Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra to give May performance in Kresge


The Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra will visit DePauw late this semester.

The group will perform a concert on the last day of class, Thursday, May 12. Classes end at 5 p.m. that day, and the performance begins at 8 p.m. in Kresge Auditorium in the Green Center for the Performing Arts. 

The university continues to work out details regarding ticket information. 

Sophomore Lee Deadwyler, a music education major, said she has heard the orchestra perform three times and is excited for them to come to campus. 

"It's definitely good to exposure to music outside of the DePauw community," she said. "I just like the energy of going to see any live orchestra." 

Founded in 1930 by German conductor Ferdinand Shaefer, the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra performs upwards of 200 concerts a year around the state, according to the orchestra's website. 

"It's a great experience, even if you're not involved in music or musically inclined," Deadwyler said of the orchestra. "You can still appreciate the hard work and what goes into what they do."
