All three of these works were written in America, but by composers of diverse backgrounds. The American-born Copland's Buckaroo Holiday instantly conjures up images of the historical American West, while virtuoso double bassist Edgar Meyer's captivating and touching Violin Concerto marries an earthy, folk-like feel with toe-tapping contemporary rhythms. Dvorak's Ninth Symphony, written during his American sojourn, embodies the inspiration he found in African-American spirituals and American Indian legends, as well as the musical heritage of his Czech homeland and the German symphonic tradition. Kentucky-born Tessa Lark joins the IPO for Meyer's Concerto. Maestro Sean Newhouse is the winner of the Aspen Conducting Prize and is the former Associate Conductor of the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra and Music Director of the Young Musicians Foundation Debut Orchestra. ipomusic.org/index.php/april-8-2017.html 1800 Lincoln Hwy E, New Haven, IN 46774, USA

Get the LED Out @ RiverEdge
08/25/2017 06:30 PM - 08/25/2017 10:00 PM

Add to Calendar 08/25/2017 06:30 PM 08/25/2017 10:00 PM Get the LED Out @ RiverEdge Since 2015, Get the Led Out has been rocking audiences at RiverEdge Park, and this summer the boys are back for more of the same. The songs you know and love will be played to perfection and as you remember them, but don’t worry, these incredible rockers never repeat a show. Using six guys instead of four, Get the Led Out does something even Led Zeppelin couldn’t do: perform their songs live as they were heard on the studio albums. They are the only cover band out there that’s trying to “replicate those records,” lead singer Paul Sinclair said. From the first Led Zeppelin album to In Through the Out Door, their music is powerful, explosive, authentic and just flat out amazing. Although this is the third year they’ve played at RiverEdge Park, these guys are in demand and we can’t guarantee they’ll be back next year. With over 6,000 fans coming out to the park last year, we’re expecting this show to sell out. Get your tickets now for a musical experience you’ll never forget. Bring your lawn chair or a blanket to sit in the grass. Gates open at 6:30pm and concert starts at 8pm. Before your arrival, please read the RiverEdge Park policies. http://riveredgeaurora.com/visit/ RiverEdge Park, 360 N Broadway St, Aurora, IL 60505, USA
