The Choral Union series of concerts is about to enter on its fifth season. During the four successful seasons that have preceded the one about to open every concert given in the course has been recognized as an event in University life. It is needless to mention the names of those performers who have appeared on its programmes for it is well known that only the best artists and orchestras have been invited to appear in University Hall. The expectations of music-lovers, who have been looking forward to another musical treat this year, will not be disappointed in the announcement of those already secured for the coming season. The first concert will be on Nov. 16. Lillian NĂ³rdica, America's most gifted soprano, MaudPowell," the greatestlivingviolinist,"and J. Erich Schmaal, well known to Ann Arbor audiences, may be heard in one evening. Handel's Messiah, which was given last year just before the Christmas hoiidays, will be repeated by the Choral Union this year. The date will probably be Dec. 19. The fact that Max Heinrich has been heard here for the past two seasons, wiil only increase the desire to listen to him again, when he appears here on Feb. 16. He will be assisted by Hermann A. Zeitz, violinist, instructor in the School of Muslc. No Choral Union course would be complete without the Boston Symphony Orchestra and this great orchestra will be heard as usual sometime in May. The fifth concert will be by the Choral Union, assisted by a f uil orchestra and distinguished soloists. The Manzoni Requiem, one of the greatest productions of the famous composer Verdi, is the work selected, and the concert will undoubtedly be one of the finest ever given by the Choral Union. One date has been left vacant and will be filled later. Each year, after the course has been made out, opportunities to secure distinguished performers have presented themselves, and of necessity have been allowed to pass by. This year it is hoped that any unusual attraction of the kind may be secured without extra expense. Course tickets are placed at the low price of two dollars, and no one at all interested in music should fail to buy one. The October numberof the Michigan Law Journal is just out.
