The Louisville Orchestra Presents Brass Transit The Musical Legacy Of Chicago

On Saturday, November 10 at 8PM, Principal Pops Conductor, Bob Bernhardt and YOUR Louisville Orchestra welcome Brass Transit to The Kentucky Center to relive the 70s and 80s with the horn-laden music of the legendary band, Chicago. Eight of Canada’s most talented and accomplished musicians will bring you back to the most memorable time of your life with some of the American rock band’s biggest hits such as “25 or 6 to 4,” “Saturday In the Park,” and “If You Leave Me Now.”

Individual tickets range from $85 – $27 and are available by calling 502.584.7777 or by visiting LouisvilleOrchestra.org.

Brass Transit goes far beyond just imitating the songs; they embody the music. They recently produced their first self-titled album, taking songs by other top artists from the seventies and recording them with horns in the CHICAGO style. The result is a fresh approach to some of the greatest hits of the era. They also recently scored their show for full symphony orchestra with original arrangements that are truly spellbinding. They have left crowds in awe and on their feet, evoking comments like “Spine-tingling,” “Brought me back to my youth,” and “Perfect in every detail.”

Principal Pops Conductor Bob Bernhardt continues to bring his unique combination of easy style, infectious enthusiasm and wonderful musicianship to the city and orchestra he loves. He’s been a constant presence with the Louisville Orchestra for the past 37 years; as Assistant and Associate Conductor, Principal Guest Conductor with Kentucky Opera, and now for 22 years as the LO’s Principal Pops Conductor. Bernhardt is concurrently Principal Pops Conductor of the Grand Rapids Symphony in Michigan, and Principal Pops Conductor and Music Director Emeritus of the Chattanooga Symphony and Opera, where he previously spent 19 seasons as Music Director and is now in his 27th year with the company. He is also an Artist-in-Residence at Lee University in Cleveland, TN.
