Sheldon Friends of Chamber Music | Amernet String Quartet

The Amernet String Quartet brings a world premiere of Steven Gerber’s String Quartet No. 6 and the composer will be present for the concert. Gerber composed the “Fanfare for the Voice of A-M-E-R-I-C-A” that helped inaugurate the Holland Performing Arts Center in Omaha and previously composed his String Quartet No. 5 for the Amernet String Quartet. This is a rare event and a fitting conclusion to a rare 50th anniversary year. The evening will also include works by Haydn and Brahms. The concert is Saturday, May 2, 2015 at 7:30 pm at the Sheldon Museum of Art, north of 12th and R Streets, on the campus of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Tickets are $25 for general admission and $5 for students. A pre-concert lecture on the musical program will begin at 7 pm. A reception will be held immediately following the concert. Musical programs are subject to change at the discretion of the artists. For more information go to www.sfcm.info.
