The Glenn Korff School of Music’s Campus Band will perform a concert, “Hear My Voice” at 1 p.m. May 1 in Kimball Recital Hall.

The concert is free and open to the public and will also be live webcast. Visit the Glenn Korff School of Music website the day of the performance for the link.

The program includes music by Biedenbender, Colonna, Reed, Shapiro, Shostakovich and others.

The concert will conclude with the combined bands performing a world premiere of Zachary J. Friedland’s “Hear My Voice” in memory of the late university bandsman Tyler Butterfield. The piece was commissioned by the Midwest District of Kappa Kappa Psi and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.

Butterfield, a trumpet player in the Cornhusker Marching Band, Big Red Express and university Campus Bands, passed away on Oct. 26, 2018, as the result of a car accident after attending a pep band event before a home football game.

“Please come enjoy some great band music and join us as we honor the memory of Tyler,” said director Doug Bush, assistant director of bands.

The Campus Band is the university’s largest concert band. Its select mission is to provide a high quality performance venue for musicians representing a wide array of musical backgrounds and major fields of study within the university.
