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, professor and conductor.
The concert will feature music by Ludwig van Beethoven, Franz Schubert and Igor Stravinsky, as well as the world premiere of a new concerto by White.
“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, Bo Atlas, soloist from the UNL faculty, 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 lament, to lyrical and intensely rhythmic triumph. The program ends with the 1919 version of Stravinsky’s “Firebird Suite”. “
