As part of the Indianapolis Symphonic Choir's annual "Sacred Masterworks" performance series, this melding of vibrant voices and delicately vibrating strings will pay tribute to one of J.S. Bach's greatest achievements. Mezzo-soprano Jennifer Lane, tenor Brian Stucki, and bass-baritone Derrick Parker will combine throaty forces to ring out Bach's epic mass, which has been likened to other famous artists' opuses including Michelangelo's fresco at the Sistine Chapel and da Vinci's Mona Lisa. The symphony orchestra's mix of harmonious winds, quivering strings, and rhythmically tapped percussion instruments will serve as a sonorous backdrop to resonant vocals as they herald the iconic work to waiting audience eardrums in a 2-hour show with a 20-minute intermission.

Beef and Boards Dinner Theatre—soon to kick off their 40th season—serve up a sumptuous buffet before each performance to infuse audiences with enough energy for aisle-rolling. Specializing in classic farces, Broadway musicals, and the occasional spot of children’s theater, the troupe has carried out rollicking performances of Hello Dolly, Annie Get Your Gun, Legally Blonde, and Winnie the Pooh. Every year at yuletide the performers roll out their Christmas special, and every Arbor Day features an all-tree performance of Grease.
The story of Mallow Run Winery reads like a Steinbeck novel with a happy ending—a tale of romance, music, and farm life. John Richardson grew up on the 600-acre plot where Mallow Run now resides, but left for 35 years to become a teacher. During this time, he raised his son, Bill, whose dream of following the pastoral path of his ancestors led him to pursue a degree in Agriculture at Purdue University. After he graduated and his father retired, they both returned to John’s stomping ground with the intent of growing grapes for various Indiana wineries. Bill would meet his wife, Laura, while playing music locally in the Carmel Symphony—the former on French horn and the latter on clarinet—and thus, the triumvirate behind Mallow Run Winery was born.
Between the bushels of corn and soybeans that spring from the verdant fields, eight acres of grapevines produce the plump fruit that goes into bottles of Chardonel, Traminette, Seyval Blanc, and other varietals, and the tailpipes of any double-parked cars on the estate. The winery has become a destination to listen to live music in addition to sipping wine with friends and family, as the winery’s spacious lawn is often used for concerts from local artists.
