Lincoln Symphony announces 2010-11 season

Posted on: May 14, 2010

In Friday’s (5/14) Lincoln Journal Star (Nebraska), Jeff Korbelik writes, “Lincoln’s Symphony Orchestra’s 2010-11 season will feature contemporary music, timeless classics, a trombonist painting virtual pictures and a live recording. The season begins Sept. 17 in Kimball Recital Hall when the orchestra celebrates Schumann and Mendelssohn’s 200th anniversaries. The evening also will include Scott McAllister’s ‘X – Concerto for Clarinet,’ a tribute to the music of Generation X created by such artists as Nirvana and Alice in Chains. The piece will spotlight principal clarinetist Diane Barger. ‘I’m so excited about this,’ LSO music director Edward Polochick said. ‘It’s a very unusual piece. Scott has had different musical influences. He has developed his own musical language.’ … Since the orchestra sold out recent concerts featuring movie music and Locke, ‘we thought we kind of cross over into both of those worlds,’ Polochick said.”
