UWRF Czech Music Celebration (World Premiere)

May 3 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

$2 - $8

The UW-River Falls Symphony Band is thrilled to announce a special May “Czech Celebration” concert in honor of the 2018 Czech anniversaries, featuring the music of Czech-Slovak and Czech-American composers. UWRF has also commissioned an original piece just for this concert by the nationally recognized, emerging Wisconsin composer Jacob Beranek, who has Czech heritage. Beranek, who is 19 years old and hails from Oconomowoc, has been significantly influenced by the Czech musical tradition, is excited to premiere this work with conductor Dr. Kris Tjornehoj and the extremely talented UWRF Symphony Band. It is his hope that this piece is a fitting tribute to Czech history.
