Music season includes performance webcasts

The UNL Glenn Korff School of Music has announced its fall 2014 season.

The schedule includes the musical “City of Angels,” a performance in the Hixson-Lied Concert Series of the Chiara String Quartet and the Cornhusker Marching Band Highlights Show at the Lied Center for Performing Arts.

About 50 different performances will take place over the five-month period beginning in late August, including the Faculty Jazz Ensemble on Sept. 16, the University of Nebraska Brass Quintet on Sept. 29 and Cocoa and Carols on Dec.7.

This fall marks a new era at the Kimball Recital Hall that will make Glenn Korff School of Music performances more pleasant and accessible.

“First, we are pleased to report that UNL has made possible the re-upholstery of all seating in the Kimball Recital Hall,” said UNL Glenn Korff School of Music Director John W. Richmond. “For our long-time patrons, you will know what a fabulous improvement this will be to this wonderful concert space.

“Second, we are entering into a marvelous partnership with NET to webcast some of our performances that take place in the Kimball Recital Hall and the Westbrook Recital Hall each week. You will see these so designated in this fall’s Calendar of Events.”

This initiative is made possible through the support of the Glenn Korff School of Music Endowment and the Encore Circle Fund.

The Chiara String Quartet will have a single concert during the fall semester. It occurs early in the semester on Sept. 12 at 7:30 p.m. in the Kimball Recital Hall. Advance tickets can be purchased from the Lied Center Box Office, which can be contacted at 402-472-4747.

The Musical, “City of Angels,” will take place Nov. 14 and 16 in Kimball Recital Hall, while the Cornhusker Marching Band Highlights Concert will be Dec.16 at 7:30 p.m.
