There will be a very special guest at Sunday’s Omaha Symphony concert. Ashland native and retired astronaut Clayton Anderson will take the helm at Symphonic Space Odyssey at the Holland Performing Arts Center.
Anderson says, “I have several roles. I will read a story to the audience. I’ll sing a little bit with the symphony and a computer and I’m going to play the trombone briefly. I love music myself having been a musician. I’m really looking forward to it.”
Anderson says children will be able to write questions before the performance and he will try to answer as many as possible during the show. Children will also have the opportunity to make instruments in the lobby and play along with Anderson and the Omaha Symphony during one song.
Anderson says he is a huge supporter of music and the arts and is very pleased to be invited to take part in this event.
Pre-concert activities start at 1:15 pm and the concert at 2. For ticket information log on to omahasymphony.org.
