ISO returns to the Palladium

The ISO at the Palladium.

The Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra

announced today that it will initiate a six-concert classical series this

season in the Palladium at the Center for Performing Arts in Carmel. The series begins with Handel's Messiah on

Dec. 19 and ends with Beethoven's Ninth Symphony on June 14.

Subscriptions and single tickets to this series will be on sale Monday, Aug. 25.

"I am thrilled that the

Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra is returning to the Palladium," said Tania

Castroverde Moskalenko, president and CEO of the Center for the Performing

Arts. "The ISO is certainly suited for the Palladium's stage, architecture and

acoustics, and adding a full series of the ISO's classical programs complements

our season perfectly. I am truly looking forward

to welcoming the ISO back to the Palladium and to our community."  Of course, the ISO

concluded its Pops series programs on Sunday evenings at the

Palladium through the 2012-2013 season, but it has done

few classical programs at the venue.

"Our new Palladium Series

reinforces that the ISO is committed to sharing great symphonic music with as

many people as possible in our community," said Gary Ginstling, chief executive

officer of the ISO. "The series gives our north side communities an opportunity

to experience a wide range of electrifying orchestral music, with renowned

conductors and soloists, including the ISO Music Director Krzysztof

Urbański, in a gem of a concert hall."

The six-concert series includes

four performances with ISO music director Krzysztof Urbański. Highlights in

the Palladium Series include: Handel's Messiah with the Indianapolis

Symphonic Choir on Friday, Dec. 19, the first time the ISO and the ISC have

performed this seasonal masterpiece in the Palladium;  ISO music director Krzysztof Urbański

making his Palladium conducting debut with Shostakovich's Seventh ("Leningrad")

Symphony on Saturday,

Feb. 7; Urbański conducting Dvořák's Slavonic Dances,

the premiere of ISO Principal Trombone Jim Beckel's new Brass Concerto and

Concertmaster Zach De Pue as soloist for Barber's Violin Concerto on Sunday, March 20;  Mendelssohn's Symphony No. 5 in D Minor ("Reformation") with the debut of up-and-coming German conductor Christopher Altstaedt on Friday, Apr. 17;

Urbanski leading the ISO in a performance of Mahler's Fifth Symphony (with its

famed Adagietto movement) on Sunday, June 5; and Beethoven's Ninth Symphony with Urbański and the ISC on Sunday, June 14.

The ISO last performed Beethoven's great choral work to a capacity crowd at the

Palladium in 2011.   

The ISO served as the Palladium's

first orchestral "acoustical test" before the facility was complete and open to

the public in January of 2011. Since then, the ISO has presented a variety of

concerts at the Palladium, its most recent performance being a Pops concert on April 28, 2013.
