What a grand conclusion to my classical music series with the La Porte County Symphony Orchestra. So many great memories from the Holdcraft Performing Arts Center (formerly Elston). Peter Boyer’s The Dream Lives On: A Portrait of the Kennedy Brothers was certainly a highlight. The audience loved the sing-along opportunities and being offered a rare glimpse into Arthur Sullivan’s serious side with his Symphony in E minor.
The Fantasia program was a Britsh/Irish celebration. Thank you to all who participated and attended, especially the Northwest Indiana Youth Symphony Orchestra!
