LEXINGTON, Ky.—New Maestro Scott Terrell begins conducting the Lexington Philharmonic in September, but he will first take the baton at the city’s annual patriotic concert on the steps of Transylvania’s historic Old Morrison on Friday, July 3, at 8 p.m.
The annual concert features patriotic favorites from the Lexington Philharmonic Orchestra and the Lexington Singers. The concert is free and open to the public and draws upwards of 5,000 people who set out their blankets and picnics from the steps of Old Morrison to the Carnegie Center in Gratz Park.
The concert is sponsored by PNC Bank, Keeneland and the Kentucky League of Cities.
The Young at Heart Jazz Band will perform in Gratz Park prior to the concert, beginning at 5:30 p.m., and there will be an ‘instrument petting zoo’ where children can see and play different instruments like those used by the Lexington Philharmonic.
