ARS LONGA VITA BREVIS
Choral Union Concerts
October 27--Boston Symphony Orchestra, Serge Koussevitzky,
Conductor
This renowned American orchestra was last heard in this series a decade and a half ago. Conductor Koussevitzky has never before appeared in Ann Arbor.
November 17--Ossip Gabrilowitsch, Russian Pianist
Distinguished alike as a virtuoso pianist and a conductor, Mr. Gabrilowitsch has won musical immortality in both fields. On this occasion, he will appear in a full piano recital.
December 3--The Revelers
James Melton, First Tenor Phil Dewey, Baritone
Lewis James, Second Tenor Wilfred Glenn, Bass Frank Black, Director and Pianist
December 15--Detroit Symphony Orchestra, Ossip Gabrilowitsch,
Conductor
One of America's great orchestras under the baton of its
own renowned conductor.
January 13--Don Cossack Russian Chorus, Serge Jaroff, Conductor
So great was this organization's triumph last season that it has been re-engaged in response to many insistent demands from a well-pleased public.
January 25--Detroit Symphony Orchestra
On this occasion the orchestra will be led by Dr. Rudolf Siegel, of Berlin.
February 4--Yehudi Menuhin, Violinist
Menuhin is acknowledged to be the most phenomenal boy violinist of the time. For several years he has astounded American and European audiences in the limited number of engagements which his managers have permitted him to accept. Now at the "ripe age" of fourteen or fifteen he will make his Ann Arbor debut.
February 19--Percy Grainger, Australian-American Pianist One of the most popular present-day piano virtuosi.
March 7--Rosa Ponselle, Soprano
This artist would probably be voted the "greatest soprano of today" if the great critics and music lovers who have heard her were called upon for an expression. A decade ago, during her first operatic season, she appeared in Ann Arbor, and on several occasions since then, repeated her first triumph.
Season tickets (with $3.00 May Festival coupon) : $6.00, $8.00, $10.00, and $12.00.
