Reflecting on Muncie's 2015 sesquicentennial and to honor Indiana's bicentennial, Masterworks Chorale has commissioned a new composition for chorus and orchestra to be premiered as the grand finale of our season. This Middletown Cantata is based on texts drawn from the archives of the Center for Middletown Studies: letters, diaries, poems, interviews, and newspaper articles. These items and the Middletown archives themselves capture a picture of Muncie and the experience of similar Midwestern towns since their founding. Set to music by composer Marjorie Rusche, these texts will bring all of Muncie and Indiana together for a celebration of American life. We hope you will join us for this exciting event on Saturday, May 14, at Muncie Central High School, at 7:30.
