The University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) and the College of Communication, Fine Arts and Media (CFAM) are excited to present the annual Fourth of July Celebration Recital, which will be performed by UNO carillon studies alumnus Brent Shaw on the carillon inside the UNO Henningson Memorial Campanile.
This performance is free of charge and will feature a variety of selections performed on the bronze bells of the Campanile. Audience members can gather around the base of the bell tower to enjoy the music.
The concert begins promptly at 9 A.M. on Thursday, July 4 and is free to attend. There will be limited seating, so guests are encouraged to bring their own chairs. Parking will be open for all attendees.
The Community Engagement Center will be open to the public for use of restrooms and water fountains.
There is open parking across campus on weekends (no permit required). The closest lots to the bell tower are D, E, and M.
Please note, that the two most northern rows of parking stalls in Lot M, just south of the Criss Library, will be unavailable for parking. All other stalls in Lot M will function normally during this time.
Questions can be directed to Parking Services at firstname.lastname@example.org.
About the Henningson Memorial Campanile
The Henningson Memorial Campanile is a visible part of the Omaha skyline and the University of Nebraska at Omaha campus. The 16-story tower stands at 168 feet and contains 47 bronze bells, weighing a combined 2.5 tons. UNO broke ground for the tower’s foundation in May of 1988, and it was completed in 1989 thanks to a donation from Margre Henningson-Durham, who with her husband Charles W. Durham were significant donors for the Durham Science Center. The campanile’s construction is in memory of Margre’s parents, Henning and Rose Henningson, and sister, Helen Henningson-Grimes.
