Pix to Sara. and Brad. NEW COlLEGE, SARASOTA, FlORIDA FURMAN C ARTHUR INFORMATION FOR RELEASE: SUNDAY, May 29, 1966 Registrations now are being accepted for the 1966 New College Summer Music Festival to be held on campus from June 19 to July 3. The festival is open to those musicians who wish to study piano, violin, viola, cello, bass, woodwinds, or brass during a concentrated twoweek period with faculty drawn from the top ranks of both teachers and performers. Students at the festival may register for either of two roles--participant or auditor. For participants there are actual class oppor-tunities for performing, ensemble coaching sessions, and workshops de-voted to string techniques in group playing. Auditors may attend any of the classes but do not perform. Both participants and auditors have included in their registra-tion admission to the seven faculty concerts which have been scheduled during the festival. The festival emphasizes chamber music in both teaching and per-formances and many of the faculty perform with outstanding national chamber groups. Registrations again this year will be limited to the number of participating students and auditors that can be effectively worked with under the direction of the faculty. -more-


NEt-T COLLEGE MUSIC FESTIVAL Page 2 Early registrations already have been accepted for a number of students from points as far away as Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Tennessee, in addition to a number of cities in Florida. Classes again this year are being held on the New College campus and although the festival has been extended to two weeks, the schedule of daily activities remains much the same. Mornings are usually devoted to lessons, group sessions, and seminars. Afternoons are a continuation of classes, open rehearsals, and ensemble coaching. Orchestra rehearsals, performances and group sessions are held in the evenings. Each Friday and Saturday night and Sunday afternoon during the festival will be marked by a faculty chamber performance in the Florida t-lest Coast Symphony Hall, open to the public as well as to students. Returning this year to the faculty will be Professor Paul Wolfe, director and violinist; Jacques Abram, piano; Robert Bloom, oboe; Walter Trampler, viola; Patricia Stenberg, woodwinds; and Gaston Dufresne, double bass. New to the faculty for the 1966 festival are Julius Baker, described by Magazine as one of the greatest flute players in the world; cellist Gabor Rejto; John Barrows, french horn; Leslie Parnas, cello; and David Dawson, viola. Tuition for participating students at the festival is $50 a week, while for auditors it is $25. Included in tuition is attendance at the seven concerts, for which tickets will be issued at $3. each. -more-
