String Quartet and two concerts
by the Detroit Symphony Orchestra
with Ossip Gabrilowitsch wielding
the baton, will provide ten prog-
rams in the coming season of
Choral Union Concerts.
This array of brilliant singers,
spectacular instrumental soloist*s
and ensemble groups will constitute
a series of headi liners such as has
seldom been heard in a single series
anywhere in the world of music.
Their united artistic assets stand
out as a most worthy assemblage
of musical attractions to inaugurate
the first season of the second half
century of musical endeavors on
the part of the University Musical
Society, under whose auspices the
Choral Union and May Festival
concerts are provided.
In accordance with the policy
inaugurated last year for the semi-
centenary series, ten concerts will
be given. The schedule of prices
for season tickets will remain the
same as last year, that is, $6.00,
$8.00, $10.00 and $12.00. Each sea-
son ticket will contain a coupon
good for $3.00 in exchange later in
the year for a season May Festival
ticket. All mail orders for tickets
will be filed in sequence and filled
in the same order except that, all
orders which accumulate before
September 1st, will be considered
as of that data and will be treated
accordingly. Also, subscribers of
record for patron's tickets for the
last May Festival will have the
privilege of retaining their same
seat location provided that their
orders are received not later than
September 1st, at the office of the
School of Music on special blanks
mailed to each such subscriber of
The schedule of attractions and
dates is as follows:
October 15, Giovanni Martinelli
in recital. He was born at Montag-
nana, Italy, in 1885. Young Gio-
vanni was one of a dozen or more
children. His father was a cabinet
maker and unable to give him a
musical education. As a child he
sang in the village choir, but his
voice at that time attracted no
particular attention. He had learn-
ed o play the clarinet and when
the time came for him to serve in
the Italian Army, he joined a
regimental band. In 1912, he created
a sensation at Convent Garden,
London, Ont. In 1913, he became
a regular member of the Metro-
politan Opera Company and since
that time has risen to the position
of principal tenor. He has created
numerous leading roles and has a
repertoire which includes principal
parts in many operas'.
The full and varied activity of
the Detroit Symphony Orchestra is
a romance of musical achievement.
This is the orchestra's fourteenth
-season-the ninth under the con-
ductorship of Ossip Gabrilowitsch.
In this short time, it has built itself
solidly into its home city and
has won its place among the best
orchestras of the world.
Detroit is singularly fortunate in
having a conductor who, in addi-
tion to international musical re-

String Quartet. This Quartet, made
up of Jene Lener, Joseph Smi-
lovits, Sandor Roth, and Imre Hart-
man, comes to America for the first
time this fall. It is one of the
famous quartets of today. Each
member is a product of the Buda-
pest Academy renowned for its in-
strumental traditions; each man is
under 35 years of age.
Jeno Lener, the leader, Joseph
Smilovits, second violin, and San-
dor Roth, viola, are all pupils of
the old master Hubay; Imre Hart-
man, 'cellist, of the great Popper.
Lener and Smilovits were born
in 1895; Roth and Hartman in 1896.
Lener was the child prodigy of
Hubay's "master class". At the age
of 11 he was one of the first violin-
ists in the Budapest Grand Opera.
Smilovits won the coveted Remenyi
Prize while a student at the Buda-
pest Academy. Roth, prior to join-
ing the Quartet, was a member of
the faculty of the Academy and
often gave concerts there. Hart-
man won the Popper prize, which
was 200 gold crowns per annum for
five years. All are well known as
sold artists as well as for their en-
semble work.
