OWH REVIEW: Symphony transports crowd to harmonic heaven

In his previous guest-conductor visits, Catingub energized the Omaha Symphony and excited audiences by drawing from a deep catalogue of rock and pop arrangements. Saturday night, however, marked the premiere of Catingub’s new “Latin Pop Revolution” show tracing south-of-the-border influences on big-band jazz, 1960s and ’70s rock and the dance tunes of more recent decades.
