The Daily Tar Heel Tuesday, November 22, 19887 Sharing thoughts on giving thanks Group calls for change in American Indian, University relations By MYRNA MILLER Staff Writer American Indian students have little incentive to attend UNC because most of the minority programs on campus are directed toward blacks, according to Kalam to take conductor's baton at UNC symphony season debut By CARA BONNETT St3ff Writer ".the UNC Symphony Orchestra not only opens a new season of music but also welcomes a new conductor wjth its first performance this winter on Tuesday night. I, The 8 p.m. concert in Hill Hall will feature Copland's "An Outdoor Overture," Brahms' "Fourth Sym phony" and Faure's "Pelleas and Melisande." It will be the orchestra's first performance under the direction of Tonu Kalam, new associate professor of music. 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 Kennedy crowded," he said. "I was shocked for three or four days. I couldn't do anything." Afro-American studies associate professor Sonja Stone was a graduate student at Atlanta University. "It was unfortunate because we cpnsidered him a progressive presi dent. He made a commitment to eradicate poverty. He started the 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 view Symphony Orchestra in Texas 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." He seekg Jp instill a renewed sense of commitment and enthusiasm in the orchestra at UNC. "I know there is a lot of work to be done here," he said. "That is my challenge here, to "He was so young and vital, he just seemed so full of life," said Lensing, now the assistant chairman of UNC's English department.

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 American Indian students are the main goals of the Carolina Indian Circle, which has about 25 active members. "I don't feel that the University is doing a reasonable job for other minorities," said Mansfield, a junior 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 to the public. from page 1 how someone could manage to pull this off," he said. Langenderfer said: "When Kennedy was around, things were beginning to turn around, and they were exciting. The air was vibrating with excitement. We haven't had anyone like that since then." from page 1 that money was in the endowment fund." BOT members also seemed to be unaware of the delegation of respon sibility. When asked about the transfer of money from the endow ment fund, Endowment Board and BOT member Bobo Tanner said, "Those wheels turn a little slow, and besides, the Endowment Board only meets three or four times a year."

Rule and Judiciary Committee Chairman Gene Davis, a junior speech political communications major from Raleigh, says he became interested in researching the true origins of Thanksgiving last year. "I became interested in what Thanks giving really was a harvest for the Pilgrims after a long period of suffering. "Since there are a lot of people out there doing without, we should evaluate our own position and see if there is any way we can help improve the situation of our fellow human beings," Davis said. "Then we should really honestly and earn estly give thanks for what we have." While many people are concerned about others, some people are just happy to be around their own fami lies. Jay Rosenberg, chairman of the philosophy department, says the political science major from Gasto nia. "There are only 128 American Indians at UNC, 66 of which are undergraduates." 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, Mansfield said. "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 them adapt." The group also is trying to per suade the University to hire an American Indian faculty member, The DTH Campus Calendar is a daily listing of University-related activities sponsored by academic departments, student services and student organizations officially recognized by the Division of Student Affairs.
