 So it’s not really surprising that she took a love to composing. Gilmore is one of many music composition program students at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Glenn Korff School of Music who will have their ability showcased at the Wet Ink performances on November 12 and 13 in the Westbrook Music Building, Room 119. Both nights’ performances start at 7:30 p.m.
