The Owensboro Symphony will make history “come alive” as music and art meet with their Night at the Museum concert Saturday. The audience will be taken on a tour with music from Indiana Jones, The Mummy, and the Night at the Museum film that inspired the theme of the concert.
The concert will begin at 7 p.m. at the RiverPark Center.
“This will be a fun evening for the whole family,” said Owensboro Symphony CEO, Gwyn Payne.
The concert will also include a performance of Modest Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition, which was inspired by an exhibition of the artwork by Viktor Hartmann, a friend of Mussorgsky.
“This orchestral masterpiece evokes vivid images of the paintings and ranges from lively dances to hauntingly beautiful movements. I’m looking forward to this performance and taking the audience on a fantastic journey. This concert is going to be a lot of fun,” said Music Director Troy Quinn.
Concert attendees are encouraged to join Troy Quinn in Cannon Hall from 6:15-6:40 p.m. for a special behind-the-music pre-concert conversation about the performance. This program, designed to enhance the concert experience, will provide insights into the music and music-makers performing on the program.
Tickets start at $50 and are available by phone at 270-684-0661 or at the RiverPark Center Box Office at 101 Daviess Street. Student tickets are $16 each.
