KSO Summer Series at Devou – One Date Left!

Since 1995, the Kentucky Symphony Orchestra has been holding concerts in the iconic Devou Park Bandshell. Bring your family, a blanket, and a picnic and enjoy excellent music in a picturesque venue.

Only one more concert date remains this summer, Sept. 5 at 7:30 p.m. We suggest you arrive early, however, as lawn seating is first-come, first-serve. There will be a shuttle service from Covington Catholic High School starting at 6 p.m.  The shuttle costs $1 each way. The restroom pavilion will be open and food trucks will be on hand.

The evening's concert will feature Broadway vets Pamela Myers and Jessica Hendy delivering stand out songs from Stephen Sondheim’s and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s hit musicals accompanied by the KSO. Songs from Company, Sweeney Todd, A Little Night Music, Follies, Jesus Christ Superstar, Evita, Cats, Phantom of the Opera, and more will be featured.

Admission is free, though a $5 per person donation is suggested. No registration or tickets required. More information is available at the KSO's website,
