MSO takes ‘Spring Jubilee’ concert to Honeywell Center
The Manchester Symphony Orchestra closes its 2015-16 season with “Spring Jubilee” at the Honeywell Center in Wabash.
It is 3 p.m. Sunday, April 24. Tickets for the general public are $10; admission is free for MU students, faculty and staff with ID, and guests 18 years and younger.
Guest artists are the Mossburg Strings, and the season finale presents the orchestral premiere of Diane Whitacre's Casey at the Bat. It was originally a work by the northeast Indiana composer for flute, piano and a narrator, and it has been transcribed for a symphony orchestra.
The “Spring Jubilee” will also feature student concerto winners from Manchester University.
Founded in 1939, the orchestra is a collaboration of professional and community musicians, along with selected MU faculty, staff and student musicians. Scott Humphries, an assistant professor at Manchester University, conducts the symphony orchestra.
Humphries also conducts the MU Symphonic Band and is principal conductor of the Fort Wayne Area Community Band.
