Wallace student featured in Kearney orchestra concert PDF Print E-mail

Brooke Harris, a 2008 graduate of Wallace High School and a current student at the University of Nebraska-Kearney, will be featured in a concert given by the Kearney Symphony Orchestra.
As a winner of UNK’s Concerto/Aria competition, Brooke receives the privilege to perform as a flute soloist, accompanied by the orchestra.
She will perform Franz Doppler’s Fantaisie Pastorale Hongroise (Hungarian Pastoral Fantasy), in the orchestra’s March 1 concert at 7:30 p.m. in the UNK Fine Arts Recital Hall. The piece has a duration of 11 minutes.
Brooke is the daughter of Scott and Deb Harris. She studied flute with Vicki Windham of North Platte in high school before attending UNK, where she studies with Franziska Nabb.
“I have greatly enjoyed working on this piece of music,” she said. “My goal is that my gratitude to all who have helped me musically develop shines through in the notes.”
Doppler takes the listener on a journey by beginning with a mysterious melody and taking an uplifting, lyrical break before blazing to an exciting finish.
The orchestra will also feature soprano Elizabeth Peters of North Platte in an aria by Verdi and UNK piano faculty Dr. Nathan Buckner in a piano concerto by Tchaikovsky.
Tickets can be reserved by calling the UNK Box Office at 308-865-8417.
