Voices of Elmwood is back for a twelfth season here in Owensboro.  And here's a look at this year's schedule of events and performances.

The twelfth-annual Voices of Elmwood will be held at Elmwood Cemetery, beginning the evening of September 19, 2019 and will run for a total of nine evenings in September and October. Voices of Elmwood is a celebration of history, designed to honor our region’s heritage and is sponsored by Dahl and Groezinger, Inc.
Founded by the Owensboro Museum of Science and History, in collaboration with the Daviess County Public Library, Voices of Elmwood 2019 will offer ten new stories of people from our community. Carolyn Greer will be directing the series, with local actors in period costumes presenting the story of the person they are portraying. Wagon rides will leave every thirty minutes each evening and stop for each actor’s presentation.
Performances begin at 6:00 p.m. each evening, with the last wagon leaving at 9:00 p.m. each night. Tent shows, perfect for large church groups, supper clubs, tour buses or patrons preferring not to ride in the wagons, will be offered on October 3rd, 4th and 5th and will begin at 6:00 p.m.
