UK Symphony Orchestra visits Maysville

The Washington Opera House Theatre keeps cranking out incredible performances!

Friday, I enjoyed a great seat while the UK Symphony Orchestra performed in downtown Maysville.  I enjoy classical music in my studio, but nothing compares to hearing/seeing 20+ musicians performing together on stage.   

The concert was directed by John Nardolillo, included operatic performances by Maysville native, Catherine Clarke Nardolillo.   Followed by UK Opera’s Ellen Graham, and Metropolitan Opera star, Cynthia Lawrence.

The second half of the concert was a performance of Stravinsky’s “The Rite of Spring”.  The musical performance had me on the edge of my seat.  It was an explosion of instruments, complete with many strings, horns and drums.

If you missed the concert, you missed a great performance.  You also missed the announcement of my upcoming art project, a series of banners that will be unveiled May 7th during Maysville’s Art Walk, as part of Maysville’s Cultural Arts District.
