Tonu Kalam, new associate professor
Kalam, a graduate of Harvard,
University who received his master's
degree from the University of Cali
fornia at Berkeley, has been involved
in music since his childhood. His
father played the violin and con
ducted, and his mother, a pianist, was
his first piano teacher. "I got a lot
of exposure at an early age to live
music to rehearsals, to chamber
imisic, concerts, radio, records,"
Kalam said. "It was quite an immer
sion that one couldn't escape, and I
never thought twice about it. It was
crowded," he said. "I was shocked for
three or four days. I couldn't do

"It was unfortunate because we

Peace Corps, and he had a good
relationship with major civil rights
leaders, in particular Martin Luther
King," Stone said.

In addition to conducting the UNC
Symphony, Kalam also teaches
conducting classes and coaches a
chamber group, conducts the Long

and the New England Chamber
Orchestra in Boston and serves as
executive director of the renowned
Kneisel Hall chamber music school
and festival in Blue Hill, Maine.
He said he prefers the academic
setting to the professional one
because of the politicking in the
professional world. "I look around
and see professionals at various levels,
and I see a lot of nonsense ... a lot
of extra-musical stuff that really is
disturbing," he said. "I see problems
with unions and subscribers and
trustees and players' committees and
so many things that impede the
music-making that you don't have in
a university setting."

Anticipating turkey, cranberry
sauce, sweet potato pie and
vacation from school are all
reasons for students to enjoy
Thanksgiving. But many students
and campus officials say Thanksgiv
ing means something more special.
"We use Thanksgiving as a day to
get together with special friends and
enjoy each other's company,' says
Dean Richard Cole of the School of
Journalism. He says he will have 14
people visiting him over the holiday.
"Some of them dont have fami
lies of their own, others cannnot be
with their families for various rea
sons," Cole says "We all get together
to have fun, food and fellowship."
Zenobia Hatcher-Wilson, the
director of Campus Y, says Thanks
giving is a time of renewal.
"I really feel an obligation to give
back something to others," Hatcher
Wilson says. "It is a time for us to

gradually pull up the level. I think
it is all up from here."
Kalam stresses interaction between
players and music in his conducting.
Players "have to use their ears to listen
to other sections and other players.
It's just not good enough to follow
the baton," he said.
In addition, Kalam said he does
not believe in conducting to record
ings for practice because that is
following, not leading. "There's
already another person between you
and the score, and you're learning
somebody else's idea of the piece
rather than forming your own based
on your study of the score, your
knowledge of the style of the period,
the composer, the background
there's no substitute for that."
The UNC Symphony Orchestra
will perform Copland's "An Outdoor
Overture," Brahms' "Fourth Sym
phony" and Faure's "Pelleas and
Melisande" on Tuesday, Nov. 22, at
8 p.m. in Hill Hall Auditorium. The
event will be free of charge and open

out there doing without, we should
evaluate our own position and see if
there is any way we can help

we should really honestly and earn

While many people are concerned
about others, some people are just
happy to be around their own fami

philosophy department, says the
political science major from Gasto

Indians at UNC, 66 of which are
Mansfield said members of the
group were concerned about these
low numbers for several reasons,
one being the high dropout rate for
American Indians. The University
has no way of knowing how many
of those 66 undergraduates will
remain in school here, he said.
The main reason for the high dro
pout rate is because many Indians
are not adapting to the campus,
"We are constantly overlooked,"
he said. "Most American Indians
come from all-Indian communities,
and they face a big culture shock
without many people willing to help
