Northwest Indiana Symphony’s 2019-2020 Season!

     The Northwest Indiana Symphony Orchestra and Music Director and Conductor Kirk Muspratt unveiled the 2019-2020 Season. The season consists of 5 concerts, 2 classical and 3 pops, as well as the annual Concert with Courses Gala.

     “I promise each of you a season of your most requested favorites,” said Maestro Muspratt. “Please join us for a spectacular 78th season!”

     After a season of following the music to a number of local venues, the Symphony is happy to announce we have a new home. The Auditorium at Living Hope Church, 9000 Taft Street, on the Merrillville/Crown Point border is the new home. We received so many rave reviews of this venue last year, from its intimate setting to it superb acoustics. We are so excited for everyone to experience it. One Symphony. One Home.
