The steps of Widener Library will form the stage at 7:15 p.m. tomorrow for the Harvard Summer Band's only outdoor concert of the season.
The music will be in a popular vein, ranging from Prokofieff's "Opus 99" to selections from Rodgers and Hammerstein's "Carousel" and "South Pacific." "We have made a special effort," Band director Bernard A. Wiseblatt '57 remarked, "to prepare a program suited in content to the outdoor summer setting, and suited in length to permit other evening activities following the concert."
The Band will hold a contest next week to find a piano soloist to perform Gershwin's "Rhapsody in Blue" at the group's final performance, Aug. 10. Tryouts will be held at 7 p.m. July 26 in the Upper Common Room of the Union.
All contestants must perform before a three man musical board, including Band director Wiseblatt. A series of intensive coordinating rehearsals will follow the selection of a winner, in order to integrate the solo piano with the band accompaniment.
