In this issue: an interview with composer/vocalist Jeremy Dutcher, on his upcoming debut album and unique compositional voice; a conversation with Boston Symphony hornist James Sommerville, as as the BSO gets ready to come to his hometown; Stuart Hamilton, fondly remembered; and an inside look at Hugh’s Room, as it enters a complicated chapter in the story of its life in the complex fabric of our musical city. These and other stories, as we celebrate the past and look forward to the rest of 2016/17, the first glimpses of 2017/18, and beyond!
Improv Shakespeare. Barbershop quartets. Psycho on the big screen (twice!).
Gallery happenings. And musical icons (hi, Willie Nelson!). The sheer variety of
what’s happening on the Indy arts scene this fall is staggering, and we at Indianapolis
Monthly are excited to offer a guide to it all in this first-ever issue of The Ticket.
Whatever your tastes—and however “artsy,” or
not, you consider yourself—I’m betting you’ll find
something in these pages to pique your interest and
get you out on the town. Want to sing “Red Solo Cup”
along with Toby Keith? Find the when and where on
page 34. Still think The Shining is the scariest movie
ever made? Check it out in a historic theater (page 64).
A major new Georgia O’Keeffe exhibit, beat-the-clock
sketching sessions, and offbeat events like Oranje—
they all start on page 47. Plus, there’s nothing like a
holiday outing to The Nutcracker—and we have those
in spades (page 28).
This special issue also offers a glimpse into the
indie artist colonies that are forming the next generation of the Indianapolis arts
scene. What’s driving the city’s young culturati to strike out on their own, rather
than come up through the more traditional channels of the big, established arts
groups? Writer Marc Allan explores exactly that starting on page 16.
Not sure where to begin? Consider the ideas shared by local arts types on page
13, where they explain which events they’re most anticipating this season.
Or just dive in and start choosing your own adventures. In this special bonus
issue of Indianapolis Monthly, we hope you find an event that excites you to hit
