UNO Heartland Philharmonic Orchestra to Present Scheherazade on Dec. 2
Omaha - The University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) Heartland Philharmonic Orchestra will perform a concert of "magic" on Sunday, Dec. 2, at 7:30 p.m. in the Strauss Performing Arts Center Recital Hall. Tickets will be available for purchase at the door.
The featured piece on the program is Rimsky-Korsakov's Scheherazade.
"The work, a vivid orchestral depiction of 1001 Arabian Nights, is a tour de force for orchestra allowing our UNO student artists in the orchestra to showcase their talents," said Kimberly Ahrenholtz-Mettenbrink, events coordinator/building manager at the Strauss Performaing Arts Center.
Also included on the program is Mozart's Overture to The Magic Flute. Two UNO student concert-aria competition winners will appear with the orchestra. Kristin Simpson will perform violin with Bloch's Baal Shem and Cantor Gastón Bogomolni will sing Donizetti's aria "Una furtiva lagrima."
"Attending Heartland Philharmonic Orchestra concerts are a great way to hear orchestral masterworks performed by talented students and community members at UNO," Ahrenholtz-Mettenbrink said.
Tickets for the Dec. 2 performance are $5 for adults, $4 for students and seniors and free with a UNO MavCard.
