If you were hoping to hear us perform on Sunday, March 10,
you're in luck—the stars aligned and we were able to get all 11
musicians, the studio, the piano, and NET personnel together again to
recreate the concert! The new date is Sunday, March 24, at 3:00 pm.
Winds, strings, piano, harp, celeste...you'll hear a
little of everything on this concert. On the program are four works
brand new to us, and we're excited for one last opportunity to share
them with you!
Dutch composer Henri Zagwijn's Nocturne is a pastoral piece written for
a unique combination of instruments: flute, clarinet, English horn,
bassoon, French horn, harp and celeste. The playful and lyrical Quartet
by Jean Françaix features English horn, violin, viola and cello (also
an unusual grouping). The 2012 Larsen Young Artist Award winner joins
us for Alexander Borodin's String Trio, followed by the robust and
exciting Piano Quartet by William Walton.
You'll see a couple of new faces on our stage, beginning with the
newest member of NCP, oboist Bob Jenkins. A Lincoln native, Bob has
performed with the Omaha Symphony for many years on both oboe and
English horn. Violinist Jennifer Ahn was the winner of the 2012 Max
& Lillie Larsen Young Artist Award, which honors young Nebraska
The concert will be at NET Studios, 1800 N. 33rd in Lincoln. Tickets
are $22 for adults and $5 for students (children 10 & under are
free), and will be available at the door. All tickets reserved for the
March 10 concert will be honored. Doors open 30 minutes before, with
hors d'oeuvres and beverages served before the concert and at
intermission. There is ample parking near the front door.
Mother Nature foiled us once, but we anticipate no cosmic
glitches this time around. We hope you can join us for what will
finally be our LAST regular season concert of the year!
