The Owensboro Symphony will return to the concert hall after more than 18 months away with their Home for the Holidays concert at 7 p.m. Saturday at the RiverPark Center. The holiday program will feature traditional favorites and fresh new works, including selections from The Nutcracker, Scrooge, White Christmas and The Polar Express.

“We are thrilled to be back on stage,” said CEO Gwyn Payne. “This will be the first concert of our 2021-2022 season and it will be a wonderful start to a phenomenal season.”

The audience can also enjoy performances by the Owensboro Symphony Youth Orchestra and the Owensboro Symphony Chorus throughout the concert. 

Music Director Troy Quinn will welcome vocalist Tevin Vincent singing Mary Did You Know? and You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch. Vincent is a graduate of Kentucky Wesleyan College and is currently pursuing a masters of music degree in vocal performance at the University of Kentucky.  

“We have programmed an evening of Holiday music that will thrill audience members of every age,” Quinn said. “This is one of the region’s favorite holiday family events and I cannot wait to see everyone there.”

The Owensboro Symphony will follow the RiverPark Center’s COVID-19 guidelines which include presenting a ticket before entering the building and wearing a face covering until seated.

Seats are by visiting OwensboroSymphony.org or by calling 270-684-0661. Ticket prices before box office fees start at $12.50 for students and $42.50 for adults.
