Event Description

Click here for the full concert program


Our “In Harmony” tour concerts of 2023 are a celebration of Kentucky and Americana, the traditional and the new, the spirited and the serene. The Louisville Orchestra — under the baton of Teddy Abrams — brings an exciting program of orchestral favorites and thrilling new works to residents all over the Commonwealth of Kentucky. Bernstein kicks it off with his hugely popular Overture to Candide, Rossini gives us a bit of “Hi Ho Silver” in his William Tell Overture, and Tchaikovsky wraps up the program with his rousing 1812 Overture. Experience contemporary pieces by two composers of the LO’s Creators Corps: Kentucky native Tyler Taylor debuts new composition In Memory’s Safe — featuring fellow Creators Corps composer Lisa Bielawa as vocal soloist – alongside TJ Cole’s original work Megalopolis. Then, sing along with an arrangement of Blue Moon of Kentucky, and revel in the jazz themes of Gershwin’s iconic Rhapsody in Blue, performed by Teddy Abrams conducting from the piano.
