The approximately thirty-member East Central Indiana Chamber Orchestra is comprised of a core group of adult musicians from this section of the state, infused anew each school year with a changing roster of area university & high school students.
The orchestra organization’s goals are:
- to promote the appreciation and performance of light classical music to new audiences, especially for families and area citizens whose finances may not stretch far enough to cover attending live, local musical events
- to bring diverse musicians together for community service and mutual personal growth, as well as create an example of music-based ‘getting to know you’ cooperation
- to enhance various concert venues throughout this region by putting Free Public Concert programs close to the neighborhoods of its audiences
From its origin more than twenty years ago (when the organization was known as the Sinfonietta) to the present, this music group’s aim is to share – and sometimes introduce – the immense beauty and inspirational benefits of classical music and to make it non-intimidating and available to all. This intent has continued through many creative and free public appearances over the years.
