The Louisville Orchestra will be performing a celebratory dedication to John Williams in honor of his 75th birthday which occurred this year. Two performances of this concert will take place. The first concert is on Thursday, September 20th, 6:30 PM at the Brown Theatre. The second performance is on Saturday, September 22nd, 7:30 PM at the Ogle Center (IUS). These two performances are part of the Brown-Forman NightLites Series.
The Brown-Forman NightLites Series explores the lighter side of classical music by bringing to life a variety of themes. The series provides an easy introduction to classical music by utilizing well known themes such as Broadway tunes, movie scores, or even something as simple as the most popular ring-tones you hear everywhere you go. Who knew some of those ring-tones had a bit of class?
