The Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra will partner with Samaritan’s Feet for “Barefoot for a Cause: A Concert with Sole” on April 29 at the Hilbert Circle Theatre in Indianapolis. The concert will benefit the ISO’s Annual Fund, which supports the orchestra’s community engagement and education programs, and Samaritan’s Feet, a nonprofit based in North Carolina that provides new shoes to impoverished children around the world. Ron Hunter, head basketball coach at Indiana University-Purdue University, Indianapolis, will be honored for his work on behalf of Samaritan’s Feet. Hunter first coached in bare feet in 2007 to draw attention to the plight of children who go without shoes every day, and since has led the charity’s Shoe-of-Hope Drive. The family concert, led by guest conductor Alfred Savia, will include music from sports films such as Breaking Away, Hoosiers, Field of Dreams, Chariots of Fire, and The Natural, as well as music by Mozart, Rossini, and John Williams.
