Charl IE--Sept. 3, 1972 rgtnia Women Launch Chamber Music Ticket Drive PARTICIPATE IN MEMBERSHIP DRIVE Mrs. Lowell Warner (left) and Mrs. Jack McGuire On Broadway there may be "No, No, Nanette," but with the Charleston Chamber Music Society it's "Yes, Yes, Nonet." The Czech Nonet (an ensemble of nine people) is part of their schedule for this season. And again the members of the women's committee of the society are getting ready for the membership campaign that begins Tuesday and continues for three weeks. The women's committee is a "working group," and the membership campaign is one of their greatest contributions. The society terms itself "a non-profit organization staffed by volunteers," and these are some of the more active volunteers. Last year's series received critical acclaim, and the upcoming season promises to be equally as brilliant, society officials say. The Smetana String Quartet opens the season Oct. 14. This is the first appearance here of any Czechoslovak ensemble. The Deller Consort, world famed, will appear here Nov. 4. Kenowned countertenor Alfred Deller is the leader and sings with the group. Featuring Renaissance and Baroque music, the group consists of six players and singers including Alfred Deller's son. Joerg Demus, pianist, teams with Josef Suk violinist in a performance Feb. 24. Suk is the great grandson of Antonm Dvorak. The Czech nonet will appear on a Sunday at 7 p.m. Mar. 18. There is a great amount of literature for the nonet, although this is the first such group presented 1 locally. The group comprises violin, viola, cello, double bass, flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon and French horn. A triumphal return of the Borodin String Quartet April 14 will conclude the series. Their previous Charleston concert was considered one of the most moving musical experiences in memory. Officers of the Charleston Chamber Music Society this year are William Maxwell Davis, president; Peter Godfrey, vice president; Mrs. Charles Boll III, secretary, and Richard Herman, treasurer. Jerome Gorby is a new member of the board. Season tickets are available at $10 for adults and $5 for students. All performances will be presented in the auditorium of Morris Harvey College. Season tickets may be ordered from the Charleston Chamber Music Society, P.O. Box 575, Charleston 25372.
