University Choir to Join Lincoln's Symphony Orchestra for Performance of Beethoven's Symphony No. 9
The Nebraska Wesleyan University Choir will have the unique opportunity to perform one of music's most beloved works.
The Choir will join Lincoln's Symphony Orchestra for two performances of Ludwig van Beethoven's Symphony No. 9, which closes with the familiar melody "Ode to Joy." The concerts will be held Thursday, May 6 and Friday, May 7 at 7:30 p.m. at Kimball Recital Hall, located on the University of Nebraska-Lincoln campus.
Ticket prices have been significantly reduced to provide the opportunity for more people to attend a live performance of this transforming piece of music. Single tickets are available for $25 and $10.
A pre-concert chat, hosted by William Stibor, music director for NET Radio, will be both May 6 and May 7 from 6:45-7 p.m. in the lower lobby of Kimball Recital Hall.
The Nebraska Wesleyan University Choir is a select 54-voice ensemble. Since 1977, the choir has undertaken seven foreign concert tours and two choral residencies in Hawaii in addition to annual concert tours throughout the United States. The choir is under the direction of William A. Wyman who is in his 35th year at Nebraska Wesleyan.
