Also making a return to the Omaha airwaves will be a new season of concerts presented by the Tuesday Musical Concert Series. Tuesday Musical has been presenting the finest in concert music performances in Omaha for the past 120 years. KVNO's Chris Hopp, a formally trained classical pianist, will produce and host this program featuring live performance recordings from the Joslyn Art Museum's Witherspoon Concert Hall.
KVNO's Production Coordinator Josh Krohn will be the recording engineer for both of these programs.
KVNO's Assistant General Manager, Dana Buckingham said these two new programs, along with another great season of 13 concert broadcasts by the Omaha Symphony represent KVNO's renewed commitment to promoting local artists and musicians by providing a broader forum and stage to showcase their talents.
