Saturday will be a historic day, as it will be the first time that the Paducah Symphony Orchestra will perform at the festival. They will take the main stage at 5:30pm under the direction of Maestro Raffaele Ponti. They will begin their performance with the star spangled banner and end with Stars and Stripes forever. Throughout their performance they will play audience favorites such as the Radetzky March, God Bless America and Star Wars, Phantom Menace. The Paducah Symphony schedules the entertainment for the festival each year but this will be the first time that the Orchestra and Choruses will be performing. The Choruses and youth orchestra are scheduled to perform on Sunday beginning at 1:15pm on the main stage.
Following the PSO and a few more acts, at 9:00pm Saturday, The 23 String Band will headline on the main stage. The 23 String Band, from Louisville, plays fun “fuel-injected” original Americana that dangerously weaves across the lanes of modern acoustic music.
