Jake Shimabukuro

October 12, 2023 at 7:30pm

Not Too Far Distant

A New Play by Becky BosenBoesen

November 8, 2023 at 7:30pm

 “IT'S ALMOST UNBELIEVABLE THAT ANYONE COULD BE HARDENED TO THE POINT OF DOING THE BRUTAL THINGS THEY DID...” A young man from the Midwest is sent to war, carrying with him the hopes of the free world. What Staff Sergeant Clarence Williams encounters there challenges and changes humanity forever. History touches the present when a new generation takes a journey through time to experience World War II alongside Clarence himself. Centered around his personal letters home, we learn that sometimes what seems so far away is much closer than we think. Filled with hope and heart, Not Too Far Distant honors the experience of the American soldier and reminds us that we all have the power - and the responsibility - to help create a brighter future.

Behzod Abduraimov, Piano

December 5, 2023 at 7:30pm

Introduced to Lied audiences in 2018 as a soloist with Russia's Mariinsky Orchestra, Behzod Abduraimov has quickly established himself as a rising classical music star.

Drum Tao 

March 7, 2024 at 7:30pm

A feast for the eyes and ears, Drum Tao's mesmerizing productions combine thunderous traditional taiko drumming with dazzling staging, theatrical costumes, and dramatic lighting effects. The international troupe of 40 performers has seemingly done it all, having collaborated with the Bolshoi Ballet, staged sold-out productions off-Broadway, appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and at the Olympics, and even recorded for Universal Music. Flute, marimba, and harp are added to the drum ensemble for dramatic effects, and high-octane choreography contributes fresh new energy to this centuries-old Japanese art form.

Three accomplished young singers with performance experience including Celtic Thunder, Riverdance, and stages around the world, perform fresh arrangements of beloved music. Joined by special guest Mairead Carlin from Celtic Woman, songs include “Red Is the Rose,” “Danny Boy,” “The Parting Glass,” “The Rocky Road to Dublin,” and more. AN UNFORGETTABLE EVENING OF IRISH MUSIC!

Piano virtuoso Jon Nakamatsu makes his highly anticipated return to Nebraska after performing a sold-out concert with Lincoln's Symphony Orchestra to close the Lied Center's historic 25th Anniversary Season in 2015. Catapulted to international attention in 1997 as the Gold Medalist of the Van Cliburn International Piano Competition — the only American to achieve this distinction since 1981 — Nakamatsu has performed with over 150 orchestras across the globe and regularly appears at the world's top concert halls, including Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, and Washington, DC's Kennedy Center.
