Member Rolls Open % Many of Music World's Greats Brought Here on Concert Series Some of the world's greats In music and allied arts have appeared in Alton under auspices of the Alton Community Concert Association. Some of them the Alton association was able to watch climb up the ladder of international re- known after they appeared here. Others were chosen because of their fame at the'time. Among the latter group were violinist Yehudi Menunin, who was a world celebrity long before he was out of knee pants. Gregor Platlgorsky, long recognized as the greatest of the world's active concerning 'cellists,, was another to perform here at ^the height of his career. But James Melton, Eleanor Steber, Igor Gorin, the Trapp Family- all these were chosen by~the Alton association because they bore promise for the future. And all have achieved world acclaim since their appearances here. Melton Led Off Melton was the first "guest" artist to appear on the Concert Association's course in the days when it offered a combination of home talent in the form of the Madison County Symphony Orchestra and the Community Chorus's concerts, along with the professional performers. N The Trapp family also performed that season. Miss Steber appeared on the association's third series.

Miss Farrell and Svanholm, here the same season, finished that winter by making a Wagnerian recording together. Albert Spalding, the violinist who retired shortly following World War n from the concert stage to take up writing, after heading up a special United States educational agency in Italy, was among the other world-famed artists to appear here. Makes "Hit" Record So was William Primrose, even then recognized as the world's finest viola player. A recording of Berlioz' "Harold. In Italy" with a British orchestra under Sir Thomas Beecham this year was acclaimed the top-selling disk in the serious music classification. Alec Templeton drew to the high school auditorium a near capacity audience several years ago, despite the fact that ice lay thick on the ground.
