"What happens when a fearless improviser, already a top virtuoso in the city that dominates the music world, trades his piano keyboard for a blank orchestral score?" It's the question Orpheus Chamber Orchestra is asking for their program, From Pen to Piano, this Sunday at Loeb Playhouse on the Purdue University campus.

Andre Watts entered the music scene at age 16 when Leonard Bernstein chose him to debut with the New York Philharmonic in a national broadcasted Young People's Concerts. Just two weeks later the legenary maestro asked Andre to substitute at the last minute for an ailing Glenn Gould with the Philharmonic, launching his career in storybook fashion.
