“Unforgettable” is the title of the Terre Haute Symphony’s concert of great American songs with vocalist Kate Hamilton.
“Kate is very popular with our audience,” says conductor David Bowden. “She’s sung with us at an indoor Christmas concert and an outdoor show in the park and people enjoyed her very much both times.”
One of the special features of the concert will be new arrangements by the orchestra’s resident composer and violist Dan Powers. “Dan has a neat version of Cole Porter’s “So in Love” and a just plain gorgeous arrangement of the traditional “Shenandoah,” says Bowden. “And Kate Hamilton will reprise her park performance of Dan’s arrangement of “I’m Gonna float My Boat Right Back to Terre Haute.”
In addition to the songs with Kate Hamilton the orchestra will be featured in a medley from “West Side Story,” “Satchmo! A Tribute to Louis Armstrong,” “Gershwin Rhythms” and a “Salute to the Big Bands.”
