Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra to perform in Ellis Park

DANVILLE — Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra (ISO) will present “Broadway Standing Ovations” at 8 p.m. July 11 in Danville’s Ellis Park, Martin Amphitheater.

Under the direction of Conductor Jack Everly, there will be featured performances by vocalists Ben Crawford, Ted Keegan, and Christian Bianco. The ISO will perform selections from “Phantom of the Opera,” “Jekyll & Hyde,” “Les Misérable,” and more.

Everly is the principal pops conductor of the Indianapolis and Baltimore Symphony orchestras and music director of the Duke Energy Yuletide Celebration presented annually in December in Indianapolis. Originally appointed by Mikhail Baryshnikov, Everly was conductor and music director of the American Ballet Theatre for 14 years.

Keegen is a native of Watertown, N.Y., and has performed as the Phantom in “The Phantom of the Opera” on Broadway and has performed the role in over 24 states. He appeared as a soloist at Lincoln Center’s Avery Fisher Hall, singing “Unheard Bernstein” and has hosted the Yuletide Celebration with ISO.

Bianco is currently starring Off-Broadway in “Newsical the Musical.” She originated the role of Dora in the long-running national tour of “Dora the Explorer Live,” including a sold-out run at Radio City Music Hall. She recently performed her acclaimed solo show, “Diva Moments,” in New York City at Birdland.
