The Orchestra is riding high this fall and kicks off a new series with a fling this Friday and Saturday.
On Friday, October 17 at 6:30pm
at the Brown Theatre and Saturday, October 18 at 7:30pm at Ogle Center,
The Louisville Orchestra will present the first of the NightLites
concerts, String Fling, led by Principal Pops Conductor, Bob Bernhardt.
The evening will include Edvard Grieg's Holberg Suite, Piotr Ilych
Tchaikovsky's Serenade for Strings in C Major, Karl Jenkins' "Diamond
Music" from Palladio and Astor Piazzolla's The Four Seasons of Buenos
Aires with guest soloist Benny Kim on violin. The evening will end with
Ralph Vaughan Williams' Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis.
Garnering acclaim from audiences and critics alike, Benny Kim has
performed on five continents in nearly 20 countries. As the Washington
Post observed, "Kim's emotional depth and musical carriage are his real
drawing cards. His is a style that touches the peak of romantic violin
playing." His spectacular performances of the Sibelius Violin Concerto
with the Utah Symphony, conducted by Keith Lockhart, resulted in the
Salt Lake City Tribune review, "Kim's titanium technique was only
surpassed by his and his violin's exquisite, pearly colorations."
