Many a New Day: The Songs of Rodgers & Hammerstein with the UNO Jazz Ensemble & Heartland Philharmonic Orchestra
Strauss Performing Arts Center
Join five-time Grammy nominee, Omaha native, and UNO alumna Karrin Allyson with UNO's Jazz Ensemble and Heartland Philharmonic Orchestra for an evening of Rodgers & Hammerstein. The concert will feature Allyson's romantic, sly and swinging take on songs that have become part of our cultural fabric, from "Oh, What a Beautiful Morning" to "Happy Talk" to "I Cain't Say No" and numerous others. The repertoire will be drawn from the singer's debut CD on the Motema label: Many a New Day. Come celebrate UNO's College of Communication, Fine Arts, and Media 10th Anniversary with Karrin at the Strauss Performing Arts Center!
The UNO College of Communication, Fine Arts and Media (CFAM) was established in 2005, the college now comprises the schools of The Arts, Communication, and Music. Over the course of the 2015-16 academic year, each of our units will present a series of events showcasing their own unique contributions to our college and their respective fields. The year-long celebration will culminate on April 29, 2016 with a live performance featuring Grammy Award-winning alumna Karrin Alyson, the School of Music's Jazz Ensemble, and the Heartland Philharmonic Orchestra.
