Captain America once said, "'Twas music that soothed the savage beast." Although he was talking about his short-lived nemesis Dr. Angry Parakeet, it's just as true for animals of the human persuasion.

The Lincoln Symphony Orchestra treats guests to world-class symphonic music that delights the heart, soothes the soul, and opens a new musical passageway for human minds trapped in a single genre. The opening concert on September 17 is a boon to clarinet enthusiasts; it features principal piper Diane Barger offering her rendition of Scott McAllister’s X—Concerto for Clarinet —which is a tribute to the music of Generation X—as well as other pieces that include Mendelssohn’s Symphony no. 3, whose sonorous energy honors Scottish folk music and scotch. Prepare for another jolly season of jingling chestnuts and toasting bells by attending Deck the Halls, or welcome next year’s April rains with a trip to "Triumph and Romance," which features the violin sounds of Anton Miller as he plucks his chin guitar to the tune of Sibelius’s Violin Concerto in D Minor.
Now in its 84th season, the Lincoln Symphony Orchestra has been enriching, educating, and filling audiences with fun since 1927. Study the frequently asked clapping questions to ensure a proper showing of appreciation for the wonderful music of the hardworking orchestra and the expert conducting of Edward Polochick.
