The Fort Wayne Philharmonic announced a series of concerts and activities under the new banner, Fort Wayne Philharmonic Presents!. Events will be produced at various locations throughout the city and include a Violins of Hope retrospective with violinist Vadim Gluzman, and a celebration of the Sestercentennial of the great composer’s birth with a mini Festival called Beethoven@250. The first in this novel series features the Fort Wayne Philharmonic Youth Symphony Orchestras performing the great German master’s monumental 5th Symphony and continues with an all-Beethoven sonatas concert. Christmas at the Clyde highlights the talents of Tony DeSare’s jazz trio and Broadway singer Capathia Jenkins. Philharmonic donors, subscribers, and past ticket holders will receive exclusive invitations to these events.
