6 PETER PAST Campbell PRESIDENTS KING Jack Turner (1973-74) Board President Barbara Garton (1974-75) Betty Brown (1975-76) O Norm Leighty (1976-77) n behalf of your hard-working Board of Directors and staff of the Columbus Indiana Jackie Murphy (1977-78) Philharmonic, we welcome you to this concert season. During the past several months, through Sam Chizmar (1978-79) the committed work of our creative Music Director and Conductor, Dr. David Bowden, in Curt DeClue (1979-80) conjunction with our Artistic Team, an outstanding program has been developed for the 2015- 16 season. We continue to enjoy the dedicated efforts of our Executive Director Margaret Powers, who Chuck VanNatta (1980-81) assists the Board in advancing the work of the Columbus Indiana Philharmonic on a daily basis. Gary Gron (1981-82) We believe the Phil is a gem of this community and are confident this season will highlight how music is Susan Anderson (1982-83) critical, not only to the economic development of our community, but to the exceptional quality of life we Dan McKinley (1983-84) enjoy in Columbus, Indiana. Our mission is to create, educate, advocate and perpetuate orchestral, choral Phyllis Ryan (1984-85) and chamber music, including genres of all periods and styles. Your Board and Philharmonic staff accept this Elizabeth Booth Poor (1985-86) mission very seriously and hope you will enjoy the diversity of the 2015-16 musical offerings. Susan Ingmire (1986-87) We also hope you will support the Phil however you can. It may be as a season ticket holder, looking forward Alice Curry (1987-89) to every concert, or as a fan of our Cabaret Series, a new Phil tradition specifically designed to engage William Poor (1989-91) an even broader audience as well as raise money for our education and outreach programs. The inaugural Bob Kaspar (1991-93) Cabaret Series was a resounding success, pioneered through the efforts of our Marketing Committee. I am confident you will enjoy joining us at the Commons for this exciting series. Richard Stenner (1993-95, 1997-98) Barbara Kirr (1995-97) The Philharmonic is also heavily engaged in the education of our youth. Studies clearly link exposure to music with academic success. Through the wonderful work of Vanessa Edwards, the Phils Education Jane Hoffmeister Repp (1998-2000) Director, we continue to excel in offering musical experiences for students throughout the community. The Kaye Ellen Connor (2000-02) Board has embarked upon an extensive collaboration with other community partners, including the United Robert A. Orben (2002-03) Way and the Bartholomew Consolidated School Corporation, to introduce music to the early childhood Robert J. Williams Ph.D. (2003-04) development programs of our local school system in addition to other organizations providing services to Mark S. Elwood (2004-05) young children from all socio-economic circumstances. This may, perhaps, be the most important initiative of the coming year. Judy Summerville (2005-06) Tom Hinshaw (2006-07) None of our work is possible without you, our patrons, supporters, and volunteers. I ask that you continue Elizabeth Lipson (2007-08) your support, but also consider bringing a friend to a concert, a Cabaret, a youth music event or our annual Lobsterfest in May 2016. In addition, we want to hear from you let us know your thoughts! Your John Erickson (2008-09) contribution and support of the Phil is critical. Tom Lego (2009-2012) So relax, and let the music begin. It will enrich your life and our community! Mark Pillar (2012-2015) Board of Directors Officers Roger Brinkman John Sasse Peter King R.

42 Celebrating The Chinese New Year Program Notes Xian Xinghai Yellow River Concerto Far Eastern music has long held a place of special fascination for Western composers, particularly after the turn of the 20th century. Numerous works by famed composers attempted to capture the character of Eastern music, to varying degrees of success. Puccinis Turandot and Madama Butterfly (set in China and Japan, respectively) are beloved by operagoers worldwide; musical theatre lovers feel the same about Richard Rodgers The King and I, which is set in Thailand. Debussy derived much inspiration for his compositions for piano from the Javanese gamelan music he heard at the 1889 Paris Universal Exposition.
