Nebraska Concerts

Sunday August 28th on Nebraska Concerts

We'll hear a concert from the Arts for the Soul series in Lincoln, featuring singer Laurie Rubin with pianist Jennifer Taira. The performance was given at First Presbyterian Church in Lincoln and was divided into two parts, one primarily classical and the other filled with pop or light classical music.

On the classical side, we'll hear composers like Faure, Bizet, Sibelius and Meyerbeer, and on the lighter side, music by composers like Gershwin, Sondheim, Rogers and Hammerstein, and even Leonard Cohen.

Rubin is not only a singer, but also a jewelry designer, author, speaker and skier, and all in spite of the fact that she was born blind. You can learn more here in an interview with Rubin from NET's weekly Friday LIVE Extra podcast.
