Friday Live Arts Magazine
On May 24th, William Stibor has Nebraska Shakespeare’s Vincent and Sarah Carlson-Brown announce and read this year’s winners of Nebraska Shakespeare’s Sonnet Writing Contest.
Amanda Mobley Guenther, Curator of Bone Creek Museum of Agrarian Art in David City, brings along one of the museum’s summer artists, Rod Bouc, to help offer a preview of Bouc’s and Charlene Potter’s joint exhibition, “Wild and Tangled: Foliage of the Plains.”
Some of the movers and shakers tell us all about the 17th Buffalo Commons Storytelling Festival in McCook on May 31st & June 1st.
Also, May 25th is the day for the annual Monumental Fiddling Championship at the Homestead National Monument near Beatrice, where the famous Civil War Reconciliation Quilt of 1867 is on loan from the International Quilt Study Center and Museum. We’ll get a preview.
And, join the Kronberg Ensemble on May 29th at Omaha’s First Presbyterian Church for their final concert of the season. “Walk Through The Woods” features Arnold Schoenberg's programmatic and surprisingly accessible string sextet, “Verklarte Nacht (Transfigured Night).” We’ll hear all about this concert.
Friday Live, a weekly arts magazine produced by William Stibor and Dave Hughes, and hosted by Stibor, usually broadcasts from The Mill coffee house in Lincoln's Haymarket district Fridays at 9 a.m. Central on all stations of NET Radio. If you can't catch the show in person, on the radio, or on the web, it is available later the same day as a podcast.
