Nebraska Concerts

Sunday, April 9, at 1 p.m. Central on Nebraska Concerts:

Nebraska Concerts is taking a day off on April 2. At our usual time, be sure to tune in to a special broadcast of Dick Cavett and Paula Poundstone's recent show at the Lied Center for the Performing Arts in Lincoln.

On April 9 we'll be back with a performance by the Omaha Symphony. The orchestra offers up Beethoven's Coriolan Overture, the last symphony by his teacher Haydn, as well as a horn concerto by Wolfgang's dad Leopold, and William Bolcom's delightfully named  'Comedia for 'Almost' 18th Century Orchestra'.

The classics will be followed up with a generous encore of jazz tunes performed by the Nebraska Jazz Orchestra.
