Latvian-born Jansons is quickly be-
coming one of the most prominent
conductors of our time. He has ap-

orchestras and has conducted nu-

Concertgebouw and the Israeli

third Ann Arbor appearance, fol-

Oslo Philharmonic and last year's
appearance with the Leningrad Phil-

Soloist Zimmermann, born in
Duisburg, Germany in 1965, is al-
ready known throughout the world
as one of his generation's finest vio-
linists. He made his American debut
in 1984 at age 19, with Lorin
Maazel and the Pittsburgh Sym-
phony. This led to his New York
debut at Avery Fisher Hall two
years later. He has since performed
with major orchestras and at leading
festivals around the world.
Now, at age 26, Zimmerman re-
turns to Ann Arbor for his third
appearance, after performing Mo-

Most of the students who sing in
the two groups are not focusing
their principal studies on music, and
find that singing provides other
benefits. "It's a form of stress re-
lief," says Women's Glee Clubber
Angela Ryker, "and it's something
that I like to do. This is a good way
for people who aren't musical
theater or music majors to vent
their need to sing." There are social
aspects to singing as well. "It gives
you something else to do besides
schoolwork," says Glee Club Vice
President Holly Carson, "and
socially, you get to know different
types of people."
Business Manager Patti Szasz
agrees. "I can take a break from
studying. For example, I have a test
tomorrow, but I'm here," she says
with a laugh. And for the members
of Amazin' Blue, who will be
performing with guests Nothing
But Treble from Oberlin College,
the social aspects stretch further
than just on campus. "It's fun for us
to hear from other groups," says
Mudita Agarwal, member of
In the interest of spreading the
universal language of music, both
Amazin' Blue and the Women's
Glee Club travel extensively. "We
tour the state, and last year we
performed in New York City," says
Coleman. Scott Adler, business
manager and member of Amazin'
Blue, ticks off"the previous concert
itinerary on his fingers. "Last year
our big off-campus performances
were at Tulane, in Montgomery,
Alabama, in Naples, Florida for
some Ann Arbor retirees, and in St.
Louis," he says.
Usually taking place during
spring breaks, the touring offers
good experience and practice for.
future shows. "(Performing) is av
good way to test ourselves, in front;
of crowds," says Agarwal. Fellow
singer Carrie Simpson agrees. "It's
fun because we can try new things
and we're not being critiqued," she 6.
Both of this weekend's perfor-
mances should provide kicks for all.
"This year we have a better group, t.
both vocally and musically. They're
overall better musicians," says
Coleman of the Glee Club. And
Amazin' Blue claims to have a few
surprises up their collective sleeves, 4
with a good deal of comedy being'
performed between the songs'.
"We're not compromising our'.. '
musicianship for comedy," says'' i
Adler. Simpson adds, "With a

what to expect -it's entertaining.
Be prepared to have fun."
