The KSO Presents, "And The Band Played On" - Cincinnati Event

August 08, 2020 - Fort Thomas

900 S Ft Thomas Ave
Fort Thomas, KY 41075

The strings take the night off as the KSO presents an old-fashioned band concert with a couple surprises.


Event Description: A hundred years ago, towns used to gather in the summer to hear their own local or national touring concert band perform at the bandshell or gazebo. Most wind, brass and percussion players of today’s symphony orchestras started their careers in middle and high-school band programs, playing the warhorse works penned in the early to mid 20th century. The KSO’s wind ensemble re-creates this nostalgic setting and sound, with cornet soloist Michael Mergen from the “President’s Own” Marine Corps Band. Bring blankets or lawn chairs! Food trucks and concessions will be available.


COVID-19 UPDATE: Increased safety measures have been implemented to protect the well-being of our community. Social distancing and masks are strongly encouraged. Read more at: https://kyso.org/event/re-opening/
