The second suite of five move
ments from Rossini, 'Matinees Mu
cales" by Benjamin Britten will
follow. The suite, which was writ
ten as a part of a oallet, is in five
movements: March, Nocturne,
Waltz, Pantomime and Moto Per
petuo. The latter makes fun of the
learning of scales and musical in
tervals as traditionally taught in
harmony and theory classes.
Changing moods, the' orchestra
will present Tragic Overture by
Brahms. .
According to Wishnow, this is not
an overture in the strict sense, in
that it is not a piece intended to
precede an opera or some other
musical work. It ;s a piece of ab
solute music not telling a story.
The orchestra will finish the con-
cert with Danse Slave by Cha
brier. Chabrier was a Frenchman
who wrote most successfully the
music of Spain. This piece Is
reminiscent of his better-known
work, "Espana."
The concert is sponsored by the
Union with the co-operation of the
