Red Cloud Opera House to host area musicians
RED CLOUD — The National Willa Cather Center will present Kevin and Heidi Cheng, a violin-piano duo from Central City, in concert at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 23, at the Red Cloud Opera House.
“Gifted, engaging and energetic” are just a few of the descriptors that have been used in connection with this classically trained piano-violin duo. The Chengs play a range of styles, including popular, country, classical, ragtime, romantic, western, bluegrass, patriotic, and contemporary and traditional sacred music.
Kevin is a native of Taiwan who has organized large-scale orchestral concerts to bring classical music to rural Nebraska. He has performed as guest pianist with Lincoln, Kearney, Sandhills and Cherokee symphonies. Heidi has served as second principal violinist in the Kearney Symphony Orchestra.
Admission is $12 in advance and $17 on the day of the show.
The opera house is following guidelines from the South Heartland District Health Department for Phase IV of the Directed Health Measure. For now, all performances will feature socially-distanced seating, thereby reducing the capacity of the auditorium, so we encourage advance purchase of tickets due to limited quantities available. Most seats will be available in pairs, with a distance of six feet between each group of seats. Face coverings are required to be worn while inside the opera house. Concessions will not be available, but patrons are welcome to bring a water bottle (no glass).
For more information, call 402-746-2641.
