X56 MAY FESTIVAL:
Ormandy Says 'Audiences Are Alike'
"These students," Ormandy said,
"attended the Festivals. Here they
heard some of the greatest music
ever performed by one of the
world's great orchestras and, by
some of the world's greatest artists.
This gave them an inspiration
when they left college-an inspira-
tion that enabled them to carry on
in their own communities as heads
of some of the civic concert or-
ganizations working for the better-
ment of music."
The Maestro's message advised
students "to think about how much
the Festivals meant to students
in the past and how much benefit
they derived from the Festivals.
Present day students," he said,
"should also, be able to benefit
from the Festivals."
During the interview, Conduc-
tor Ormandy pointed out the part
played by Musical Society presi-
dent Charles A. Sink.
"Dr. Sink," Ormandy said, "has
been and is one of the most co-
operative festival heads I have ever
met and worked with anywhere in
the world. It is a joy to work with
this man. He works hard and
doesn't let an opportunity go by"
should there be a chance of billing
"the greatest available talent."
Ormandy has conducted the
Philadelphia Orchestra in 20 con-
secutive May Festival series.
"We always try," Maestro Eu-
gene Ormandy concluded, "to make
each concert enjoyable."

"Programs for a concert are con-'
structed like a house is construct-
Eugene Ormandy was speaking.
"The works, that is, the sym-
phonies, must fit the construction
of the building. In other words,
you have to serve a musical menu
to cover the six concerts of 'the'
Festival. You, have a great oppor-
tunity to serve a perfectly bal-
anced musical menu, a menu which.
must list works of the masters, as
well as include compositions of
composers of the present."
In an interview yesterday, Eu-
gene Ormandy, distinguished con-
ductor of the Philadelphia Orch-
estra, commented on University
Musical Society's annual May Fes-
tival concert series.
"Year after year;" he said, "this
is something we all look forward
to. We have given between 140
and 150 concerts this year, and
the Festival is actually the climax
of our season.
"This Festival," Maestro Orman-,
dy said, "has not only been built
on a great orchestra, stars and
choruses, but also on the music.
People Love the Music
"People who come to a concert
come because they love great mu-
sic and want to hear, accept and
enjoy it," he said.
When queried as to whether
there are any differences between
University audiences and those of
the "outside world," Maestro Or-
mandy replied, "it is my firm con-
viction that there is no basic dif-
ference between audiences any-
where. All audiences,", he said,
"love great music. That is Why
they come to concerts. Their love
for good music is what makes them
Conductor Ormandy arrived in
Ann Arbor shortly after noon yes-

League, he relaxed for a moment
and formed a message to the stu-
dents of the University, a message
which the Maestro bases ".. . on
