The story of Louisville is intertwined with the birth of the Louisville Orchestra and its landmark commissioning program. The imagination of Mayor Charles Farnsley, a group of dedicated musicians and a conductor, and a healthy grant from the Rockefeller Foundation provided the groundwork for The Commissioning Project. Film producer Owsley Brown III has turned this piece of history into a new documentary called Music Makes a City: A Louisville Orchestra Story. You will have a chance to see the film here in Louisville starting May 20th. To find out how, visit the Louisville Orchestra’s page. You can also see the trailer here. KET will offer a preview during Louisville Life.
