 A Chorus Line, presented by The Lexington Theater Company, Lexington Opera House, August 2-5.

Lexington’s homegrown and highly professional musical theater company follows up its first two-production summer season presentation of The Music Man with one of the most popular contemporary musicals ever. A feast of song and dance. Theater company co-founder, Lyndy Franklin Smith, was dance captain in the Broadway production.

Sheila: You were a rotten dancer.

Zach: Why do you think I became your choreographer?


The 2018 Woodland Art Fair, Presented by the Lexington Art League & The LFUCG Department of Parks and Recreation, August 18 & 19.

A curated group of over 200 artists set up shop in Woodland Park for  one of the top art fairs in the country. One of our fair town’s largest cultural events, there are also food vendors, music, and community. Rain or shine!


Chamber Music Festival of Lexington, Pam Miller Downtown Arts Center and Other Lexington Locations, August 16-26.

The festival, begun in 2007, from the start has brought world-class musicians to Lexington for end-of-summer enchantment. Moving to the Downtown Arts Center last year, the festival expanded its appeal to a wider audience and featured Lexington native Grammy winner, jazz violinist Zach Brock. This year’s festival, with Nathan Cole again as Artistic Director along with his crew of incredible musicians, builds on that, bringing back popular Ensemble-In-Residence, WindSync, and featuring Artist-In-Residence, Lexingtonian, Ben Sollee. Look for an unpcoming piece on UnderMain.
