LOUISVILLE (WHAS11) — The Louisville Orchestra’s Conductor Teddy Abrams will be performing a live music tribute to Muhammad Ali at 2:30 p.m. at the Ali Center on the Muhammad Ali Plaza.
Mourners will be able to pay their respects at the Ali Center until 5 p.m. Sunday. The Center will also be open throughout the week, including Monday, to allow the public to celebrate the life and legacy of its co-founder, Muhammad Ali.
Donald Lassere, President and CEO for the Ali Center, said, “Muhammad’s circle of life began in his hometown of Louisville, Ky, and continues at the Ali Center just a few blocks from where he grew up.” We are proud—as the stewards of The Champ’s unbelievable place in history—to move our mission forward with respect and honor.”
A $5 donation is recommended, but not necessary, to enter the Center’s 2-1/2 levels of exhibits. The Ali’s have requested that, in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the Muhammad Ali Center through the website, in order continue to preserve and share the legacy of Muhammad Ali.
