OWH: Mom, daughter help make Christmas symphony show magical

If not for a mother and daughter, the Omaha Symphony Christmas Celebration wouldn’t have clever reindeer outfits and towering Christmas trees. Linda Runice is the costume designer for the orchestra’s annual holiday spectacular, and her oldest child, Chanda Hestwood, is the props master. They spend much of their holiday season in the wings and backstage at the Holland Center, making sure the concert runs like a well-oiled sleigh.

KVNO: Guest conductor Teddy Abrams leads the Omaha Symphony

ABRAMS: “The people that climb sheer cliffs, and don’t use ropes, like, why do they do that? I know they do it and they obviously love doing that but why, and what compels someone to get out there? A human being should not be able to play that concerto. I mean, they do, and it’s incredible.”
