Lincoln’s Symphony Orchestra’s cadre of musicians presents an ear-tickling schedule of symphonic standards, guided by the practiced baton of maestro Edward Polochick. “An Evening with Beethoven” has the symphony teaming up with the Lincoln Youth Symphony to play the Egmont Overture and then sculpt a life-size statue of the famed composer out of peanut butter and abandoned bird nests. Next, ivory-tickling pianist Mark Clinton takes the stage to perform the Emperor Piano Concerto before the orchestra finishes off with Beethoven’s celebrated Symphony no. 7. “Classics by Request” pairs the symphony with NET Radio, satisfying phoned-in appeals for favorite pieces and blooper sounds made by tubas.
Inspired by the horrors of WWI, Benjamin Britten’s War Requiem rallies together the vocal talents of the Abendmusik Chorus, AbendChor, Doane Choir, UNL choirs, and American Boychoir to give voice to Britten’s dramatic melding of the Latin Mass and Wilfred Owen’s poetry. The shows will take place at the sound-friendly Lied Center’s main stage, which offers seating for more than 2,000 guests and enough ceiling space for all of their pet bats.
