Orchestra to Take Part in Shakespearian Tercentenary Celebration

The Pierian Sodality Orchestra will play the festival music and march at the Shakespearian Tercentenary Anniversary of the publishing of the First Folio in 1623, which will be commemorated by a ball and festival in the Copley Plaza this evening. The festivity is to be held under the auspices of the Frances Jewett Repertory Theatre Club for the benefit of the Repertory Theatre of Boston.

Modern dancing will open the program at 9.30 o'clock, after which the Pierian Sodality Orchestra under the direction of Walter Piston '24, will play festival music. In the presentations of excerpts from Shakespearian plays, including scenes from "The Merchant of Venice" and "As You Like It", many University and Radcliffe Students will participate.
