Ecoutez! Series Continues Oct. 8 with Heinavanker
Omaha - The 2006-07 Ecoutez! Series at the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) will continue Sunday, Oct. 8, with a performance by the Estonian vocal group Heinavanker. The concert will begin at 7:30 p.m. in the Strauss Performing Arts Center Recital Hall on the UNO campus.
“Ecoutez! is committed to bringing the highest caliber of established performers and emerging artists to the metropolitan area,” said Roger Foltz, a professor of music at UNO and coordinator of the series. The word “ecoutez” is French for “listen.” KVNO Classical 90.7 FM is the media sponsor for the series.
Heinavanker’s namesake is the winged altar piece of epoch artist Hieronymus Bosch. The rare piece of art represents a huge wagonload of hay rolling throughout the world vexed by agony and greed towards destruction. However, beautiful music sounds atop the hay load.
Gregorian chants, early polyphony and Estonian sacred folk songs form the basis of Heinavanker’s concerts. The ensemble has toured America, Finland, France, Germany, Poland and Switzerland. The group’s recordings have been played on the Estonian, Finnish, Norwegian and Swedish Broadcasting Companies.
Individual tickets are $15 for each performance. All students are admitted free of charge with the MavCard, the official ID card at UNO. Phone reservations for student tickets are recommended.
