As a result, Amparo has been invited to return to England next fall for 20 recitals, including a solo performance with the London symphony. In the United States, too, she is being recognized. She was chosen to open the summer season of Philadelphia Robin Hood Dell as soloist with the orchestra and will be soloist with the New York Philharmonic at Lewisohn stadium on Aug. 4.

Students Give 9th Symphony Julliard School Presents Beethoven One of the pleasant surprises of ..he New York music season as it drew to its close was the presen- •ation of Beethoven's Ninth Symphony by the Julliard School of JVEusic. It was given in Carnegie Hall to a capacity audience which contributed handsomely to the students' fund of the school. The performers were all students of Julliard. There was a full symphony orchestra, a chorus of 250 trained by Robert Shaw, and the usual soloists. The conductor was Serge Koussevitzky, who agreed to serve in the interests of stimulating the aspiring young musicians under his charge for the occasion. The result was astounding. Schiller's "Ode to Joy," as conceived by Beethoven in extremely difficult music, was not only fresh and inspiring but done with musicianship which on many pcca- sions has not even been approached by seasoned professionals. Among the 4 soloists, Marquita Moll and John Druary had the trying soprano and tenor roles. Both are sure to be heard from in the professional field, and possibly in a big way. Alexander Brott Sails to Europe for Concerts Alexander Brott, Canadian conductor and composer, has sailed for Europe to conduct concerts in England, France, The Netherlands, Sweden, Belgium, Switzerland, Italy and Luxembourg. He will feature his own and other Canadian music, most of which will be heard in Europe for the first time. His major purpose will be to introduce his symphonic suite "From Sea to Sea," which has attained recognition on this side of the Atlantic. Sir Thomas Beecham will conduct it with the Roya Philharmonic in London in October. SUNDAY VOCALIST — Charlotte Kiesselbach will share vocal soloist honors at the regular Sunday evening concert of the municipal band with John Brookins. "Sing Me to Sleep" and "Lamour Toujour Lamour" will be Mrs. Kiesselbach's 2 vocal offerings. SOPRANO TO RETURN Virginia MacWatters, youn; American soprano, who sang wit! the Guatemala Symphony orches tra earlier this year, will return to Guatemala City in mid-July fo 6 operatic appearances. MIDWEEK VOCALIST—Leroy Spurgeon will be the baritone soloist in the "Wednesday evening concert of the municipal band. Mr. Spurgeon's 2 solo presentations will be "None But the Lonely Heart" and "Dancing in the Dark."

The Schubert concerts, to be given on the 4 Wednesday evenings of July, are a contribution of the Elizabeth Sprague Coolidge foundation. * AIDS FOR BETTERING YOUR GAME OF GOLF Nationally Advertised GOLF BALLS 50c to 95c ea.
