Friday After 5 may have ended its 25th anniversary season, but there will be live music in downtown Owensboro tonight. The Owensboro Symphony Orchestra returns for a second edition of its incredibly popular Symphony Walk!
This year’s walk will feature five different bands playing along the river. It’s a great way to enjoy live music and stay socially aloof and take in the fresh air of downtown Owensboro. And this tune is going to be filled with the sounds of the Owensboro Symphony Orchestra.
Here is a special invitation shared on social media by Maestro Troy Quinn!
Plus, Troy stopped by the WBKR Studios this morning to chat with us about the 2nd Annual Symphony Walk and what you can expect if you take to the banks of the Ohio River tonight. There will be several sets along the park.
Maestro Quinn and around 20 other musicians will perform at the Batwing Theater overlooking the Ohio River. From there you can walk to the RiverPark Center where you will encounter a percussion ensemble, a brass quintet and a string quartet. Once you arrive at BB&T Plaza, you can enjoy the sounds of the Symphony’s jazz trio.
The 2nd Annual Symphony Walk starts at 6 p.m. and continues until 8 a.m. and of course it’s completely FREE. The OSO created this event last year in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The idea was to give local music lovers a safe way to go out and enjoy live music. Tonight, this new tradition continues.
