Ankush Kumar Bahl Conducts Mendelssohn and Sibelius
February 9th, 2021
Omaha, NEâ€”Omaha Symphony returns with another concert this weekend, featuring recently appointed Music Director Designate, Ankush Kumar Bahl. This is Bahlâ€™s long awaited debut in his new position, as his appearance last year was hampered by COVID-19. February 13 and 14, the orchestra will present two pieces with a special importance to Maestro Bahl, Mendelssohnâ€™s â€œThe Hebridesâ€, and Sibeliusâ€™ Symphony No. 2 in D Major.
A 20-year-old Mendelssohn was inspired by a trip to the Scottish islands, and the melody has been described as one of his greatest.
Both pieces to be performed this weekend display a remarkable sense of the environment.
Omaha Symphony, under the baton of Maestro Ankush Kumar Bahl, will present Mendelssohn and Sibelius this weekend, Saturday, February 13 at 7:30pm and Sunday the 14 at 2:00pm. Physical distancing, enhanced cleaning and sanitation, and other COVID precautions will be implemented. For more information, go to OmahaSymphony.org.
