The Owensboro Symphony will perform its “Cinematic Romance” concert this Saturday, featuring music from works including Gone with the Wind, Casablanca, Vertigo, and Romeo and Juliet. The Symphony will be joined by world-renowned violinist Sandy Cameron. 

The concert begins at 7 p.m. at the RiverPark Center.  

“This is going to be an incredible evening full of some of the most memorable and romantic moments in cinema,” said Gwyn Payne, Owensboro Symphony CEO.

Since her debut at the age of 12 in Eindhoven, the Netherlands, Cameron has performed extensively as a soloist throughout the world. 

“You will not want to miss her performance of Danny Elfman’s Edward Scissorhands Suite. It will be electric; she is a joy to watch and it will be an unforgettable performance,” said Symphony music director Troy Quinn.

The second half of the program will feature Leonard Bernstein’s well-known Symphonic Dances from West Side Story. Two of the most popular favorites of the musical’s songs are included in this work, including Somewhere and Maria.

Concert attendees are encouraged to join Quinn in Cannon Hall from 6:15-6:40 p.m. for a special pre-concert conversation. This program, designed to enhance the concert experience, will provide insights into the music and music-makers performing on the program.

Tickets start at $44 and are available online here, by phone at 270-684-0661, or at the RiverPark Center Box Office at 101 Daviess Street, Owensboro.
