concert music.

works with the Philadelphia Sym-
phony Orchestra during the May

7th ANNUAL EXTRA CONCERT SERIES

The fast - stepping Michigan
Marching Band will move onto
the football field within a few
weeks in a sparkling display of
the precision drill work and musi-
cianship which has brought the
organization fame and high re-
spect throughout the nation.
Students and thousands of oth-
er loyal fans will again be treat-
ed with an afternoon of intricate
formations and inspiring playing
as the band opens a new year of
typically credible accomplishment
in the realm of University musi-
cal presentation.
* * .
THE MARCHING BAND is but
one of the high-calibre student in-
strumental music groups which
perform here under the able baton
of Prof. William Revelli.

Though perhaps less spectac-
ular, the Michigan Symphony
Band, which takes over the spot-
light after the end of the foot-
ball season, is of comparable
musical stature and its concerts
in Ann Arbor and elsewhere
have thrilled thousands.
Augmenting the two top-rank-
ing groups is the Varsity Band
which performshat several con-
certs and at home basketball
games.
The Varsity Band's emphasis,
however, is on experience rather
than actual performance as it
serves as a training ground for
students working their way into
the Symphony and Marching
bands.
The University's bands function
as extra-curricular activities un-

der direction of members of the
Music School faculty.
* * *
BECAUSE of a new change in
University policy, all first semes-
ter freshmen will be eligible to
take part in band activities this
fall.
