EDW ARBS Assistant Insider Editor The United States Navy Band will perform at State Univer- sity College at Cortland on April 19. The concert, which is sponsored by the Cortland Arts Council and the Campus Ar- tist and Lecture series, is free to the public. The band, which bails fr.om Washington, D.C., is the United States Navy's prem:iere musical representative. Directed by 'Commander Allen E. Beck, the band is recosniz- ed as \The World's Finest\ by the American Bandmasters Association. The Navy Band is staffed by some of the nation's finest musicians, who boast attendance at outstan- ding universities and schools of music. Among those will be featured performer Dale Underwood, a graduate of Homer High SChool. As Senior Chief M11sician, Underwood will solo in Claude T. Smith's \Fantasia for Alto Saxophone.\ . . . . Also ··featured on the progr:am are compostttons by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, John Phillip Sousa and Samuel A\tgustus W-atUi The b~nd has provided music: for milit,ry ceremoP,ies· and ba~ pal\~icipated in fifteen .IJresidential ln- ,aUtlUt~s.. !ta,~ :b,-.~4 _,a)$0 performs frequently at ·the White House ;and :Pentagpn.

Ringwald and Cryer are at their best. The movie follows the traditional Broadway path: hoy meet~ girl, boy loses girl and, of ~.:otuse, boy gets girl bad. But thb is better than a typical formula movie. It in- corporates good personality development, good cinematography to highlight :-.uch developments, and an excellent soundtrack with everything from Otis Day to Psychedelil.: Fur-..

Orchestra presents Spring concert The College Community Orchestra, directed by Ralph Dudgeon, associate pro- fessor of music, will be presenting its Spring concert on Tuesday, April 29, at 8:15 p.m. in the Fine Arts building of the SUNY Cortland campus. The orchestra, which features members of the community, students and col- lege faculty, will be performing works by Mozart, Dvorak and Dukas in the Ruth E. Dowd Theatre-Recital Hall. The program will begin with a piece for brass, the overture to the ballet, La Peri, by Paul Dukas, the early twentieth-centluy French composer. Although the ballet, first performed in 1911, is less well known than Dukas' most famous work, \The Sorcerer's Apprentice,\ it demonstrates some of the sonorities and rhythmical supplene~s that mark the composer's finest compositions. The program will continue with the Mozart Symphony in D, known as the \Haffner.\ WFitten in 1782 as a commission by the Salzburg mercha~t, Sigmund Haffner, the 26-yeat.old Mozart was,. as he,explained to ·his father, \up to my ey4:s in work'' on bis first great opera·, c'The Abduction Jro.m the Seraglio''- 'and seeme(l frustrated with :the task of wrJting a symphony at the same time.

The rest of the first movement is a sprightly, delicate allegro with filigree passages for the strings. The andante that follows is a charm- ing melody that contrasts the sonority of str- ings and brass. The menuetto with its con- trasting trio has a broad, almost folk-like quality to it and the quick patter of the finale, the lilting Italian semi-quavers that anticipate Rossini's overtures. After a brief intermission, the concert will conclude with one of Dvorak's most glorious works, the Symphony in G. op. 88. The next to last of Dvorak's symphonies, the final one being the best known, the '\New World\ Symphony. the G major was written and premiered in 1:890 in London when Dvorak was at the height of his creative powers. Dvorak, who was born in 1841, began his musical career lleavily under the influence of Wagner and later, Brahms. It was in the 1870's that he turned toward his native Czech origins to discover in its folk music a rich legacy that bec:ame characteristic of his finest work. The 0 major opens with a three-note figure which is used to its greatest effect in the finale. This opening allegro is a vigorous piece of music filled wi.th 'DvorJ(k's v.ivid orch~stral coloring. The tranquil~tdagio ,wbich suggests the bird-calls of the composer's native Bohemia .is followed by a soaring mel()(ly which dominates the aflegretto. The sym- phot:rY canoludes ·with a·:rn:ajestic restatement and transformation ·of ·the thr~·oote phrase which opened the wor:k. · .
