Julliard-trained electric violinist Drew Tretick, who will be joining the Indianapolis Chamber Orchestra for this month’s concert, has taken the stage at such impressive classical venues as the London Palladium. On the other hand, he’s also played for the tourists on the faux streets of Downtown Disney in Orlando.
That’s not the only way Tretick shows range. His recent CD devoted to cinematic compositions covers the familiar (“Over the Rainbow,” “The Way We Were”) and the more esoteric (from the scores for “Cinema Paradiso” and “Quartiere,” for instance). Details on the concert can be found here. And, for your listening pleasure, here’s Tretick stopping Disney foot traffic with “Flight of the Bumblebee.”
