Vienna Boys Choir Coming to UNO in October
Omaha - The Department of Music at the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) will host a concert by the Vienna Boys Choir on Friday, Oct. 29, at the Strauss Performing Arts Center. The event begins at 7:30 p.m.
Ticket sales for the concert will begin Monday, Sept. 13. Tickets for the general public are $35 and will be available by going online to http://www.unomaha.edu/music/viennaboyschoir.php. Call (402) 554-3427 with questions or for more information.
“We expect this concert to sell out very quickly,” said Matthew Harden, director of choral activities at UNO. “The international reputation of the Vienna Boys Choir is unmatched.”
The choir, made up of 24 boys (none older than 14), is on a national tour. Those who attend can expect to hear music ranging from Latin motets and Strauss polkas to contemporary church music and pop classics. The Vienna Boys Choir is the highlight of a week’s worth of music concert offerings at UNO. A complete listing of concert information is available at www.unomaha.edu/music under the concert and events link.
“This is a rare opportunity to hear this group live,” Harden said. “We’re extremely proud to make this concert possible in Omaha.” A limited number of free tickets will be made available for UNO students.
