UNK-The University of Nebraska at Kearney will hold the next Concerts-On-The-Platte featuring a faculty voice recital by Stephen Branch, assisted by Valerie Cisler on the piano. Cisler is a faculty member in the UNK Music Department. The concert will be held on Monday, January 29 at 8 p.m. in the Fine Arts Recital Hall.
The recital program will feature all Irish songs, both traditional and modern. “The recital will show the changes in the past 200 years in the Irish musical tradition, yet there is still aqsomething that ties it all together. This music and singing is very dear to me and I look forward to sharing it with everyone,” said Branch.
Branch, a tenor, has been featured in such venues as Opera Colorado, Opera San Benedetto of Chicago and the Colorado Lyric Theatre Festival and featured as a soloist with the Denver Chamber Orchestra and the Cedar Rapids Symphony. The Concerts-On-The-Platte series is sponsored by the UNK Department and Music and Performing Arts. Admission to the concert is free.
