2023 – 2024 Season
Getting to Know You
It is an honor, privilege, and thrill for me to join the HSO family as your new Artistic Director and Conductor for Season 98! The orchestra and I have planned an exciting and varied season that truly promises something for everyone.
First off, I want to acknowledge Dr. Byron Jensen and all my predecessors for building this orchestra and providing first-rate symphonic music to the entire Central Nebraska community. I’m looking forward to meeting as many of you personally as possible, so please step forward and say hello. This is YOUR orchestra, and our commitment to you is to provide a stimulating, inviting, and inclusive experience of great music for all.
As the HSO builds toward the milestone of our 100th season in 2025-26, we will be strengthening and expanding our commitment to the symphonic masterworks of past and present, exploring ear-catching, lesser-known works of the last four centuries, and celebrating the vibrant diversity of our state and region.
As I said before, Season 98 promises something for everyone: from the inspiring symphonic traditions of Beethoven, Shostakovich, Schumann, and Sibelius to newer masterpieces by Black, Latinx, LGBT+, and female composers, from the vibrant world of jazz to pops, Holiday favorites, and film music for the whole family. I can’t wait to get started—here’s to “Getting to Know You.”
Please join us for what will be an incredible HSO Season 98: Getting to Know You!
