Palmer Christian And University
Students Assist
As its premiere performance.
Ernest Block's symphony, "Ameri-
ca," was played by the School of
Music orchestra under the direc-
tion of Joseph E. Maddy yesterday
afternoon in Hill auditorium. The
composition received the Musical
America magazine $3,000 prize for
the greatest musical work sub-
mitted in 1928.
Palmer Christian and a chours
of University choral literature class
students assisted at the perform-
ance which preceded by a few hours
the joint premiere which was given
last night by five symphony or-
chestras, the New York Philhar-
monic orchestra, the Boston Sym-
phony orchestra, the Philadelphia
Symphony orchestra, the Chicago
Symphony orchestra, and the San
Francisco Symphony orchestra.';
The conductors of these orchestras
were the judges of the competitionj
conducted by Musical America1
magazine, at which this symphony
won the prize, and as each one
asked for the privilege of perform-t
ing the work for the first time, it
was agreed that they should all-
share the premiere by performing
the work the same day.
Composer ives Permission I
The performance given by theI
School of Music orchestra yester-
day afternoon was arranged by
special permission from the com-
poser, and is the only one other
than those by the best-known sym-
phony orchestras in the country.
It is possible that the symphony1
will be given in-Ann Arbor at theI
May Festival of 1929.
Mr. Maddy, conductor of the I
School of Music orchestra, is en-
thusiastic about the score and
thinks that it is "great." The or-t
chestra has been rehearsing thet
symphony for the past, six weekst
in preparation for yesterday's per-
formance. Mr. Maddy states thatI
"the music is a great inspirational2
'work." It is a history of America,v
beginning with an Indian theme,
combining war dances and loves
songs, which progresses to Englishk
music depicting the call of free- I
dom, the voyage of the Mayflower,I
its struggles and trials across thet
sea, and at last land.V
Machine Age Is Depicted t
Then the birth of young America,
independence, revolt, and war, .
which, according to the score, ist
chaos, this is depicted in the sec-e
ond part; and finally comes thet
present age-the machine age. A '
call for help out of the chaos re-t
solves into a semblance of orderd
and finishes the score with ans
"America" hymn which the audi-t
ence sings.
The words are :"America! Ameri-t
ca! Thy name is on my heart; Myr
love for thee arouses me To nobler -
thoughts and deeds. Our fathers
builded a nation to give us Justice
and Peace. Toward higher aims,
toward brighter goals, Toward free-
dom of all mankind. Our hearts
we pledge, America, To stand by
thee, to give to thee Our strength,
our faith, and our lives."
