April 8, 9 and 10 Symphony Pops Series: Rodgers & Hammerstein “At the Movies” Holland Performing Arts Center, 13th and Douglas Street 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, 2 p.m. Sunday; Tickets $15-$80?(402) 345-0606, omahaperformingarts.org or ticketomaha.com This may have been the music of another generation — or a couple generations ago for some readers — but it continues to stand the test of time and brings joy to hearts for good reason. Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein III were a musical gold mine during the Golden Age of Broadway musicals. Most of this material dates back 60 to 70 years, but the melodies and sentiment endure. This show, with the orchestra under the baton of Resident Conductor Ernest Richardson, will feature re-mastered clips and original vocals from the classic film versions of the duo’s works. Check your parents’ or grandparents’ music collections and prepare for memorable tunes from The Sound of Music, Oklahoma!, The King and I, South Pacific, and Carousel.
