Event

DePauw University Orchestra (Late-November 2015 Concert)
Orcenith Smith, music director
Monday, November 23 at 7:30 p.m.
Green Center, Kresge Auditorium

The DePauw University Orchestra, under the direction Orcenith Smith, begins Thanksgiving Week with an inventive work by Mason Bates, former composer-in-residence for the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. Bates combines this influence with his background as a DJ, synthesizing classical orchestration with some of the beat layers found in pop dance music. His "Mothership" was premiered by the YouTube Symphony at the Sydney Opera House in 2012 to rave reviews. The work serves the DePauw students in their investigation of the 21st-Century Musician curriculum and the expanding horizons of "classical" performance practices.

ABOUT THE ENSEMBLE
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.
