Swingin’ Cirque Revue

7:30 p.m. Saturday, July 11, 2020

Tower Park Amphitheater, Fort Thomas, KY

The KSO brings its socially-distanced and safe 2020 Summer Series to Fort Thomas. Join the orchestra for a fun, family-friendly, and nostalgic concert in Tower Park. The KSO and Ludlow’s Circus Mojo first teamed up in 2010 to bring high-wire acts, jugglers and high jinks to the Symphony. Ten year’s later, they are back together with the orchestra’s 10-piece swing group, The Devou-Doo Daddies, performing the high-energy 1990’s swing revival music of groups like the Squirrel Nut Zippers, Royal Crown Revue, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, and more. “Hey Pachuco” — what other symphony would combine zany high-flying acts with swing?

There is no admission charge for this concert. However, we do appreciate and encourage contributions.

Register now to receive updated concert news and be entered into a drawing to win a KSO prize package worth over $325.  We will be drawing a winner five days after each concert, and a grand prize winner will be chosen on Sept 10th.  To enter, all you have to do is register and complete that concert’s post-concert survey.
