Love Conquers All!

Love Conquers All!

Paul Shaghoian Concert Hall (map)

He’s back! The “human sub-woofer,” as critic Donald Munro dubbed him last time he was here, will be joining our orchestras again this year to celebrate the amazing operatic works of Italy!

Yes! Scott Piper returns!

Expect this charismatic spinto tenor, with his astounding range and power, to blow the roof off the Shaghoian!

Also expect all your favorite arias—Vesti la giubba, anyone? Nessun dorma?

This is our annual fundraising event, so we will also be offering our outstanding DESSERT AUCTION. Come prepared to bid on fabulous desserts and other offerings.

This is a fundraiser, so we will be offering premium seating for a price. All donations are welcomed and appreciated!

Mother's Day Concert

Our Mother’s Day concert is a perfect celebration for all! Our two younger ensembles, the Youth Chamber and Youth Symphony orchestras, collaborate on a beautiful program to help all of us celebrate our appreciation of families.

Adam Elmore and Thomas Loewenheim conduct.

Your $10 contribution will be gratefully collected at the door.

Carmina Burana!

Our annual Youth Music Extravaganza is popping at the seams this year! Not only are we presenting the winner of this year’s Indianapolis Violin Competition (just announced: it’s 27-year-old Richard Lin!) playing the Khachaturian Concerto, but we are also offering a Valley-encompassing, audience-participating performance of Carl Orff’s groundbreaking Carmina Burana.

Yes, if you’ve seen that commercial for riblets and tenders, or the York peppermint commercial, or this amazing flashmob dance performance from Germany, you know Carmina Burana!

Your freewill donation of $15 will be happily collected at the door. Reserved premium seating will be available in advance for a larger donation.
