evening of music from a variety of
American traditions. Folk songs
that reflect 19th-century life in the
Southriver songs and African-
American spirituals and music
from the settling of the West will be
performed by the 85-voice Concert
Choir, consisting of students from
CMC, HMC, Scripps, and Pitzer,
under the direction of Michael
Lamkin.

Songs chosen for this evening's
performance are composed and
arranged by Aaron Copland,
William Grant Still, William
Dawson, Stephen Foster, Roger
Wagner, and Jean Berger.

Director of the music program of
the four colleges since 1977, Dr.
Lamkin is also associate conductor
of the Classical Music Seminar-Festival held annually in Eisenstadt,
Austria, during August. Special

music faculty. Pianist Paul Bishop
of the joint music staff accompanies
the singers.
