UNO Music Sponsors Oct. 1 Concert for Hunters
Omaha - For many, fall weather means hunting and, on Tuesday, Oct. 1, the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) Department of Music is providing a special event in honor of the patron saint of huntsmen.
Taking place at the Trinity Episcopal Cathedral, 109 N. 18th St., UNO welcomes world-famous horn player Thomas Bacon to lead the Saint Hubert Mass – a traditional ceremony performed for hunters.
The 7 p.m. show costs $20 for adults and $10 for students with doors opening at 6 p.m. A pre-concert talk will begin at 6 p.m. to explain the show.
Tickets can be purchased at the door or by visiting www.omahaconsort.org.
Tuesday’s arrangement will involve a 24-horn choir assembled from Omaha Symphony players and the top musicians from UNO and other area high schools.
The Saint Hubert Mass is named for a Christian saint who is recognized as the patron saint of hunters. According to legend, Saint Hubert came across a deer with a cross between its antlers while hunting and the deer commanded Hubert to give his life to religion, after which he became a prominent cleric and bishop.
Thomas Bacon has performed all over the world and held principal horn positions with the Syracuse Symphony, Detroit Symphony, Houston Symphony and Berlin Radio Symphony. He has also served on the faculty at Arizona State University, Rice University, University of Houston and Syracuse University.
In addition to UNO, Tuesday’s event is also sponsored by ifixomaha.com.
