IHII. HIM PHILLIPS It is my wish that the members of the " Class of ' 69 " will, throughout your careers, represent the finest musicianship, citizenship, and artistic in- tegrity and that you will flourish in your art and always be willing to share your talent and know- ledge. I have enjoyed my contacts and dialogues with you as students and will always welcome the opportunity to greet and talk with you as pro- fessional performers and educators. Good luck and Godspeed. Harvey Phillips 10

TO THE GRADUATING CLASS OF 1969: In the years to come, when you have left the Conservatory, I am sure you will always remember that when you were students here you were partici- pants in the Centennial celebration of our school. I hope you will remember other things as well, that you were here in the beginning of the New England Conservatory ' s second century, when all of us made a new commitment to all that is fine and inspiring in music, a new commitment to the development of musical performers, composers, and music educators of the highest order. I trust that you will remember those years as exciting and stimulating and, in retrospect, the rewarding beginnings of your " commencement " in profes- sional life. It is doubtful that in these times of turbulent change every decision made in the administrative and faculty offices met with your un- equivocal approval. But I would hope that the greater part of your ex- periences at 290 Huntington Avenue gave you the inspiration, knowledge and maturity that you will need once you have left the relative security of these halls. I know that you will not easily forget that you were students here when the lives of two of our great Americans were cruelly and sense- lessly destroyed. But I beg you to remember too that in those dark days we also dedicated ourselves anew to do, through music and music education, all that we are intellectually, financially, spiritually and physically capable of to restore some of the accumulated debt owed our brothers of all colors. Please know that my deep personal thanks go with you for the support you have given me as we have worked and learned together. I will follow your lives and careers always. Gunther Schuller

To the Class of 1969: Let me add my salutations to the long list that greets you upon your graduation from the New England Conservatory of Music, and at the same time my gratitude. The relationship between ad- ministration and faculty on the one hand, and students on the other, is, in fact, never in one direction only. As a result, the many and varied projects and events that enrich the Conservatory ' s year are such that all involved in their realization and production grow proportionately in ex- perience and depth. If we can be proud of what the Conservatory has given you, I am equally cer- tain that you can be proud, as we are of what you have given to the Conservatory and its musical life. The future of music and that of the New England Conservatory, the theme of this year ' s NEUME, in my opinion, bears this same relation- ship of mutual cooperation and endeavor, so that our combined energies can be permanently linked for our common goal: the art of music, in the largest sense that art conveys, and the practice of it without ever neglecting its smallest detail. This is more than a creed; it is in our blood, thus our dedication. I salute my colleagues of the class of 1969 and wish you well in whatever you may do, wherever you may be, with the hope that your dedication to music may never falter. Donald Harris 11
