Everyone loves good music. In the era of Youtube, we can enjoy pop music videos, piano recitals, and orchestral music in the convenience of our homes. However, there are times when we yearn for the immediacy of a live performance. At such times, The Center for the Performing Arts steps in to satisfy that need.
Best of all, this vibrant performing arts campus in Carmel is located less than 10 minutes from Maple Knoll Apartments. The facilities include a 1,600-seat concert hall, a 200-seat studio theater, and a 500-seat proscenium theater.
Did you know that The Center for the Performing Arts hosts several resident companies that offer dozens of performances throughout the year? Here are some of them:
Carmel Symphony Orchestra
Established in 1975, the Carmel Symphony Orchestra utilizes music as a vehicle for community enrichment.
The orchestra comprises 85 passionate musicians who perform some of the world’s greatest symphonic music. Each remains particularly dedicated to enhancing the community’s quality of life through artistically excellent performances.
The orchestra especially maintains a strong educational presence in the community through its Family Fun! and Sounds Exciting! concerts. Each year, the orchestra also hosts the Young Artist Concerto Competition for student musicians in Indiana. The winner receives a cash prize and gets the privilege of performing with the entire Carmel Symphony Orchestra.
Actors Theatre of Indiana
In 2005, three professional musicians moved from New York City to the Hoosier State to found the Actors Theatre of Indiana (ATI).
Cynthia Collins, Don Farrell, and Judy Fitzgerald have over 60 years of combined experience as actors, directors, and choreographers.
Presently, ATI is the only equity theater in Hamilton County. Its mission is to offer quality performances that engage, inspire, and educate audiences in the community.
If you enjoy live theatrical performances, you’re certainly in for a treat. Upcoming shows later in the year will include fascinating performances such as Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, A Comedy of Tenors, and Alabama Story. The box office is open Mondays through Saturdays for ticket purchases.
Gregory Hancock Dance Theatre
The Gregory Hancock Dance Theatre is a professional company that focuses on exploring and presenting universal truths to its audience. Its dancers perform everything from ballet to modern dance. More importantly, each performance features a unique style and highlights the human body’s ability to express a multitude of emotions.
Presently, the Gregory Hancock Dance Theatre has a repertoire of over 120 shows. Its talented artistic director has also won numerous awards for his exceptional choreography skills.
