DePauw Chamber Symphony: Winter Term 2019 Pre-Tour Concert
Add to Calendar7:30 pm – 8:30 pm
In preparation for its Winter Term 2019 tour of Japan, the elite DePauw Chamber Symphony, the nucleus of the larger DePauw University Orchestra, will play a kick-off concert in Kresge Auditorium at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Jan 8.
Twenty years ago, in January 1999, the DePauw Chamber Symphony traveled to Japan for the first time on its “Coming of Age” tour. Deeply moved through the cultural immersion experience and interactions with students of all ages, many participants considered the tour a life-changing event.
The ensemble’s Japan Tour 2019 will feature music of Japanese and American composers and standard classical composers like Brahms, Haydn, and Johann Strauss, Jr. Keiko Yamada’s “Sunayma” and a Duke Ellington medley will highlight the breadth of material on the concert schedule. Unique features of the program will be faculty viola soloist Nicole Brockmann, performing “Lyric Movement” by English composer Gustav Holst, and a jazz rock feature, “Watch Out!,” composed by Indiana’s own jazz violinist Cathy Morris and arranged specially for the DePauw Chamber Symphony.
This pre-tour concert at DePauw is free and open to the public.
