The University of Nebraska-Lincoln Glenn Korff School of Music presents the 12th annual Celebration of American Song at 7:30 p.m. on Jan. 25 at 7:30 p.m. in Kimball Recital Hall.
This year will be a celebration of the female composers and lyricists who have contributed songs to the great American Songbook over the last century. The first half of the show celebrates the pioneers, who wrote music in the early 20th century. The second half celebrates women who are writing music today.
Alisa Belflower returns as host, sharing the stories of the women and their music. The celebration features performances by UNL’s voice faculty, alums and current students, with Kurt Knecht at the piano.
Tickets are only available at the door. Seniors and student are $3 and general public are $5.
