The Aspen Soloists, a violin, cello and piano
trio from Aspen, Colorado, will perform at 8
p.m. Jan. 20 in Memorial Hall. The Milwaukee
Journal said violinist Eriko Sato, pianist David
Oei and cellist William Grubb play with "vigor,
honesty, technical skill and, at times, poetry."
The Sofia Philharmonic Orchestra of Bulgaria
under the conduction of Konstantin Iliev and
Yordan Dafov will perform at 8 p.m. Feb. 28 in
Memorial Hall. The orchestra was founded in
1928 and each member is a graduate of the Bul

The Carolina Union is the most pervasive organi
zation on the UNC campus. In one way or another it
touches the life of every Carolina student whether it
be through the many concerts, free flicks and forums
it sponsors or through the services it provides like the
snack machines and places to bowl and play pinball
Programming for the Union is coordinated through
the Carolina Union Activities Board made up of 12
committees. Through the Activities Board, the Union
sponsors a number of events each year calculated to
appeal to a vast number of UNC students and faculty.
The Union also presents a number of other programs
designed to expose the UNC community
to novel art forms and issues and views.
Larry Ellis, the president of the Union,
explained the Union's philosophy in pro
gramming. "We're dealing with 20,000
students, a few thousand faculty mem
bers, and the entire town community.
With so many people, we've got to pre
sent a wide range of programs. For exam
ple, in the Film Committee a balance of
cultural films is represented by foreign
films we have had by such directors as
Fassbinder and Fellini and by black clas
sics from A Raisin In The Sun to a Sidney
Pokier festival. Yet, there have also been
popular films such as Fame and The Black
Stallion. With over 70 films each semester
we try to appeal to as many people as pos
sible. This kind of balance is an overall
goal of the Union." .

Bill Ragland said, "The Union is constantly trying to
find out what people want to see, do or experience
here on campus. The numerous campus organizations
provide a good base for us to gauge not only what
students want, but also in what areas our program
ming is deficient. We always are looking for input into
who we are missing in our efforts to provide for the
