Nebraska alumnus Steve Cohen returns to campus for a 7:30 p.m. Sept. 5 concert in Kimball Recital Hall.

The free, open-to-the-public performance will feature works from Cohen’s debut album, “Cruise Control.” The album was released during the 50th International Horn Symposium in August. It features horn music from five emerging American composers.

Alan Mattingly, professor of horn, said the album is “truly fantastic.”

“This recording project features five, brand-new works that Steven commissioned from composers who have made a name for themselves writing for the horn,” Mattingly said. “I’ve listened to all the tracks, and not only are the pieces incredibly well written, but Steven’s playing is remarkably expressive and technically flawless.”
