Anderson Symphony Orchestra and AU Chorale Present: Music of Great Britain

Anderson, Ind. — The Anderson Symphony Orchestra is partnering with Katrin Meidell and the Anderson University Chorale to perform the Music of Great Britain. This event will take place in York Performance Hall on Feb. 23 at 3:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Tickets range from $25-$35, $10 for students, and free for the ASO Kid’s Club.

The event will include works from the Capriol Suite by Warlock, Chanson de Nuit by Elgar, Flos Campi by Vaughan Williams, and the intimate and lush Requiem by John Rutter for orchestra, choir, and soloists. The program will also feature violinist Katrin Meidell. As an international performer, Meidell is a strong proponent of new music, she consistently premieres works commissioned by and written for her.

Two of the works for this concert were written for choir and orchestra. The Anderson University Chorale, founded in 1945, has performed many choral-orchestral works over their history. They will soon be featured in the Vaughan Williams Flos Campi and the Requiem by John Rutter. Dr. Rick Sowers, conductor of the ASO, has also served as the conductor of the Anderson University Chorale for the past 35 years. “The Chorale is very excited about collaborating with the ASO for this concert. The Chorale will also collaborate with the Carmel Symphony Orchestra at the Palladium in April, performing the Mozart Requiem and the Lux Aeterna by Lauridsen,” said Sowers.
