial-murder blues of Texarkana
Dreaming to the avant-garde
eclecticism of God Knows What to
the high school hardcore hijinks of
Rodent Kontrol, who are much
more renowned for their spray-

painting ability than for their
musical proficiency.
With so many talented people
willing to devote their time and
energy towards blazing new trails in
rock music, the future health of the
local scene is positive. With a
steady influx of fresh, new, creative
young people, the prognosis is
even stronger. The only obstacle to
the continued strength of the Ann
Arbor music community is
participation. With the active
contributions and enlightened
interest of Ann Arbor's diverse
population serving as the ideal
prescription (along with some
cooperative help from promoters
and other powers-that-be), the local
music scene should certainly live
long and prosper.

For something a little more
religious, Logos Book Store at
1205 South University has all the
bestsellers and children's books and
the New Testament in maybe forty
different editions and languages.
They also have great inventory
clearance sales once or twice a
semester.
If you want mainstream,
Community Newscenter located
both on East Liberty and South
University has all the latest titles
and paperback releases in no

discernible order, so its fun to just
browse around. They also have
more magazines, newspapers and
periodicals than any place in town
and a few greeting cards to boot.
So really, whatever you want,
you can find new or used in town,
and there's certainly plenty of
chances of finding the unusual and
the rare. A great way to spend a day
is find a book you never heard of,
read it, and then you can make
small talk for weeks - all for only
a couple of dollars.
