Celebrating the brilliance of its talented musicians, the THSO is set to showcase several instruments and musicians from the orchestra, including a rockin’ Tuba Concerto!
September 24, 2022 | I Love a Piano with Tony DeSare
The season opens with the return of Terre Haute favorite, Tony DeSare! A triple threat singer/pianist/songwriter, Tony takes you on a journey that celebrates timeless piano legends who have become the cornerstone of pop music culminating with Gershwin’s iconic Rhapsody in Blue. The program highlights perennial favorites of Elton John, Ray Charles, and John Lennon. Plus, the enduring songs of Billy Joel top off a show of piano music like none other. The THSO will also take this show on the road to the Paris Center of Fine Arts in Paris, IL for an encore matinée presentation on Sunday September 25.
November 5, 2022 | Dance Around the World featuring THSO Principal Keyboard, Timothy Stephenson
Czech Dances, Hungarian Dances, Jazz & Blues, and even Highland folk dances fill this concert! It’s an evening made for dance-lovers and toe-tappers. This concert features Kodaly’s Dances of Galanta, Kilar’s Orawa, Dvorak’s Symphony No. 8, and Florence Price’s extraordinary Piano Concerto performed by the THSO’s own Timothy Stephenson. Much of Price’s superb music was hidden away in an attic, unknown and unperformed, until it was discovered less than three decades ago. Her Piano Concerto is filled with American dance rhythms and is sure to get you out of your seat!
December 3, 2022 | Joyful Holidays with Caroline Goodwin
This beloved annual tradition embraces the season with holiday classics and enchanting discoveries! Plan now to let the music of the season weave another magical memory for you and your family.
