This will, as always, be a very special night.”
“The musicians of the Evansville Philharmonic and I are once again thrilled to be kicking off our season at Lincoln Amphitheatre, states Music Director, Alfred Savia.” “Having lead two weeks of outdoor concerts earlier this summer in Central Indiana, I can attest to the fact that no other venue in the state comes close to the wonderful, natural acoustics of Lincoln Amphitheatre. It is the only outdoor venue where the Orchestra can play – and the audience can hear – a pure, natural, unamplified orchestral ensemble of acoustic instruments!”
