Symphony Joslyn continues during the Museum’s construction closure, with the 2022/23 season presented at the University of Nebraska Omaha’s Strauss Performing Arts Center, Christensen Concert Hall. Join us for six artful afternoons—matinee performances by the Omaha Symphony, each preceded by an art talk—October through May. The October 2 season opener, Beethoven Triple, has Maestro Bahl leading the orchestra in one of Mozart’s most hastily written masterpieces—his Symphony No. 36, “Linz,” written in just four days.

BEETHOVEN: Triple Concerto
MOZART: Symphony No. 36, "Linz"

Collection Connection
Before the concert, Kenneth Brummel, Curator of Twentieth-Century Art, sets the stage to experience American composer Caroline Shaw’s Entr’acte, by exploring the mysterious world of Kay Sage’s (American, 1898-1963) Men Working. This surrealist painting pairs well, as Shaw notes that the music that inspired her own piece takes the listener to “the other side of Alice’s looking glass, in a kind of absurd, subtle, technicolor transition.” Join us to consider Sage’s ambiguous work.
