Tower Park Amphitheater, Fort Thomas, KY

Join the Kentucky Symphony Orchestra for the finale of the 2020 Summer Series in Fort Thomas! The KSO’s 21-pc. studio orchestra with vocalists — The Boogie Band — has covered some of the most popular radio hits of the past seven decades. With 300 charts in its repertoire (adapted by arranger Terry LaBolt), the group this Labor Day weekend offers nostalgic hits for all generations attending, including chart toppers from Patsy Cline to Camila Cabello and The Beach Boys to Bruno Mars. Be ready to dance, sing along and toe-tap to music of your youth (1950s-2010s), and say —so long to Summer.(Click for press release)
