J. ALBERT RIKER, Assistant General Manager,
Musical Courier, New York: "The list of artists and
conductors engaged, the organizations which will par-
ticipate, the works which are to be given and the ex-
cellence of the schedule of presentation, seems to me is
not surpassed by any of our festivals."
JAMES E. DEVOE, Manager Philharmonic Concert
Co., Detroit: "Knowing as I do the cost of artists, I
realize that you have gone the limit to give May Fes-
tival patrons a great array. It should be one the most
artistic series of concerts you have ever presented and
that means one of the greatest ever presented in this
ADA BICKING, State Director of Music Education,
Lansing: "It is truly a most marvelous and varied
array of great personalities and the program is a most
delightful one. The surprise is that it annually in.
chudes somec distinct, unique, and outstanding offering
which as a result carres the audience in the current
of national events."
MARGIE McLEOD, Western Manager, Musical
America, Chicago: "No doubt it is the biggest thing
in the country and I am happy to read about it."
L. E. BEHYMIR, Manager The Philharmonic

tremendous undertaking and the three big musical num-
bers that you are presenting require ability, finesse and
a super-krnowledge of music.

Missouri: "You have made an excellent choice of
soloists, and I am delighted to see the list of choral
works you have chosen."
ADOLF WEIDIG, American Conservatory of Music,

artists-the best in the land! And such choral works!"
tional Federation of Musi Clubs, Port Huron: "Your
roster of artists is a brilliant one. Many will attend
the Festival to hear the exquisite voice of Claire Dux.
We are especially pleased to note the presence of

D. M. SWARTHOUT, Dean, School of Fne Arts,
Lawrence, Kansas: "I doubt whether it can be excelled
anywhere in the country. Such a program deserves
a sellout' May it have the success it richly deserves."
SELBY OPPENHEIMER, Concert Manager, San
Francisco: "I cannot refrain from congratulating you
on the splendid selection you have again made. As I
have expressed to you before,the Ann Arbor Festival
is undoubtedly the foremost of its kind in America."

Opera Company: "This is certainly a very fine repre-
sentative list, better than anything that I have seen
in a long time, and I am sure the audiences will be
entirely pleased with their work."

York: "The Ann Arbor May Festival is a high light

PETER W. DYKEMA, Professor of Music Education,
Columbia University: "The list of artists and organ-
izations participating in the 1930 May Festival at Ann
Arbor, together with the excellent choral works selected
are abundant evidence that the high standards of pre-
ceding years are being adequately maintained."
LOUIS ECKSTEIN, President, The Ravinia Opera
Company, Chicago: "It is gratifying to know that great
educational institutions like the University of Michigan
are making provision for cultural advancement. Your
list of artists is admirable, and when these are taken
into account, together with the fact that you are pre-
senting the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, under the
baton of Dr. Frederick Stock, whicheisrone of the
greatest symphonic bodies the world knows today, I
fully believe that your program will be, outstanding
among the festivals of America."
ROY DICKINSON WELCH, Chairman, Department
of Music, Smith College, Northampton, Massachusetts:

nounce for the Annual May Festival."

the interest of Musical Art."

RUSSELL V. MORGAN, Directing Supervisor, De-
partment of Music, Cleveland, Ohio: "The May Fes-
tival at Ann Arbor is one of the outstanding musical
events of America. It seems almost impossible that
such a large group of outstanding music performers
can be gathered together to participate in one week's
offering of the finest things in music."
HOWA(RD HANSON, Director of Music, Eastman
School of Music, Rochester, New York: "You are cer-
tainly to be congratulated most heartily on the program
outlined, both in regard to works to be presented and

its reputation-as one of the most notable and important
festivals in the country."
WILLIAM E. WALTER, Manager, St. Louis Sym-
phony Society, St. Louis: "You certainly have a most
formidable list of artists, and the works that you have
in prospect make certain that the Festival will be a
notable one. Homegger's, 'King David' to mind is the
choral work which is destined to hold a high place 'n

FELIX BOROWSKI, Chicago: "You have succeeded
in gathering a notably brilliant array. I am impressed,
too, with the worth and interest of the great choral
works which you propose to interpret with your fine
chorus and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. They
would bring great triumphs in their train."
C. M. TREMAINE, Director, National Bureau for
the Advancement of Music, New York: "We congratu-
late you upon your program for the Thirty-Seventh
Annual May Festival of the University of Michigan,
which we are sure will be a helpful stimulus to fine
music in the community. Your list of artists is most

list of attractions. The works chosen for performance,
the University Choral Union, the Chicago Orchestra,
and such a list of soloists should be an irresistible com-
EDITH M. KELLER, State Supervisor of Music,
Columbus, Ohio: "The School of Music of the Uni-
versity of Michigan is to be congratulated upon its
efforts in behalf of good music. You are doing a most
commendable piece of work in bringing such an array
to your community."
FRANCIS L. YORK, Detroit Institute of Arts, De-
troit: "The list of great artists is positively staggering,
-how you can get such a constellation of stars, to-
gether for one festival I can not understand. The Mlay
Festivals have always been outstanding events in the
musical history of Michigan but this one in my opinion,
bids fair to surpass all the others.y,
HARPER C. MAYBEE, Director of Music, Western
State Teachers College, Kalamazoo, Michigan: "Kindly
accept my most hearty congratulations on again pre-
senting to the musical public of Michigan and to the
Middle West, one of the broadest and most compre-
hensive arrays of great contrasting choral works, in-
comparable organizations, virtuoso artists, and master
musical directors"
JAMES T. QUARLES, Dean of the Student of Fine
Arts, Columbia, Missouri: "A performance of the Bach
"Magnificat' is real choral tour-de-force. The soloists
selected are all from the world's greatest, and when
taken in connection with the Chicago Orchestra, should
guarantee performances of outstanding artistic merit."
PIERRE V. R. KEY, Editor Musical Digest, New
York: "I feel that I should extend my congratulations
in the preparation of so interesting a program and the
engagement of such a representative list of vocal and
instrumental soloists, as well as the Chicago Symphony
BENDETSON NETZORG, Detroit: "I am particu
uarly pleased that straight choral numbers are to be
given instead of opera adaptations for the concert
stage" "The singers engaged are of fine standing and
accomplishments. Little Ruggiero Ricci will srely" be
an attractive addition."
Philadelphia: "The artists of the Thirty-Seventh An-
nual May Festival have quite obviously been selected,
not merely because of their renown in. the field of opera
and concert, bue because of their present ability to
contribute toward such a noteworthy event in the way
to enlighter and inspire the public. With the list that
the Festival has this year, its patrons may be assured
of a series of performances of real delight."
FLORENCE FRENCH, Editor, Musical Leader, Chi-

ment. I know of no place that runs so true to form
