Did you know that…

• all but eight musicians travel from out of town for the opportunity to perform on a part time basis with Orchestra Kentucky?

• all the musicians hold a Bachelor’s Degree, 50% a Master’s Degree and several hold Doctorates?

• for a Variety Series concert there are 70 musicians with a combined talent of 2,450 years and a Retro Series concert has 60 musicians with 2,100 years of combined talent?

• the musicians own their instruments and costs vary from $4,000 to as much as $100,000; bows alone for string instruments can cost as much as $25,000?
