Lied Center for Performing Arts: Your venue in Lincoln to hear great music

The Lied Center for Performing Arts opened in Lincoln 21 years ago due to the gift of the Lied Foundation. Since it’s beginning, the Lied Center has provided Lincolnites with a venue for local and national entertainment.
The main hall seats 2210 people, so there’s usually a seat available for the last minute concert goers. You may see it fill up when the UNL Marching Band, “The Pride of All Nebraska,” performs there, or when the community puts on their annual showing of Tchaikovsky’s, “Nutcracker Ballet.”

During the Lied Center’s season, you can hear local artists like the Chiara String Quartet and the Lincoln Symphony Orchestra. However, visiting artists are not to be missed. In the past, artists such as cellist Yo-Yo Ma, violinist Joshua Bell, famous pianists, orchestras, and ballets from around the world.

The directors of the Lied Center work hard each year to plan and provide a stimulating, well-rounded, and rewarding season. Anyone in Lincoln who is looking for an evening of culture, should look no further than the Lied Center. Keeping an eye on the upcoming events, or even purchasing season tickets to the events of the Lied Center is well worth the time and investment.

Whether you visit the Lied Center to hear and see a performance by a local artist or group, or if you are interested in the professional ballet from Moscow, or the orchestra from Prague, you know you’re in for a treat when you visit Lincoln’s Lied Center for Performing Arts.
