Philharmonic Orchestra of Indianapolis concert: Youthful, Venerable, Diverse, and Unique Perspectives!
The all volunteer orchestra, the Philharmonic Orchestra of Indianapolis presents the last classical concert of the 2016-2017 season.
We bring the subscription season to a close every year, with a bit of a big finish. What is wonderful about the nature of this kind of concert is that the first half of the concert celebrates winners of the Indiana Music Educators yearly Composition Competition. Working with these young people as they test their wings at making music come to life, the Phil not only rehearses the music, but invites the young composer's insights to hear about the music's genesis and structural inspirations. After intermission, the singular music of composer Ottorino Respighi, intones the great beauty and historic majesty of "The Pines of Rome."
