Returning to Kentucky, the Black Jacket Symphony will perform at the Lexington Opera House this September.
The group will perform AC/DC’s ‘Back in Black’ and has appeared throughout the Southeast to sold out audiences, famous for its music, light and video presentations.
Featuring a unique experience, the Black Jacket Symphony recreates classic albums within live performances that bring first class lighting and video techniques to the show. The musicians are selected specifically for each performance based on what they bring to it musically. The entire evening is dedicated to the selected artist or group and the Black Jack Symphony performs the greatest hits of the respective stars.
The Black Jacket Symphony has dedicated show performances to famous musicians such as the Beatles, Led Zeppelin, and the Rolling Stones.
The Lexington Opera House is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is considered one of the premiere performing arts centers in the state. It was built in 1886, opening its doors in 1887 as a grand theatre. It progressed to a Vaudeville house and then a movie theatre. Once scheduled for demolition, a group of philanthropists raised money for the city to purchase the building and restore it. Today, the 19th Century charm of the building attracts over 80,000 visitors per year.
Promoting cultural performances in select venues is often handled by distributing materials throughout the region to develop interest. Poster printing is a common order with local print companies, as posters can be mounted on any flat surface in high traffic areas.
The performance will be held on Friday, September 13.
