Lincoln’s Symphony Orchestra (LSO) is presenting their second concert of the 23-24 season, “LSO on the Double,” on Friday, October 20, at 7:30 p.m. at the Lied Center for Performing Arts.
The Lincoln Youth Symphony joins LSO for a side-by-side performance of Beethoven’s Leonore Overture No. 3. LSO then will welcome Syrian clarinetist Kinan Azmeh and Lebanese violinist Layale Chaker to perform their recently-composed Dawning for Improvising Musicians and Orchestra, co-commissioned by LSO, the Nebraska Crossroads Music Festival and the New York Philharmonic. “I’ve heard performances from both Kinan and Layale, and was blown away,” stated LSO Music Director Edward Polochick. “I am so excited to perform something that they’ve composed together.”
After intermission, LSO will perform Jean Sibelius’ monumental Symphony No. 2 in D major. “I’ve yet to conduct Sibelius’s Second Symphony in Lincoln,” shared Polochick. “After 25 years, now is the time.”
Single tickets are available with prices of $20 or $40 for adults and $5 for youth.
Lincoln’s Symphony Orchestra presents a season of 11 concerts which are attended by 10,000 audience members annually. Visit lincolnsymphony.com, email email@example.com or call (402) 476-2211 for more information.
