Musical barnstorming around
the country and conducting some
four different choral groups and
several extra choruses is all in
a week's work for Prof. Maynard
Klein, conductor of the University
choirs.
And all this week's work in
whipping hundreds of voices into
shape will be climaxed when the
222-voice University Choir pre-
sents a.Bach anniversary concert
at 8:30 p.m. Sunday in Hill Audi-
torium, marking the 200th anni-
versary of the composer's death.
* * *
THE UNIVERSITY CHOIRS, as
distinguished from the Choral
Union "festival" chorus, is a group
of choirs who warble, not mainly
for performance, but for the sake
of singing everything from Bach
to DeBussy.
Prof. Klein came to the Uni-
versity last year, and . has built
up four outstanding choruses
out of what was a small choir
rehearsing only a few hours
each week.
First of the choirs is the Uni-
versity Choir itself, 240 voices re-
hearsing five hours a week for
college credit. The Arts Chorale,
organized last year as a literary
college group, has grown to 160
members representing 10 schools.
A THIRD CHORUS, the Tudor
Singers, is a group of students
specializing in the music of the
Tudor period, including pieces
rom Italian and Dutch reper-
toires.
And the Michigan Singers is'
the fourth choir, made up strict-
ly of music school students.
Most of the pieces sung by the
group are heard for the first time
where they are performed, Prof.
Klein explained. They perform for
such organizations as Religion-In-
Life week and Inter-Arts Festival.
IN ADDITION to his tight sche-
luleon campus, Prof. Klein drives
to Detroit every Tuesday to con-
duct the Detroit Rackham Choir,
a 175-voice chorus sponsored by
the University Extension Service.
It is made up of alumni,
teachers, housewives and busi-
ness men, or anyone who wants
to sing.
Its work this year will be cli-
naxed by a performance of Men-
lelssohn's "Elijah," in May.
WHILE the Choral Union is a
festival choir and rehearses each
semester for a Christmas concert
and another at the May Festival,
the University choirs study every-
thing from early motets to 16th
:entury opera, delving into the
m-ost modern music too, Prof.
Klein said.
They will have a total of 17 con-
-erts under their belts at the end
of the semester and by June, Prof.
Klein will have conducted in the
past year 15,000 different indi-
vidualti in more than 50 concerts
all the way from Michigan to Ark-
ansas.

University faculty members
hailed the growing success of the
Inter-Cooperative Council at its
annual membership dinner last
night at Lane Hall.
The guest speakers were Prof. A.
K. Stevens of the English depart-
ment; DeWitt C.'Baldwin, direc-
or of the Student Religious Asso-
ciation and Prof. John F. Shep-
ard of the psychology department.
"Cooperatives have more educa-
tional value than any other type
of campus organization," Prof.
Shepard pointed out. And Baldwin
added that "cooperatives are one
of the finest ways of supplemept-
ing a formal education."
Prof. Stevens commended co-
operatives for their political
awareness. He said that in these
times when free discussion is re-
stricted, cooperatives still retain
political leadership.
