Vesper Concert Series Returns, ‘At Home in Nebraska’
August 23rd, 2019
Omaha, NEâ€”This weekend, the Vesper Concert Series enters its 31st season with At Home in Nebraska, a concert featuring selections from contemporary and classic operas. Not only have many of Sundayâ€™s musicians found home in Nebraska from elsewhere, but the afternoonâ€™s contemporary selections also debuted here.
The concert will begin with these two contemporary pieces and resolve with some operatic favorites, like Federicoâ€™s Lament, La Danzaâ€”and also some Bernstein. The movement from the first to the second half of the concert exhibit a progression of themes and styles, but itâ€™s also just as much about being an exciting challenge for musicians and audiences.
The aim of Sundayâ€™s concert is not to difference local music apart from classic opera, but rather perhaps to set them on the same stage.
The 2019-2020 season of the free Vesper Concert Series begins this Sunday August 25 with At Home in Nebraska, 3:00pm at the Presbyterian Church of the Cross. For more information, visit VesperConcerts.org.
