MUSICIAN RECEIVED TRAINING HERE AND IN ROME

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

This evening at 8.15 o'clock the Hotel Commander Ball Room will be the scene of a concert of the original compositions of Randall Thompson '20, under the auspices of the Harvard Liberal Club.

The program includes a sonata for pianoforte played by Jesus Maria Sanroma, soloist of the Boston Symphony, and a series of five odes of Horace for mixed chorus by the University Double Quartet and the Wellesley College Choir. The Durrell Quartet will perform the string quartet, "The Wind in the Willows," and the composer at the piano will render his suite for pianoforte.

Mr. Thompson received his musical training at Harvard and under Ernest Bloch. While at Harvard he was awarded the Rome Prize and subsequently spent three years in composition at the American Academy in Rome. He is now professor of Music in Wellesley College and lecturer on Music in Harvard University.

His jazz "Poem" for pianoforte and orchestra was performed last November by the Rochester Philharmonic, while a symphonic prelude, "The Piper at the Gates of Dawn" was performed this season by the Boston Symphony Orchestra.
