ARTHUR SARASOTA--Three major musical figures have been added to the faculty of the Summer Music Festival, to be held beginning May 31 at New College, with the support of the National Endowment for the Arts and the Florida Development Commission. Pianist Leonid Hambro, clarinetist Robert Marcellus and bassoonist Sol Schoenbach join the other seven members of the faculty, most of whom are now in their fourth Festival yearo Paul Wolfe again heads the list of faculty and performing artists, and is musical director of the entire Festival. Other faculty members are flutist Julius Baker, oboist Robert Bloom, French horn player John Barrows, bassist Gaston Dufresne, cellist Bernard Greenhouse, and violist Walter Trampler. These artists will be assisted during the Festival by members .of the New College String Quartet and also by members of area symphony orchestras. more


NEW COLLEGE -PAGE 2 In their dual roles, the faculty artists will teach during the two weeks of the Festival and perform in the five public concerts scheduled for June 1, 7, 8, 14 and 15. Leonid Hambro will perform in the opening concert with the String Quartet in a program of music by Telemann, Bartok and Brahms. The concert will be held at New College's Hamilton Center on June 1. Pianist Hambro, a man of two personalities in the world of music, is most widely known for his appearances as an accompanist with pianist-comedian Victor Borge. The world of fine music knows Hambro for other accomplishments, including his position as official pianist with the New York Philharmonic, his teaching at the Juilliard School of Music, and his many appearances with u.s. and European symphony orchestras. Clarinetist Marcellus has a solid musical reputation including three years as principal clarinetist with the National Symphony of Washington and 15 years in the same position with the Cleveland Orchestra under George Szell. Marcellus also teaches at the Cleveland Institute of Music. Principal bassoonist with the Philadelphia Orchestra for 20 years, Schoenbach shows a multi-dimensioned personality. He was graduated from New York University and was elected to Phi Beta Kappa for his work in political economy and linguistics, honors gathered while he was a member of the CBS Symphony. He was engaged by Eugene Ormandy and Leopold Stokowski at the age of 22 as solo bassoonist with the Philadelphia Orchestra. Now executive director of the Settlement School of Music, he is on the faculty of Curtis Institute of Music. more -


NEW COLLEGE Page 3 The three new members of the faculty will teach during the two week period devoted to instrumental master classes, sonata master classes and ensemble sessions. Students are expected to come to the New College campus from all parts of the country to study with the 10 faculty. A large number of local area students have been enrolled, many of them on scholarships provided by local patrons of the Festival. Expected to be popular again this year will be the role of the auditor, mostly lovers or instrumentalists who are not prepared for master classes. Auditors have all of the rights of the participating students of sitting in classes, attending rehearsals and concerts. Festival Administrator Dr. Arthur R. Borden Jr. said that it is one of the greatest opportunities for two weeks of participating in a concentrated and highly charged atmosphere of fine music. Four concerts are being held on Friday and Saturday evenings at 8:30 in the main room of Hamilton Center on the college's East Special acoustical treatment has been added to Hamilton Center since the 1967 Festival to make the sound of the music carry evenly through the air conditioned hall. The fifth and final concert will be held in Neel Auditorium at Manatee Junior College on June 15 at 8:30 p.m. The larger auditorium was needed because of the full symphony orchestra assembled to perform with soloists Baker, Hambro and Trampler. more -
