WELCOME TO VESPER CONCERTS!
Welcome to the Vesper Concerts web site announcing the 2016-17 season, our 28th!
From the opening September 25 concert featuring a trio of stellar Omaha musicians to the concluding concert in April 2017 with a Harp trio, the season presents some of the finest musicians of the Omaha area in addition to the internationally renowned Dover Quartet.
In addition to the exciting lineup of performing musicians, Vesper Concerts is pleased to announce its 4th YOUTH COMPOSES competition for student composers in middle school, high school and college undergraduates. As a part of this competition, the 3 top rated compositions in each age bracket will be presented in public concert. I hope that you will support these accomplished, young composers.
All of the concerts are at 3:00 p.m. on Sunday afternoons except the YOUTH COMPOSES program. The Youth Composes program will feature winning compositions from the competition as well as chamber ensembles from the Omaha Area Youth Orchestras on February 18, 2017 at a location to be announced. All concerts except the YOUTH COMPOSES concert are at Presbyterian Church of the Cross, 1517 South 114 Street, Omaha.
And, in keeping with our mission to present all of this great music as a gift to the community, ALL the programs are FREE!
Welcome! And, enjoy the music!
