Kimball Recital Hall and the UNL School of Music to present free events in 2011

The School of Music offers most of its events at the Kimball Recital Hall (KRH) located at 11th and R streets on the UNL city campus. KRH, with a main floor and balcony, seats 850 audience members. Music majors are always to be found in attendance, but other members of the Lincoln community should take advantage of it as well.

The first recital being given this season takes place on Tuesday, August 30th, in KRH at 7:30pm. The talented and entrepreneurial pianist, Ann Chang, is giving this recital. Besides having performed in various cities in the US, Chang has performed abroad at such places as Spain, The Netherlands, Belgium, Italy, Russia, Croatia and Argentina. Her recital is a not-too-be-missed performance.

In the month of September, free-admission faculty recitals will feature some of the following: mezzo-soprano Kate Butler on Friday, September 9th; Jonah Sirota, violist, on September 15th; Kevin Hanrahan, tenor, on September 22nd; Scott Anderson, trombone, September 27th, and William McMullen, oboe, on September 29th. All of those recitals are on the dates specified at 7:30pm in KRH. On Sunday, September 18th, Clark Potter, viola, will give a recital at 3:00pm in KRH

One other special recital will be given by the Chiara String Quartet, Artists-in-Residence at the School of Music, will take place on Tuesday, September 20th at 7:30pm in KRH and will cost $20 for adults, $10 for seniors, and $5 for students. This recital is well worth the price and enjoyable for all ages as the Chiara Quartet make the music come alive.
