THE INDIANAPOLIS STAR
Savion Glover in “SoLe Sanctuary”
DONNA WARD / GETTY IMAGES
When: 8 p.m. Nov. 2 and 3. Where: Hilbert Circle Theatre, 45 Monument Circle. Tickets & info: $20$75; www.indianapolis symphony.org or (317) 639-4300. John Nelson was always inspiring when he stood on the podium of the Circle Theatre (the name didn’t begin with “Hilbert” at the time) and conducted a big work for chorus and orchestra. The spiritually oriented music director, the orchestra’s fourth since its founding in 1930, was at the helm for 10 seasons until now-conductor laureate Raymond Leppard succeeded him in 1987. With the Indianapolis Symphonic Choir and soloists, Nelson returns to lead the massed forces in Brahms’ “German Requiem,” one of the masterworks in the repertoire so dear to Nelson’s heart. The performances will no doubt stir many hearts.
AN EVENING WITH
“A German Requiem” by Johannes Brahms
When: 8 p.m. Oct. 20. Where: The Palladium, Center for the Performing Arts, 1 Center Green, Carmel. Tickets & info: $38-$83 (discounts for ages 2-12); www.thecenterforthe performingarts or (317) 843-3800. The New York Times described its 2011 premiere as “bare-bones and pure, full of the kind of rhythmic innovation that trips down one path, splinters off in different directions and then sweeps back home.” “SoLe Sanctuary” is a serious, spiritually centered presentation of tap dance as an art form by its top modern practitioner.
