Music department releases 'My Old Kentucky Home' to celebrate Kentucky Derby week

April 30, 2019

In celebration of Kentucky Derby week, Bellarmine University’s music department has released a new arrangement of “My Old Kentucky Home,” performed by the Bellarmine Schola.
The music video, recorded at Sun Valley Farm in Versailles, Kentucky, features an arrangement by Dr. S. Timothy Glasscock, chair of the music department.
"Sun Valley Farm is one of the most beautiful locations you could ask for to film a Derby video," Glasscock said. "The Butzers were so kind to bring us in and let us interact with their beautiful thoroughbreds and film in the yard of the beautiful Samuel Pepper homestead. We had a great time, and it was the perfect place to premiere my new arrangement of 'My Old Kentucky Home!'"
Sun Valley Farm is owned by Barry and Jan Butzer.
This is the third year that the music department has released a recording of the Commonwealth of Kentucky's official song during Derby week. See the previous versions below.
