COMMENTS FROM AUTHORITIES
WALTER DAMROSCH, CONDUCTOR, NEW YORK SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA :--"The annual May Festival stands in the front rank of such events and its influence on the community cannot be overestimated. I am especially interested in the two principal works to be performed this May, the Beethoven Mass in D, and the Choral Symphony by Hoist, and wish with all my heart that I were free to hear them."
JAMES FRANCIS COOKE, EDITOR, THE ETUDE, Philadelphia:-"There is a thrill that comes with the presentation of such a magnificent musical festival as you have organized that can only be accounted for through an understanding of the history of our race. The presence of a great chorus, a Wonderful orchestra, and no less than a dozen of the world's foremost artists, all gathering in person are sure to make this festival a remarkable occasion. Great musical festivals are civilization builders and I extend my heartiest congratulations to Mr. Earl V. Moore, to yourself and to all those who have organized this splendid occasion. I only regret I will be out of the country and cannot make it possible to attend in person."
H. L. BUTLER, PRESIDENT MUSIC TEACHERS' NATIONAL ASSOCIATION, and DEAN OF SCHOOL OF FINE ARTS, SYRACUSE UNIVERSITY. "Please accept my congratulations upon the fine series of artists and organizations you are offering for your May Festival. You are evidently doing everyihing to spread the gospel of good music. Such a strong list of attractions well deserves fine support."
GEORGE L. LINDSAY, PRESIDENT, NATIONAL EDUCATIONAL ASSOCIATION, Philadelphia:--"We in Philadelphia are doing our utmost to develop an annual music festival, of the type which you have so successfully presented at Ann Arbor. I wish to congratulate you and all of your co-workers for the vision which makes possible the presentation of six concerts with the galaxy of stars, both conductors and soloists, whom you have assembled for your May Festival in 1927. You are setting a standard for such affairs which is worthy of the highest spirit of emulation."
L. E. BEHYMER, CONCERT MANAGER, Los Angeles:--"I find the series unusually attractive and a group of artists of great interest to the musical world, and of irresistable attraction both in artistry and educational authority. I am really surprised that a city of that size is able to give such a bargain in musical values. If your department stores, book counters or groceries should advertise such bargains you would of necessity be compelled to employ the entire police force to keep the public from breaking in to be served. Here's hoping it will be necessary to use the same procedure regarding the May Festival. Good luck to you."
WILLIAM WADE HINSHAW, IMPESARIO, New York:--"Again you have announced a fine program for your annual May Festival, the very finest musical event of the whole of America. Although each program seems to be the best that could be offered, you manage to offer a still better one each season. For the past ten years or more I have made the trip from New York to Ann Arbor just to hear your wonderfully fine Festival, and I hope to go again this season, as usual, even though I do have to travel nearly two thousand miles to make the journey and return."
