HILL AUDITORIUM

ROSA
PONSELLE

John McCormack, the charming.
Irish tenor who will inagurate this
season's Choral Union series has
been heard in Ann Arbor several
times. More than a full student gen-
eration, however, has elapsed since
he paid his last visit to the Univer-
sity, a sort of interregnum during
which time he was either out of the,
country. or engaged in the "talkies."
Irish to the core, with a quick sensi-
tive temperament, possessing- a "voice
of a century" he has become the idol
of music lovers everywhere, and his
concerts wherever they take place
stand out prominently among the
season's most delightful and worthy
events.

John eCormack
Renowned Irish Singer of Songs

Rosa Ponselle "won her spurs"
during the operatic season of 1913-
1919, when almost over night she
stepped to the rostrum of the Met-
ropolitan Opera House and "took
the audience by storm." Opera or
recital have no terrors for her. Her
brillianC' artistry, intelligence, and
general understanding of the "eter-
nal fitness of things" in the artistic
world has given her an assurance and
poise which always make her ap-
pearances tremendously successful.

city prevents o re.than occasional
brief tours to other par'ts of the
country. This season it will be heard
in New York, Buffalo, Ann Arbor,
Detroit, Columbus, and Pittsburgh.

Detroi Symphrny rh t
Ossip Gabrilowitsch, Conductor

Percy Grainger, piano virtuoso,
conductor, and composer has had as
happily unique career which has
brought to him distinguished success
in this triune field. When a lad of
twelve years of age he , made his
debut in the spacious Exhibition
Building, in his native Melbourne,
before a huge and enthusiastic audi-
ence. Since that time he has always
been received with the same fervor
and enthusiasm, and a most delight-
ful artistic glamour has enshrouded
all, of his appearances. Sold-out
houses with many turned away are
general occurance 'even when he
plays in the largest auditorium.

DON COSSACK
RUSSIAN CHORUS
Serge Jaroff, Conductor
The Don Cossack Russian Male
Chorus made such a profound im-
pression last season that to satisfy
persistent demands of music lovers
they have been re-engaged for this
season. The organization known as
"The Singing Horsemen of the
Steppes" is made up entirely of ex-
patriated members of the former
Russian Imperial Army. They are
virtually "men without a country"
and travel on "Wtansan" passports.
Their singing, whether it be the rev-
erent chorus of Tschaikowsky, the
dulcet svreade of Vannikov, the bold
and stirring tale of the Twelve Rob-
bers, or the wonderful ringing
choruses of the Don Cossacks on the
March, always move their audiences
by that thrilling timbre of tone uni-
que with Russian male voices.

Ossip Gabrilowitsch, Conductor
The Detroit Symphony Orchestra will be heard twice thi4 year,
once znder the baton of its own beloved conductor, Mr. Gabrilowitsch,
and latcr under the direction of a distinguished European director,
Dr. Rudolf Siegel, who was persuaded to come to America as guest
conductor to appear in Ann Arbor and twice in Detroit during the
preceeding week. Detroit has reason to be artistically happy with
its orchestra, for its creditable record under its scholarly leader has
carried the motor city's name to all corners of the musical world.

YEHUDI MENUHIN

r

I

Yehudi Menuhin, the "greatest boy violinist of the century,"
comes to Ann Arbor at the "ripe age" of fourteen or fifteen years,
after several seasons of public acclaim. Wisely, his astute managers
have permitted only a limited number of engagements each year, and
these have been largely in th musical capitals of Europ and in a few
of the great music centers of America. This year the Choral Union
series is included and the great student concert audience will have
an opportunity of hearing a young lad who has already won inter-
national distinction.
