Marches Madness

(Marches from classic, opera, ballet & film)

7:30 p.m. Sunday, July 10, 2022

Tower Park Amphitheater, Fort Thomas, KY

Admission is free, contributions encouraged.  Register for Concert Updates!

The KSO surveys universally known marches from the classics and cinema in its festive summer 2022 opener.   Music associated with circus, weddings, graduation, opera, ballet, bands and symphonies comprise the concert’s first half, whereas award-winning marched from 20th century film scores close out an evening of pomp and pageantry (see evenings program below). Marches as a musical form have been around for centuries.  We’re sure you’ll know the majority of marches on tap when you hear them.

There is no admission charge for this concert. However, we encourage and appreciate contributions of $5 per person. Your generosity keeps the music playing!
