We enthusiastically welcome you to a new year at the Glenn Korff School of Music, our 125th year! As you page through this booklet and learn more about us, we want you to know that though we love sharing our artistic talents with you, we do so much more than performances and we have quite a history to back that up!
We want you to know we strive to continue to make an impact in Lincoln, Nebraska, across the country, and across the expanses of the world. We want you to know we do that through teaching the next generation of students at many levels, from students in the UNL/LPS String Project to our PhD students, high school students who come to our camps to our alumni in the schools, causing a ripple effect across the nation and world.
We want you to know we do that through research on many levels, looking into the impacts— the how’s and the why’s in the world of music and dance. We have students winning competitions based on thorough research, as well as faculty investing their time and expertise, including writing books, blogs and papers. They also present their findings through presentations and performances across the world including in Italy, Japan, China and South Korea.
We also make an impact through outreach. Our Opera program has taken to the roads of Nebraska and performed in towns such as Ord and Red Cloud. This fall, we will be premiering an Opera in Cozad. Our Chamber Music program performed in many retirement communities across Lincoln. Our Jazz program went on a tour of China. In the spring of 2020, many from our Vocal program will travel to France. We want to make the whole state, country and world to know that we are your University program, and we will continue to do so more and more!
We are so proud to be the Glenn Korff School of Music. We will continue to uphold the highest standards of excellence in teaching, research and outreach. So, please, grab a cup of coffee or tea and maybe a stack of post-its and peruse through this year’s Calendar of Events and mark the items you want to attend. Many of our events are free to the public, and we encourage you to come see ALL that we have to offer to Lincoln, Nebraska, and the world! Come celebrate our 125th year with us!
