The MasterWorks Festival, the month-long sumptious diet of classical music which inhabits Winona Lake, Indiana, for a month each summer, concludes its 2005 Festival with a series of glorious concerts today and tomorrow.
The thundering 115-piece MasterWorks full orchesta, pictured here (photo by Al Disbro, double-click on photo to enlarge for viewing), will play Rachmaninoff’s Symphony No. 2 tonight and tomorrow night in free concerts at Rodeheaver Auditorium.
In addition, tonight’s program will include Philadelphia Orchestra Concertmaster David Kim playing Tchaikovsky’s Concerto for Violin and tomorrow night will feature Christopher Harding playing Beethoven’s incomparable “Emperor” piano concerto No. 5.
At 4 p.m. today and tomorrow, the MasterWorks Theatre Troupe is presenting “Anne of Green Gables” at the Hillside Amphitheatre.
While the U.S. MasterWorks Festival concludes tomorrow, MasterWorks Europe has its opening concert July 31. MasterWorks founder and director Dr. Patrick Kavanaugh is the new chair of the music department at Grace College in Winona Lake, and many upcoming programs join the forces of MasterWorks with college musicians.
