Treat your sweetheart to an evening of beauty and passion, as the Omaha Symphony presents Symphonic Dances Friday and Saturday, February 13 and 14, at 8 p.m. at the Holland Performing Arts Center.
The night begins with the music of West Side Story. This memorable, moving score tells the emotional story of a young couple, as they journey together through love and loss. We also feature Rachmaninoff’s sweeping Symphonic Dances, a piece that combines exciting rhythmic sections with lush melodies.
The program also showcases two talented guest artists. George Manahan, music director of the New York City Opera, will guest conduct. 20-year old Brittany Sklar, a rising star in classical music, is the featured soloist for Bruch’s Violin Concerto No. 1 in G Minor. Don’t miss this evening of music, celebrating lots of talent and lots of love!
