*Dream 'M usic to
By EE JEUNE GRIFFITH
Mendelssohn's music for ‘‘A
-Midsumfner Night’s Dream” will
Jee played in its entirity my the
^University symphony orchestra
for the April 24 production of
Shakespeare's play. Dr. E. A. Cyk
- ler, associate professor of music
ology, will direct the orchestra.
The use of the entire musical
^eore with the production is sel
■om found in the United States,
R>r. Cykler said. In Germany the
Rlrama with the music was very
I popular, however. Dr. Cykler saw
L the full production in a German
* music hall in Prague in 1928.
| Dr. Cykler, who came to this
f University in September, taught
pat Occidental college in Los An
geles for three years, before which
_pe was associated with the City
College of Los Angeles for 15
In addition to the 65-piece or
I chestra, over 30 voices will bo
used in the choral numbers, which
include a lullaby for Titania and
a chorus for the wedding party.
The overture introduces the
play, and the remainder of the
music accompanies the action and
words or alternates in a sort of
dialogue with the drama. Several
of these parts have been used ex
tensively on the concert platform,
particularly the famous Scherzo,
the Intermezzo, the Nocturne, and
the Wedding March.
Mendelssohn did not conceive
all the music for the “Dream" at
one time. In 1826 at the age of
17, he thought of writing a con
cert overture on the theme of the
“Dream.” In a few weeks he had
compleSed the overture. It was
not intended to be a companion
piece to the drama.
The term overture was con
sidered at that time to be what
w'as later called a symphonic
poem. The music was to portray j
the spirit of the play, and his suc
cess in doing this was recognized
from the first.
In 1842, after Mendellssohn had
been appointed general music di
rector of the Cathedral Choir by
Frederick William IV of Prussia,
the composer was commissioned
to write the dramatic music for
a number of plays, including the
“Dream.” He finished the score in
1843, and the work was first pre
sented under the composer’s ba
ton on October 18, 1843 at the
New Palace at Potsdam as part
of a dramatic festival given dur
ing the celebration of the one
thousandth year of the empire.
The music was instantly popu
lar, more so than the play. Many
Germans suspected at that time
that Shakespeare had translated
the play from some German work

Variety of Jobs
Job openings, many of them with
new concerns in Portland, were
found by Karl W. Onthank, dean
of personnel administration, while
in Portland Monday and Tuesday.
Onthank stated that with some of
the large new concerns, some jobs
carry the possibility of foreign
work after some domestic experi
Most jobs are sales work, the
dean said, but there are some other
jobs. He once again urged that all
those who will be in need of place
ment register at room 6, Freindly
hall now, as a thinning of oppor
tunities is already noticeable in
some areas, and will probably be
come more pronounced when the
large June graduating classes start
looking for jobs.
Two summer jobs at a top Ore
gon resort were announced by On
thank. A girl is wanted who can
sell ready-to-wear, and a musician
who can play folk-dances. Those
interested in these jobs are asked
to see Mrs. Parsons at the student
employment service in the YMCA
hut, Onthank said.
