KVNO: The Joslyn Sings with the Sounds of the Omaha Symphony

Castanets, a concerto, and a chamber orchestra walk into a museum. The Omaha Symphony’s first Joslyn concert of the season transports the audience to the Iberian Peninsula with selections from Robert Gerhard and a man known as the Spanish Mozart, Juan Crisóstomo de Arriaga. Also on the program is the “Violin Concerto No. 2” by Sergei Prokofiev, featuring Concertmaster Susanna Perry Gilmore as soloist. Gilmore says the concerto should be well suited to the smaller ensemble and intimate atmosphere at the museum.
