RELEASE: Emmy nominee Frankie Moreno returns to Omaha for an evening of pop and rock hits
Emblematic of the Vegas Strip, Resident Conductor Ernest Richardson and Frankie Moreno lead the Omaha Symphony in hits from Chuck Berry, The Beatles, Frank Sinatra, and Elvis Presley.
OMAHA, Neb., May 6, 2022— You do not need to travel all the way to Las Vegas to experience the dazzling vocal stylings of chart-topping singer, songwriter, and arranger Frankie Moreno. Joined by his band and your very own Omaha Symphony, Frankie takes the stage to perform unforgettable hits from Chuck Berry, The Beatles, Frank Sinatra, and Elvis Presley under the direction of Omaha’s own, Ernest Richardson.
In speaking about his five-time title of “Headliner of the Year,” Frankie says, “The first time we won, I couldn’t believe it, I thought it was a mistake. Then, we won again, and again. It’s pretty surreal when I see who we’re up against. I mean, these are the artists I look up to. The ones who inspire me. I’ve been very fortunate to become friends with most of them, and it’s always strange when I see my name next to theirs.” With nominees such as Jennifer Lopez, Reba McEntire, Celine Dion, Britney Spears, Cher, Garth Brooks, and Elton John vying for the same award, it’s no surprise that Frankie is consistently breaking records and thrilling audiences.
Performances will be presented on Saturday, May 7 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, May 8 at 2 p.m. at the Holland Performing Arts Center Peter Kiewit Concert Hall. Tickets are on sale now at omahasymphony.org.

As a child prodigy on the piano and a gifted multi-instrumentalist, Frankie was first introduced to American audiences at the age of 10 on CBS’s Star Search. His performance on ABC’s Dancing with the Stars brought him into America’s living rooms again performing his self-penned hit “Tangerine Honey”. He has continued to perform sold-out concerts including Carnegie Hall, The Kennedy Center, The Hollywood Bowl, and Vegas residencies.
Frankie’s collaboration with world-renowned violinist Joshua Bell, At Home With Friends, reached the No. 1 spot on Billboard. The album included Sting, Josh Groban, Chris Botti, Kristin Chenoweth, and Regina Spektor. Frankie and Josh have since released Musical Gifts, which reached No. 8 on Billboard and featured Placido Domingo, Gloria Estefan, Allison Krauss, and Chick Corea.
Frankie toured the U.S. with Sugarland and Billy Currington. He joined multi-platinum artists Air Supply for their world tour as musical director and wrote their radio single “Dance with Me” which reached No. 7 on Billboard’s Top 40. He has performed his original works for his symphony concerts with the nation’s premier orchestras.
Frankie Moreno commands audiences around the world with his highly contagious music and playful stage antics. His songs are cleverly crafted, and his musicianship is virtuoso. Frankie is an all-around talent who puts his heart and soul into his music. He is unquestionably a unique artist.
