Jupiter and Titan: ASO goes big to launch new season

Anderson Symphony Orchestra goes big to launch new season Saturday

ANDERSON, Ind. — It’s a little out of this world. The Anderson Symphony Orchestra performs two symphonies Saturday night with the celestial nicknames of Jupiter and Titan. The stage will be packed at Anderson’s historic Paramount Theatre with more than 80 professional musicians under the direction of maestro Rick Sowers when the ASO launches its 46th season.

The epic production includes Gustav Mahler’s Symphony No. 1, known as the “Titan.” The evening begins with Mozart’s Symphony No. 41, known as the “Jupiter Symphony.”

“The first two rehearsals have proven that the orchestra we’ve assembled for Saturday night’s concert is the best ever to take the stage,” said Sowers. “The quality of the music is astonishingly beautiful, and any concerns over a larger than normal orchestra are gone. The sound we’re producing is lush and exciting, and I’m proud of the hard work our musicians have dedicated to this piece.”

While the performance begins at 7:30 p.m., enthusiasts can partake of a pre-concert lecture by Chris Holmes, professor at Anderson University, in the Marquee Room at 6:30 p.m. Holmes will take a look at the stories of the evening’s composers, Mozart and Mahler.

Saturday’s performance marks the first of five concerts in the ASO’s 2013-2014 season. Saturday, Nov. 9, the orchestra celebrates British composers, and features principal oboist Aryn Sweeney.

The orchestra will perform its Christmas concert on Saturday, Dec. 14, with favorites old and new, including “White Christmas” and “Sleigh Ride.”

Sandi Patty teams up with the ASO for a Valentine’s concert on Feb. 15.

The ASO will cap the season with Carl Orff’s famous “Carmina Burana” on Saturday, April 5.

Visit andersonsymphony.org for more information and to listen to clips for a sampling of the works to be performed.

Tickets for Saturday’s Jupiter and Titan ASO premiere start at $18 for seniors, $20 for adults and $5 for students. They are available online at andersonsymphony.org or call 644-2111.
