Korff School alumnus makes his Carnegie Hall debut

Lincoln, Neb.--Glenn Korff School of Music alumnus Marcelo Lian performed a 90-minute recital at Carnegie Hall in New York City on Oct. 17 after receiving honorable mention in the Progressive Musicians competition. 

“It was mind blowing, because as you can imagine, it is a dream for musicians to perform there,” Lian said. “But it was also the fact that I achieved that as an immigrant is what made the experience so emotional. My mental preparation made me try to convince myself it is ‘just another performance’ so I wouldn’t freak out before going on stage.”
