May Festival History Shows 40
Yea Prognyress I. Chi1 o Union,

The Ann Arbor May Festival,
which will be presented for the 41st
time on May 9, 10, 11, and 12, was,
at its inception in 1894, the cul-
mination of a growing interest in
choral singing in the University and
the city, the history of which growth
presents a picture of hard work and
musical\ fervor on the part of sev-
eral important men.
It was originally considered little
more than a union of several church
choirs known as the University Ch-
oral Union since its organization in
the season of 1879-80. This limited
group was augmented gradually by
other interested singers and finally
took on the form of a real perma-
nent chorus. The engagement of Cal-
vin O. Cady by the University as
conductor of the Choral Union in
1883 saw the chorus assume more im-
portant proportions, both from the
standpoint of membership and from
the quality of programs provided.
Stanley Replaces Cady
In 1888, Mr. Cady resigned and Dr.
Albert A. Stanley was called to his
position. A year later, Prof. Francis
W. Kelsey, who had joined the fac-
ulty of the University as head of the
Latin department, was made presi-
dent of the Musical Society. Dr.
Stanley and Professor Kelsey built
solidly upon the existing musical
foundation, and for several seasons
brought to Ann Arbor more impres-
sive musical attractions and gave
more pretentious choral concerts.
Leading artists and organizations of
the day were heard here and so
great was the interest aroused, that
in the season of 1893-94, the first
May Festival was announced.
The Festival consisted of three
concerts and employed the Boston
Festival Orchestra, Emil Molenhauer
conducting, the Choral Union and
several soloists. So great was the en-
Invent New Device

thusiasm on the part of Ann Arbor-
ites and music lovers from all over
the State, that the crowds which
were in attendance could by no
means be accommodated. Hundreds
crowded the aisles and all available
space in Old University Hall was oc-
cupied, while many others listened in
the corridors and some were turned
away. This was the picture of the
first May Festival.
Concerts Increased
The following year, four concerts
were given, and a little later the
number was increased to five and
finally to six, the festival period being
gradually extended to four days with
double probrams on Fridays and Sat-
In 1921, Dr. Stanley resigned and
was succeeded by Earl V. Moore, as
acting conductor for twe years and in
1923, as musical director. In 1913, the
Festival program was enriched by the
inclusion of a Young People's Fes-
tival Chorus, made up of children
from the schools of Ann Arbor.
During these years the Choral
Union and the Young People's Fes-
tival Chorus have presented, either
in the Choral Union concerts or in
Festivals, practically all of the major
works. Frequently important works
have received their Ameiican or even
world premieres.
Influence Throughout World
The number -of individuals whof
have participated in these choruses4
amounts to many thousands and
their influence has been a potent fac-
tor in the development of music
throughout the civilized world
wherever they have scattered.
A striking feature of the Festivals
is that only two permanent orches-
tral conductors have participated. Mr.
Mollenhauser and the Boston Festi-
val Orchestra came to Ann Arbor for
eleven successive years, but in 1905,
Dr. Frederick Stock and the Chicago
Symphony Orchestra were engaged,
and have participated during all the
intervening years, the coming festi-
val being the thirtieth consecutive
engagement. This is probably an all-
time record of engagements of this
time between two major organiza-
At the coiming Festival, a new
group will be seen, the Stanley Chor-
us of women's voices, which is the
reorganized Girls' Glee Club of the
