University of Nebraska – Lincoln Symphony Orchestra performs on December 7 | Nebraska today
The University of Nebraska-Lincoln Symphony Orchestra will perform at 7:30 p.m. on December 7 at the Kimball Recital Hall.
The concert, free and open to the public, will be webcast live. Details on how to broadcast the recital will be available here the day of the performance.
Members of the Symphony Orchestra, which resides at the Glenn Korff School of Music, include students from across the university. The orchestra is conducted by Tyler Goodrich White, teacher and conductor.
The December 7 concert program, “Resilience,” will feature music by Ludwig van Beethoven, Franz Schubert and Igor Stravinsky, as well as the world premiere of a new White concerto.
“The program opens with Beethoven’s hugely popular overture ‘Egmont’, followed by Schubert’s graceful and delightful Symphony No. 5 in B flat major,” said White. “After the intermission, ONE faculty soloist Bo Atlas joins the orchestra for the premiere of my “Resilience: Fantasy for tuba and orchestra”. This 12-minute work traces a dramatic narrative trajectory from disaster, through lamentation, to lyrical and intensely rhythmic triumph. The program ends with the 1919 version of Stravinsky’s “Firebird Suite”. “
