The weekly classical program takes a break until we have more concerts to air, but we'll have a jazz series on Saturday evenings at 9 p.m. Central for nine weeks in early 2021.  It is written, produced, and edited by Dave Hughes, and hosted by NET classical hosts. Most of the concerts are recorded by James Duchesneau and Jeff Smith. UNL Glenn Korff School of Music recordings are courtesy of Jeffrey O'Brien.  Nebraska Brass, Nebraska Jazz Orchestra, and Nebraska Trumpet Ensemble are recorded by Tony Hillhouse and are courtesy of Arts Incorporated.  Most Abendmusik at First Plymouth concerts are recorded by John Casey.  Omaha Symphony concerts are recorded by Clete Baker of Studio B for Classical 90.7 KVNO.

Nebraska Concerts programs are not available for purchase, or as a podcast. You may stream the show online, and you may also search playlists from past shows.
