Looking forward to a year of ex
citing and varied entertainment, the
concert and lectures committee an
nounces the 1970-71 series of cam
pus events.
Opening the season is a three-part
program by the husband-wife team
of Mr. and Mrs. George Luckten-
berg. This accomplished couple will
perform a piano-violin duo of the
Beethoven Sonata Cycle on October
5 in chapel, the second pro
gram being presented at 8:00 p.m.
of the same day. Program three is
scheduled for October 19, 8:00 p.m.,
Jones Auditorium.
Mrs. Lucktenberg, violinist, and
Dr. George Lucktenberg, pianist,
have earned recognition through
their artistic interpretations and
varied programs. Because of their
artistry, this husband-wife team is in
ever-growing demand for concerts,
for clinics, and for lectures.
Studying at Austria’s State
Academy of Music at Vienna, each
of the Lucktenbergs won the coveted
Artists Diploma in less than a year.
Further recognition of their abilities
took the form of a Ford Foundation-
sponsored fellowship at the Uni
versity of North Carolina, Chapel
Hill. With this fellowship the Luck
tenbergs researched neglected mas
terpieces of their special field—18th
century sonatas for violin and harpsi
chord. Training for their profes
sional backgrounds includes studies
in violin with Ivan Galamian, Max
Rostal, and Ernest Morawec; in
piano with Edward Kilenyi; and
in harpsichord with Eta Barich-
Schneider.
Besides the attraction of their
talent, the Lucktenbergs also have
the appeal of two fabulous instru
ments: a Stradivarius dated 1718
and a specially-built nine-foot mod
ern concert harpsichord.
Presently the Lucktenbergs are
teaching at Converse College, Spar
tanburg, S. C. In the summer Dr.
Lucktenberg assumes his position on
the faculty of the National Music
Camp in Interlochen, Mich. The
talented couple spends between-tour
Tryouts for Production
At iWeredlth to Be Held
Tryouts for Twelve Angry Wom
en, the major dramatic production
of Meredith Playhouse, will be held
Tuesday, October 6, at 7:00 p.m. in
202 Jones. This play, written by
Reginald Rose and adapted by Sher
man L. Sergei, won an Emmy award
for “best dramatic writing.”
Twelve Angry Women is the story
of a nineteen-year-old boy who is
charged with the fatal stabbing of his
father. The boy’s fate rests in the
hands of the twelve women jurors.
The verdict is reached after many
tense scenes, re-examination of the
testimony, re-enactment of the mur
der, and the advent of a new murder
threat.
Twelve students are needed to fill
the roles of the jurors, whose per
sonalities range from meek and hesi
tant to loud and flashy and from
sadistic to gentle. Any student de
siring a part in the production or
having interest in or enthusiasm for
the theater should come to tryouts.
Tryouts are open to all classes.

speech and dramatics at Meredith,
