The Glenn Korff School of Music’s spring performance season will featuring the UNL opera production of Massenet’s “Cendrillion,” (Cinderella) and two Hixson-Lied Concert Series recitals with the Chiara String Quartet.
The five-month season (which begins in late January) includes more than 50 different performances, including the University Faculty Brass Quintet’s March 17 premiere of “NeBRASSka” by Bruce Broughton.
“Please come hear and see for yourself,” said John Richmond, director of the School of Music. “Learn why our faculty and students are garnering so many national and international accolades. Don’t confuse local with ordinary and distant with excellent. Our faculty and students create, perform and achieve splendidly every day.”
The Chiara String Quartet, Hixson-Lied Artists-in-Residence, will present concerts in Kimball Recital Hall — both at 7:30 p.m. on Feb. 4 and March 20. The spring concerts are part of the year-long, four-concert Hixson-Lied Concert Series.
The opera production of “Cendrillon” is Feb. 21 and 23 in Kimball Recital Hall. The productions include a pre-performance talk in the lower level of Kimball Hall, 45 minutes prior to curtain.
