Who Spiked the Symphony?

7:30 p.m. Sunday, August 8, 2021

Recorded Live from Tower Park Amphitheater, Fort Thomas, KY

In the 1940s and 50s, percussionist Spike Jones and his City Slickers were heard on the radio, recordings, on tour, and eventually via their own television show. The cast were all great musicians and zany comics. No music escaped their parodies — pop, jazz, country and classical music. New Orleans percussionist/entertainer, Carl Mack plays Spikes’ original tuned cowbells, car horns, and kooky instruments, as KSO musicians and performers mock opera, historical figures, sporting events and songs with wacky antics.

There is no fee to access this concert. Contributions are greatly appreciated. Your generosity helps keep the music playing!
