Appoints Raab

He’ll Be Conductor

For 1955-56 Season

The board of directors of the

Ann Arbor Civic Symphony Or-

chestra today announced the ap-

pointment of Emil Raab as per-

manent conductor of the orches-

tra for the 1955-56 season.

Raab, who is assistant professor

of violin and chamber music at

the University, thus replaces

Orien Dalley as conductor of the

civic orchestra. Dailey resigned

the post in October because of

what he labeled “a lack of uni-

fied understanding and support

of the aims and ideals of the

civic symphony.”

Raab was then named tempor-

ary conductor for the orchestra

for the first concert, which will

be held Sunday in the Michigan

Union ballroom.

Raab, the new conductor, is a

member of the Stanley Quartet.

He received both his bachelor of

music and master of music de-

grees at the University and won

the Stanley Medal, the highest

award given by the School of


Raab has played many sonata

recitals in Ann Arbor and has ap-

peared in solo recitals and as

violin soloist with symphony or-

chestras throughout Michigan.

He is also conductor of the

Jackson Civic Symphony Orches-

tra and directs the Dearborn

String Orchestra and Dearborn

Junior String Orchestra. Last

year he was guest conductor for

both the Plymouth Symphony

Orchestra and the Grosse Pointe

Symphony Orchestra.

The program for Sunday’s con-

cert will be announced later this
