DePauw University Orchestra: Thanksgiving Week Concert

The DePauw University Orchestra, under the direction Orcenith Smith, begins Thanksgiving week with an inventive work by Mason Bates, former composer-in-residence for the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. Bates combines this influence with his background as a DJ, synthesizing classical orchestration with some of the beat layers found in pop dance music. The YouTube Symphony at the Sydney Opera House premiered his “Mothership” in 2012 to rave reviews. This event will be held at the Green Center, Kresge Auditorium.
