34 THE LEADER-POST, REGINA, SASK. AUGUST 2, 1971 Film festival The Yorkton International Biennial Documentary Y i I m Festival which will be held Oct. 18 to 23, is North America's oldest continuing international film festival and one of the three major festivals of its type still existing in the world, being ranked by film makers along with the festivals in Cannes and Edinburgh. The first Yorkton Festival was held in October, 1950, as a project of the five-year old Yorkton Film Council. This was the first festival of its kind to be held in North America and received 60 documentary entries from embassies and film makers around the world. Since that time 10 biennial film festivals have been held the most recent being in 1909. The fact that the Yorkton MRS. SONJA WEIR Piano Teacher 108 Birchwood Crescent 584-3725 festival is considered one of the leading international festivals in the documentary film world is indicated by the number of entries received, by the number of embassies that have sent representatives, and by the awards which the Festival has received. Interest, nationally and internationally, has continued at a high level through the years with entries averaging around 100 films at each festival. Entries have been received from Japan, Germany, Australia, New Zealand, Czechoslovakia, France South Africa, Norway, Denmark, Russia, Poland, Great Britian, United States and Canada. Embassy representatives have included those from the German Republic, Russia, France. Japan, and Britain. In 1957, the Yorkton Film Council, which originated and has continued to sponsor the event, received a special award from the Association of Motion Picture Producers and Laboratories of Canada "in recognition of this outstanding International Film Festival." The Yorkton Film Council is the organization which, over the years, has been responsible for planning and operating the Festival.

Academy of Musical Education 1762 Scarth 1767 Scarth Regina 107 Main North, Moose Jaw 693-1400 fa j Kxi ciTHy The Jeunesses Musicales MUSICIANS AT WORK: This group at the Morley College in south, east London represent a small section of the 4,500 students who attend classes in many branches of music. The main function of the college, which became famous at the turn of the century for its musical tuition, is to encourage the amateur, although it has an impressive record for its value to the professional. A powerhouse of music By MICHAEL GRAUBART Director of Music at Morley College At Morley College in south cast London, there are more than 4,500 students most of them amateurs who get special enjoyment In learning all about music. Morley is open to almost anyone and its aim is to give the student an unrivalled variety and freedom. This article looks at the origins of an unusual college in which the professional musician of tomorrow rubs shoulders with the enthusiastic amateur and both benefit equally from Britain's most unusual powerhouse of musical learning Adult education in Britain began in the 19th century as a means of social reform. Today, in the many adult education institutes run by the education authorities and at those historic colleges that remain independent in spite of being financed, as far as their running costs are concerned, by the authorities, the emphasis is on the enrichment of leisure. . Morley College in south-cast London, perhaps the best-known of the independent colleges, began as an attempt to clean up the entertainment offered at the Victoria Theatre (which became the famous Old Vic. and is now the home of the National Theatre Company). Thus a connection with theatre and music was there from the beginnings in the 1880s. But its real musical fame dates from Gustav Hoist's appoinlment as Director of Music in 1907. The cumulative effect in attracting talented students and, in-turn, in attracting more outstanding tutors many of whom have preferred Morley to the academic orthodoxy of the "professional" music colleges has continued to this day. Hoist's successors have included Sir Michael Tippett, Peter Racine Fricker and John Gardner while, to choose among many, Walter Goehr, Matyas Seiber, Ralph Vaughan Williams, Peter Pears, Joan Cross, Norbert Brainin, Lawrence Leonard, Use Wolf and Katharina Wol-pe have taught here. Many famous musicians such as Janet Baker, began their careers by working at Morley, and these included refugees during the last war. More recently, Czech refugees have played in our orchestras while waiting for the chance of professional employment. Morley now has more than 4,500 students, many attending more than one class, and will expand further as soon as the money for our planned extension building has been raised. We are able, in general, to provide both an advanced and an elementary class in each subject. In this way no potential student need feel discouraged and a student can advance from being a complete beginner to achieving a very high standard some of our students have started as Morley beginners and ended as professional soloists. Subjects taught include music appreciation but also theory, ranging from fundamentals, through three stages of harmony (run, like our history of music classes, in conjunction with the extra-mural department of the University of London) to an advanced composition course whose tutor is Harrison Birtwistle, perhaps t h e outstanding younger composer in Britain; rudiments and reading but also general musicianship, including analysis and ear training; individual tuition, instrumental and vocal: and classes elementary and avanced in piano, singing, recorder playing. In the classes for voice or solo instrument students benefit from each other's problems as well as from the tutor. An amateur member of the advanced piano class recently played Liszt's "Toten-tanz" with one of the college's orchestras at a concert. This gives some idea of the standard, which (though the classes are designed for the amateur) is sufficient to attract students from the full-time music colleges and even some professionals. To attract the majority of amateurs into the performing groups, it is necessary and good to rehearse some of the established masterpieces, but we consider that part of the puroose of these groups is to widen the tastes and experience of their members, and so particularly for public concerts we include much unfamiliar music, old and new. Morley was responsible, not only for the revival of interest in Purcell. but for that in Monteverdi (with performances of "Orfeo", "Pop-pea',' and the Vespers); and gave the premieres of Seiner's "Ulysses" and Tippett's first symphony. In general we have theory and history classes that eschew formal lectures in favour of discussions and seminar work and practical ones which, as well as giving their members pleasure, improve their standards and broaden their tastes. The . demand for such classes is growing all the time. Students like the serious approach of working with well-known professional musicians. Their leisure is enriched and their education deepened in the best meaning of those words. British Information Service MRS.

Mr. Lefebvre, general director of Jeunesses Musicales of Canada and president 'of the International Federation of Jeunesses Musicales, and Gilles Bergeron, managing director of JMC were here to work out the forthcoming opening of the JMC Centre in Regina, the first in Saskatchewan. Mr. Lefebvre said the objectives of Jeunesses Musicales in every country participating, are basically the same: to foster love of music in young people and to give opportunities for young musicians. . Each national branch of JM has jts own program. A great deal of the activities of the Canadian JM is in organizing youth concerts across the country in big cities as .well as in small communities. In this country with its huge distances it is easier and cheaper to take an artist to a thousand youths than to bring them to the artist, he said. A great part of JMC activities, however, are running on an international level, thus fostering a unique brotherhood of young musicians and music enthusiasts, Mr.. Lefebvre said. This year the 25th International Festival of Jeunesses Musicales was held in Florence. Italy, from July 20 to 30. The gothic and renaissance palaces of Florence for 10 days resounded to music performed by young artists from 20 countries. The festival's colorful list of performers included a Central African ritual dance and music group, the Children of Prague Choir, the Korean Imperial Court Dancers and orchestra,' the Creole Mass Group of Argentine, the Ka-lakshestra Ballet of India, a number of outstanding Italian soloists a Flamenco guitar group of Spain, the Austrian Juenesses Musicales Choir and Soloists, the Choir of the University of Uppsala, performing ancient Swedish music, and a group of Poland performing medieval music on ancient instruments. Beside of soloists and groups, of the United States, Israel," Belgium, Bulgaria, Tunisia and Italy, France was represented among others by PRIVATE LESSONS on GUITAR, BASS AND STEEL Days and evenings. tally experienced teacher.
