EKU Center Opens by Invite Only

The first performance is staged tonight inside the new performing arts center at Eastern Kentucky University.  The invitation-only event features the Owensboro Symphony Orchestra and the American Spiritual Ensemble. Center Director Debra Hoskins says ticket sales for their inaugural season are progressing well.

“I would say three-quarters of our box seating is already been sold for the year.  We have orchestra right down front. We have pit seats. We have a back section of the orchestra that is lifted and elevated.  And then we have a grand tier one and a grand tier two,” said Hoskins.

The EKU Performing Arts Center opens to the public on September 24 with country music artist Wynonna Judd.
