Omaha, NE – The Omaha Symphony kicks off its new Masterworks season with a bang, a concert featuring Tchaikovsky’s “Symphony No. 4” conducted by Music Director Thomas Wilkins.
The Omaha Symphony opens its 2014-2015 season Sunday at the Joslyn Art Museum with a program so varied it’s right there in the concert’s title.
Orchestras are bringing live art to museums- where the art is usually found on the walls.
Acclaimed pianist André Watts joins the orchestra for a performance of Beethoven’s fifth and final piano concerto, a work grand enough that it earned its most magisterial nickname: the Emperor.
The Omaha Symphony concludes its season with a an epic program featuring not one but two large-scale, heroic masterpieces.
It’s a weekend packed with flowing melodies and violent emotions.
A few years ago, The New Yorker's classical music critic Alex Ross called German composer Felix Mendelssohn “the most amazing child prodigy in musical history,” and then detailed why Mendelssohn, and not the most famous child prodigy in musical history, Mozart, deserved the title.
If it ain’t baroque…then it won’t appear on this weekend’s Omaha Symphony concert!
Omaha Symphony Music Director Thomas Wilkins has been named the Governor’s Arts Awards Outstanding Artist of the Year.
