An outdoor music festival is a rustic, invigorating way to enjoy a familiar art form, like reading a Twain tome bound with a bear trap. Savor art in a bucolic setting sans limb loss with today's deal: for $10, you get one ticket (a $20 value) to the Meadowlark Music Festival's “Encore at the Vineyard” on Saturday, September 18, at Deer Springs Winery on Adams Street. Founded in 2001 to expose listeners of all ages and backgrounds to top-rate, affordable chamber music in a picturesque setting, Meadowlark celebrates a decade of performances with an encore presentation from its regular summer lineup. The University of Nebraska Brass Quintet will regale the audience with arrangements of trombone, tuba, horn, and two trumpets, sending mellifluous melodies across the air as spit valves are periodically emptied of the liquefied spirit of J.S. Bach. Having toured the U.S. and Europe, the five highly trained Nebraska faculty members may perform the music of William Schuman, Juraj Filas, and Eric Ewazen, among others. Attendees are invited to pack folding chairs and blankets for an evening of classical tootling beneath the stars.
The charming pastoral setting of Deer Creek Winery lends itself to romantic rendezvous a deux, mirthful group celebrations, and spontaneous metamorphoses into majestic, white-crested centaurs. Boxed dinners from Panera Bread, along with locally crafted wine pairings, will be available for purchase from 5:30 p.m. until the music commences at 7 p.m.
Tickets to this event are free for children under 16. Students 16 and over can purchase tickets for $5 here. Cost of dinner and wine not included.
