Posted on: November 16, 2021

“The Northwest Indiana Symphony Orchestra is going to be performing LIVE AGAIN! This is going to mean heaps and loads to the musicians and to me,” writes Kirk Muspratt, the orchestra’s music director, in Sunday’s (11/14) Times of Northwest Indiana. “Not only are we, as musicians, going to be able to be together again … but we are going to again have the privilege and opportunity to perform for you. This season is going to mean something completely different and more powerful to us than any other we have experienced. And, as one of the blessings of our wild and crazy times, we actually get to perform our first concert for you on the exact 80th birthday of our orchestra—which was Dec. 7, 1941…. Our Holiday Pops concerts have been a powerful tradition and part of peoples’ lives in our Region for many years. I have tried to fill it chock full of pieces that you have requested of me … I hope that you will also check out … each of the [season’s] four concerts.… In April, we have a very unique and powerful chorus concert based on direct quotes from the actual diary of Anne Frank.”
