O'boro to host music fest in 2014

Posted: Updated:

A new music festival will be coming to Owensboro.

The Owensboro Convention Center and the RiverPark Center recently came together to host the Blue Bridge Music Festival.

Middle school and high school bands and orchestras from all over will be invited to perform at the RiverPark Center.

The bands will compete against each other and will stay at the newly built Hampton Inn.

The people who will judge the competition will be music professors from colleges and music instructors at other secondary programs.

"They are staying in our hotels," says Roxi Witt, Executive Director at the RiverPark Center. "They are spending money in our community. They are eating at the convention center. They are eating at the other restaurants throughout our community. We want them to see the other arts groups."

The music festival will take place in April 2014.
