I page2 Premiere On June 14, Laderman's composition, Double Helix, will be performed by Baker as flutist, Robert Bloom as oboist, together with the New College String Quar-tet. Stewart, professor of music and fine arts at Washington and Lee University, is widely known as a composer. His compositions have been performed by some of the leading groups for contemporary music, including The Composers Forum, Music In Our Time, The Group for Contemporary Music, and New Dimensions in Music Series. In 1965, he composed a Brass Quintet for the annual Symposium of Contemporary Music for Brass in Atlanta, Ga. and at the same meeting another composition was accorded a major prize. Laderman is recognized as one of today's versatile young composers of serious music. He has held three separate fellowships, won a Prix de Rome, and been awarded grants from the Martha Baird Rockefeller and Ford Foundations. more


page 3 Premiere About six years ago, Laderman decided to devote his full time to composition. Since then his score for the documentary film of Mrs. Elemnor Roosevelt's life received special critical notice and the film was awarded an Oscar. A new work for two narrators and orchestra written in collaboration with Archibald MacLeish with text and poems and letters by Emily Dickinson, received its world premiere during the 1967 series of the New York Philharmonic Promenade Concerts. Laderman hopes to complete a larger work for orchestra, a piece of chamber music, and a dramatic work each year. Their works will be part of the two-week festival which includes daily classes for musicians and five public weekend concerts beginning on June 1. Other artists, in addition to Barrows, Baker and Bloom, who will be brought here by musical director Paul Wolfe, are pianist Leonid Hambro, violist Walter Trampler, clarineetist Robert Marcellus, cellist Bernard ---Greenhouse, bassist Gaston Dufresne and bassoonist Sol Schoenbach. more

During the second week of the Festival, Joseph Silverstein, concertmaster of the Boston Symphony Orchestra and chairman of the String Department of the New England Conservatory of Music will give a number of master classes. Dr. Arthur R. Borden Jr., Festival administrator as well as chairman of the Division of Humanities of New College, said that this year the Festival had received a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts through the Florida Development Commission. #
