KU School of Music presents Annual Scholarship Concert at Lied Center on February 21

Monday, February 16, 2015

LAWRENCE - The University of Kansas School of Music proudly presents the Annual Scholarship Concert at 7:30 p.m. on Sat. February 21 at the Lied Center of Kansas. Tickets are $13.50 for adults and $11 for children, seniors and students. Tickets can be purchased at the Lied Center Ticket Office, by phone at 785-864-2787 or online at www.lied.ku.edu. The concert will also be streamed live at http://new.livestream.com/liedcenter/som-feb21-14.

As in previous years, the annual event features the KU Choirs and Symphony Orchestra. The Scholarship Concert highlights the need for support of music scholarships at KU and honors scholarship donors who make those student opportunities possible. It is also a chance for scholarship donors to interact with the students they generously support. 

"The Scholarship Concert is an opportunity for us to showcase the talent of our exceptional students,” said School of Music Dean Robert Walzel. "The performance is also a way for our generous scholarship donors to see the impact that their gifts have made in the lives of our students.”

The concert program features Nänie, Op. 82 by Johannes Brahms, conducted by Paul Tucker, director of choral activities, and The Planets, Op. 32 by Gustav Holst, conducted by David Neely, director of orchestral activities. Mariana Farah, associate director of choral activities, will conduct the women’s choir for VII. Neptune, the Mystic.
