Rich Copley: Cirque du Soleil Makes First Appearance in Lexington

It’s time for our preview of weekend events with Rich Copley of the Lexington Herald Leader. 

Rich tells WEKU’s John Hingsbergen that, in the midst of Derby weekend, there are plenty of other entertainment events.  Among them is Cirque de Soleil, making its first visit to this part of Kentucky. Other events discussed are:  The play, Big River, in its second week at the Woodford Theatre; and the The Lexington Concert Band says farewell to longtime director Peter LaRue upon his retirement from the position.

Rich Copley is an arts reporter for the Lexington Herald Leader.  Information on the weekend’s events is available in today’s (Friday) edition.  You can also find out about arts and cultural events by visiting the events calendar on-line, at WEKU dot FM.
