Enjoy the Sandhill Symphony on Sunday, October 26th . Show begins at 3:00 p.m. at the North Platte High School Performing Arts Center, 1220 West 2nd Street, North Platte NE 69101
“Heroes and Villains” is the theme of the fall concert by the Sandhills Symphony Orchestra.
It will feature musical tributes to heroes and villains.
Conductor Carmen Allen invites children who want to wear their Halloween costumes to come dressed for the concert.
“We would love to see some Superman costumes as well as perhaps a James Bond or a ‘Pirate of the Caribbean,’” she said. “The kids will enjoy the familiar music and also be treated to a ‘trick-or-treat’ time after the concert.”
In addition to the music from various films and the stories of literary characters, the symphony concert will focus on some genuine heroes.
General John J. Pershing, who taught Military Science at the University of Nebraska in Lincoln before serving as General of the Armies in WWI, receives well-deserved recognition in “Ode To A Hero.”
All of our military men and women are heroes, and the stirring “Band of Brothers” honors them, Carmen said.
As usual, the Sandhills Symphony concert on will be offered to the community free of charge.
Carnen said various individuals and businesses have chosen to support the work of the orchestra and make it possible for this free concert. The concert is a tradition that is now in its 53rd year.
