October 30, 2007

October 30, 2007, Greencastle, Ind. - On Sunday, November 4, the DePauw University Orchestra will present a concert as the final music event of ArtsFest 2007: Arts and the Environment. The program begins at 3 p.m. in the Green Center for the Performing Arts' Kresge Auditorium, and will consist of music based around the theme of "water."

"Many things in our natural environment have been inspirational to creators of art through the ages," says orchestra director Orcenith Smith. "But water is the most key, making life as we know it sustainable. During the concert we will explore the unique definitions of composer's attempts to capture the essence of this important presence in our lives, water, in various forms."DePauw Orchestra Fall 2007.jpg

Music performed will include Handel's Water Music, Smetana's The River Moldau, Respighi's The Fountains of Rome, and Debussy's La Mer (The Sea). The concert is free and open to the public.
