Muncie Symphony Chamber Orchestra
Friday, January 31, 2014
Sponsored by Bank of Geneva
Arts Place is delighted to once again present the Muncie Symphony Chamber Orchestra in concert at Hall-Moser Theatre in Across American Borders. The program will feature an all-"American" program, including standard works of the orchestral repertoire, an Indiana premier by a local composer with an international jazz violinist, and a raucous finale by a composer south of the border. Samuel Barber's haunting Adagio for Strings will be familiar to most ears. Unique to the program will be Ball State University faculty member Scott Routenberg's Concerto for Jazz Violin and Orchestra, featuring recording artist, Christian Howes. The Suite from Appalachian Spring by Aaron Copland will use the original instrumentation for 13 instrumentalists. The program will conclude with Argentinian composer Alberto Ginastera's Estancia: Four Dances. If you were lucky enough to hear the orchestra in our hall in 2009 then you already know the power that comes with combining the perfect acoustics and this outstanding group. This is a not-to-be missed concert!

Lisa Biales and EG Kight
Saturday, April 5, 2013
We wrap up the 2013-14 Hall-Moser Series with “Belle of the Blues” Lisa Biales and “Georgia songbird” EG Kight. The Cascade Blues Association writes, "Lisa Biales has one of those great voices of our times." Lisa certainly sings from the heart, writing playful music about the simple things in life that feel like they have been around forever. Her down home blues vernacular and finger style guitar have been praised Blues in Britain, the Cincinnati Enquirer, and Rootstime (Belgium). Her song Playing With Angels went to #1 in Australia on the Independent Folk Radio Charts. Lisa is joined by EG Kight, who has performed on A Prairie Home Companion and recently opened for BB King.
