University Orchestra to present “An American in Paris” April 9

April 3, 2015

The Indiana State University Orchestra will perform "An American in Paris: A Four City Tour" 7:30 p.m. April 9 in Tilson Auditorium.

The program is based loosely off the theme of traveling to four cities: Nurnberg, Salzburg, New York and Paris. The repertoire includes Wagner's Overture to "Die Meistersinger von Nurnberg," Mozart's "Concerto for Two Pianos in E-flat," Bernstein's "Three Dances" from "On the Town" and Gershwin's "An American in Paris."

The concert, which is free and open to the public, will also feature School of Music faculty members Beverley Simms and Martha Krasnican as piano soloists. Erik Rohde, director of string activities at Indiana State, is the conductor.
