calendar icon30 Aug 2019
LINCOLN, Neb.— Hub New Music will cap off a one-day residency at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Glenn Korff School of Music with a 7:30 p.m. concert in Kimball Recital Hall on Wednesday, September 11. The performance is free and open to the public.
Hub New Music is "one of the most talked about younger contemporary classical ensembles" (Oregon ArtsWatch). With its unique instrumentation of flute, clarinet, violin, and cello, the ensemble of "intrepids" (WQXR, New York) has been praised for performances of adventurous repertoire that are "gobsmacking and perfectly played" (Cleveland Classical), with the Boston Globe encouraging audiences, "next time the group offers a concert, go, listen, and be changed."
The group will meet with students at the Glenn Korff School of Music for workshops in both the morning and the afternoon prior to the evening performance. Greg Simon, Assistant Professor of Composition, is hosting Hub New Music.
Hub New Music is a group of passionate educators whose approach to teaching melds the artistic and entrepreneurial facets of modern musicianship. Working with student performers and composers at residencies across the country, Hub empowers younger generations of musicians through workshops on building an arts organization, commissioning new work, and developing meaningful collaborations. Residency activities have brought (or will soon bring) Hub New Music to the New England Conservatory, University of Michigan, University of Texas Austin, UC Irvine, Stetson University, Bowling Green State University, Boston Conservatory, University of Hawaii East-West Center, and others. In 2019-20 the ensemble introduces its latest educational program HubLab, a K-12 residency program that uses graphic scores and improvisation to create group compositions.
