3% · Northwest Arkanstr* TIMES, Wed., Oct. 16, 1974 Symphony To Open Season October 2) The University-North Arkansas Symphony Orchestra opens the fall season with its first concert here at 8 p.m. Oct. 23 in the Arkansas Union Ball room. The first concert will be under the direction of the Symphony's new conductor, Campbell Johnson, who is making his first public appearance with the orchestra. Dr. Johnson came to the University in August from Texas Tech University, where he was director of musical theater. His conducting experience has been as music director of the Cambridge Opera, the Arlington Philharmonic Society and the Cape Ann Symphony, all in Massachusetts, and he has served as assistant conductor of [lie National Ballet of Canada and associate conductor of the National Ballet (USA). OTHER FIRSTS Other firsts will be noted at this concert. Barbara Lusk, a UA student from Siloam Springs, will make her debut as a harpist when the orchestra plays Prokofiev's "Romeo and Juliet Suite No. 1, Opus 64." Also, the orchestra has been augmented by full instrumentation, another first which includes a contra bassoon played by Edwin Draughon of Fayetle- ville, a bass clarinet played by Charles Whisler of Vandalia, Mo., a guitar played by Kirk Spencer of Fayetteville, an English horn played by Martha Sutherland of Fayetteville and a piano played by Steven Clement of West Helena. To inaugurate the Music Department's new Kingston harpsichord, William Gant, pianist, will play a major solo part on the harpsichord in J. S. Bach's "Brandenburg Concerto No. 5 in D Major for Flute, Violin, Harpsichord a n d Strings." Roger Widder, Music Department chairman, will be featured as solo flutist and Richard Fuchs, who joined the UA music faculty this fall, will be heard in his first public appearance as violin soloist. HARPStCHORD The double-manuel harpsi chord was built by Richard Kingston of Dallas who modeled it after the French masterbuild- er Taskin of the 1770s. Beethoven's "Overture to Fidelio" will open the concert. Last year in a search for additional talent, the Symphony Orchestra changed Us name from the University-Fayelteville Symphony Orchestra to the University-North A r k a n s a s S y m p h o n y Orchestra. T h e Orchestra personnel comes from an extended area of several counties beyond and including the University and its surrounding community. Among its members are many junior high and high school s t r i n g teachers and orchestra directors; UA professors not in the Music Department, business and professional people and .homemakers. Dr. Johnson plunged into hard-working rehearsals after the first week of the fall semester. A preview of the first concert reveals that the orchestra responds well under his expressive baton technique. The concert offers a big bonus to music societies and music lovers in general. It is free. Following the concert, the audience is invited to a reception honoring Dr. Johnson and the soloists.

"Oh, I have no anxiety about going back," said Miss "Hutchison, 47, who is on a 10 . day ·Florida vacation. "I get t h e choices of going back there or somewhere else. But I love the country and there are many things I still plan to do there." She said her only c o n c e r n was that the U.S. embassy would assign her a bodyguard.
