Exciting Arrangements

The 150-member Columbus Indiana Children’s Choir, led by Ruth Dwyer, will sing about the Silver Bells in the title of the Philharmonic’s holiday concerts. “We’re very excited that some of the arrangements for them are done by our own Daniel Powers,” says conductor David Bowden.

A Soloist That’s A Pleasure To Work With

In addition to the children there will be solos by Brown Scholarship winner Rachel Ozols. “Rachel is a pleasure to work with. She’ll be singing the traditional ‘Angels We Have Heard on High,’ and the considerably less traditional—but lots of fun—’Santa Baby,’” adds Bowden.

Plenty Of Work For The Orchestra

There will also be plenty of work for the orchestra, especially the brass players. “We’re doing the ‘Canadian Brass Christmas’ arrangement, featuring our own wind players. And the audience in particular will notice our trumpet player Eddie Ludemah.”

George Walker

George Walker was born in Winchester, Virginia, and raised in Owl’s Head, Maine, and Valhalla, New York. After graduating from the University of Michigan, he came to Bloomington in 1966 and completed an M.A.T. degree in English at Indiana University. George began announcing for WFIU in 1967. Currently, along with regularly hosting classical music shows, he interviews artists in a wide variety of areas and reviews plays and operas. He’s the proud father of grown sons Ben Walker (and his wife Elise Katzif Walker) and Aaron Walker. In his time away from WFIU, George enjoys an active life with wife Carolyn Lipson-Walker, singing, reading, exercising and playing guitar.
