Our re-imagined “Art in Music” concert will feature music that has been inspired by visual art. We will open the program with a work by the young American composer T.J. Cole titled Death of the Poet, which was inspired by the painting “Death of the Poet Walter Rheiner” by artist Conrad Felixmuller. We are thrilled to collaborate with acclaimed cellist Eric Byers who will perform Vivaldi’s virtuosic Cello Concerto in A minor, RV 418, and Arvo Pärt’s hauntingly beautiful Fratres. We conclude the concert with selections from Mussorgsky’s majestic and grand Pictures at an Exhibition, arranged by Robert Patterson. Throughout our performance of this work, we will feature art work by local Evansville artists, which will be projected on to a screen above the orchestra.
