“The Kentucky Symphony Orchestra closes its 27th season on May 11 with the region’s first ever indoor/outdoor concert at St. Mary’s Cathedral Basilica of the Assumption” in Covington, reads an unsigned article in Monday’s (5/6) Northern Kentucky Tribune. The orchestra’s all-Vivaldi program will open inside the church “with Vivaldi’s oft-performed Gloria in D, including the KSO Chorale and VOCE chamber choir from Voices of the Commonwealth, together with soloists Laura LeVoir and Maria Miller…. Following the Gloria the audience and orchestra will move outside … for a multi-media presentation of ‘Northern Kentucky throughout The Four Seasons.’ For months the KSO has been collecting seasonal images of landscapes, locales and iconic structures from area photographers to project on the facade of the Cathedral, while members of the KSO, led by concertmaster Manami White, performs Vivaldi’s four short violin concerti collectively known as The Four Seasons…. For a grand finale, the Cathedral will be lit from within allowing those in attendance to view the church’s renowned stained glass from the outside.” The city of Covington will close nearby streets, “allowing residents to bring camp chairs to share in this once in a lifetime spectacle/performance,” explained KSO Music Director James Cassidy.”
