Climaxing an exceptionally successful season this year, the Harvard University Orchestra will present its annual spring concert tonight at 8:15 o'clock in Paine Hall.
As its program, the orchestra will give: the Overture to "Le Magnifique" by Gretry; Symphony No. 1 in E-flat ("Drumroll") by Haydn; Chaconne in E-minor by Buxtehude, transcribed for orchestra by Malcolm W. Holmes, conductor of the Harvard University Orchestra; "Serenata Notturna" by Mczart; Concertino for Clarinet and Orchestra by Jan La Rue '40; and Variations on "Mary Had a Little Lamb" by Edward Ballantine, associate professor of Music.
Tonight's program is of unusual interest to Harvard students in view of the fact that it will be the first performance of Jan LaRue's Concertino. LaRue graduated magna cum laude in music last June and wrote his work as a graduate student at Princeton during the winter. While he was at Harvard, he played first clarinet in the orchestra and was elected president of the Pierian Sodality in his Senior year.
