The Owensboro Symphony Orchestra is proud to sponsor 2nd St Big Band, a 19-piece ensemble of musicians from the Owensboro and Evansville area. We’re a dance band — and we love a full dance floor! So we concentrate on classic swing music, the “standards” from the golden years of Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey. We love the songs of George Gershwin, Cole Porter and Irving Berlin. We try to imitate the sound of great singers like Frank Sinatra, Doris Day, Sarah Vaughn, and Rosemary Clooney.
In keeping with our OSO educational mission, 2nd St is committed, not only to provide quality entertainment wherever needed, but also to come alongside local schools throughout our region in providing young musicians experience with this wonderful, all-American music style.
