Join the Northwest Indiana Symphony Orchestra and Music Director/Conductor Kirk Muspratt for “Russian Cello” on Friday, October 26, 2018 at 7:30pm at The Auditorium at Living Hope Church (9000 Taft Street, Merrillville/Crown Point border.) The concert will feature Superstar Chicago Symphony cellist Richard Hirschl performing 3 pieces that showcase the instrument’s beauty.
The cello takes the place of the human voice in Rachmaninoff’s Vocalise and Tchaikovsky’s Lensky’s Aria from Eugene Onegin, while the Rococo Variations are a tribute to Tchaikovsky’s hero, Mozart. Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade, based on The Arabian Nights, uses dazzling, colorful orchestration with a mix of Eastern flare to tell the musical stories of an exotic princess who spins her tales each night to stay alive.
“One of the most esteemed cellists in the Chicago symphony orchestra playing your most requested Russian Masterpieces,” Maestro Muspratt said. “Plus Scheherazade is a showcase for the orchestra!”
Tickets are $33-$73 with student tickets at just $10. All ticket holders are invited to join the Maestro before the show at 6:15 for a pre-concert lecture about the evening’s concert.
This concert is generously sponsored by The Times, Crown Point Community Foundation, BMO Harris Bank, MonoSol, and the Giragos Family.
