Flyover New Music Series to present ’Cognizance’

calendar icon16 Jan 2018    

LINCOLN, Neb.— The Flyover New Music Series, the new music series from the composition studio at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln’s Glenn Korff School of Music, will have its first performance of the Spring semester “Cognizance” on Friday, January 26 at 7:30 p.m. in Westbrook Recital Hall. The series is administered and overseen by composition faculty and students. 

In the program notes to his piece Cognizance – from which our program takes its name – composition student Joshua Spaulding writes: “we will only continue to move forward through deliberate collaboration with those we each perceive to be different.” 

The program is a uniquely collaborative one. Several of the pieces you’ll hear were written and conceived alongside the student performers who will present them. Many of the performers tonight are composers themselves, with some featuring their work on the program. The variety of experiences and expressions represented in this program is immense, but every piece is a collaborative exercise: a shared effort between performer, composer, and listener to create something amazing together.

The performance is free and open to the public.
