LCO's Gabe Lefkowitz on telling important stories in their season finale spectacular

Last Wednesday, I sat down with Gabe Lefkowitz about the Louisville Civic Orchestra's season finale. I couldn't contain my excitement as we discussed representation in the orchestral space, a side of astrology with Gustav Holst, involving touring and local musicians alike, and "Brother Yasuke: The True Story of the Afro-Samurai." This season finale is bringing some much-needed perspective to Louisville music as well as an electrifying genre fusion. Read more about W4RP (formerly the Warp Trio) here and they're even making a Netflix series about Brother Yasuke. Read about it and a great lesson about the Afro-Samurai's actual history here.

The season finale spectacular is ONE NIGHT ONLY and completely free! THIS Wednesday, May 8 at 7pm in Bellarmine University's Cralle Theatre. Find out more about the Louisville Civic Orchestra at louisvillecivicorchestra.org
