The Omaha Symphony’s Family Series concert this Sunday will be a little wild.

It will feature a diverse program that includes the theme from “Jurassic Park” and “Winter” from Antonio Vivaldi’s “The Four Seasons” as nature-themed photographs are shown on a big screen above the stage at the Holland Center, 1200 Douglas St.

Symphony officials asked patrons to submit pictures and videos of nature scenes in the weeks before the event. Nature photographer John Fielding also partnered with the symphony to provide photos.

Other pieces on the program — directed by principal pops conductor Ernest Richardson — will include the first movement of Ludwig van Beethoven’s “Pastorale” and themes from “Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets” and “The Magnificent Seven.”

As usual at family concerts, the symphony will have its instrument petting zoo in the Holland lobby before the show. And this time, representatives from the Fontenelle Forest Raptor Recovery program will be on hand with eagles and peregrine falcons.

The “Call of the Wild” concert starts at 2 p.m. Tickets, $12, are available at or 420-345-0606.
