252, ALL-TIME RECORD, PASS GLEE CLUB TESTS

"MISSA SOLEMNIS" WILL BE SUNG AND RECORDED

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Out of 272 vocalists who tried out for the Glee Club this autumn, an all-time high of 252 men succeeded in passing with a grade of 70 or higher, it was announced yesterday.

G. Wallace Woodworth '24, Director of the Glee Club pointed out that where as a grade of 76 or higher in the trials, which used to insure a place in most of the small concerts, was achieved by less than 100 men last year, there are now 131 on the exclusive list.

On Friday and Saturday, December 2 and 3, the Glee Club will sing Beethoven's "Missa Solemnis" with the Boston Symphony Orchestra conducted by Koussevitzky. This is a repetition of last year's concert which was unsuccessfully recorded; the recording will again be attempted this year.

Other concerts scheduled for early spring include one with the Boston Symphony Orchestra, with Mile. Nadia Boulanger directing on March 6; the Glee Club will sing Stravinsky's "Oedipus Rex," conducted by Stravinsky himself, with the Boston Symphony Orchestra on March 24 and 25.
