The Louisville Orchestra has one outstanding tradition in its nearly 50-year history: its commitment to innovation, change, and expansion. Internationally known for its involvement in new music, the Louisville Orchestra should also be cited for its flexible, market-conscious programming, which was especially noticeable in the 1984-1985 season. Offerings included a formal 10-concert, double-night subscription series entitled "Whitney Series", eight "Cumberland Coffee" concerts, five "Yellow SuperPops" concerts, four "Family Series concerts, and two "New Music" concerts, all by subscription. In addition to its regular series, the orchestra provides services to the Louisville Ballet and the Kentucky Opera Association, and the reduced chamber orchestra participates in promotional events.
