Kentucky Symphony Orchestra to give its latest performance

January 16, 2013 by  

‘Floodwall and Friends’ is this season’s performance by the Kentucky Symphony Orchestra and is taking place at the Notre Dame Academy this weekend. This symphony is now celebrating its 21st season of providing great jazz and classical music.

The Floodwall Jazz Quartet has been performing now for more than 13 years, so it would be no surprise if poster printing were used to connect with local music fans to let them know that the group is back in town. The Quartet is a subsidiary group of the Kentucky Symphony Orchestra and plays a mix of classical and jazz music for people of all ages to enjoy.

This welcoming ensemble calls upon orchestra members as well as friends from the area to join them for some interesting and unique hybrid sounds created by Don Sebesky, J.S. Bach, Vince Guaraldi, Chick Corea, Dave Brubeck, and Claude Bolling. The Kentucky Symphony Orchestra was created in 1992 with the aim of making classical music accessible, affordable, and attractive to people in the Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky regions. Since then, many smaller subsidiary groups have been formed and continue to share the mission with their audiences.

Tickets for this performance range from $9.50 to $35 depending on selection of seating. Floodwall and Friends will be performing on Saturday, January 19, at 8:00 pm and Sunday, January 20 at 3:00 pm at the Notre Dame Academy located at 1699 Hilton Drive in Park Hills, Kentucky, just a short drive from Florence. To purchase tickets, please visit the Notre Dame Academy website or call the box office at 859-431-6216.
