The University of Nebraska Brass Quintet will be performing two works by composer Bruce Broughton, including the premiere of “NeBRASSka,” co-commissioned by the Glenn Korff School of Music and the Lied Center for Performing Arts, at their next concert on Monday, March 17 at 7:30 p.m. in the Sheldon Gallery Auditorium. It is free and open to the public.
Broughton will be on campus to work with composition students in the Glenn Korff School of Music and to conduct a masterclass with the University of Nebraska Brass Quintet.
The University of Nebraska Brass Quintet includes Hixson-Lied Professor Scott Anderson, trombone; Artist-in-Resident K. Craig Bircher, trumpet; Senior Lecturer Craig Fuller, tuba; Professor Alan Mattingly, horn; and Artist-in-Resident Scott Quackenbush, trumpet.
One of the most versatile composers working today, Broughton writes in every medium, from theatrical releases, TV and feature films to the concert stage and computer games. He received an Oscar nomination for his first major film score, “Silverado,” and he has received more than 20 Emmy nominations and won 10, including most recently for HBO’s “Warm Springs.”
