Anderson Symphony Orchestra celebrates English music

Anderson Symphony Orchestra celebrates English music Nov. 9


With the support of the Indiana Arts Commission’s Individual Artist grants, Sweeney has commissioned Jenny Brandon to compose a companion piece for solo voice and oboe to another of Ralph Vaughan Williams' works, "Blake Songs." That piece will be premiered on March 4 at Ball State University with Williams' "Blake Songs."

Sweeney holds degrees from the University of Southern California, Rice University, the University of Michigan and the Royal College of Music in London. A recipient of the Frank Huntington Beebe Foundation Grant, Sweeney chose to study in England.

"England has a long history of exceptional oboe players, most notably Leon Goossens. He was the first oboe player in the world to play with vibrato," said Sweeney. Ralph Vaughan Williams was a professor at the Royal College, as well as composer Edward Elgar.

In addition to the ASO, Sweeney plays with the Lexington Philharmonic, Muncie Symphony Orchestra, Musical Arts Quintet, Indianapolis Chamber Orchestra and Fort Wayne Symphony. She is on faculty at Ball State University's School of Music.

The evening of brilliant English music commences at 7:30 p.m. Prior to the music, Dr. Christopher Holmes of the Anderson University School of Music will present a pre-concert talk at 6:30 p.m. in the Marquee Room.

The Paramount Theatre is located at 1124 Meridian St. in Anderson. For more information or tickets, visit online or call 765-644-2111.
