Area orchestra sets up its final performance of season

Tuesday, March 17, 2009

TERRE HAUTE -- The Terre Haute Symphony Orchestra will close its 2008-09 season when nationally known Five By Design makes a return trip to Terre Haute Saturday.

Join the Terre Haute Symphony Orchestra and music director David Bowden at Indiana State University's Tilson Auditorium for "Club Swing."

The evening's concert is sponsored by First Financial Bank, Regional Hospital and Clabber Girl.

Five By Design's signature harmonies have withstood the test of time in a career that stands out on America's musical landscape, spanning more than 15 years.

Their show, "Radio Days," debuted in the 80s at the Kennedy Center with the National Symphony Orchestra and was noted by the Washington Post as, "one of the best pops performances of the season."

Their more recent production, Club Swing, follows the rise and fall of the big band era from 1937-55.

The scenario is the fictional Hotel Crosby, "where the music's hot, the drinks are cool and the legend lives forever."

Complete with signature vocals, fashions of the era, and a touch of humor, it's a show not to miss.

Whether it's backstage at Club Swing or live at the Club, those attending will enjoy favorites like the "Bugle Call Rag," "Begin the Beguine," and "One for my Baby."

The music from Spike Jones takes a turn as well as tunes by Johnny Mercer and Hoagy Carmichael.

Come early for "Supper Before the Symphony," a buffet meal served at 5:30 p.m., in the Heritage Ballroom.

Cost for the meal is $20 per person and is by reservation only.

Pre-paid reservations may be made by calling the Terre Haute Symphony office at 1-812-242-89476 and using a credit card.

The performance will take place at Tilson Auditorium, off 7th Street in Terre Haute.

Event parking will be available at the parking garage at 7th and Cherry streets.

Tickets for the concert may be purchased at the Hulman Center Ticket Office from 8 a.m.-5 p.m., or by accessing www.TicketMaster.com, or at the door Saturday.

The ticket window will open at 6:30 p.m., Saturday.

The performance will begin at 7:30 p.m.
