Louisville Philharmonia to Present Pops Favorites
Print this page

Some of the best summer evenings are built around concerts of great music.  Next week, the Louisville Philharmonia will deliver exactly that...for

free

!  Be sure to catch this enthusiastic young ensemble in a performance of pops classics from the stage and screen.

Led by Juilliard alumnus Daniel Spurlock (whose résumé includes former Assistant Conductor of the Louisville Orchestra), the Philharmonia held its inaugural concert in the spring of 2012.  Featuring “

a group of serious amateur and semi-professional orchestral players”, the Philharmonia was born out of a perceived need in the community for high-level orchestral playing.  The ensemble is also completely musician-led with a board of directors made up of playing members hence its being dubbed “The Musician’s Orchestra”.

Continuing its impressive upward trajectory as one of the city’s top ensembles, the Philharmonia will showcase next week pops favorites like Gershwin’s rhapsodic

American in Paris

and Lloyd Webber’s haunting

Phantom of the Opera

.  Other highlights include Leroy Anderson’s clever

Typewriter

(which actually requires a typewriter), Reinhold

Gli

è

re’s

boisterous

Russian Sailor’s Dance

and Howard Shore’s epic score from

Lord of the Rings

.

The concert is next Thursday, June

26th

at 7:30 pm at Harvey Browne Presbyterian Church (311 Browns Lane).  The concert is free and does not require tickets.  Be sure to find out more about the Louisville
