Review: Lincoln’s Symphony and “The Voice” contestant Hannah Huston

Posted on: September 22, 2016

“For two performances Sunday, the teacher-turned-singer was both in her home state and in her natural habitat: on stage and singing,” writes Kevin Coffey in Tuesday’s (9/22) Omaha World-Herald (Nebraska). “Hannah Huston, who placed third in the most recent season of ‘The Voice,’ sang for more than 2,000 fans at each of two sold-out shows at the Lied Center for Performing Arts. Backed by the Lincoln’s Symphony Orchestra, Huston showed off her powerhouse vocals in renditions of songs by Adele, Percy Sledge and Allen Stone. At her early performance Huston appeared to grow more confident in her vocals as the show went on, until her voice was soaring over the sweeping symphony in the final few songs…. Closing the show was an encore of Adele’s ‘Rolling in the Deep,’ which brought her fans to their feet.” The 2016-17 season of Lincoln’s Symphony Orchestra comprises six classical concerts at the Lied Center for Performing Arts, as well as two family concerts and two pops concerts. The orchestra’s music director is Edward Polochick, and the executive director is Barbara Zach. In 2011, the LSO lowered its ticket prices and moved to the Lied Center, with the audience more than doubling in size.
