The idea was simple: To introduce audiences to the wide range of locally grown arts and entertainment coming up this season.

The format: A kind of "Ed Sullivan Show" for the arts, with performers showing their stuff and chatting about their work—without a microphone, admission price, or a script.

The event: The IBJ A&E Season Preview, which happened Sept. 19 at Butler University.

Some highlights? There were many, but here are two—with more to come.

First, Jane Dutton, frequently seen with Indianapolis Opera but whose talents have also been seen around the world, including the Metropolitan Opera:

Next, David Murray, principal bassist for the Indianapolis Chamber Orchestra and associate professor of music at Butler:

Your thoughts?

  • INdy Arts & Entertainment Alive!
    What a wonderful evening with a fun intro into the world-class talents that the Indianapolis Arts and Culture community - collectively - need to boast about much more often. Thank you IBJ, Lou Harry, and all of the organizations that made last night possible for free!
  • Thanks IBJ
    A very enjoyable evening! My husband and I loved the energetic atmosphere, live entertainment and the opportunity to chat with fellow art and entertainment enthusiasts. We left the event with a wealth of information regarding future cultural events and also a few free tickets to upcoming events. This has the potential of becoming an increasingly popular annual event and I hope Lou & IBJ keep it going.
