Thomas' Final Season
Going out with a Bang!
Since 2005, Thomas Wilkins and his family have called Omaha their home and the Omaha Symphony their family. Saying farewell is never easy, but we can promise that a blockbuster season has been planned both to commemorate the end of his tenure as music director and to celebrate this wonderful orchestra’s 100th year.
Wilkins, Branford, & Copland
September 18-19, 2020
The opening concert features Thomas' good friend, Branford Marsalis, the world premiere of a new work commissioned by the Omaha Symphony in honor of our great city, and a performance of Copland’s Symphony No. 3.
Dvořák Symphony No. 8
January 15-16, 2021
In addition to Dvořák eighth symphony, André Watts will be performing Ravel’s masterpiece Piano Concerto for the Left Hand.
Tchaikovsky Symphony No. 4
October 23-24, 2020
Violinist Simone Porter will dazzle you with Prokofiev’s First Violin Concerto, while Eric Jacobsen leads the orchestra through a program featuring Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 4.
Mahler Symphony No. 8
A fitting finale for both our 100th Anniversary Season and Maestro Wilkins' tenure as our music director.
