THE UNIVERSITY MUSICAL SOCIETY is organized under an Act of the State of Michigan providing for the incorporation of "Associations not for pecuniary-profit." Its purpose is "to cultivate the public taste for music." All fees are placed at the lowest possible point compatible with sound business principles, the financial side serving but as a means to an educational and artistic end, a fact duly recognized by the Treasury Department of the United States by exempting from War-tax admissions to concerts given under its auspices, and by the United States Post Office Department in admitting its publications to second-class privileges.

CHORAL UNION SERIES--1926-1927
Notices and Acknowledgments
All Concerts will begin on time (Eastern Standard time).
Trumpet calls from the stage will be sounded three minutes before the resumption of the program after the Intermission.
Our patrons are invited to inspect the Stearns Collection of Musical Instruments in the Foyer of the First Balcony and the adjoining room.
To study the evolution, it is only necessary to view the cases in their numerical order and remember that in the wall cases the evolution runs from right to left and from top to the bottom, while the standard cases should always be approached on the left-hand side. Descriptive Lists are attached to each case.
The Musical Director of the Festival desires to express his great obligation to Mr. Joseph E. Maddy, Supervisor of Music in the Ann Arbor Public Schools, for his valuable service as Conductor of the Children's Concert; and to the several members of his staff, for their efficient preparatory work, and to the teachers in the various schools from which the children have been drawn, for their co-operation.
The writer of the Analyses hereby expresses his deep obligation to Dr. A. A. Stanley and Mr. Felix Borowski, whose scholarly analyses, given in the Program Books of the preceding May Festivals and of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, respectively, are authoritative contributions to contemporary criticism and have been drawn upon for some of the analysis in this book.
The Ann Arbor Art Association invites the May Festival guests to an Exhibition of Paintings by Contemporary American Artists in the West Gallery, Alumni Memorial Hall. A selected group of canvasses from the Thirty-ninth Annual American Exhibi­tion at the Art Institute of Chicago (November, 1926), will be shown every afternoon and Thursday and Saturday mornings during May Festival Week.
The programs of the important concerts given during the present season under the auspices of the University Musical Society (with the exception of the May Festival Series) are given in the final pages of this publication.

OVERTURE in D ..........................................Handel
George Frederick Handel was born February 23, 1685, at Halle; died April 14, 1759 at London.
In Handel and Bach's time an Overture as a name for a composition did not have the definite connotation it has today, either as to purpose or to structure. To be sure some of Handel's operas and oratorios were preceded by instrumental music, but the piece so played had little relation to what was to follow and was not expressed in the more perfectly molded designs which Beethoven employed in his overtures, e. g. Leonore No. 3 with which the Second Festival program opens.
The Handelian overtures display great diversity of style and variety of treatment. The influence of the French type of overture developed by Lully is frequently encountered; the overture to the Messiah is cast in this style with a grave introduction strongly chordal, followed by an Allegro move­ment of a fugal nature, in which the horizontal motion of the themes con­trasts with the perpendicular tone relations of the introduction.
The overture with which this concert opens is an arrangement of two separate and distinct pieces by Handel, but selected and juxtaposed so as to be in keeping with the above mentioned plan. The arranger, Dr. Franz Wiillner, used for the slow, first section (Maestoso') the overture to the "Fireworks Music," a group of pieces originally written by Handel to accompany a pyrotechnical display in London in 1759 celebrating the peace of Aix-le-Chapelle. Performed in the open, only wind instruments were employed, later string parts were added to adapt the music to concert use. For the more brilliant second section (Allegro), Dr. Wiillner selected the middle section of a concerto for orchestra in D major. It is of especial interest to note that the theme of the Maestoso is also used by Handel in the first section of this and still one other concerto; thus the "arrangement" for the present program is not a welding of totally strange tonal ele­ments. The Allegro section was originally scored for two oboes, two bassoons, four horns, organ, kettledrums and strings.
"The scores of these pieces in their original form are to be found in the Complete Edition of Handel's Works, in the University Library.
