Know Before You Go

Classical music has a rich history that has lasted for centuries because of its broad appeal to audiences. If you’ve never been to an orchestral performance, perhaps you think it’s all stuffy and formal. Not quite! Yes, it has a formality to it, but it’s far from stuffy. Young and old people enjoy the symphony for a variety of reasons; exposure to the arts, a night out, class credit, making a good impression on a first date or to clients, or entertaining family and friends. Whatever the reason, Orchestra Indiana invites you to join us for a concert you won’t forget.
