OWH: Boys Town Choir, set to perform before symphony show, gets advice from Broadway veterans

It was billed as a master class on music. Members of the Boys Town Voices sang side-by-side Tuesday with seven Broadway performers in the Music Hall on campus. The professional singers, in town for the Omaha Symphony Christmas Celebration, joined the 41-member choir on “O Holy Night,” offering an audio-visual tutorial on expression and breath control and sharing a few thoughts about the song. After that, in a revealing question-and-answer session, it morphed into a master class on life.

OWH REVIEW: Many favorites among songs at Omaha Symphony Christmas Celebration

Only a Scrooge could resist young violinists — some barely beyond their toddler years — playing a Christmas tune with precision and panache. Or a Rockettes-style kick line featuring a lot of Santas. Or a fluffy pup named Rudolph, the Claus family’s best friend. And Saturday night, when the Omaha Symphony Christmas Celebration featured all these things, there wasn’t a Scrooge in the house.

OWH REVIEW: Omaha Symphony thrills on 'Fantastique' voyage to the edge of madness

The Omaha Symphony served up a musical feast Friday night. The main course, which occupied the second half of the program, was Hector Berlioz’s “Symphonie Fantastique,” a meal in itself. Epic, radical and inspired at the time of its composition, it is no less thrilling today, and the Omaha Symphony gave a remarkable reading of this almost hourlong piece.

KVNO: Interview with Steven White on Symphonie Fantastique

KVNO's Melissa Dundis interviews Maestro Steven White on conducting the Omaha Symphony in Symphonie Fantastique: “I think that the great thing about great music, the great thing about great art, is that you can analyze it to death and it holds great interest to analyze and wonderful to think about.
