Pandemic or not, it's still the holidays with the Omaha Symphony, though a little different this year! No live audience allowed due to the pandemic, but that won’t stop the Omaha Symphony from providing a holiday extravaganza…Free of charge to all of the Greater Omaha metro!
Conductor Ernest Richardson and Stage Director/Choreographer Parker Esse joined Mike Hogan for a three-part “Live & Local” interview to discuss how they tackled the Herculean task of adapting, restaging, filming, and editing this huge production in a safe, healthy, and entertaining manner. The holidays will not be stopped, and these two tell the story of how the holiday show was saved.
Omaha Symphony has teamed up with WOWT Channel 6 to broadcast “Physicians Mutual Presents: Home for the Holidays with the Omaha Symphony” straight to your home! The holiday program audiences have grown to love will feature a physically distanced orchestra, singers, and dancers filmed remotely. It is with great pride and a team effort that Omaha Symphony brings this holiday tradition safely to the homes of Omahans completely free of charge as a gift to the community. The program will air December 23rd at 7:00 p.m. and December 25th at 1:00 p.m. on WOWT.
