DePauw University Orchestra (November 2015 Concert)
The great Germanic tone poem "Death and Transfiguration," by Richard Strauss, and  American composer Michael Torke's joyful "Javelin,"  written for the 1996 Atlanta Olympics, are the featured works on this orchestral program, which considers the ArtFest 2015 theme "Art and Transformation." While Torke's piece shows how minimal musical gesture unfolds from the tiniest seed to reveal a magnificent musical theme, Strauss's music tells an emotion-filled story of a man's life through its transfiguration to a soul in the afterlife.

The DePauw University Orchestra maintains an active schedule. An all-undergraduate organization, the orchestra focuses on performing and reading music of the standard repertoire, creating a four-year overview that is a cross-section of music including most style periods, regional influences and genres. In 1991, the DePauw University Orchestra won an ASCAP Award for "Adventuresome Programming of Contemporary Music." It was featured in May and June of 1996 on USAirways in-flight program Ovation, performing works of Stravinsky, Mussorgsky and Grieg.

The orchestra not only performs its own concerts (often broadcast live on WGRE-FM and the Internet), it plays for DePauw Opera productions, accompanies student concerto winners, and performs with the University's choirs, faculty and guest soloists. Students studying conducting and orchestration also benefit from working with the University Orchestra.

Repertoire and additional concert information will be available in early September.  Visit http://www.depauw.edu/music/ensembles/orchestra for more information.
