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

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

Crescendo — di minuendo— accelerando— allegro- forte— piano— exposition— recapitulation: entering the Conservatory building an observer might hear a group of voices surmounting the difficulties of Brahms Requiem, instrumentalists urged on by the conductor as they prepare a Schumann Symphony, a pianist in lonely concentration as he prepares the technical and intellectual demands of a Beethoven sonata, an organist providing clarity of lines in a Bach Fugue, a chamber group struggling with the complexities of a Bartok quartet, a sing er tracing the florid lines of an aria, the staccato strokes of a percussionist— all this and much more is the life of the New England Conservatory. Each individual has a talent to be nurtured, honed and perfected to express to the world that which was conceived by the composer, and at the same time satisfying a need of the individual to give something of himself. Music is a discipline that demands concentration, intelli- gence, and heart. We have pride and confidence in our young people for the contribution they shall make to the future as educators and performers. I am pleased to have had a small part in their prepara- tion. My best wishes for the future— con amore. 12
