Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra Presents 'Symphonic Hits' at DePauw Thursday Night

May 9, 2011

95993May 9, 2011, Greencastle, Ind. — Two leaders within the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra's string section -- concertmaster Zach De Pue and principal violist Michael Isaac Strauss -- will take center stage at DePauw University this Thursday, May 12, as soloists in a concert of "Symphonic Hits."  The program begins at 8 p.m. in Kresge Auditorium, located within DePauw's Judson and Joyce Green Center for the Performing Arts.  There is no admission charge and all are invited to attend. Doors will open at 7 p.m.

Thursday's program will feature Mozart's Sinfonia concertante for Violin and Viola and the Baroque masterpiece, The Four Seasons by Vivaldi.  

The concert, and a "Meet the Artist" event featuring De Pue and Strauss which was held at DePauw May 3 (the two musicians are seen in the Green Center's Great Hall in photos accompanying this article), are launching a multi-year education and community outreach partnership between the ISO, the 95976University and the city as a result of Greencastle recently being designated a Stellar Community by the State of Indiana.  This collaboration will evolve to include more free concerts and master classes, the potential formation of a youth orchestra and other educational programs.
