A joint Band and Glee Club Concert at Carnegie Hall on March 15 will feature an address by President Pusey and the introduction of a new Harvard song.
The song is being written by Alan Jay Lerner '40, who wrote the lyrics for "My Fair Lady," and Leonard Bernstein '39. When requested to write the piece, Bernstein asked, "Do you want a chorale or a rouser?" and was told a rouser would be preferred.
The Glee Club, in addition to its appearance with the band at Carnegie Hall, will give four concerts in the extended Washington's Birthday holiday weekend. The tour will include appearances in Ridgewood, N.J., Baltimore, Md., and New York City.
The Band opened its spring program on the lighter side last night by playing the New England Golden Gloves finals in Lowell, Mass. This year's schedule requires the band to adapt to such varied places as Symphony Hall, Fenway Park and the White House.
The White House performance is still tentative. The band will travel down to Washington on May 3 for the annual meeting of the Associated Harvard Clubs. Alan S. Novins '59, assistant band manager, said there was a strong possibility of a concert on the White House lawn and a parade down Pennsylvania Avenue.
The fifth annual Symphony Hall concert on March 30 will open the spring vacation tour, according to Kenneth Lang '58, band manager. This year, for the first time, the band will perform for a Red Sox opening game, against the Yankees on April 18, at the invitation of Thomas Yawkey, president of the Red Sox and a former Yale baseball player.
The Golden Gloves management provides the band with free beer and hot dogs; but Lang said that he would be satisfied with "good Fenway Park seats."
