Society Arranges Many
Concerts, Two Festivals

Although the University Musical
Society has gained a maximum
of fame for bringing to the cam-
pus each spring the world-known
May Festival, the society also
arranges each year for musical
offerings to please every taste,
ranging from the Vienna Choir
Boys to the Budapest String Quar-
tet.
The seventy-sixth annual Choral
Union Series will present ten con-
certs. Opening the season will be
Roberta Peters, soprano, on Oct.
4. Miss Peters has starred in per-
formances at the Metropolitan and
at London's Royal Opera. She has
also appeared on radio and tele-
vision shows, including "Toast of
the Town," and in the movies as
the lead in "Tonight We Sing."
The Societa Corelli will follow
on Oct. 15. An Ann Arbor favorite,
the Boston Symphony orchestra,
under the direction ofrCharles
Munch, will perform Oct. 20.
Later Concerts
The Cleveland Orchestra, con-
ducted by George Szell, will be
the first offering in November.
Pianist Jorge Bolet will perform
Nov. 15. Known both north and
south of the border, Bolet made
his debut with the New York

'U' Symphony
Has Openings
For Freshmen
Starting its second regular sea-
son under the direction of Prof.
Josef Blatt, the University Sym-

In addition to four or five reg-

Rehearsal Schedule
The Symphony rehearses at 3
p.m. Monday, Tuesday, Wednes-
day and Friday and at 7 p.m.

Hall.
The orchestra can be a credit
course or an extra-curricular ac-
tivity. According to Prof. Blatt,
it provides an excellent opportun-
ity for literary college students
to keep up their proficiency and
also play some of the best orches-
tral music.
Prof. Blatt first came to the
University in 1952 after serving
as assistant conductor of the Met-
ropolitan Opera Company in New
York. He has also been a guest
conductor of the New York Phil-
harmonic and the Vienna Concert
Orchestra. At the University, he
directs Opera Workshop in addi-
