New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - February 19, 1995, New Braunfels, Texas Sunday Feb HeraldZeitung 5A Tonights concert is a must see Dear Editor Concerning the upcoming Mid Texas Symphony MTS Concert in New Braunfels Civic Center at 4 on Sunday Feb 19 let me say that although I am a former MTS Board Member and after making my decision I obtained the approval of two appropriate current board per sonnel no one requested that I write this The main thing I want to say about this concert is that having participat ed in the MTS Chorus rehearsals weekly since Jan 3 and also having repeatedly listened to a recorded per formance of the subject of those rehearsals English composer John Rutters have convinced me that being present at this particu lar concert is a MUST for ALL the people in Comal Guadalupe and Hays Counties whom this Symphony seeks to serve DONT MISS IT This time the musicians will be under the direction of Guest Conduc tor Franz Anton Krager whose pre vious guest appearance with our Symphony proved to be very dynam ic and much appreciated by audience and players alike The program will include Beethovens Leonore Over ture No 3 and Mendelssohns Ital ian Symphony as well as the Rutter work But as I see it Rutters composed in 1976 and 1985 and first performed in Dallas in 1985 offers unique peak experi ence opportunities to an especially v wide variety of listeners Despite being based like the Mozart i Requiem presented by our sym phony 4 years ago at a Seguin con cert on the standard old Latin Mass for the Dead form the Rutter I Requiem alternates between Latin I and English texts the program will J translate the Latin verses and pro jects mostly a stirring assuring and melodic message about the life of all human beings I In what seems to be Rutters usual I style he skill fully and elegantly com bines the best of the old with the best i of the new while also providing sounds and phrases with great popu lar appeal I The work begins with a depiction of chaos and ends in perpetual light 1 having alternated between very diffi cult but arresting passages and warm ly melodic ones and having included I a very beautiful setting of the 23rd Psalm The music has a mostly translucent sound that is expected to carry particularly well from the singers to the audience under the conditions of the Civic Center acoustics Moreover the Rutter work is being prepared by Symphony Chorus Director Daniel Long who has previ ously conducted it in Kerrville and with his San Antoniobased Texas Bach Choir It is also Daniel who brought to the MTS Chorus and its Jackson Auditorium audience a set ting of the Twelve Days of Christ mas last Dec 11 which is still being talked about by those who were there I expect those who attend the Feb 19 concert to leave hearing inside their heads the music echoes that have been occurring inside mine for the last few weeks DONT MISS IT Yours very truly John R Malcolm New Braunfels Taxpayers need some answers Dear Editor It was reported in January on a major newscast that over million was spent on those wolves that were released in Yellowstone National Park Why should taxpayers pay so much for destructive animals Who received this money Also the Government is now allowing a MINIMUM of Cubans to legally enter this country every year this plus go on welfare or will they immedi ately have good paying jobs and pay taxes NOT receive Earned I would urge every taxpayer to contact their senators and representa tives and ask these and other ques tions Hopefully they will check into these matters and give the taxpayers some answers In the meantime have out your tax forms Sincerely Anna Smith Austin Unbiased by whos def inition Dear Citizens Over the years according to my experience the League of Women Voters publicly presents itself as an unbiased educational organization Its announced purpose is to study issues and candidates qualifications and then provide forums pub lish voter guides to educate the pub lic I believe the organization has the tax status of an educational organiza tion rather than that of a political organization While I am not a member of the organization 1 have attended several of their forums and consulted their voter guides in the past I always had the distinct impression that their information was far from unbiased and repeatedly presented the liberal side of an issue or the liberal candi date in the more favorable light However trying to be fair myself I excused this impression as being caused by my own decided bias toward the more conservative point of view Anyone that knows me knows I never try to present myself as unbi ased I hold strongly to definite con HOW MUCH SHOULD YOU PAY FOR VINYL SUING TRIM Many Texas homeowners have become discouraged because

influenced accordingly Recently I learned that the League of Women Voters will have as their keynote speaker for their State Con vention in Austin the former Sur geon General Dr Joycelyn Elders Dr Elders views were so radically liberal that President Clinton felt it was necessary to ask her to resign from the position to which he himself had appointed her tn my opinion only a group with similar liberal val ues would deliberately choose such an extremely liberal keynote speaker for their convention Also on the program was a discus sion on how the influence of the radical religious right was
