TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — Hearing classical music performances by local musicians will be as easy as using your smart device.
The Terre Haute Symphony Orchestra will perform its first concert of 2021 virtually, presenting “Harry Potter” film music, Rossini’s “William Tell Overture,” Mozart’s “Eine Kleine Nachtmusik” and Aaron Copland’s “Fanfare for the Common Man.” “The Thrill of the Orchestra” will be April 10 at 7:30 p.m. Virtual tickets — $11.45 per device — went on sale Monday at the orchestra’s website.
The Terre Haute Symphony Orchestra partnered Tuesday with the Swope Art Museum to film musician profile videos, which will be shared on the orchestra’s social-media pages and on its YouTube channel. It’s part of a larger effort to keep the community engaged virtually during the pandemic.
Samantha Johnson-Helms, executive director of the THSO as well as its principal clarinetist, said of the group’s collaboration with the Swope, “I love being able to combine art and music because it’s two different ways of expressing things that words cannot.”
