ArtsWalk: These Fine Arts Events are Free

I've done this previously through e-mail. As a founding member of Historic New Albany's ArtsWalk, we're always happy to promote arts and cultural events in our region. Here are three great opportunities we're happy to offer to readers of this blog. All three events are free!

Floyd County Youth Symphony
March 19, 2007 • 7:30 p.m.

The FCYS is headed to Walt Disney World later this month. But you don't have to travel to Orlando to see this great bunch of talented musicians perform. A free concert is set for New Albany High School next on Monday at 7:30 p.m. It's free and open to the public.

FCYS was organized in 1974 to give outstanding young musicians the opportunity to experience a challenging music environment. If you would like more information about FCYS please contact kjohnson@nafcs.k12.in.us (Kathy Johnson) or millers4@hughes.net (Susan Miller), or phone (812) 949-4272 ext. 2597, or visit on the web at http://fcysmusic.com.


Visit one of the area's cultural gems. The Ogle Center and Indiana University Southeast are offering to our readers two complimentary tickets to see the following performances.

Peng Peng - Piano
March 16, 2007 • 7 p.m.

Born in China, this 15-year-old pianist has won numerous competitions including the Julliard School’s 2003/2004 Pre-College Mozart Piano Competition. Peng Peng began lessons at age five; at the age of eight he gave his first public recital. An avid composer, Peng Peng studies composition at Julliard with Andrew Thomas. Thus far, he has written two works for solo piano, a cello/piano duo, a string quintet, and a symphony. Peng Peng will perform in the Richard K. Stem Concert Hall at the Ogle Center as part of the New Discovery Series.

Caitlin Tully - Violin
April 20, 2007 • 7 p.m.
At 18 years of age, violinist Caitlin Tully has emerged as one of the most compelling artists of her generation. She made her debut with Vancouver Symphony at the age of ten, displaying a musical maturity and inspiration far beyond her years. Ms. Tully is a student of Itzhak Perlman with whom she began studying in the summer of 2002. She started her violin studies at the age of four after declaring to her parents that all she wanted for Christmas was a violin. Caitlin Tully will perform in the Richard K. Stem Concert Hall at the Ogle Center as part of the New Discovery Series.

To take advantage of this opportunity, visit the Ogle Center Box Office and mention the “special offer.” Box Office hours are Tuesday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to Noon and 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. For more information, call (812) 941-2525. Tickets subject to availability.
