Musicians Present Beethoven in Dishpan Symphony

CLASSIC musicians yielded to the influence of Tin Pan Alley in a novel concert recently staged by the Chicago Symphony Orchestra to celebrate the raising of a deficit fund.

Under the direction of Dr. Frederick Stock, leader of the orchestra, all of the members of the percussion section were equipped with pots, pans and other miscellaneous kitchen utensils in preparation for the playing of Beethoven’s Symphony No. 8. Much time was expended in testing the various makeshift instruments to secure the proper tone quality during rehearsal periods.
