The Performance

Join us for an evening of exceptional music when conductor Anthony Parnther makes his ISO debut. The concert opens with Samuel Coleridge-Taylor’s Ballade in A Minor, Op. 33, a piece full of emotional depth and lyrical beauty. Violnist Adé Williams joins A Dvořák’s Violin Concerto in A Minor, Op. 53, showcasing virtuosic brilliance and heartfelt melodies that promise to captivate. The night concludes with William Grant Still’s Symphony No. 1 (Afro-American), a pioneering work that blends blues, spirituals, and jazz elements, celebrating the rich cultural heritage of African American music. This concert offers a unique and inspiring journey through the power of orchestral music. Registration is required for this free event.

About the ISO-Sphinx partnership
The Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra (ISO) continues its partnership with the Sphinx Organization to present four free concerts during the 202324 season. Working with the Detroit-based Sphinx Organization, a national nonprofit dedicated to developing young Black and Latinx classical musicians, the collaboration brings Sphinx artists and ISO musicians together for an annual series of chamber and orchestral music at locations throughout Indianapolis. The project is made possible through the generous support of title sponsor Eli Lilly and Company Foundation, along with premier sponsors Honda, Pacers Sports & Entertainment, and the National Endowment for the Arts.
