The Owensboro Symphony is presenting the third annual Symphony Stroll from 6-8 p.m. tonight along the riverfront. The Symphony Stroll is free to the community and will feature ensembles placed throughout Smothers Park.
In addition to Troy Quinn and the Owensboro Symphony Chamber Orchestra at the Overlook Stage, attendees can hear performances from the Symphony’s Percussion Ensemble, Brass Quintet, String Quartet and Jazz Trio.
“There is no right or wrong way to enjoy this event,” said Troy Quinn, the Symphony’s Music Director. “You can linger at any stop you wish or move on to the next group.”
The music will feature a broad array of 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.
An added feature of the Stroll for this year will be an additional performance by the String Quartet at 8 p.m. on the patio of Lure Seafood & Grille, where guests can purchase food and beverages if they choose. Veterans Boulevard will be closed for attendees to relax and enjoy the music until 9 p.m.
The Stroll was created during the pandemic as a way for the community to enjoy live performances in a safe setting, and has now become an annual tradition.
“The Owensboro Symphony is very excited to offer this free community concert, and we are very appreciative for the support of Jagoe Homes,” said Gwyn Payne, Owensboro Symphony’s CEO.
