ISO season: Cole Porter, Sandi Patty, Mario Venzago

The most surprising thing on the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra’s lineup isn’t the mix of classics and pops or the name of a guest violinist or pianist. Rather, it’s the return of former Music Director Mario Venzago who, now that the previous regime is largely gone, will be coming back to Indy to conduct a concert of Mahler and Schumann in November.

Current Music Director Krzysztof Urbanski will get the season started for an opening night concert Sept. 20 with violinist Hilary Hahn. He’ll stick around for more fall concerts, including Verdi’s “Requiem” in October. He’ll also be leading most of the winter and spring classical concerts, including a world premiere by Wojciech Kilar Feb. 28 to March 1, Stravinksy’s “The Firebird” in March, and Dvorak’s “New World” with violinist Joshua Bell in June.

On the pops front, we’ll get a screening of “Singin’ in the Rain” with live musical accompaniment, Ann-Hampton Callaway singing the Barbra Streisand songbook, and a world premiere concert version of Cole Porter’s “Anything Goes.” This year’s Yuletide Celebration will welcome back Sandi Patty as host with The von Trapps as special guests. The group will also stage an ISO-less concert during its stint here. Prepare to yodel.

And for something completely different, there’s April’s “Quantum: Music at the Frontier of Science,” a multimedia piece created by Edwin Outwater and the Institute of Quantum Computing.

    Not much to get excited about. Will be interesting to see what surprises The Palladium has in store when they announce their new season.

  1. These liberals are out of control. They want to drive our economy into the ground and double and triple our electric bills. Sierra Club, stay out of Indy!

  2. These activist liberal judges have gotten out of control. Thankfully we have a sensible supreme court that overturns their absurd rulings!

  3. Maybe they shouldn't be throwing money at the IRL or whatever they call it now. Probably should save that money for actual operations.

  4. For you central Indiana folks that don't know what a good pizza is, Aurelio's will take care of that. There are some good pizza places in central Indiana but nothing like this!!!

  5. I am troubled with this whole string of comments as I am not sure anyone pointed out that many of the "high paying" positions have been eliminated identified by asterisks as of fiscal year 2012. That indicates to me that the hospitals are making responsible yet difficult decisions and eliminating heavy paying positions. To make this more problematic, we have created a society of "entitlement" where individuals believe they should receive free services at no cost to them. I have yet to get a house repair done at no cost nor have I taken my car that is out of warranty for repair for free repair expecting the government to pay for it even though it is the second largest investment one makes in their life besides purchasing a home. Yet, we continue to hear verbal and aggressive abuse from the consumer who expects free services and have to reward them as a result of HCAHPS surveys which we have no influence over as it is 3rd party required by CMS. Peel the onion and get to the root of the problem...you will find that society has created the problem and our current political landscape and not the people who were fortunate to lead healthcare in the right direction before becoming distorted. As a side note, I had a friend sit in an ED in Canada for nearly two days prior to being evaluated and then finally...3 months later got a CT of the head. You pay for what you get...
