FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
July 19, 2013
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- In the third such collaboration in recent years, the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music is partnering with WFIU Public Radio to present a simulcast of the Festival Orchestra and Chorus concert at 8 p.m. on Tuesday, July 23, in Auer Hall.
The broadcast -- which may be heard at 103.7 FM in Bloomington and via the web at wfiu.org -- will be co-hosted from the WFIU studios by Jacobs Dean Emeritus Charles Webb and David Wood, the station's music director and arts bureau chief.
The pair will introduce and discuss the program, which features Barber's Adagio for Strings/Agnus Dei and Mozart's Mass in C Minor ("The Great") conducted by Jacobs faculty member Dominick DiOrio.
Brief commentary from DiOrio will be played before each piece.
The two similar recent collaborations include the final Bloomington concert of the Beaux Arts Trio, in June 2008, and the dedication of the Maidee H. and Jack A. Seward Organ in Auer Hall, in April 2010.
The summer Festival Orchestra -- a distinguished ensemble featuring Jacobs students and faculty with guests -- was founded by Webb in 1973, during the first year of his tenure as dean (1973-1997).
Tickets for the Auer Hall concert -- $8 for any student and $15 for non-students -- are available from the Musical Arts Center Box Office (812-855-7433) and online.
Anyone holding a current WFIU/WTIU MemberCard is eligible for two-for-one admission.
