Looking to fill out your week's plans with arts and/or entertainment? Here's my short-list of events on my priority list:

 

Renee Fleming,

Feb. 24

Palladium

Thomas Hampson

Feb. 22

Hilbert Circle Theatre

Did you know this opera great was born in Indiana? Unfortunately (for us), that’s Indiana, Pa. Nevertheless, I’m thrilled we’re going to get a visit from this world-class singer. She’s as comfortable with a show tune as she is with an operatic aria. Details here.  And speaking of opera greats, Thomas Hampson, an actual Indiana native (Elkhart), joins conductor Joana Carneiro and the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra for an evening of Mahler and Schumann. Details here.

 

Joffrey Ballet

Feb. 28

Elliott Hall of Music, West Lafayette

I was knocked out by choreographer Christopher Wheeldon’s “After the Rain” when it was presented by dancers from the San Francisco Ballet at last year’s “Evening with the Stars” event. The fact that the piece is on the bill of this program is enough to get me in the car to head up Interstate 65 to West Lafayette. That it’s being performed by one of the leading ballet companies in the world makes it even more of a worthwhile trek. Also on the bill: “Age of Innocence” and “Le Sacre du Printemps.” Details here.

 

“Masters of Illusion Live”

Feb. 23

Clowes Hall

A rotating-performance cast keeps this prestidigitation showcase fresh—and the magicians expected to rotate in for this one-night-only show include Angela Acosta, Farrell Dillon, Michael Giles, Rick Thomas and Tom Burgoon. Details here.

 

Also this week

On Feb 23, I’ll be serving as auctioneer and host for Families First’s annual Stand Up for Families benefit at the downtown Sheraton featuring Tammy Pescatelli. Details here.

Eric Zuber performs with the Indianapolis Chamber Orchestra Feb. 24 at the Indiana History Center as part of the American Pianists Association’s Classical Fellowship Awards competition. Details here

  5. Problem: most of the people responding to this article don't know about this service AT ALL! Why? Lack of awareness. This isn't IndyGo. This is CIRTA: might as well be the mattress company because they are asleep at the wheel - something like 3 directors over the last year? Playing with federal grant money is great! This "region" wants commuter rail service, has spent MILLIONS on Transportation studies yet can't even support a commuter bus line? This is largely for suburban riders to get to downtown - not for "service people to work in our hotels and restaurants" ! Get your head out of your backside!! These are professionals, students etc. that don't want to fight traffic, save some money on parking, gas, stress.... if CIRTA would put their federal money into widely promoting the sevive to Greenwood, Fishers & Carmel instead of finding directors and studies - this would be a successful service. Our family uses(d) it daily for the last several years - but the recent uncertainty & now unreliability due to cuts from Carmel has been a problem. Now, costs us an additional $350/month for gas & parking ( $4200/year) plus vehicle wear, service, environmental impact ... YES - this REGION needs this this type of service in order to keep growing and getting the people it needs to fill skilled positions in downtown Indianapolis. Think outside of your own car !!!
