The University of Indianapolis welcomes the Indianapolis Chamber Winds to its Christel DeHaan Fine Arts Center this Thursday, September 24. This Indianapolis music performance is free and open to all Indianapolis people. Under the direction of Darin Sorley, this group plays a unique repertoire of wind chamber music.
The Indianapolis Chamber Winds is part of the Indianapolis Symphonic Band, a 501 (c) 3 not for profit organization in Indianapolis. This group is composed of volunteer musicians, who rehearse and perform together out of sheer love for music. Their mission is to provide free instrumental music concerts to the public around the Circle City.
The Indianapolis Chamber Winds started small, as a Bob Phillips, the director of ISB, hosted small brass and wood wind ensembles at his house. People of all ages were invited to come and play, to share the joy of music, and one day to share it with an audience. Today the Indianapolis Chamber Winds play a wide selection of pieces. In each they limit the number of musicians to the number of instruments called for in the piece, meaning they can play with as little as five musicians or as many as thirty.
In 2009, their music selections have been extremely popular. They include James Beckel’s “Music for Piano, Winds, and Percussion,” “Suite in Bb, Op. 4” by Richard Strauss, and “Old Wind in New Bottles” by Gordon Jacob. Come hear the classics and your old favorites.
See the Indianapolis Chamber Winds at one of the largest colleges in Indiana, the University of Indianapolis, this Thursday, September 24. They will perform in the Ruth Lilly Performance Hall in the Christel DeHaan Arts Center. Take in a piece of Indianapolis cultural completely free of charge.
