After a two-year search process, unanimous decision and much-anticipated announcement, Ankush Kumar Bahl returns to Omaha to conduct his first performance as the recently appointed appointed Music Director of the Omaha Symphony. The Maestro steps onto the podium to lead the orchestra in a jubilant program featuring Mendelssohn’s unhindered concert opening, “The Hebrides” and the colorful Symphony No. 2 in D major by Sibelius.
Ankush recently caught up with Mike Hogan for a two-part “Live & Local” interview about his new role, how he stayed “fresh” during shutdowns and gave insight into his directing heroes.
The performances with Ankush on the podium will take place at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, February 13 and at 2 p.m. on Sunday, February 14 at the Holland Performing Arts Center Peter Kiewit Hall.
Performances at the Holland Performing Arts Center feature physically distant seats and will only be seated to a maximum of 30 percent of their capacity. All customers will be required to complete a health check-up questionnaire before accessing their mobile tickets through the Ticket Omaha app. Masks are mandatory during the indoor performances of the Omaha Symphony.
