Indianapolis Chamber Orchestra: War in Music

October 16, 2021 @ 7:30pm

Recognizing the connections between war and composition, ICO highlights Butler University Artist-in-Residence, Michael Schelle. Resilience for viola, cello and orchestra commemorates the 70th Anniversary of the end of WWII. Butterworth, a casualty of WWI, was inspired by the English countryside and traditional folk melodies in his “Idyll” On the Banks of Green Willow. Beethoven’s Overture to Egmont was his reaction to the Napoleonic Wars.
