The Indiana Wind Symphony will present “Among the Trees” at 7 p.m. April 8 at The Palladium, the Center for the Performing Arts, in Carmel.
IWS will perform music inspired by the magnificence and beauty of trees. Accomplished pianist Kelleen Strutz will be featured in Gershwin’s “Rhapsody in Blue,” which concludes the first half of the concert.
“This will be Kelleen’s fourth or fifth performance with us,” IWS Music Director Charlie Conrad said. “She’s been one of our pretty regular soloists. ‘Rhapsody in Blue’ is the only one that doesn’t have a tie-in to trees.”
Conrad said this is the first concert theme devoted to songs about trees.
“We wanted to do the tune, ‘Wind in the Willows,’ and we were going to do ‘Pines of Rome,’ so we took the link off of those,” Conrad said. “We have a couple of new pieces we’re really excited by and a couple that we’ve played before and really enjoyed. ‘Pines of Rome’ is going to be the finale.”
The tickets range from $10 to $35. For more, visit indianawindsymphony.org
