Kearney Symphony Orchestra director, 308.865.8618

Audiences can expect to be awed by an eclectic, inspired performance by the Kearney Area Symphony Orchestra on Tuesday, Feb. 27, at 7:30 p.m.
The performance, titled “Anything Goes,” will take place in the University of Nebraska at Kearney Fine Arts Recital Hall.
The aptly-titled performance will feature a variety of works, from Mendelssohn’s “Violin Concerto in E minor” to the children’s story “Tubby the Tuba.”
“There will be a wide variety of musical styles presented in the ‘Anything Goes’ concert,” said Dr. Ron Crocker, conductor of KASO.
Dr. Crocker said that selecting any one piece from the performance as a highlight would be difficult because of the variety of musical styles.
“It’s difficult to say what the highlight of the concert will be, because each piece will be a highlight for someone,” he said. “But for me, the highlight of the performance is the Mendelssohn Violin Concerto.”
The Mendelssohn piece will feature violinist Naomi Yonemoto, a UNK sophomore from Japan.
In addition, the Kearney High School Chamber Orchestra will perform “Three Dances for String Orchestra,” and then the KHS Orchestra will join KASO in performing the “Nimrod” variation from Edward Elgar’s “Enigma Variations.”
Tickets to the concert are $6 for general admission, $5 for senior citizens and free for UNK students and faculty with a valid UNK ID. Reserved seating is available in advance through the UNK box office at 308.865.8417.
