Waring To
Two Groups
To Sponsor
SMusic Event
Mail orders are continuing for
the Fred Waring concerts which
are scheduled to take place at 7
and 9:30 p.m. Saturday, in Hill
Tickets are priced at $2.40, $1.80
and $1.20 and may be purchased
by writing to 1020 Administration
Building. The University Men's
Glee Club officials request that
checks be made out to their or-
i The Men's Glee Club-Panhellen-
ic Association sponsored show will
highlight the talents of Fred War-
ing, the originator of the famed
Pennsylvanians' glee club and or-
Waring is a native of Tyrone,
Pa., where he learned the basis for
his musical knowledge. His entire
family used to make a habit of
gathering around the piano and
As a Boy Scout, he led the local
Drum and Bugle Corps and form-
ed his first band from the mem-
brs of this group. They played at
local parties and school functions.
When Fred went to Pennsyl-
vania State College to study ar-
chitectural engineering, he still
couldn't get away from his music.
4 He and his band continued to play
at fraternity houses for school
They took on such names as the
Banjazztra (due to the large num-
bers of banjos in the band) the
Snap Orchestra, the Waring's Pen-
cil Sharpeners and finally the
name which stuck, the Pennsyl-
Waring was very interested in
choral work, but his voice was not
sufficiently pleasing to allow him
to join the Penn State Glee Club.
While he was still at college the
Pennsylvanians had an offer to
play as a supporting band at the
J-Hop here at the University.
Gerald Hoag, who was then and
still is manager of a local theatre
in Ann Arbor, took a liking to the
Waring band. He signed them up
for a two week stand in the Ma-
jestic Theatre on Maynard Street.
According to Hoag, the band was
a sensation. It was for this en-
gagement that the Pennsylvanians
introduced their theme song Sleep.
From Ann Arbor Waring was
hired to play in a movie theatre-in
Detroit. It was at this time that
he decided to give up his career as
an architectural engineer, and
concentrate on the music field.
Today the music of the Waring
group has expanded to mean much
more than the Pennsylvanians. It
includes the creation and training
of choral groups, a publishing firm,
and a choral workshop to teach
directors the techniques worked
out by the Glee Clubs.
The concert tour which brings
the Pennsylvanians to Ann Arbor
marks their first coast to coast
tour since 1937.
In making such an extended
concert tour, Waring is fulfilling
a long-standing desire to travel
It is his conviction that in per-
sonal contact with his audiences
during such concerts that all the
warmth and geniality of show-
manship is exposed.
