Indulging In the Word: An Elegant Evening of Art, Music, and DiningA night of spirit, strings, and psalms celebrating the special exhibition "Word and Image: The Saint John's Bible."The evening begins at 6 pm with exhibition viewing and a cocktail reception on the Strauss Bridge featuring music by harpist Kim Meyer (right). In the galleries, Taylor J. Acosta, Ph.D., Associate Curator of European Art, will be on hand providing commentary on select pages of The Saint John’s Bible.At 7:15 pm, guests will move to the beautiful Storz Fountain Court for an elegant dinner adorned with floral centerpieces inspired by a page from "The Saint John’s Bible."Punctuating the dining experience will be a special concert by Omaha-based Rangbrook Ensemble performing several spiritual refrains, including “Psalm 8” for soprano, viola and cello, “Draw the Sacred Circle Closer,” and “In Manus Tuas."Founded in 2011, the Rangbrook Ensemble is a professional string chamber ensemble dedicated to the performance of classical music and music education for all ages. Their goals include creating a place for the ensemble as a cultural institution in Nebraska; increasing interest in and attendance at classical music concerts across all demographics; and generating sufficient support to attract and keep a core group of the region’s best professional string players.EVENT REGISTRATIONPre-registration is required one week prior to the event.
