Indian Hill Orchestra and Jim Walker Take Diverse But Not Divergent Paths

Diverse musical styles, rather than periods, characterized the major portion of Sunday's (March 28) concert by the Orchestra of Indian Hill at the Littleton High School Performance Center. Works by Stravinsky, Debussy and Carl Nielsen were composed within about 30 years from the late 19th to the early 20th century.
