The Indianapolis Chamber Orchestra (ICO) reaches over 30,000 people annually through its seven-concert series, arts partner services, education and community programs, and radio broadcast. Marking its 37th season in 2021-2022, the ICO is under the direction of Music Director and Principal Conductor Matthew Kraemer. The ICO is the professional Orchestra-in-Residence at the Howard L. Schrott Center for the Arts, Butler Arts Center. Comprised of 34 professional musicians, the ICO advances and promotes music composed for the small orchestra through professional concert performances and education and outreach programs. The ICO annually presents a concert series that features internationally recognized guest artists, superior local talent, and aspiring young soloists, and showcases the talents of living composers. The ICO’s artistic programming delivers on a brand promise of “ICO-Intimate-Classic-Original” concert experiences, utilizing innovative program formats and intimate concert venues. The ICO takes an active role in perpetuating the art form by commissioning and performing works of living composers, as well as venerable masterworks. The ICO also has the distinction of presenting several world and American premieres. The ICO is featured prominently in local media with its weekly radio broadcast on WFYI, 90.1 FM. Featuring selections from ICO concerts, this strategic initiative


increases community awareness of the ICO and enhances its professional image. In 2017, the ICO was featured on the PBS broadcast of “A Festival of Carols with Sylvia McNair.” Premiered in 2016, James Aikman’s Peacemakers became the subject of an Emmy Award-winning PBS documentary in 2017. In May 2015, the ICO released its first commercial CD, Momentum 21. The ICO is frequently engaged to provide professional accompaniment for area arts and educational institutions, such as the Indianapolis Symphonic Choir and American Pianists Association. In 2021-2022, the ICO will serve in its 15th year as Orchestra- inResidence for the Indiana State University Contemporary Music Festival. Through its affiliation with the three-day immersive educational event, the ICO sponsors a nationwide competition for the composition of new works for chamber orchestra. In 2016, the ICO collaborated nationally with the American Composers Orchestra’s “EarShot” program as the first chamber orchestra to present orchestral readings of new works by five emerging American composers. Offering a full range of education and outreach programs for all ages, ICO Funtastic Classics and Residency programs take ICO musicians into area schools for live programs or classroom coaching. Additionally, the ICO partners with Indy Parks to present free, family-friendly concerts each summer.

Welcome from the Executive Director DANA E. STONE Dear ICO Patrons, Welcome to the ICO’s 2021-2022 Discover & Connect Season. We hope you experience familiar favorites and discover new works as you engage with the ICO over this season. The past 18 months have proven that our community recognizes the value of the arts and the mission of the ICO. We are distinctly honored by your support and your attendance as we return to more traditional concert experiences. You’ve come to expect artistic excellence and innovative programming at the ICO, and this season will not disappoint. Our commitment to new music includes two world premiere performances, works by living composers on almost every concert, multi-media productions, and cross disciplinary collaborations. Every year we rely on the support of our community to continue. This season we return with our full programming, but we acknowledge that we likely will be building on audiences as the season continues. We welcome all new audiences and those returning whether live or virtual.


For these reasons your continued support through tax-deductible donations are impactful. Also make sure you are signed up for our e-newsletter to register for preconcert talks, Mocktails & Masterpieces, and concert pairings. Words cannot accurately express our appreciation to YOU: our patrons, donors, sponsors, advertisers, grantors, and more. Together you and those seated around you have helped ICO to continue making music through very challenging times. I hope you enjoy the performance this evening and will join us again soon. With sincere thanks, Dana E. Stone

Conductor MATTHEW KRAEMER Recognized for his “musical sensitivity” and “energized sense of interpretation”, Matthew Kraemer is quickly making his mark among young American conductors for his inspired performances and versatility. The Buffalo News notes, “He presents a tall, dignified and stately podium presence with a quite clear beat, a good sense of shaping melodic lines, and an all business attitude that focused on the music without any histrionics.” Kraemer was appointed Music Director and Principal Conductor of the Indianapolis Chamber Orchestra in 2015 and has extended his commitment with the ICO through 2023. He additionally serves as Music Director of the Butler County Symphony (PA), the Marion Philharmonic (IN), and Artistic Advisor of the Muncie Symphony (IN). His active guest conducting schedule includes appearances with many of the nation’s finest orchestras, including the Atlanta, Baltimore, Cincinnati, Columbus, Houston, Indianapolis, Jacksonville, Nashville, North Carolina, Saint Louis, Spokane, Syracuse, and Toledo symphony orchestras, as well as Canada’s Mississauga Symphony, Niagara Symphony, and Hamilton Philharmonic and in Europe with the Vidin Philharmonic and the Orquesta de Cadaqués. Upcoming highlights include performances with Tessa Lark, Richard Lin, Jinjoo Cho, Sterling Elliott, Michael Cavanaugh, Dee Daniels, the PRISM Quartet, and Dance Kaleidoscope. Future guest conducting engagements include the Arkansas Symphony, Toledo Symphony, Erie Philharmonic, Louisiana Philharmonic, and Rochester Philharmonic.


Kraemer served as associate conductor of the Buffalo Philharmonic from 2009 to 2014, where he regularly led the orchestra in each of its concert series. A passionate advocate for new music, he has performed the works of many living composers during his career and has led the American Composers Orchestra’s EarShot readings with several orchestras. The ICO was awarded a Virginia B. Toulmin commission for emerging women composers under his leadership. Kraemer served as Music Director of the Erie Chamber Orchestra (20122017) and associate conductor of the Virginia Symphony Orchestra (2007- 2010). Increasingly recognized for his committed advocacy of music education and his devotion to young audiences, he currently serves on the faculty at New England Music Camp, where he conducts the symphony orchestra and teaches chamber music. The Buffalo Philharmonic’s award-winning education concerts grew exponentially under his leadership, expanding to reach over 40,000 students throughout western New York. He played an integral role in the creation of the orchestra’s successful live broadcast concerts with Time Warner Cable, as well as implementing new collaborations with many organizations in the Buffalo community. His performances are broadcast regularly on NPR’s Performance Today. Recipient of the distinguished Herbert von Karajan Conducting Fellowship and the Bruno Walter Career Development Grant, Kraemer served a residency with the Vienna Philharmonic at the 2006 Salzburg Music

Hailed by The New York Times for her “radiant, liquid tone,” and “exquisitely phrased” singing and by Opera UK for “a sound of remarkable purity,” soprano Sarah Brailey enjoys a career that resists specialization. She has sung Handel’s Messiah with The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra; recorded cello and vocal soundscapes for the Fog x FLO public art installation in Boston’s Emerald Necklace; and performed with Kanye West and alternative-classical vocal band Roomful of Teeth at the Hollywood Bowl. Recent highlights include serenading the Mona Lisa at the Louvre Museum with John Zorn’s Madrigals, singing Barber’s Knoxville: Summer of 1915 with the Colorado Symphony, and recording The Soul in the world premiere recording of Dame Ethel Smyth’s The Prison, for which she has received a 2021 GRAMMY for Best Classical Solo Vocal Album.

Mezzo-soprano Abigail Nims is renowned as a musician of integrity and versatility for her performances of repertoire spanning from Bach, Handel, and Mozart to Crumb, Ligeti, and premieres of contemporary works. Her 2017-18 season solo appearances include Mozart’s Requiem with the Colorado Symphony Orchestra, also the ProMusica Chamber Orchestra of Columbus, and the premiere performance of Missy Mazzoli’s newly commissioned opera, Proving Up, with Opera Omaha. Engagements during the 2016-17 season included Handel’s Messiah with the Naples Philharmonic and Tucson Symphony Orchestra, Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9 with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, Mahler’s Symphony No. 2 with the Duluth Superior Symphony, and Dvorák’s Stabat Mater with the Bach Festival Society of Winter Park.

A favorite of a number of opera companies large and small across the United States in recent years, Joseph Gaines has been a regular guest artist at Opera Philadelphia, Utah Opera, Pittsburgh Opera, Central City Opera, and many others. An alumnus of the apprentice training programs at Sarasota Opera, Central City Opera, and Glimmerglass Opera, he joined the artist roster of The Metropolitan Opera for the first time in 2013, covering Caius in Verdi’s FALSTAFF, conducted by James Levine.

With a voice praised for its “dark-hued splendor” (San Francisco Gate), baritone David Rugger enjoys a blossoming career in oratorio, early music, and ensemble singing. Equally at home as an ensemble musician and as a soloist, David’s repertoire encompasses music written from the Renaissance through to the present day, though he is especially regarded for his interpretation of J.S. Bach.


A voracious musician with a love of repertoire from many distinct styles and periods, he has been a featured soloist with some of the finest American orchestras, including The Philadelphia Orchestra, The Detroit Symphony, The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra, and a number of chamber and baroque ensembles throughout the United States and abroad. Gaines studied singing at the University of Houston, the Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy Hochschule für Musik und Theater in Leipzig, Germany, and with Leyna Gabriele in New York. He is represented worldwide by John Miller of Pinnacle Arts Management in New York.


Recent highlights include solo appearances with the Washington Bach Consort, Bach Society of St. Louis, Bach Society of Dayton, Bach Akademie Charlotte, Mountainside Baroque, Alchemy Viols, Indianapolis Baroque Orchestra, Bourbon Baroque, and several Bach cantata series. David has also performed as an ensemble musician with Vocal Arts Ensemble (Cincinnati), Seraphic Fire, and Conspirare. He is an alum of the American Bach Soloists Academy and was a Virginia Best Adams Fellow at the Carmel Bach Festival. He has performed under the batons of Dana Marsh, Scott Allen Jarrett, Paul Goodwin, Jeffrey Thomas, Eric Stark, Michael Beattie, and John Butt. Rugger studied voice at Indiana University, where his voice teachers and coaches included Robert Harrison, Steven Rickards, Patricia Stiles, and Davis Hart. A pedagogue as well as a performer, David enjoys teaching students of all ages and levels. He is a member of NATS and serves on the voice faculty at Butler University.

In 2016, he made his own debut with the Utah Symphony conducting Handel’s Messiah. Eric has conducted several professional orchestra and choir recordings in Hollywood and Utah. During his time in Salt Lake City, he was the Associate Conductor of the Utah Chamber Artists, directed the Chancel Choir at First Presbyterian Church, and taught choirs and music classes at Westminster College and The Madeleine Choir School.

Not an Expert? These FAQs might help! What is a Chamber Orchestra? A Chamber Orchestra simply is a small orchestra of up to 50 musicians – compared to larger size symphony orchestras. Some works frequently performed by symphony orchestras were actually composed for a chamber orchestra. How should I dress for a concert? We want you to feel comfortable, so we don’t have a dress code. Some people might dress up, but this is completely voluntary and a personal choice. The musicians and conductor will have a more formal dress code to achieve a unified look for the orchestra. What does a conductor do? The conductor sets the tempo, shapes the sounds and controls the interpretation of a composition. For instance, if the conductor wants to emphasize a certain melodic phrase, they will communicate this to the musicians via gestures. Much of the work of a conductor happens before the performance: while studying the musical score on their own, and during rehearsals.

What does a concertmaster do? The concertmaster plays the first violin and serves as a leader between the musicians and the conductor. The concertmaster initiates the tuning of the orchestra, assures synchronized bowings of all violinists (so that a unified look and sound are achieved), and helps the conductor communicate their interpretation to the musicians. Is it OK to clap between movements? Yes! We appreciate your enthusiasm. You might find that some people wait with applause until the last movement has finished – and this is OK too because it acknowledges the unity of the work. What makes a piece a symphony? A symphony is a large-scale orchestral work that is typically divided into 4 movements. In many cases, the first and last movements of a symphony are fast and dramatic, the 2nd movement is more lyrical and the 3rd movement dancelike. However, creative license acknowledges that rules are made to be broken, so there are deviations. What is a concerto? A concerto highlights one or, more rarely, multiple soloists. There are concertos for almost any musical instrument, but the most frequent concertos are for the piano or the violin. The soloist will be positioned in front of the orchestra and the music will often highlight the virtuosic skills of the soloist. Most concertos are in three movements with a lyrical second movement and a fiery 3rd movement.

ICO COMMITMENT TO DIVERSITY, EQUITY, INCLUSION, & ACCESS The ICO is committed to increase inclusion, diversity, equity and access in all aspects of the organization and strives to be a leader among non-profit performing arts organizations. Toward this goal, we will establish policies, procedures and training programs, pursue specific initiatives and commit significant resources. This policy is closely aligned with our long-term strategic plan. Inclusion, diversity, equity and access is closely connected to our mission of offering music for the small orchestra to everybody in the community, including those who might have had little exposure to classical music in their lives. We commit to explore any underlying, unquestioned assumptions in our organization that prevent us from reaching these goals. The Executive Director and Music Director are expected to be visible leaders for achieving diversity and inclusion for the organization.

James Aikman and his music have quietly, consistently received prestigious honors and notable performances for several decades. His music has variously been described in periodicals such as Fanfare Magazine, Gramophone: Sounds of America, The Strad, and The New York Times, as “richly sonorous,” “fascinating and inventive,” “plaintively beautiful,” “exciting, inventive and fresh!” James has taught at Indiana University, The University of Michigan, Butler University and served as Composer-in Residence with the Indianapolis Chamber Orchestra, the San Miguel de Allende International Chamber Music Festival and Cathedral Arts of Indianapolis. Aikman’s work Peacemakers: A Filmic Oratorio was commissioned and premiered by the Indianapolis Chamber Orchestra. It received a 2016 Masterpiece Grant from the Indiana Arts Commission, and was named a Legacy Project by the State of Indiana Bicentennial Commission (1816-2016). A WFYI documentary of the Peacemakers premiere won a regional Emmy Award for Special Event Coverage in 2017.


“To create, to seek one’s true potential, requires effort, consistent and dedicated. To write music is an honor. Too many take art for granted, and this reduces its quality as well as its impact on humanity. We each have a duty to aspire to the greatness that has been passed to us through the ages in all fields of endeavor — to know it, to reach it, and to advance it.” - James Aikman

Taimur Sullivan enjoys a prolific career as a soloist, chamber musician, and educator. His performances have taken him from the stages of Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center to engagements in Russia, Germany, and throughout Latin America. The New York Times praised him as “outstanding… his melodies phrased as if this were an old and cherished classic, his virtuosity supreme.” The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel wrote that Taimur is “talented, fearless and sensitive…the sounds he made were fully and deliciously drawn.” He appears on over twenty-five recordings for the New World, Mode, Albany, innova, Capstone, Mastersound, Bonk and Zuma labels, and has most recently recorded James Aikman’s Concerto for Alto Saxophone with Russia’s St. Petersburg Symphony. In honor of his distinguished record of promoting and presenting new works for the saxophone, including over 150 premieres, Meet The Composer named him one of eight “Soloist Champions” in the U.S. Mr. Sullivan is Associate Professor of Saxophone at Northwestern University Bienen School of Music.
