Nov. 7 Concert to Benefit UNO Percussion Ensemble
Omaha - The University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) Percussion Ensemble will hold a Friday, Nov. 7, concert as a fundraiser to help offset expenses for the group’s tour of Japan, set for later this month.
The concert will feature three local bands all with connections to campus – Andrew’s Avenue, Moses Prey, and Polydypsia. Andrew’s Avenue features UNO percussionist Jason Elliott, a senior majoring in the music technology concentration. Moses Prey has two UNO connections--drummer Tomm Roland is the UNO coordinator of percussion studies and percussionist/keyboardist Mike Pollock is an alumnus who holds a masters degree in percussion performance. Four of the five members of Polydypsia are UNO music majors.
The concert starts at 7:30 p.m. in the Milo Bail Student Center Ballroom. Tickets will be available at the door for $10. For more information, call (402) 554-3155.
UNO will celebrate its 100th anniversary beginning October 8, 2008. This celebration will recognize the partnership among the City of Omaha, its citizens and UNO to build a vibrant and dynamic community. The centennial theme is “UNO: Central To Our City Since 1908.” This theme acknowledges the past contributions of UNO to the community and sets the stage for great things to come.
UNO, inaugurated in 1968, emerged from the Municipal University of Omaha, established in 1931, which grew out of the University of Omaha founded in 1908. For Centennial information, go to http://www.unomaha.edu/100/.
