The University of Nebraska at Omaha’s annual Fourth of July Carillon Concert will be held virtually this year.

The concert will premiere on UNO’s website at 9 a.m. Saturday, but will remain on the website for viewing later as well.

Director of UNO’s school of music Washington Garcia said although they would have liked to have it in person this year, they decided to have it online instead because of social distancing concerns.

"This year it is better to broadcast the concert than having it live," Garcia said.

UNO alumni Brent Shaw is this year’s performer. He will be playing a variety of songs on the carillon, but primarily popular American anthems.
