Most parents spend a great deal
of time with their boys and girls
teaching them some basic facts about
living. Among them are cleanliness,
neatness of dress, proper hair cuts,
good posture and all of the other
things that young men and young wo
men ' cultivate and practice.
Sometimes it is a tough job,
these parents have. Especially when
the younsters see hippies, way out
ers, flower souls or what have you
So when a group of admittedly
talented musicians show up for a
program of truly good music in one
of the high schoals of our county
looking like fugitives from the
riots of Chicago, one wonders whe
ther all the early training is worth
The North Carolina School for
the Arts sent its orchestra to For-
bush High School last week.
Musically it was a treat. Sar
torially, it was a washout.
According to youngsters, and
parents, the musicians showed up
with long, uncut hair, scraggly
beards, sloppy dress.
We are constantly hearing about
the tremendous musical programs and
other activities sponsored by the

This series is made possibly by
a grant to the School of the Arts
from the Rockefeller Foundation.
The purpose of the grant is to pro
vide a series of professional quali
ty programs, particularly by the
chamber orchestra, to communities in«
the Southeastern United States.
Within the plan there is room for
considerable flexibility to meet the
needs of individual communities.
For instance, children's concerts
and workshops by members of the per-j
forming groups are offered in addi
tion to the scheduled performances.
Because the grant underwrites
part of the expense of the musical
portion of this series, the cost of
presentations to local sponsors is
minimal (approximately $4,500 the
first year for the entire series.)
