December 6th, 2019

By Corbin Hirschhorn

Omaha, NE—The holiday season is here, and it’s time again for the Christmas at the Cathedral concert, led by the Omaha Symphonic Chorus at St. Cecilia’s this weekend. Dr Greg Zielke has been Artistic Director and Conductor of the Symphonic Chorus since 2002. This will be his last time conducting Christmas at the Cathedral due a new teaching position at Tabor College in Kansas, and it will no doubt be a memorable performance.

Featuring Dr. Greg Zielke

Christmas at the Cathedral is a collaborative concert featuring Symphonic Chorus vocalists, the Omaha Symphony, and often other voice ensembles in the area.

The setlist for Christmas at the Cathedral changes each year, offering both holiday classics and new takes on the theme. This concert is decidedly modern and diverse and includes well-known local composer, Jackson Berkey.

Christmas at the Cathedral is this weekend at St. Cecilia’s Church, Friday December 6 at 7:30pm and Sunday the 8th at 2:00pm. For more information, visit OmahaSymphonicChorus.org.
