Monday, May J 4, 1973 Woman's World Today... Symphony Offers Musical Tribute To Dr. Umbeck The final concert of the Knox-Galesburg Symphony season with William Wilsen, conductor, featured all the traits that have marked this season, innovative programming, outstanding soloist and an over-all high caliber of performance. Though extremely enjoyable, the Bartok Dance Suite was a challenging opening number,' opening The rapid changes in tempos and rhythms require utmost concentration, yet a certain spontaneity. A bit ragged at times, the number became increasingly persuasive as the orchestra "got into" the concert. The following Weber Concerto for Bassoon player was a rare treat. The performance of John Gardner, principal bassoon player in the symphony showed both beauty and great facility. The orchestra apparently enjoyed it too—at times the music almost seemed to be playing itself, a sure sign everyone is really aware of what he's doing. The last half of the program was devoted to Brahms. His Four Scriptural Songs sung by Spyros Sakkas, guest baritone, had been anticipated with pleas­ ure by everyone who had heard Mr. Sakkas previously. Dedicated Saturday night to the memory of Dr. Umbeck, the choice seemed hauntingly relevant. Mr. Sakkas' voice is a magnificent instrument, capable of a wide range of tone color. At the same time the message is presented with clarity, power and depth of intensity. With fine orchestral backing, this final portion of the concert was a moving tribute. It was a presentation worthy of both the composer and the memory of the man to whom it was dedicated. It's been a fine symphony series this year. One no longer thinks "It was a fine concert for a community this size" but simply, "It was a fine concert." We'll be looking forward to the 1973-74 season. —By Mrs. William Yaw 2L#? 3nstJL ec^ent Mrs. Jess S.
