Thomas’s Adventures In Music Giveaway

The Omaha Symphony has another show coming up in its Family Series. How many of you got to go to “Symphonic Space Odyssey”?

If you’re not familiar with the series, read my review of one of the previous shows here.

The next show in series is “Thomas’s Adventures in Music” on Sunday, Feb. 22, at 2 p.m. at the Holland Center. This one is special, since Thomas Wilkins will be conducting. I hear he’s a lot of fun!

The show will feature a narrator, Dave Wingert, and Omaha Symphony’s  tuba player, Craig Fuller. The music is going to be a lot of familiar classical pieces, including “Smetana’s Dance of the Comediennes” from “The Bartered Bride” and the “William Tell Overture.” Some slightly more familiar pieces are John Williams’s “Superman March” and “Tubby the Tuba.”

As always, there will be lobby activities that you want to show up early for!

  1. We are piano and cello people around here! Love music! 🙂

  2. I played a violin as a child so I’d love for my kids to try that but my daughter is very interested in the piano!

  3. My son loves all instruments right now! And my niece has decided that she likes the piano, but that changes frequently! 🙂

  4. This would be so much fun! My four year loved the last music concert we took him to!

  5. My daughter loves the flute

  6. Piano, drums, and xylophone.

  7. My daughter loves the piano…because she takes lessons. But she also enjoys the winds.

  12. I have a daughter that plays the flute, my son plays the trumpet, I played the clarinet, and my husband played the trombone. I can’t wait for our 2 younger daughters to start playing an instrument.
