Sinfonietta Pops Orchestra now preparing for fall concerts

TERRE HAUTE — Rehearsals are under way for the Terre Haute Sinfonietta Pops Orchestra’s fall concerts. The “Blue and the Grey” concert commemorating the 150th anniversary of the Civil War will be presented at 3 p.m. Oct. 23 at the Scottish Rite Theatre. The second concert, “Christmas at the Woods,” will be presented at 3 p.m. Nov. 19 at the Cecilian Auditorium at St. Mary-of-the-Woods-College.

“Blue and the Grey” will feature several selections based on folk songs popular during the Civil War years of 1861-1865. “Overture: Sounds from the Sunny South” for full orchestra includes some lesser known melodies such as “Silver Shoes” and “Tapioca” while “Shenandoah” arranged for a small string ensemble, is a well-known folksong. In contrast, “Songs of the Nation” is a selection of American National Songs that includes songs popular in both the North and South such as “Battle Hymn of the Republic,” “The Red, White and Blue,” “Yankee Doodle” and “Dixie Land.”

Carols and melodies such as “Russian Christmas Music” that help guests anticipate the spirit of Christmas will be featured in Christmas at the Woods. This is the fourth year for the popular event that combines the talents of the students in the Music and Theatre Department at SMWC with Wabash Valley musicians. 

The second half of the Sinfonietta season will include a February concert celebrating Black History Month and will be performed at St. Mary-of-the-Woods College. The 2011-2012 season concludes with the concert in collaboration with the Vigo County Public Library’s Big Read program in March at the Scottish Rite Theatre.
