Continuing the Muncie Symphony’s recent trend of offering new and innovative programs, the 2014-15 season will not disappoint! Join us on our “Imperial Visit” as we feature a concerto by the Chinese instrument, the guzheng, and end with a journey on La Mer. Take a trip through music history in our “Time Machine” starting with Gabrieli and ending with Prokofiev. Our Holiday Pops will feature a brand new show with local artist, Jennie DeVoe. All gamers and symphonic music lovers will enjoy “Video Games Live,” a special event featuring the best game music performed by the MSO, combined with synchronized lighting, video, live action, and audience interactivity. Closing the season will be our “Folk Festival” with the winner of the International Violin Competition of Indianapolis. Get your season tickets today!
