The Lexington Philharmonic
In 1961, the University of Kentucky's Department of Agriculture needed background music for a film it was producing. Roughly 65 musicians volunteered, including students and faculty from surrounding universities. Fast-forward four years and this motley crew became The Lexington Philharmonic. Central Kentucky's largest arts organization, LexPhil has since performed more than 100 concerts annually, bringing orchestral music into schools and concert venues alike to inspire citizens and bring music to the masses.
