IUS Horizon

JEFFERSONVILLE—IU Southeast ended its 70th year anniversary celebration on May 18 at Warder Park with a concert consisting of the IUS Orchestra, Concert Band, Concert Choir and Community Chorus and the Commonwealth Brass Band.

There was also a special performance featuring Aaron Lundy, IUS vocal instructor, who sang tenor during a performance of “Nessun Dorma.”

Chancellor Sandra Patterson-Randles said the concert was a part of Jeffersonville’s Concerts in the Park Series.

“[Jeffersonville] very nicely let us have this date,” Patterson-Randles said. “IUS began at Warder Park. It’s a special thing to finish off [our celebration] where we sat our roots down.”

IUS alumni served cake provided by Adrienne and Co. Bakery Café, and there was also a six-tier cake decorated in an IU Southeast theme, complete with two books and a grenadier holding an IU Southeast 70th Anniversary flag on top.

The performance ended with a performance of Pyotr Ilich Tchaikovsky’s “1812 Overture,” performed by more than 150 musicians from IU Southeast and the community.
