MAESTRO SUBS FOR MAESTRO
Omaha Symphony Conductor Steps In
Dr. A. Barron Breland has anticipated conducting his five English favorites from the choral repertoire for a long time. His wait has been extended, however. A family matter of great importance has called the Résonance music director and conductor out of town.
Ernest Richardson, principal pops conductor and resident conductor for the Omaha Symphony, will helm this weekend’s Britannia! concerts in place of Maestro Breland. "I have great admiration for Barron as an artist and a colleague. His work with Résonance has resulted in a first-class vocal ensemble,” says Richardson. “I am grateful for the opportunity to support my colleague and friend during his time of need.”
Résonance performs the final concert of their season this Saturday at Trinity Episcopal Cathedral and Sunday at First United Methodist Church and features the talent of associate music director and organist Mark Kurtz, as well as the ensemble of singers in British choral masterpieces. Tickets start at $12 and are available at resonancevoices.org.
