Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 22, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Youth Orchestra-Annual Miracle Wednesday, July M, 1970 THE LFTHBRIDGE HERALD 7 TORONTO (CP) The Na- tional Youth Orclwslra, now entering its 10th year, is no longer the public novelty it once was. After all, why shouldn't the H- to 24-year-old instrumen- talists have, the talents of a professional orchestra? They work nine hours a day for 3% weeks with the constant help and advice of 15 of the best professional instrumentalist- coaches in North America, not to mention a highly qualified, widely experienced conductor. After nine years thte Mont- real critic, Gilles Potvin, calls the youth orchestra "le mira- cle the annual mira- cle. This year's conductor, 43- year-old Brian Priestman who is currently director of the Denver Symphony Orchestra, is no stranger to the annual miracle, having been in charge of it in 19C7. He is con- fident, but by no means either cynical or smug, about his re- turn assignment. The players gathered here for tho beginning of the train- ing period which culminates July 29 at the O'Keefe Cento with a public concert, the first in a 10-day national tour cons- isting of tight concerts1 in the four central provinces. Mr. Priestman described1 the youth orchestra as "Can- ada's only national music or- ganization, and the single most important element in the country's musical life and for its future." He added that lie is person- ally excited "at the prospect The Music Box: By MICHAEL BENNETT Canadian Press Staff Writer He comes on stage in dark- ness; a sex symbol in T-shirt and blue jeans. His orgiastic performances sparked decency rallies throughout the United States, left file Doors without a hall to play in and turned their al- b u m s into million-sellers within a week of their release. But that was two years ago, when Jim Morrison was syn- onymous with obscenity, rock 'n' roll was dirty music and mothers were warned to hide their daughters. It didn't matter that he had something to say; it was how he said scream- ing, whipping his audience into a violent frenzy. A Doors' concert was a total audio visual experience; a show of sound and fury. They play the same vol- canic music today, but Morri- son no longer lights the fire. In Seattle, Wash., lie was as mellow as Perry Como in front of a half-capacity audi- ence. In Vancouver, a crowd Of ranging from teenybop- pers with braces on their teeth to plastic hippies yelled at him to "get it on" when he knew he couldn't.

The group included towns people and 25 high school aw college students from nearby Reno. The horse lovers kept a hush ed-up watch for five months af- ter the illegal trap was spot ted, hoping to catch the mus- tang herders. "They finally got tired of waiting so they just snuck in there and knocked the trap said Dr. Michae Pontrelli, a University of Ne- vada at Reno professor and ex- pert on the wild horses.

Morrison's voice is a steady baritone when you cut away the screams; Kay Manzarek plays frenetic organ; Bobbie Krieger is an under-rated lead iguitarist and1 drummer John Densmore controls things be- hind the amps. REACTION IS MIXED Morrison and The Doors have a long-term contract with Elektra Records, but his interests have gone beyond the studio. He's a former film student at the University of California in Los Angeles, but his 40- iniriute color study of The Doors on tour, Feast of Friends', has received mixed critical and audience reaction. The feature-length Hiway, which Morrison produced and starred in, is Antonibni's Za- briskie Point with realism. The film plays out Morrison's Opening monologue: "In the face of reality, we are all sni- velling crybabies." He is the hitch-hiking killer, an outlaw against an oppres- sive America. On film and on stage, Morrison is committed to revolution rather than rhet- oric, but for that reason Hiway may never be picked up by a major distribution house. In person, Morrison dispels the image of the ego-tripping rock star, despite his retinue Of hangers-on and groupies. He is a polite, sensitive young man, more at ease sit- ting cross-legged on the floor with a group of writers, sculp- tors and painters than sur- rounded by drooling fans. His third volume of poems, The Lords and the New Crea- tures, was published this spring by Simon and Schuster and future film work is planned with cinema-verite director Michael McClure. Morrison's only problem is trying to live down the com- mercial hype and straight- press sensationalism that turned a singer-actor-poet into a side-show freak. of being associated with the inquiring minds of the players and the strong personalities of the faculty members, many of whom are internationally rec- ognized as leading members of their particular branches of music." "The session is the most en- riching experience I know, and damn hard work too. But I think I learned more about myself from the youth orches- tra in 1967 than I have ever learned from a professional orchestra." Thomas Monoban, Toronto Symphony principal string bass, said: "I like to think we are training professional musi- cians, and that I treat them. A few of the kids come for a fun summer, but those that do are going to be sadly disappointed. They are here to lose the sense of T and gain the sense of 'We.' They are the right age to learn the ne- cessity to make a good sound and to take orchestral respon- sibility. I am so sick of bad only from stu- dents, either. And I am im- placably determined that these kids are going to leave .this session having learned something more about the dis- ciplines and requirements of good playing." COACHES ARE BOSS He says the members of the youth orchestra "have an ad- vantage no professional sym- phony player has." "They have coaches who are like super-first-chair play- ers. That is, the coaches1 are outside the orchestra listening to their section; are objec- tive; are knowledgeably criti- cal; and are boss. "This is the place where all of us can catch the kid who is outstanding and unaware of it and teach him something about his possibilities and re- sponsibilities." Mr. Monohan has One com- plaint about the organization which is "probably the most important work of my life out- side of my own playing." He is critical of the manner in which the auditions are dony. "The auditions are done by a conductor, who is usually a hell of a good musician, but who is inevitably more im- pressed with the kid who is making a decent sound now than with the kid who may 'not be so far along but who is capable of being trained1 to make a great sound. "It's not a question of how good anybody is. It's a ques- tion of who should be doing what job." Those in charge of the youth 'orchestra are aware that the session may be too intensive. They know the session is top short and too tough. Economi- cally it can't be any different at this time. Eachi member costs about over the five-week tour session.

Austria Makes Move VIENNA (Reuters) Austria will present a memorandum in tile next few days to eveiy Eu- ropean country, Canada and the United States on the question of a European security conference, Foreign Minister Rudolf Kirchs- ehlaeger announced today. Kirchschlaeger said Austria, as a neutral country, could play a significant part in convening a security conference. He spoke at the opening of the first seminar of the Interna- tional Peace Academy, a "non- government body which aims to develop practical training and research in techniques of me- diation, conflict control and peaceful social change. A proposal for a European se- curity conference was put for- ward last year by the Warsaw pact states and renewed in Bu- dapest, Hungary, last month. In Ottawa, an external affairs department spokesman said today Canada endorsed a pro- posal at the NATO foreign min- isters conference in Rome in May calling for preliminary dis- cussions on the possibility of a European security conference. The NATO conference asked the Italian government to poll all European countries concern- ing such a meeting, the spokes- man said. There would be no Canadian comment on the Austrian.plan until full details are known, he said. Charges Not Proven VANCOUVER (CP) D; Gordon Shrum, chairman British Columbia Hydro, say charges have not been prove that the W. A. C. Bennett Dair on the Peace River is respon sile for robbing the Athabasc River delta of its annual sprin floods and threatening t h livelihoods of about 1.300 delL residents. He made the claim change from Hydro's origina plea of not publication of a report by Alberta scientists which say the absence of spring floods i due directly to the regulatio of the Peace by the Bennel Dam. "We h a v e no doubt eontro led the Dr. Shrum said in an interview. "The damage Uiat would rp suit would have to be proper] investigated. One must bear ir mind that we have had three years of low water, and it is little difficult to say this is du to the Bennett Dam, because ir 1968, we were releasing les than half the water we ar releasing now." NATIVES SUFFER The report, sent to Albert premier Harry Strom, say areas of marsh on which wild llife is dependent for food an shelter are turning into mut flats because of the lack o floods.

Dr. Slirum said that not all the flow of the Peace is con- trolled by the dam. Ifc said that the Pine and many other rivers enter the Peace between the dam and the Athabasca re- gion and added that they could still cause flooding in a nor- mal water1 year. He said the next step Is to wait for more data on what is happening to tire delta, but Al- berta scientists say Uin delta cannot wait. They recommend that tem- porary partial obstruction channels from Lake Athabasca to the Peace be started this year to raise the level of the delta lakes and more complete remedial measures ba pre- pared in 1971 and 1972.
