OWENSBORO, Ky. (11/25/13) - The Owensboro Symphony Orchestra celebrated Maestro Nicholas Palmer’s 15 years with a reception in his honor on Thursday.

Under Palmer’s leadership,the OSO has developed over 20 different series for young people and adults focusing on music education. Programs include Arts Teach Kids, Sounds of the Symphony, Backstage with the Symphony, Symphony Safari, Classic Encounters, Family Concerts, and Concert Curators, according to a press release.

The OSO has been profiled in Symphony Magazine by the League of American Orchestras and also the Huffington Post. They have also been praised in the Cincinnati Post: “The Owensboro Symphony, under the direction of Nicholas Palmer, showed why they have been getting rave reviews”.

Even with so many accomplishments under his belt, Palmer is only looking forward.

“I would like to increase the education programs in the city and with the schools,” Palmer said. “I would like to continue to be a part of the community … and to do more to outreach.”
