One of the early numbers is from "The Black Crook", referred to as a "melodramatic mess", produced in 1866. In contrast, the final number is from "West Side Story" — a dramatic sequence in which acting, singing and dancing are com- bmed. Other musicals lending mater ial for the UR show are Carousel", "South Pacific", "Show Boat", "Pal Joey" and "Kiss Me Kate." Advance tickets sales indicate that the show will be a popular success and it was announced today that best seats are available for this Saturday night's performance. LA. Philharmonic Closes Winter Concert Season With Grand Flourish WEBER GRAND PIANOS Redlands Blvd. & New York St. Bringing the Redlands Winter Concert Association season to a dramatic close last evening in Memorial chapel at the University of Redlands, the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra with its dynamic young director, Zubin Mehta, presented a pro gram that provided continuous musical excitement. The 28-year-old Bombay-bom maestro, now completing his second season with the iios An gcles orchestra, confirmed the impression made on his appearance here last season as a baton wizard, this year adding more dramatics to his podium gestures in a nearer-Bemstein image than remembered. The most compelling work last evening was Ravel's "La Valse", its captivating rhythms and dazzling colorations empha-, sized in one of the most clectri- fymg interpretations ever heard. Mr. Mehta's well calculated e.\-: ploration into the valleys and into the hills of the exotic tonal ATTENTION BRIDES!

JUNIQN Strvina lUdlandi for Om 30 Ytan 110 East Slatt R «tfl «ndt itics lent vividness to the contrasts of (he score and it was a magnificent accomplishment. The Viennese tradition absorbed by Mr. Mehta during his years at the Vienna State Academy of Music was reflected in the grace and sensuousness of this wonderful music that seemed to pour from his fingers as he directed. Dwelling alternately on the tendemess, whimsy and wild abandon of the infectious Slavonic Dances (Op. 46) by Dvorak, Mr, Mehta here, too, led a scintillating musical excursion, bursting with fiery exhuberance in the famous final "Furiant". It was fitting that a contemporary American composer be represented on a concert at the University of Redlands where the school of music annual ly premiers new works on its Symposium of American music. Last evening, the orchestra played Ned Rorem's "Eagles", said to be based on Walt Whitman's poem, "The Dalliance of the Eagles". Described as a programmaticai piece, his first for orchestra by the Indiana bom composer, it compares well with (he output of today's young composers even in it's tendency to be overwhelming in reaching cUmaxcs. Whatever image the music may have created in the listener, the composer lets him off the hook, according to the program notes, by saying that "there are as many images for a piece of music as there are people listening". Jlozart's "Marriage of Figaro" Overture opened the program, its sparkling classicism getting an added fillip of timbres and tempi.
