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 in exempting from tax admissions to concerts given under its auspices.

Notices and Acknowledgments
All concerts will begin on time (Eastern standard time).
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 of musical instruments, it is only necessary to view the cases in their numerical order and remember that in the wall cases the sequence runs from right to left and from top to bottom, while the standard cases should always be approached on the left-hand side. Descriptive lists are attached to each case.
The University Musical Society desires to express appreciation to Thor Johnson and the members of the Choral Union for their effective services; to Miss Juva Higbee, Supervisor of Music in the Ann Arbor Public Schools, and to her able associates for their valuable services in preparation of the Youth Chorus; to the several members of the staff for their efficient assistance 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 Miss Dorothy Eckert for her aid in collecting materials and to the late Mr. Lawrence Gilman, whose scholarly analyses, given in the program books of the New York Philharmonic and Philadelphia Orchestras, are authoritative contributions to contemporary criticism. In some instances Mr. Gilman's analyses have been quoted in this Libretto.
The Steinway is the official concert piano of the University Musical Society and of the Philadelphia Orchestra.
