In the Union this evening at 7.30 o'clock a concert for Freshman will be given by the Boston Sinfonietta, composed of 16 members of the Boston Symphony Orchestra and conducted by Arthur Fiedler. This musicale was planned by the 1936 Union Committee to present first-year men with the finest musical entertainment. The Sinfonietta, founded four years age by its conductor, can play symphonic music in communities and schools where it would be inadvisable if not impossible, to transport a complete symphony orchestra.
The idea of having the Sinfonietta met with the unanimous approval of the 1936 Union Committee.
The program will be as follows: Overture to "Oberon" Weber Symphony in D Major No. 104 (London) Haydn Adagio-allegro Andante Menuetto Allegro spiritoso Interval ;Petite Suite Debussy En Bateau Cortege Menuet Ballet Andante eantabile from the Fifth Symphony Tchaikovsky "Tales from the Vienna Woods" waltzes Johann Strauss "Dance of the Hours" from the opera "La Gioconda" Ponchielli
