forms the theme of the May Gargoyle
which will appear on the camnpus
this morning, with a cover typical of

authoritative appointment from thie
editors of the Gargoyle as the royal
director to the afore-said spaces, ac-

Much of the interest in the thirty-
fourth annual May Festival, which
will be held in Hill auditorium May
18, 19, 20, and 21, will lie in the
larger productions instead of being
confined to the performances of in-
dividual artists, according to advance
comments which have been received
by the festival authorities from
critics and musical directors all
over the country. Of especial signifi-
cance along this line is the selection
'of the local celebration by the nation-
al committee for the Convention of
the Beethoven Centenary as the me-
dium for the world premiere of the
"Heroic Elegy," written by Howard
Hanson at the express request of the
committee. Dr. Hanson will act as
guest conductor of the Chicago Sm-
phony orchestra on Wednesday night,

Dr. Hanson is musical director of
the Eastman School of Music. in Ro-
chester, N. Y., and is known as a com-
poser and musical educator. The "La-
ment For Beowulf" was given at the
Festival last year, also a premiere.
Madame Ernestine Schumann-Heink
'11 also take part in the Wednes-1
day night program. She is now in
her 50th year of public concert work.
Chicago Symphony To Assit
Other group works which have re-
ceived especial comment at this stage
are Beethoven's "Mass in D," which
will be sung Thursday night in honor
of the composer's centenary, and
Bizet's "Carmen", whic will he given
Saturday night. Solist in "Carmen"
are Sophie Braslau, contralto, Lois
Johnson, soprano, Armand Tokatyan,
tenor, Lawrence Tibbett, baritone,
and James Wolfe, bass. The Univer-
sity Choral Union and the Chicago
Symphony orchestra will support
these stars.
Of, the supporting organizations
there are three, the University Choral
Union, the Children's Festival Chorus,
and the Chicago Symphony orchestra.
The Choral Union organized in :879,
and developed mostly through the
efforts of Dr. Albert A. Stanley from
1888 to 1921, has performed at all May
Festivals and since its organization
has played most of the greater choral
works. There are more than 300
The Chicago Symphony orchestra,
which has been conducted by Fred-
erick Stock since 1904 is the third
oldest orchestra of its kind in the
country. It has been an adjunct of the
Festival since 1905. Mr. Stock, a grad-
uate of Cologne Conservatory, is a
specialist in theory and composition,
and in the first capacity in particular
has a considerable reutation.
For ten years the children's chors
has been a regular feature of the
Festival. It is made up of public
school children trained by Joseph E.
l Maddy, supervisor of music, who has
attained distinction also as an au-~
thor, editor, and conductor. The chil-
dren's chorus will present the can-
tata "Voyage of Aron", written by
Earl V. Moore, director of the Fes-
tival, on the Friday afternoon pro-
Moore Congratulated
Mr. Moore has been the recipient
of innumerable letters of congratula-
tion concerning the features of this
year's program. Among others who
have written, Walter Damrosch, con-
ductor of the New York Symphony
orchestra, has stated that the "annual
May Festival stands in the front rank
of such events and its influence o
the community cannot be overestimat-
ed. I am especially interested in the
two principal works to be performed
this May, the Beethoven "Mass in D",
and the Choral Symphony by Helst.
William Wade Hinshaw, New York
impresario, stated his intentions of

coming to the programs and compli-
mented the authorities on the artists
which they have obtained, describing
the Festival as the finest musical
event of the whole American season.
