UofL will present a ‘Celebration of the Arts’ performance in Paducah


    LOUISVILLE, Ky. –Paducah’s Luther F. Carson Four Rivers Center will be filled with the sounds of music, theater, prose and poetry Sept. 26 as University of Louisville President James Ramsey hosts a special performance as part of the university’s outreach tour.

    More than 200 students from UofL’s School of Music and College of Arts and Sciences will perform a “Celebration of the Arts” from 7-9 p.m. at the center, 100 Kentucky Avenue. The event is free and open to the public.

    The event will feature short performances by students with the Cardinal Singers, Collegiate Chorale, University Symphony Orchestra, African American Theatre Program, Department of Theatre Arts, Jazz Studies, Creative Writing Program and University Wind Ensemble.

    The program is part of Ramsey’s annual Presidential Outreach Tour. Each fall, the public is invited to join Ramsey, current students, faculty, staff and alumni at events and receptions held throughout the Commonwealth.

    “This is a way of thanking Paducah area residents and alumni for their support of UofL while showcasing our talented students,” Ramsey said.

    Ramsey will preside at the event which honors UofL’s connections to Paducah and Western Kentucky. Nearly 700 alumni live in the area and 320 current students are from the region.

    Earlier in the day, Ramsey will make stops to visit with students from Heath, Paducah Tilghman and Reidland high schools.
