Back to the concert hall

It was like being wrapped in a warm blanket to be back hearing live music in a great concert hall. In part to mark the tenth anniversary of the opening of Omaha’s Holland Performing Arts Center, the Omaha Symphony (OS) hosted a live and in-person, socially distanced chamber concert. The sweet acoustic of the Peter Kiewit Concert Hall is a quick reminder of why music best lives on stage rather than on screen. While the hall seats 2,005, there were about 250 masked ticket holders in attendance at this diverse program that showcased the skills of the OS’ principal players. Kudos to the Symphony for taking a small but important step in opening to the public and for programming such a wide range of music and musical styles.  For the complete review, go here: https://www.earrelevant.net/2021/03/review-omaha-symphony-musicians-play-well-balanced-chamber-concert-to-live-audience/
