The Frank House will be filled with music during the Tubas for Spring concert at the University of Nebraska at Kearney on Saturday, April 30.
Under the direction of Dr. Seth Fletcher, UNK low brass lecturer, the Loper Low Brass group will perform a spring concert. The concert will feature a number of patriotic songs including: “America,” “America the Beautiful” and “Battle Hymn of the Republic.” In addition, a variety of music such as “Prayer” by Beethoven and “Livin’ on a Prayer” by Jon Bon Jovi will also be performed.
The concert will begin at 1:30 p.m. at the UNK Frank House, which is located on the UNK West Campus. The program is free and open to the public; however, donations to the Frank House are always accepted.
According to Sarah Jones, Frank House director, the Franks loved music. George William Frank was in a men’s choir at the First Presbyterian Church, and the younger Franks often hosted dances at their home.
Tubas for Spring is one in a series of Saturdays at the Frank House. For more information on Saturdays at the Frank House events, visit: www.unk.edu/offices/frankhouse.
