Karen Porter, Executive Director of the Owensboro Symphony Orchestra visited the WBKR Waking Crew and told us about the 2013-2014 Season which opens September 21 with world-class trumpeter Allen Vizzutti. Karen says if you are a new subscriber you can get tickets at 50% off. She also told me about a very funny video with Maestro Nicholas Palmer.

 

It's a riot. Watch it and then call (270)684-0661 to order tickets.
