Mayor Announces Free Summer Chamber Music Concerts

Tuesday June 26, 2007

Performances part of Mayor's SummerScene Program

A string quartet at the Bon Air Regional Library. A woodwind trio at Cane Run Community School. A swing combo at the Portland Community Center.

Those are some of the eight performances scheduled next month for the 2007 Summer Concert Series, sponsored by the Louisville Orchestra and Metro Parks. The concerts are free and open to the public, as part of the Mayor's SummerScene program.

“This brings chamber music directly to the neighborhoods,” Mayor Jerry Abramson said. “Whether it’s a violinist or a trumpet player, these concerts introduce children and adults to the wonderful sounds of classical music.”

The concerts among hundreds of community programs being offered this summer by Metro Parks. Other events include performances by the River City Drum Corp and appearances by Zippo the Clown.
