KIRKUS REVIEW

Commemorative volume of the 100th anniversary, repeating some of the information now unavailable which appeared in the 50th and 75th memorials. A summary of years of achievement, tracing the origin of the group, the first concert, the development of a permanent orchestra, this tells where it played, what its importance was and is, who the personalities have been that contributed to its growth; the conductors, music unions, budget, work at the Stadium, in radio, on records etc. A tribute to perfect teamwork between orchestra and individuals.
