Lincoln Friends of Chamber Music and the Glenn Korff School of Music will join forces in a concert to present the world premiere of “Time and the River.” Composed by Dr. Kurt Knecht, the work is inspired by and incorporates the images from the Platte Basin Timelapse project of Michael Forsberg and Michael Farrell.

The concert is at 7:30 p.m. April 27, 2019, at Kimball Recital Hall, 1113 R St, Lincoln, NE 68588. Tickets, $15 for the general audience and $5 for students, are available at the Nebraska Maps and More Store in the first-floor lobby of Hardin Hall. They also are available at the Lied Box Office.

“Time and the River” will be conducted by Knecht and performed by nine members of the Glenn Korff School of Music — The Moran Woodwind Quintet: John Bailey, flute; Alan Mattingly, Horn; Diane Barger, clarinet; Jeffrey McCray, bassoon; William McMullen, oboe; David Neely, violin; Clark Potter, viola; Karen Becker, cello and Hans Sturm, bass.

The music will be integrated with time-lapse images from the project to work as a single, immersive piece of art expressing the Platte River through performance.

The program will include performance of additional chamber works by the GKSOM faculty.
