Stages across the world remain dark, but we are turning the lights on here at Countryside for you! While in-person performing arts may not be back for a few more months, we hope that we can fill a valuable gap for Countrysiders as well as the broader community with these offerings. It is a chance for us to support local musicians. These concerts will cover a wide range of genres – from jazz and classical to Broadway, folk music, and ethnic music.
For the month of July, we will continue to hear from our extremely talented musicians at Countryside in ways we don’t often get to hear them.
Friday, July 10, 7 PM: Jules and Joe – Our own Julia and Joe Olynyk will serenade you as you kick back and relax from the week that was.
Friday July 17, 7 PM: A Flute Extravaganza – This concert will feature our Artist in Residence Christie Beard, along with students from her flute studio at UNO. COVID-19 has taken away many performance opportunities for college students, so we are going to provide a performance space for them to delight us with classics and new works from the flute repertoire and add a bit of spice with some tango!
Friday July 24, 7 PM: A Mister Rogers Sing-Along – It will be a beautiful day to sing along to some favorites from the PBS series!
Friday July 31, 7 PM: Jazz on the Stream -Countryside Jazz returns to the livestream stage to play some more favorites.
In August, we will again be bringing the Broadway stage to your doorstep, and will explore a wide variety of music: from the Andes to Africa, with a side of soul! Concert links can be found on the Countryside calendar at countrysideucc.org/calendar.
