Highlights of the Program
Lincoln’s Symphony Orchestra and the University of Nebraska Cornhusker Marching Band gather classical pieces by Strauss, Mozart, and other seminal composers to celebrate cinematic soundtracks. Guests don’t just sit back and listen, either—they can also dress up and pose for pictures with their favorite movie stars.
- Strauss—”Introduction” from Also Sprach Zarathustra: This orchestral tone poem helped make Stanley Kubrick’s cinematic masterpiece, 2001: A Space Odyssey, as iconic as it is.
- Ponchielli—Dance of the Hours: This classic ballet piece was the soundtrack to a dance starring animated hippos, elephants, alligators, and ostriches in Disney’s Fantasia.
- Dukas—L’apprenti sorcier: Another piece from Disney’s Fantasia, The Sorcerer’s Apprentice accompanied Mickey Mouse’s disastrous foray into hands-free house cleaning.
- John Williams: Multiple works from the prolific composer conjure up scenes from Indiana Jones: Raiders of the Lost Ark, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Star Wars, Jurassic Park, and Superman.
- Anderson-Lopez, Lopez—”Let it Go” from Disney’s Frozen: This Academy Award–winning song has taken on a life beyond its film, having been covered by everyone from Demi Lovato to Eddie Vedder and French metalcore band Betraying the Martyrs.
Lincoln’s Symphony Orchestra
Tony Bennett, Ray Charles, Aaron Copland—these names barely scratch the surface of the many musical powerhouses who’ve performed alongside Lincoln’s Symphony Orchestra since 1927. Originally dubbed Lincoln Little Symphony Orchestra, the LSO has proven to be anything but small thanks to its renowned performances, educational programming, and dedication to the arts. Its dedication to the community has taken on a tangible form as well—it renamed itself Lincoln’s Symphony Orchestra in 2005 and began holding its concerts at a larger venue to help decrease its ticket prices and reliance on collapsable tubas.
