Transcript C•O•N•S•T•R•U•C•T•I•O•N U•H G•E•T•S a new look MARLA RAMOS D The University of Houston Moores School of Music officially opened the doors to its new building Sept. 23, despite drizzle that had been lingering all day. "Tonight is the historical beginning of the Moores School of Music," David Tomatz, director of the school, said during the opening ceremony of "The Six Evenings of Note." A room full of well-to-do Houstonians, dressed in beautiful black dresses and distinguishing tuxedos, sipped champagne and mingled with acquaintances and friends as they waited for the concert to begin. Some stood alone, either waiting for a special someone to arrive or simply trying not to feel out of place. Others walked around observing the art work in the room. Several members of the orchestra walked around trying to get across the room. Fifteen minutes before showtime, the guests started filing in to the Moores Opera House and a noticeable chatter arose from guests who were conversing with friends and looking at programs while orchestra members were warming up. Suddenly, everyone in the room stood up as conductor Franz Anton Krager walked on stage and directed the orchestra in the Star Spangled Banner, during which the entire room sang along emphatically. The night began with several distinguished speakers addressing the audience. First UH System Chancellor/UH President Dr. Arthur Smith spoke of how the new building will add to Houston. "Tins facility will add to an already long list of venuses where the world's most prominent artists can share their talents with Houstonians, and where our student and faculty artists and musicians can showcase their genius before the world. " Mayor Bob Lanier also addressed the guests to make note of how willing honorees John and Rebecca Moores are to donate money to UH. "John's idea of a fund raiser is to write a check. It saves a lot of meetings," Lanier said. The Moores donated $18.5 million to the construction of the Moores School of Music Building. After you've gone out in the business world and made a little bit of money, you're suppposed to give something back," Moores was quoted as saying in the program distributed on opening night. The UH alumnus added, "I could not be happier with the way the campus is shaping up." Those in attendance were also excited about the future of the school, "I think the Moores school is a gem for the University of HOuston. It can give the UH a natinoal reputation," said Mitchel Glassman, an attendee, during the reception. The night's main attraction was Marilyn Horne, a mezzo0soprano and three-time Grammy Award winner. She had been honored by Italy with the Premio Do'oro award as the greatest female singer in the world. Horne's extraordinary voice carried beautifully thorugout the room as she sang with the accompaniment of the orchestra. The six-day grand opening celebration also included piano and jazz performances, along with several other musical nights. September
