Concert Concludes Season The Knox-Galesburg Symphony Orchestra, under the baton of William Wilsen, will present the final concert of the current season Saturday at 8 p.m. in Harbach Theatre. The program will open with the "Dance Suite" of Bela Bartok. The Concerto for Bassoon and Orchestra by Carl Maria von Weber will follow. Following intermission, two works by Johannes Brahms will be performed. "Academic Festival Overture" will • open the second half of the program. The main work of the < evening, Brahms' "Four Scriptural Songs for Voice and Orchestra," will conclude the , program. . "Dance Suite" was com* posed by Bartok to commemorate the 1 50th anniversary of the merger of the cities of Buda and Pest. The tunes of : the five dances which com- ; prise the work are not actual folk' songs, but have their origins in Arabian and Rumanian folk music as well as in the predominant Hungarian , folk music of Bartok's native land. Von Weber's Bassoon Concerto will feature John Gardner as soloist. Mr. Gardner, #'ho was born and raised in Ihe Galesburg area, has been fhe symphony's principal bassoonist since 1969. A graduate of the University of Iowa, where he majored in music, Mr. Gardner is an Associate Instructor at Knox College, where he teaches instrumental music. He is also a member of the Monmouth College Faculty Trio, which, in addition to regular concerts, performs free of charge in the schools of Monmouth and the surrounding area. The trio has also appeared on WOC-TV. In addition to his musical activities, Mr. Gardner farms in this area in partnership with his father. Von Weber's Bassoon Concerto is cast in the usual three-movement form. Th'e first movement is based on a march-like theme. This is followed by a short, lyrical slow movement. The finale is a lighthearted rondo of great verve and brilliance. Following intermission, the audience will hear Brahms' rollicking "Academic Festival O v e r t u r e." Not university trained himself, Brahms had been awarded an honorary doctor's degree by the University of Breslau. This work was composed in gratitude for that honor and includes snatches of many student songs. The major work of the evening, "Four Scriptural Songs for" Voice and Orchestra" will be performed with guest soloist Spyros Sakkas. Mr. Sak- kas has appeared before with the Knox-Galesburg Symphony Orchestra. The work Mr. Sakkas will perform with the orchestra was written by Brahms when he learned of the illness and impending death of his good friend, Clara Schumann. The widow of composer Robert Schumann, she had provided inspiration and encouragement for Brahms through many years of his career. The tribute to her goes further to encompass Brahms' own philosophy of life and death in the four Biblical excerpts (three from Ecclesiastes and one from First Corinthians) on v/hich the work is based and from Which the text is taken. The work is regarded by some as being Brahms' last musical testament, inasmuch as he died within a year of its composition. This concert will close the orchestra's 21st season of subscription concerts. Individual tickets may be purchased at the Center for the Fine Arts, Knox College, just before the concert begins in Harbach Theatre, at 8 p.m. Saturday evening. stein being exhibited May 3- June 5 at the Civic Art Center.

Funds for the community art center program were allocated by the council at its quarterly meeting April 26 in Springfield. At that meeting, the council also voted monies for programs of grants to community theaters and regional and community dance companies.

Main St. — Downtown Galesburg eaiure ~Jlt ~Jlrt (Center The Galesburg Civic Art Center current show features "New Graphics by Jasper Johns, Ellsworth Kelly, Roy Lichtenstein, and Robert Motherwell." The exhibit was procured from Graphic Art Services of Waverly, Iowa, and is being sponsored by Intra State Telephone. The exhibit, which will-continue until June 1, consists of 23 _ lithographs, screen prints, and embossings. With the exception of "Crying Girl," a Lichtenstein Pop Art print from 1963, all have been completed in the past three years. Johns, Kelly, Lichtenstein, and Motherwell are among the most influential and dominant figures in the art world. The Art Institute of Chicago, the Metropolitan Museum of Modern Art, and numerous art museums all over the world have examples of their work in permanent collections. While all have painted, at this point, they have turned their attention to printmaking. The process, which enable an artist to make copy after copy of the same composition once a print­ ing plate has been made, frees the painter who can only paint one canvas at a time. Consequently, art work, so much in demand, is more available and less exclusive if made with the printing process. The public is invited to stop in at the Civic Art Center, 114 E. Main to see "New Graphics." Gallery hours are 11:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Saturday.
