HEART & SOUL: Moving a Tradition Forward

Welcome to Our 89TH Season - 2014-15

Moving a Tradition Forward captures the pride of the Hastings Symphony Orchestra as we begin our 89th season. Great traditions, like that of the HSO, are
to be celebrated and prolonged. This season’s guest artists and family-friendly programming will certainly build ever-precious memories for new and returning audience members alike. Returning to the HSO stage are Tinglan Chen and Nathan Buckner performing Mendelssohn’s beloved Double Concerto in D minor. The Hastings College Bell Choir, fresh from their appearance at the Nebraska Music Educators Conference, will ring in Christmas with the Symphony. In the new year, the high school winners of our Young Artist Competition perform with the HSO, followed by violinist, Connie Moon for the breathtaking Brahms’ Violin Concerto. Our Education Outreach concerts fall on the 2015 Give Hastings Day, so plan on joining us for a special event that evening. Historically, patrons like you have been the heart and the musicians the soul who have kept the HSO together for 89 years. I ask that you remain supportive of our efforts to provide music and education for the citizens of south central Nebraska. More importantly, invite family and friends to become acquainted with the beauty of our concerts. I look forward to seeing you — as together, we move the Heart and Soul of HSO forward!


Musically Yours,
