  BADGER MUSIC LOVERS have been getting their
fill on the University campus. It's the 1947 Spring
Music Festival.
  The San Francisco Symphony led off with two con-
certs on Sunday, Apr. 27. This was the closing event
of a double-header Union Concert schedule which has
seen more outstanding musical talent on the Union stage
this year than ever before.
  Tuesday, Apr. 29, came a concert by the UW Concert
Band, featuring a medley of University hymns.
  The University Women's Chorus performed on
Wednesday night, April 30, and the University Sym-
phony Orchestra on Thursday.
  Friday brought the annual Tournament of Song, in
which choral groups representing the organized men's
and women's houses on campus compete for honors in
the Union Theater. The same night the Madison p~ublic
school elementary and junior high school music festival
was held in the Stock Pavilion.
  Wisconsin s distinctive Pro Arte Quartet played to a
large audience in Music Hall on Saturday night. The
quartet is a unique group of artists-in-residence.
  Sunday, May 4, brought the Festival to a close with
a rendition of Beethoven's Missa Solemnis in the Stock
Pavilion by the Madison Civic Music Association Chorus
and Orchestra and the combined University choruses,
and the Tudor Singers' supper musicale in Tripp Com-
mons of the Memorial Union.
