Indianapolis Chamber Orchestra Heads to Indy Parks

 

INDIANAPOLIS – (August 30) Indianapolis Chamber Orchestra (ICO) is thrilled to return to the glorious outdoors in collaboration with Indy Parks. On Thursday, September 8 and Friday, September 9, ICO will present free concerts for all and highlight several community partners!

 

On Thursday night at 8PM at Riverside Park’s Taggart Amphitheatre, ICO will perform with the bilingual choir from Global Prep Academy (IPS 44, in the Riverside Elementary Building). ICO has been working with the choir for several weeks in preparation for their performance of “Oye,” a bilingual song arranged for orchestra by the Link-Up Carnegie Hall program. Many of the musical pieces chosen for this concert celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month and the seven Spanish speaking countries celebrating their independence in September. A feature unique to the Riverside performance will be semi-professional Ballet Folkórico Dancers, Amabel and Juan, with a Jalisco dance to El Tirador with ICO accompanying. Returning both evenings are violin and cello students from the Indianapolis Suzuki Academy with a side-by-side performance with the ICO.

 

The following evening, Friday, September 9 at 7PM Indianapolis audiences can catch a near repeat performance at Holliday Park.  Additional aspects on Friday’s concert include a Yoga “break” with Invoke Yoga during the concert. ICO will play the slow movement from Mozart’s “Eine kleine Nachtmusik” with Invoke Yoga leading audiences in simple relaxing poses.  This concert marks the 8th consecutive year that ICO has played at Holliday Park with the support of the Friends of Holliday Park Foundation. Audiences can expect light and fun classical favorites expertly paired with a lovely evening.

 

 

Free reservations can be made online at Eventbrite and are helpful in communicating any weather related changes. Weather updates can also be found on ICO social media, website or by calling 317-940-9607.
