Louisville Orchestra concert to be shown live on giant screen at ice-skating rink

Posted on: January 10, 2020

“For the first time in Louisville … a unique event [will combine] outdoor ice skating and a live performance by the Louisville Orchestra at Paristown Pointe,” writes Kirby Adams in Thursday’s (1/9) Louisville Courier Journal (KY). “Friday starting at 8 p.m., you can glide across the ice on the Paristown Fête de Noël rink while a live multi-camera simulcast of the Louisville Orchestra’s performance of ‘Gabriel Kahane at the LO’ takes place inside Old Forester’s Paristown Hall. The concert will be shown on the giant outdoor projection screen, situated directly over the ice rink…. The simulcast of the concert inside is free. This is the second time the Louisville Orchestra has used the enormous screen attached to the north-facing wall of the new venue run by the Kentucky Center for the Performing Arts [which is] similar to the immensely popular free outdoor simulcasts at the New World Symphony in Miami, Florida and the Soundbox simulcasts of performances by the San Francisco Symphony … ‘Bringing the Louisville Orchestra to the community in this magical ice-skating setting is a perfect example of sharing the cultural heritage of the historic Village of Paristown with the entire community,’ [said] Steve Smith, managing partner of Paristown.”
