The Owensboro Symphony is presenting the second annual Symphony Stroll this Friday along the riverfront. The event was created last year as a way for the community to safely enjoy live performances during the pandemic, and event officials are excited for its return.
“Symphony Stroll was such a success last year,” said Gwyn Payne, Owensboro Symphony’s CEO. “We are thrilled to offer this free event again, creating a new tradition in our community.”
From 6-8 p.m., the community are invited to stroll along the riverfront and enjoy the sounds of the Owensboro Symphony.
Ensembles will be placed throughout Smothers Park, beginning with Troy Quinn and the Symphony Chamber Orchestra at the Overlook Stage and reaching all the way to BB&T Plaza where a jazz trio will perform.
“There is no right or wrong way to enjoy this event,” said Troy Quinn, the Symphony’s Music Director. “Ensembles will play throughout the evening and you can start at any stop and linger where you choose.”
Throughout the park, attendees can hear performances from the Owensboro Symphony’s Percussion Ensemble, Brass Quintet, and String Quartet. The music will feature a broad array of musical selections and styles, from Broadway to Jazz to Orchestral selections.
Each stop on the Symphony Stroll will have signage with a QR code allowing attendees to view the event program.
Symphony Stroll is held within “The District,” which allows patrons at participating businesses to leave the premises with an alcoholic beverage in a specially marked cup. For a map of The District showing participating businesses, visit thedistrict.owensboro.org.
Concessions will also be available throughout the park.
The Symphony Stroll is free to the community thanks to the support of Wyatt, Tarrant and Combs, LLC and SoutherStar Central Gas Pipeline.
