The symphony season will get under way Monday with the return from Europe of the famed conductor of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, Serge Koussevitzky. First rehearsal of the Orchestra in symphony hall will be October 3rd. The following Friday afternoon Dr. Koussevitzky will open his fifteenth year of providing Boston and vicinity with great music.
Symphony Hall plans to give a series of twenty-four Friday afternoon and Saturday evening concerts, together with a shorter series of six Monday evening and Tuesday afternoon concerts. Already subscribers for the four series outnumber those of last year. Student applicants from Harvard and other schools and colleges in Greater Boston represent almost every American state and possession, with Texas occupying the lead.
