Noted Bandmaster Will Lead Band
When It Plays Concert July 2 at
Hill Auditorium
John Philip Sousa will direct his
band in person when it plays Thurs-
day night, July 25, at Hill auditorium.
The famous bandmaster holds a se-
nior lieutenancy in the Naval service,
and has been actively engaged with
his duties in that capaciy,. but has
been granted leave of absence for
the summer and will made a limited
tour with his original band.
Some doubt has been expressed by
Ann Arbor people that Sousa himself
wohld be here. S. A. Moran, through
whose agency the band is being
brought to Ann Arbor, said yesterday,
however, that if Sousa himself did
not come that the band would not
At Hill Auditorium
Mr. Moran originally contracted for
it to appear in the Arcade theater.
He learned through Pr. Louis Hall,
however, that the use of Hill audi-
torium could be obtained in which to
hold a benefit concert for the Red
Cross. Plans were immediatelychang-
ed and the concert will not be held
there, where 5,000 listeners can be
accommodated.' All receipts above
actual expenses will be donated to
the county Red Cross fund.
Patriotic music will be featured on
the program. Sousa has written sev-
eral new compositions since entrance
of the United States into the war,
and these will be played, in addition
to old favorites.
Featunes Two Vocalists
Miss Ruby Helder and Miss Mdr-
jorie Moody are the two vocalists
appearing on the Sousa program.
Miss Helder is an English woman,
who has had remarkable success on
both sides of the Atlantic. She has
appeared many times at Albert and
Queen's halls in London, and from sea-
son to season in annual engagements
at Buxton, Blackpool, and other plac-
es. A peculiarity of her singing is
her ability to sing tenorfroles.
Miss Moody comes from Lynn,
Mass, and sang with Sousa for the
first time sout a year ago, at a
Sunday night concert in Boston at the
Boston Opera House. Her success
was immediate. A public recital fol-
lowed shortly afterward at Steinert
Mall n Boston, in which she won
fresh-laurels. She is only 20 years of
Several Classical Numbers
Some classical studies, in addition
to the popular march numbers, will
be played by Sousa, as an examina-
tion of the program which follows
shows. There is a character study by
Mr. Sousa, entitled "The Dwellers in
