New Online Concerts

The SPRING LO Virtual Edition is now on sale

We are pleased to announce that the Brown-Forman Orchestra Series Spring 2021 is now available. The LO Virtual Edition brings you this spring season of online concerts plus chamber music, interview, and bonus content. Enjoy the creative excitement of Teddy Abrams and the LO from any device, anywhere. The Fall LOVE series launched the Orchestra online with four concerts streamed live from Paristown Hall. Each concert was re-mastered and offered on-demand together with weekly additions of new videos. The Louisville Orchestra has fine-tuned the creative process to make the Spring LOVE season be just as compelling as the Fall series.  Great music, amazing guest artists, PLUS a return of our favorite Principal Pops Conductor, BOB BERNHARDT.

Unlimited access to the full Spring LOVE series is available for $75 by visiting

One-time view options (live or on-demand) are available for $20 per concert.
All dates, times, guest artists, and programming is subject to change.
