The Indianapolis Symphonic Choir will perform Friday, April 12 at Clowes Memorial Hall on the Butler Campus. They will be accompanied by the Indianapolis Chamber Orchestra, as they perform 20th Century composer Morten Lauridsen’s Lux Aeterna and 18th century German composer Johann Sebastian Bach’s Magnificat. The choice of compositions is centered around the idea of “light”.
A Pre-Concert Maestro Conversation will commence an hour before the concert, and will be open to all ticket holders. It’s a rare opportunity to chat with the composer Morten Lauridsen about the music that will be performed. Guests will also have an opportunity to meet Maestro Eric Stark.
Indianapolis Symphonic Choir soloists will include sopranos Christine Buras and Suzanne Lommler, alto Andrew James Rader, tenor Daniel Blosser and bass Valentin Lanzrein.
The Indianapolis Symphonic Choir celebrates its76th season this year. It is among the most active choirs in the country, putting on over 25 performances before approximately 25,000 audience members. The choir is made possible by the talent and passion of 160 volunteer singers. The collaborative performances with the ISO represent only a portion of the choir’s body of work. Other independent performances take place throughout the year in addition to educational initiatives and events, such as the Sacred Masterworks concert series, always-popular Festival of Carols concerts and even a vocal jazz series titled Mood Indigo.
The Choir even performed with Madonna at half time in Super Bowl XLVI. Perfomances are also broadcast on Sirius-XM Radio.
