On Charter Day, February 15, 2019, the University of Nebraska celebrated its 150th anniversary with a monumental evening of live performance and multimedia entertainment. At Music and Milestones, host Jeff Zeleny, University of Nebraska alum, native Nebraskan and Senior White House Correspondent for CNN, guided the audience through some of the University’s major accomplishments.

More than 300 artists united to perform a program including Wagner’s “Entrance of the Gods,” Orff’s “O Fortuna” from Carmina Burana and N 150-commissioned new works by Nebraska alums David von Kampen and Garrett Hope. Special features include tributes to celebrated alumni Willa Cather, Roxane Gay, and Ted Kooser. Performing ensembles include the Cornhusker Marching Band, UNL Symphony Orchestra, UNL Opera, UNL Dance, Chamber Singers, University Singers, and the Varsity Singers.
