While our friends at the Joslyn Art Museum complete construction of their extraordinary new addition, we will be performing our Symphony Joslyn Series in the newly renovated Jan and John Christensen Concert Hall at the University of Nebraska Omaha’s Strauss Performing Arts Center. The Strauss Performing Arts Center (SPAC) serves as the center of musical activity for the UNO School of Music and provides a space for community engagement.
