Muncie Symphony Orchestra is putting on a special program this weekend, in Anderson and Muncie, Indiana. Titled "Across American Borders," featuring guest artist Christian Howes on violin and under the direction of Maestro Douglas Droste, the evening begins at 6:30 PM with a special pre-concert talk.
Dr. Scott Routenberg, a professor in the jazz department at Ball State University as well as a composer, will speak along with Droste and Howes at the talk. Routenberg wrote the concluding piece, which Howes and company will bring astonishingly to life. The complete program, included below, begins at 7:30, and tickets are available here.
