Horizon Bank sponsors Hoosier Star benefit concert

Horizon Bank's headquarters in Michigan City is based in downtown Michigan City.

Horizon Bank is sponsoring the 16th annual Hoosier Star concert for charity.

The Michigan City-based bank, one of the largest financial institutions headquartered in the Calumet Region, is backing the benefit concert on Sept. 11 at the LaPorte Civic Auditorium at 1001 Ridge St. in LaPorte. The unique concert gives local singers the chance to perform on the big stage with the LaPorte County Symphony Orchestra.

“Horizon Bank has been a proud sponsor of the Hoosier Star event, which is extremely popular and now in its 16th year. Hoosier Star gives many of our local singers an opportunity to display their talents while performing with a live symphony orchestra. The Symphony Orchestra does a great job of enriching the cultural lives of people of all ages in LaPorte County,” said Steve Kring, Horizon's regional president for Northwest Indiana.

Proceeds from the concert benefit the LaPorte County Symphony Orchestra, which seeks to provide cultural enrichment through classical music to the community.

“The symphony is grateful for Horizon Bank and their continued support of Hoosier Star. They partnered with us in our inaugural season and have been with us every year since. The phenomenal success and longevity of Hoosier Star is due largely in part to sponsors such as Horizon Bank,” said Tim King, executive director of LaPorte County Symphony Orchestra.

This year's Hoosier Star show will be both in person at the historic auditorium and virtual via a livestream.
