What a Season We Have Planned for You!

The 2017-2018 season will delight you, make you think, make you feel, make you smile, and make you glad you are a part of it all.

This season is filled with monumental works from the greatest symphonic names in music, including Brahms, Tchaikovsky, Mendelssohn, and Mozart. Experience the thrill of a performance by internationally acclaimed violinist Rachel Barton Pine. You will hear a special tribute performance to the incomparable film composer John Williams as the Symphony performs some of  the most recognizable music in cinematic history.  Watch in awe as the exploration of our solar system is brought to life in vivid form while the orchestra accompanies with music from Star Wars, Star Trek, and The Planets. And most importantly, you will see showcased my incredible colleagues that make up your Owensboro Symphony…all season long!

It is an honor to have been chosen as your new Music Director! I could not be happier to begin this next chapter in the Owensboro Symphony’s history. Please join me for this exciting season.
