Louisville Orchestra set for fifth Corydon concert

The Louisville Orchestra will perform its fifth concert in the Corydon Central High School auditorium on Sunday, April 22, at 3 p.m. A pre-concert luncheon will be held at the Leora Brown School at 1 p.m.
Tickets for the concert are $15 for adults and $10 for students, and the luncheon is $10.
Tickets can be purchased in Corydon at the Blaine H. Wiseman Visitor Center, Butt Drugs, Chase Bank (downtown), Regions Bank, First Harrison Bank and the Harrison County Public Library.
In September, the Brown School applied to the Kentucky Derby Festival for its consideration of the concert to be an official Kentucky Derby Festival event. Maxine Brown said that because Derby Festival staff were unfamiliar with Harrison County and the event, a member of the Kentucky Derby Festival board will attend and observe the event for a recommendation about the possible inclusion of the concert in 2008.
The concert will be conducted by acting associate conductor Stuart Chafetz, who is known for his innovative and exciting classical, pops and family concerts. Chafetz is currently music director and conductor of the Maui (Hawaii) Pops Orchestra. A graduate of the Eastman School of Music and the University of Cincinnati-College Conservatory, Chafetz is a powerful advocate for the musical education of young people, Brown said.
The 2006 Young Artist Competition award winner, 10-year-old Anne Richardson, will perform ‘Allegro Appassionato for Cello, op. 43.’ The fourth grader attends Louisville Collegiate School and has been playing the cello for 4-1/2 years. She is a member of the Louisville Youth Orchestra Symphony.
