“The Terre Haute Symphony Orchestra has an important message: ‘We’re playing for you!’ From September through April 2017, Indiana’s longest continually active orchestra will be offering concerts with something for just about everyone,” reads an unsigned article in Monday’s (8/22) Tribune Star (Terre Haute, IN). “The orchestra kicks off its 91st season Sept. 24 with Ariel Horowitz, a 19-year-old violin phenom who … will perform Tchaikovsky’s Concerto for Violin and Orchestra. THSO Artistic Director and Conductor David Bowden also will lead the orchestra in [Linda Robbins] Coleman’s ‘In Good King Charles’ Golden Days’ and the ‘Enigma Variations’ by Edward Elgar…. THSO’s 91st season closes with one of the most talented “cross-over” singers in the United States, two-time Grammy winner Sylvia McNair, who will dedicate the evening to the incomparable music and lyrics of George and Ira Gershwin…. All concerts begin at 7:30 p.m. in Tilson Auditorium on the campus of Indiana State University.” The season will also include Brahms’s Piano Concerto No. 2, with pianist Sean Chen; a December holiday show; Rodrigo’s Concierto de Aranjuez, with classical/flamenco guitarist Virginia Luque as soloist; and works by Handel, Beethoven, Mendelssohn, Rossini, Mozart, and American composer Steven Karidoyanes.
