The INDIGO GIRLS Perform with the Symphony Orchestra at the Van Wezel Tonight

Twenty years after they began releasing records as the Indigo Girls, Amy Ray and Emily Saliers have refused to slow down and have been producing some of their best music yet! The duo will be performing with Symphony Orchestra at the Van Wezel tonight, March 27.

After signing to Epic Records in 1988, the Indigo Girls released their first album for which they received thunderous praise, double platinum status, received a Grammy nomination for "Best New Artist" and won "Best Contemporary Folk Recording." They seemingly skyrocketed as folk icons overnight, and through the years have continued to live up to the high standards that they set for themselves. Balancing their successful music career by supporting numerous social causes-- the Indigo Girls don't just talk the talk; they walk the walk.

Nine albums later, the Indigo Girls have gone back to their roots of self-producing and have blazed four new albums with their rekindled fire: Poseidon and the Bitter Bug, Holly Happy Days, Staring Down the Brilliant Dream, and Beauty Queen Sister. Their new material is a beautifully mastered collection that they feel is a product of their "heart ruling the performance, not their heads."

The performance of the legendary duo with their voices blending in perfect harmony to a back drop of a symphony orchestra is a match made in heaven; you won't want to miss this emotionally charged performance.

Tickets are priced from $45-$75. For more information, call the Box Office at 941-953-3368 or visit www.VanWezel.org
