Our 2013-2014 Season; “Experience the OSO” has been filled with exciting music and outstanding guest artists.  We opened with world-class trumpeter Allen Vizzutti and continued with Puccini’s “La Boheme”, with the Kentucky Opera and our outstanding OSO musicians! Throughout the season you have experienced a great mix of outstanding masterworks that include Hanson’s Symphony No.2 “Romantic”, Dvorak’s “New World Symphony”,  Ravel-La Valse and Debussy-La Mer.  In February, featured the world premiere of a new work “Two Brothers” by Jim Stephenson about brothers fighting on opposing sides during the Civil War and a the Pops concert with Jeans and Classics Motown in the new Owensboro Convention Center was unforgettable!  On April 12 we will finish our season with Owensboro’s own treasure, Aaron Kizer. Please join the excitement as we unveil our 2014-2015 season that night as well!
