NEW COLLEGE, SARASOTA, FLORIDA FURMAN C ARTHUR INFORMATION FOR RELEASE: SUNDAY, February 27, 1966 Early morning concerts of serious music are being repeated this year on the New College campus after a successful series last year. Given as part of the humanities program of the college and especially for first year students, the bi-weekly concerts under the direction of Professor Wolfe provide live demonstrations of various musical forms. Starting at eight o'clock in the Music Room of College Hall, the series features this year a string quartet, a piano-violin recital, a brass quartet, and a woodwind quintet. During the first term of classes in the fall, students begin to study the problems of aesthetics, a philosophical approach to various art forms. In the second term they delve into music and art more seriously, and in the third study in the world of literature. Professor Wolfe feels the concerts give the students an opportunity to see serious music performed, to hear lectures about various instruments and music forms, and even to question the musicians about particular phases of performances. The first of the conc-erts, given several t 7eeks ago, utili.zed four string players to trace the development of quartet music from its development by Hayden in the late 18th Century through Beethoven., Hendelssohn, Brahms and to the early 20th Century composers such as von Hebern and Turina. -more-

Violist David Cohen, for instance, explained the technical matter of performing on that instrument. a physicist, also detailed how sounds are actually produced on strineed instruments, delving into the semi-scientific area of vibration. Professors Holfe and Jacques Abram offered the violin and piano recital. A group of students visit the college in mid-Harch under the direction of faculty member Patricia Stenberg to provide music from woodwind instruments. Holfe is also arranging for a quartet of brass players to perform. The concerts were initiated last year and lvorked so admirably in explaining the intricacies of music to the students that it was agreed the program should be repeated. Despite the early hour of the concerts, the programs turn out large numbers of students, including many upperclass students who already have taken the course, -30-
