I previously gave a sneak peek at some of the Pops concerts on the way from the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra (including appearances by Maureen McGovern and Marvin Hamlisch as well as a Florence Henderson/Shirley Jones TV mamas double bill).

Today, though, the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra announces its 2009/2010 season. I've gone through the full line-up to find a possible highlight for every month of the season:

Sept. 25: Opening weekend's “Salute to America” includes music by Copland, Bernstein and Gershwin with narration by Oscar-winner F. Murray Abraham.

Oct. 1: Yo-Yo Ma performs with the ISO for the first time in 13 years.

Nov. 13-14: Joshua Bell returns, with music by Massenet, Ravel and Stauss.

Dec. 4-23: Fresh from her performance with ISO pops, Maureen McGovern hosts this years holiday show.

Jan. 22-23: Up-and-coming pianist Yuja Wang, who recently signed a five-disc deal with Deutsche Grammophon, performs Rachmaninoff’s Third Piano Concerto. (FYI: It’s a winter/spring season heavy on Rachmaninoff.)

Feb. 19-20: Gramophone-Award-winning pianist Terrence Wilson performs Prokofiev and Rachmaninoff’s “Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini.”

March 26-28: The ISO performs the songs and orchestral portions of “The Wizard of Oz” during a large-screen screening of the film.

April 8: Leila Josefowicz returns for a concert of Shostakovich and Rachmaninoff.

April 29-May 1: Cellist Daniel Mueller-Schott gets his ISO debut with a concert that includes Rimsky-Korsakov’s “Scheherazade.”

May 14-15: The world premiere of James Beckel’s “In the Mind’s Eye: Images for Horns and Orchestra.”

Anything you are particularly looking forward to?
  • It's too bad that the Salute to America theme wouldn't accommodate playing some Salieri while F. Murray Abraham is on stage.
  • I think I'm looking forward to literally every classical concert this upcoming season! I'm thrilled the orchestra is FINALLY playing Mahler. Some of my favorite symphonies have made the season, like Shostakovich 11, Prokofiev 5, and Mozart 41. And the violin concertos this season!! There are quite a few, but Barber, Stravinsky, Shostakovich---three of my faves!

    This season has good stuff all around. I'm looking forward to it!
  • Wow. ALL of this intrigues me.

  • Brian, don't you think there's a good reason we still listen to Mozart and not Salieri? If the ISO offered you Salieri your curiosity might be be satisfied, but your musical soul... not so much. :-)

Bravo!_____NBCSN is available in almost 2 MILLION more homes than just a few years ago, but Indycar STILL gets less total viewers than it did just a few years ago when NBC took over Versus. Attendance and ratings cratered with the end of season races (just when the title battle got "interesting" HAH!__________And now...new race in Basilia, where Miles celebrated the "rich history" of Indycar racing there. Rich history? What, 7 events in the 100 years of AOW? Yep, some history. Well, at least its an oval. It's not??? Are you kidding me??? Gosh darn road racin furriners.

  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 !!!
