FRANKFORT, Ky. (Nov. 22, 2017) — Newport-based Kentucky Symphony Orchestra has been selected as the Kentucky Arts Council’s Featured Artist for November and December.

The ensemble, begun in 1992 as the Northern Kentucky Symphony Orchestra, is a member of the arts council’s Performing Artists Directory.
