The choristers will sing from the south porch of Gardencourt, home of the University of Louisville School of Music, on Alta Vista Road. Chairs for the audience will be placed on the terrace, facing the porch. Sponsored by the Harvard Club of Louisville, the engagement here is one of a series which takes the 50 selected singers from coast-to-coast in a two-month tour. In August they are scheduled for a return appearance at the Berkshire Festival in Tanglewood, Mass., when they will join the Boston Symphony Orchestra in a performance of Berlioz" "The Damnation of Faust."

Professor Woodworth has devised a program that commands respect from the musician, and at the same time offers an appealing THE MEANING OF AMERICA All Seems To Be Going for The Best As Long As Business Has Confidence THINGS MOVE confidently along in America. Few of the dark, long-harbored forebodings have thus far been fulfilled; and as the nation enters upon its second half of the current year there is an atmosphere of great promise. If the economy is not as ' robust in all segments as could be wished for, the Cassandras, resigned to the futility of their disheveled dreams of economic prostrati.:', are beginning to desert the ranks f the defeatists. Indeed it is to be marveled at that such dislocations as have been encountered have been so well contained what with the United States giving lavishly of its substance in its assumed role of the global fairy godfather, trying to be all things to all nations, at the same time having to expend her eneios and resources against the horrifying threat of another war. Generally Brisk Business generally continues brisk as measured by the accepted indices: steel output holds above 70 per cent of capacity; automobile production is not far off the blistering pace of a year ago; the use of electrical energy continues to exceed last year's rate; corporations have earmarked more than 27 billion dollars for new productive facilities as against the record 1953 outlay U S I C ON By ANGELA PREI8 VERDI'S RIGOLETTO is broadcast from the stage of the Cincinnati Zoo Opera tonight at 8:15 on WLW.

Matinee Work THE LOUISVILLE Orchestra's last Saturday matinee on July 10 before a summer break of six weeks will feature a new work by student composer Paul Nelson. Nelson is a 24-year-old composer from Thoenix, Ariz., and has been attending Teachers College of Columbia University. His previous work was done at Arizona State College, University of Southern California, Colorado College and the Berkshire Music Center at Tanglewood. By JOHN COLEMAN of some 28 billion; business failures and unemployment have been declining; consumer spending is not far below its all-time peak; there is promise of peaceful labor relations; building construction bids fair to exceed all previous figures; the financial and physical condition of the railroads is sound; corporate dividend payments are likely to set a new high. Money at Work Money is plentiful and rates are low; savings and idle investment funds are ready and anxious to be put to use: the recent $300,-000,000 bond issue the first installment of the billion-dollar New York Thruway project- which engineers estimate will be traveled, when completed in 1958, by some 90,000,000 vehicles a year, paying about $70,000' a day in tolls, was heavily oversubscribed. The tax burden has been reduced, however grudgingly; the volume of national advertising is some 10 per cent larger than a year earlier; an unprecedented wheat harvest a "Cinderella Crop" is in the making; the Census Bureau projects a population growth of some 15,000,000 souls by 1960.

His early training included studying the French horn and trumpet in the Phoenix public schools, and during the 1949-50 season, Nelson played first trumpet with the Phoenix copies of a forward-looking booklet entitled "The Future of America" citing what it calls a 500-billion-d o 1 1 a r opportunity open to Americans, calling for the greatest individual, industrial and scientific effort in peacetime history. It emphasizes the many changes that have been taking place in the economy, what tomorrow's needs are likely to be, and what expenditures may be required for new homes, schools, roads, factories, power, entertainment, research, inventions. These risks are not taken in times of trepidation and caution; yesterday's dreams do not become today's realities when men lack faith: The modern world with Us high mobility and quick communications requires enterprise and boldness. There is a calculated risk in everything in every stage of American development. The nation was built by men who took risks: pioneers who were not afraid of the wilderness, businessmen who were not afraid of failure, scientists who were not afraid, of the truth, thinkers who were not afraid of progress, dreamers who were not afraid of action. When there is no risk, but only prudence, the American way of life may be regarded as finished. Brooks Atkinson in "Once Around The World."

While serving three years in the Army, Nelson played in the band and taught at the Band Training Unit in Fort Ord, Cal., from October, 1950, to June, 1951, when he became staff arranger for the U. S. Military Academy Band at West Point, where he remained until October, 1953. During his last year there he also held the position of choir director at the West Point Post Chapel and played piano in one of the post dance bands. Other Compositions In addition to the "Theme and Passacaglla," which won a Louisville Orchestra award, Nelson' compositions include works for concert band, choruses and chamber groups. In 1951, he received first prize for his orchestral "Variations on A Western Folksong" in a competition sponsored by the Festival of Southwestern Arts,, and in 1952, he was awarded first prize from the Friends of Harvey Gaul in Pittsburgh for his Easter Cantata. Nelson also did extensiv arranging in the dance-band field on the West Coast before his induction into the Army, and in 1947 he won 22d place in the annual nationwide arrangers' poll sponsored by 'DownBeat, national trade magazine. Nelson's "Theme and Passa-caglia" has been chosen by the Louisville Orchestra to receive one of its student awards ($500 and four public readings by the Orchestra). The composer supplied the following program notes: "The 'passacaglia (possibly from the Spanish 'passacalle c street dance or song) originated as a dance, and with Baroque composers attained popularity as a basis for continual variations over a 'basso ostinato' or ground FREIBERG!

A Description "In my 'Theme and Passacaglia,' the melody is stated in the opening by a solo bassoon and undergoes a process of repetition and extension by the orchestra until a soft harmonic statement of the theme by two trumpets and two horns, interrupted by two flutes and two clarinets, announces the entrance of the passacaglia by the cellos and brasses. There follows a series of solo variations, each solo instrument or section in turn repeating in its own range the 'ostinato,' itself a variation of the original theme, while another contrasting variation is woven about it. "The final section, for full orchestra, is an almost completely diatonic recapitulation of the previously chromatic melody in a similar harmonic setting. And as at the beginning, the solo bassoon enters, this time to close with a short coda based on the theme." On the July 10 program, "The Enchanted Island" by Ernest Bacon - and "John Henry" by another student composer, Donald Harris, also will be heard. The Saturday Matinee programs will be resumed on August 28. ALSO APPLIANCE REPAIRS Convenient Side Street Parkinq W A $132 VACATION TIE DANCE!
