Omaha Symphony Coming To Chadron State College Friday Night


The Omaha Symphony is coming to Chadron State College this Friday, Feb 28, as part of the school’s Galaxy Series with a program that includes works by Beethoven, Mozart and Rossini.

Curtain time in Memorial Hall is 7:30 with advance tickets $15 for adults and $13 for youth and seniors. All tickets are $16 at the door.

The Omaha Symphony, which celebrates its centennial next year, performs for more than 120,000 people each year, but last visited Chadron almost 11 years ago. The full group was also in Chadron in 2002 while its Chamber Orchestra came and performed in 2005.

Leading the Symphony for the Chadron concert is Dr Ian Passmore, praised by “Fanfare” magazine as a rising young conductor whose work glows with performances recognized for their distinctive and often daring interpretations.

Passmore was recently named the Omaha Symphony’s Associate Conductor, the latest step on a career that’s included a residency at the Vietnam National Academy of Music and the Schmidt Conducting Fellowship with the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra.

Tickets for the concert are free for CSC faculty, students and staff if ordered in advance. They may be reserved by calling the CSC Box Office at 308-432-6207 or online at
