Nebraska Concerts in August

Sunday afternoon, Aug 30, on Nebraska Concerts, hear American music performed by David Higgs, chair of the organ department at the Eastman School of Music.  He was the guest artist on a concert in October 2014 presented by Abendmusik at First Plymouth and the Lincoln Organ Showcase.  His program includes a cheeky setting of a spiritual, a taste of ragtime and a couple pieces by European composers.

Enjoy music from Nebraska’s stages on Nebraska Concerts this week and every Sunday afternoon, 1:00 to 3:00pm CT.
