May Festival Artist
Keeps Old-Fashioned
Vews on New Music
"Music, I believe, is just begin-
ning in America," stated Nanette
Guilford, soprano of Saturday
night's May Festival concert, in aj
recent interview. "So far, I have
been rather old-fashioned in my
ideas about the modern music, al-
though it is the only thing in
which I consider myself old-fash-
ioned. The new music is weird, and
in my opinion it will not last long.
But I do believe that out of all this
chaos, which can hardly be called
music, will come something won-
derful which will be a combination
of the new and the old music."
This was Miss Guilford's first ap-
pearance on a May Festival pro-
gram, and she declared that all of
the people with whom she had
come in contac.t in Ann Arbor have,
been so charming that she has en-
joyed her stay here. "They have
been so kind to me that I have not
been idle one minute since I arriv-
ed in town," she stated. Miss Guil-
ford is especially fond of the Verdi
Requiem and enjoys singing with
the Choral Union chorus.
Miss Guilford was born in New
York city,. and received the major-
ity of her training under private
tutors, especially Albert Jeannotte.

ture can be portrayed by these

the essential points to be achieved
before a feeling of the atmosphere

ing with these effects is to produce
