Pay and Play
There is a group of students on campus known
as night students. They are so-called because
they attend night classes at this institution.
These night students, for the most part, work
during the day. They pay the activity fees as
do all students, but because of their jobs are
often unable to attend the activities for which
these fees are used.
The Union Program Board has alleviated this
situation some this year for two of the lectures--
Barry Goldwater and Mark Twain Tonight--
are scheduled for night performances, and both
We would like to see more activities at times
available to these students whose participation
should then hopefully increase.
The Union has also taken an important step
in giving the night students full use of the
University facilities by keeping the Union open
later into the evening. This is progress. . .

Recently the University was for
tunate enough to have a famous con
cert pianist and teacher join its
staff. Raul Spivak, internationally
acclaimed virtuoso, has assumed
duties this fall as UNC-C’s first
Musician in Residence.
A native of Buenos Aires, Ar
gentine, Mr. Spivak might easily
be a specialist in the Spanish and
Latin American classics; but his
repertoire has gained its variety
through study in Europe and the
united States with teachers suchas
Edward Steuerman, Alexander Bo
rovsky, and Arthur Schnabel. He
has been soloist with such eminent
conductors as Ansermet, Klempe
rer, Paul Paray, and Villa-Lobos;
and he has played recitals in Car
negie Hall and Town Hall in New
York. His versatility is also evi
dent by his work in conducting
symphonic concerts, playing con
certs on television, recording for
RCA Victor, and in teaching master
classes (for which, incidentally.
qualified UNC-C students are eli
Mr. ^ivak becapie a resident
of th e United States four and one-
half years ago. Two years ago,
he accepted the position of Musi-
cian-in-Residence at North Caro
lina State University. Besides
lecturing at the University and
also presenting a regular program
on the educational channel in Ra
leigh, he presented a series of
Sunday afternoon recitals entitled
“Perspectives in Music through
the keyboard - Baroque to Con
temporary”, which consisted of,
to name a small part: Scarlotte,
Handel, Liszt, Wagner, Scriabin,
Ravel, Mussorgsky, Ginastera,
Bartok, Gershwin, and Stravinsky.
When he left North Carolina State,
Mr. Spivak was made an honorary
life-time member in both the band
and the glee-club.
Raul ^ivak has already stated
a piano master class at the Uni
versity here at Charlotte, which
will include listeners as well as
performers; and he hopes to see
Trend At UNC-C
Is Toward Folk
By ROD SMITH
Have you noticed the twang of
a guitar in the lounge lately? Or
have you been in the Rheinland
Haus on a Friday or Saturday
night in the past few weeks? If
you have, you’ve probably noticed
that, due to a few talented foB-
singers on campus, the trend at
UNC-C has turned towards a dif
ferent ge.nre. Soul is out. . . folk
Jerry Vincent’s renditions of
DR-AFT DODGER and the ever-
popular French - Canadian SHORT
GRASS can move a devotee from
cheerful elation to melancholy in
trospection in a matter of
moments. Jerry’s performances at
the Rheinland Haus and Festival
in the Park have made him a topic
of conversation and most everyone
is eagerly anticipating his per
formance during B.W.O.C.
Another talented “musician in
residence” who has blossomed
into a local favorite is Ted Bis-
choff who is presentiy en^ged at
the Rheiniand Haus. Ted sings with
a heavy accent and has a wide
coilection of “novelty” songs.
One things that has been miss
ing from this campus for the past
severai years is the spontaneous
sit-down, sing-in sort of activity.
There need not be a protest, or a
specific motivation behind it, and
until there are more guitar -
ed jeans, and sore throats on cam
pus, we can’t gain true renais
sance in the arts.
Dean Prevette, Jimmy Stafford,
Danny Phillips and (it has been
rumorecO Mr. Peterson of the ad
ministration piay a mean guitar.
And there are others. Bring those
instruments and let’s have some
a UNC-C orchestra begun soon.
(Anyone interested can of course
contact the music department.)
What is especially interesting
however, is a series of informal
concerts to be given on campus
in addition to the formal concerts.
During these classical “ses
sions”, Mr. Spivak will make
comments and talke with the stu
dents to enlarge their appreciation
and understnading of the music.
“Students who really like rock
’n roll and jazz would be delighted
to discover baroque music” says
Mr. Sipivak, because of the simi
larity between the two styles. So
much rock ’n roll and jazz comes
from baroque music that peopie
will maturally enjoy it.”
Anybody who comes to a con
cert by Raul %>ivak should be very
pleasantly surprised, just by
seeing a performer of his caliber
Spearheaded by Mr. Spivak, the
Music Department is making every
effort to form an orchestra of
University students, supplemented
faculty and community musicians.
Auditions are being held in Room
B-213. Once formed, the group
will meet once a week at a time
and place to be arranged. No aca
demic credit will be givenforthis,
but, a great deal of credit will
belong to each member of such a
group for bringing to the campus
the concerts of fine music such a
group can bring.
The French Club will have its
first meeting on Wednesday, Sept
ember 27, at 11:30 a. m. in L203.
Dr. Macy, who spent the summer
in France, will give a short talk
on his trip. Everyone interested
is invited to attend.
All students that bought the Stu
dents Accident and Sickness Insur
ance Plan, please pick your I.D.
cards up in Health Service.
