LADY DARK is the winner of the Indianapolis Chamber Orchestra (ICO) Compostition Competition. The ICO will perform the work conducted by Kirk Trevor at the Contemporary Music Festival held at Indiana State University in Terre Haute on Thursday, October 23rd at 7:30 p.m. The work will also be recorded and included on the upcoming ICO CD release next spring.
The Indianapolis Chamber Orchestra made its debut on November 18, 1984 as Musicians of the Cloister at Trinity Episcopal Church in Indianapolis, Indiana. In 1987, the name “Indianapolis Chamber Orchestra” was adopted, and the following year Maestro Kirk Trevor was appointed Music Director.
Comprised of 34 professional musicians, the ICO annually presents a concert series of seven performances, utilizing two unique program formats: Masterworks and Pops. The Masterworks and Conversations concerts draw upon a body of music which spans nearly four centuries, and the Pops concert focuses on current popular and theatrical genres. In addition to presenting the full breadth of chamber orchestra repertoire, the ICO’s concert series features internationally recognized concert artists as well as outstanding Indiana performers. The series also presents aspiring young soloists, and showcases the talents of contemporary composers. The ICO has commissioned a number of new works and has performed several world and American premieres.
