The CSC Music Department received a generous anonymous donation to commission a new composition for the CSC Concert Choir that will be premiered by the combined choirs of Concert Choir, Community Choir, and Ogallala High School on Sunday, April 15. Dr. Joel Schreuder, CSC music faculty member, worked with Lincoln composer David von Kampen to complete the commission. Dr. von Kampen has composed a set of three pieces based on original poetry by Becky Boesen, another Nebraskan. The set of pieces is titled “Three Nebraska Lyrics” and the three individual titles are “On the Ridge,” “Underneath,” and “The Planting Season.” The Community Choir will also be performing a program of music that inspires peace and harmony in the world.
