Bauman will take his final bow with LaPorte County Symphony at May 5 concert

LaPorte County Symphony Orchestra is proud to present Maestro Philip J. Bauman’s “From Hollywood to Broadway” on May 5 at the LaPorte Civic Auditorium.

The concert begins at 7:30 p.m. Audience members are invited to enter at 6:30 p.m. to enjoy a slideshow commemorating Bauman’s tenure with the orchestra over the past two decades.

After 23 years behind the LCSO podium, Bauman will wow the audience one final time in this pops concert packed with award-winning and familiar favorites from the screen and stage. Selections will include tunes from movies such as “Avatar” and Harry Potter” and from Broadway musicals including “Hamilton,” “Mama Mia” and “A Tribute to Richard Rodgers.”

The concert will include a guest performance by pianist and local favorite Andrew Tallackson, of The Beacher and Young People’s Theatre, for a moving selection from the recent Hollywood hit, “La La Land.” A little known scene from Indiana’s own Hollywood film, “Hoosiers,” will play during the orchestra’s performance featuring local actor Robert Swan.

Also, LCSO is proud to bring back Rick DeJonge, composer of “Ho Ho Ho” from the LaPorte Healthcare Foundation’s 2016 Holiday at the Pops concert. He’ll join the orchestra as guest conductor for a premier of his “Tribute to Silent Films,” a multimedia piece specially adapted for LCSO.
