‘Paint the Town’ LSO concert for the ears and eyes

LSO Executive Director Sara Mummey talks 'Paint the Town.'

LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) – Saturday is Lafayette Symphony Orchestra’s last performance of the 2013-14 season, and if you go to “Paint the Town” – both your ears and your eyes will be entertained.

That’s because visual artist Rena Brouwer will join LSO onstage as they perform two DeBussy classics, “La Mer” and “Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun.” Brouwer will use inspiration from the LSO to transform a blank canvas into a work of art.

“She will paint whatever she is moved to paint in the moment, and by the end of that 35 to 40 minutes – we’ll have a painting,” explained LSO executive director Sara Mummey.

Mummey added there will be a large-screen projection over the orchestra, so everyone can see every step of Brouwer’s creative process.

“Paint the Town” is 7:30 p.m. Saturday at the Long Center for the Performing Arts at 111 N. Sixth St. in Lafayette. Tickets can be purchased through the LSO website or the box office.
