Marion Philharmonic Orchestra Presents “MLK Tribute”
The Marion Philharmonic Orchestra will present its second concert of the 2018-19 season on Monday, January 21, 2019, at 7:30 p.m at the Rediger Chapel/Auditorium, LaRita Boren Campus Center, at Taylor University. “MKL Tribute” will be the MPO’s musical way of acknowledging the life of Martin Luther King, Jr. The concert will feature pianist Dr. Daniel Lin performing Rhapsody in Blue and Art Faulkner as the narrator for Lincoln Portrait. You’ll hear Dvorak’s iconic “Largo” from The New World Symphony, ragtime selections, and Ellington’s “Martin Luther King” from Three Black Kings.
As an extension of its mission to enrich the community through musical programming and education, the MPO offers affordably priced tickets for patrons of all ages. Adult tickets are $20, senior tickets are $18, and students 13 and up are $10. Tickets can be ordered through the MPO Box Office at 765-662-0012 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
As Grant County’s community orchestra, the MPO partners with generous donors each year to provide rich musical and educational experiences. This past season, the MPO engaged more than 1700 young people in its programming through concert attendance, production assistance, performance opportunities and internships. Since it began in 1969, the orchestra has evolved from a group of local volunteer musicians into a professional symphony that features the finest musicians in the state, in the most beautiful and intimate venues in the county.
