On Wednesday, March 27, at 7 p.m., The Richard G. Lugar Franciscan Center for Global Studies will host Krzysztof Urbański, music director of the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra. The lecture, entitled “Making music across cultures and nations: the vision of a young conductor,” will be held in the Marian University Theatre and is open to the public at no charge, but registration is required.
September 2012 marks the start of Krzysztof Urbański’s second season as music director of the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra. He continues as chief conductor of the Trondheim Symphony Orchestra, who also appointed him their artistic Leader in recognition of the major contribution he has already made to the orchestra. From April 2013, Urbański will take up the position of principal guest conductor of Tokyo Symphony Orchestra.
This lecture is part of the Global Studies Speaker Series presented by The Richard G. Lugar Franciscan Center for Global Studies and is co-sponsored by the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra. The center promotes the study of contemporary global issues with special attention to Marian University's core Franciscan values of dignity of the individual, peace and justice, reconciliation, and responsible stewardship. The Global Studies Speaker Series and other public events bring central Indiana's increasingly international and multi-cultural community onto the Marian University campus.
