CONCERT INFORMATION

Dear LSO family,

FAVORITES OLD & NEW.......................10-11

During this season when we are only able to fit

a small percentage of our orchestra onstage due

to the constraints of physical distancing, LSO has

made the commitment to continue to pay every

musician their full salary, even though they can’t

all fit onstage. Your annual fund support will

allow us to honor this commitment. Below are

comments from a few musicians about how much

this means to them:

• “LSO’s commitment to and support of our

family of musicians has been a cornerstone of the

organization. Nothing shows this better than the

incredible step that LSO has taken in paying all

the musicians this year. It is such a beautiful thing

- it brings tears to my eyes to think of what this

means for us all.”

• “Kudos to LSO (and especially to LSO’s loyal

donors) for making sure LSO is in a financially

secure position to be able to do this. You guys

blow us away.”

• “During this trying and stressful time for everyone, we’re so grateful for LSO’s support. It is

truly remarkable.”

• “I LOVE this orchestra!! I am so grateful to LSO for making such an effort to keep all our

musicians employed. We really appreciate it.”

• “It means so much to me that our symphony family is really looking out for its musicians. In

an age where arts organizations are really struggling, I love that LSO is so worried about our

musicians’ well-being. Thank you so much!”

• “This isn’t only about compensation; it sends us a message that our community values the

arts and values us and wants to see us get through this pandemic. It’s been hard on us not

playing together; it chips away at the essence of who we are. And when this pandemic is over,

we will be bursting with joy to get on that stage and share our gifts with you.”

EDWARD POLOCHICK MUSIC DIRECTOR

Petersburg Symphony (Russia), and the State

of Mexico Symphony Orchestra (Mexico).

EDWARD POLOCHICK, MUSIC DIRECTOR

Edward Polochick, Music Director of Lincoln's

Symphony Orchestra since 1998, has expanded

LSO’s music series through innovative classical

music programs, family concerts, pops concerts,

and July 4th events like the Uncle Sam Jam.

For 31 years, he served as Artistic Director of

Concert Artists of Baltimore, an all-professional

chamber orchestra and vocal ensemble of eighty

musicians which he founded in 1987. Maestro

Polochick served on the faculty of the Peabody

Conservatory of Music in Baltimore from 1979

to 2020 in a multitude of conducting positions

including Associate Conductor of Orchestras,

Director of Choral Ensembles, and Opera

Conductor. Not only is he widely recognized as

a conductor, but is an award-winning pianist

and harpsichordist and regularly conducts from

the keyboard with Concert Artists, the Baltimore

Symphony Orchestra, and Lincoln’s Symphony

Orchestra. He has also appeared as piano soloist

with the Philadelphia Orchestra and the Los

Angeles Chamber Orchestra under the direction of

Sir Neville Marriner.

Since winning the first Leopold Stokowski

Conducting Award in 1978 and, as a result,

conducting the Philadelphia Orchestra, he

continues to attract world-wide attention as

an orchestral, choral, and operatic conductor.

In addition to conducting the Philadelphia and

Baltimore Symphony Orchestras, his guest

appearances include the Houston Symphony,

Chautauqua Symphony, the Opera Company

of Philadelphia, Omaha Symphony, Jacksonville

Symphony, Charleston (SC) Symphony

Orchestra, Aalborg Symphony (Denmark),

Daejeon Philharmonic (South Korea), St.

2

From 1979-1999, Mr. Polochick was on the

conducting staff of the Baltimore Symphony

Orchestra as Director of the Symphony Chorus,

founder and director of the Baltimore Symphony

Chorus Chamber Singers, and frequent guest

conductor. During his tenure with the BSO, he

established annual Holiday Pops and Messiah

performances which have remained Baltimore

holiday traditions for nearly three decades. In the

summer of 1987, Mr. Polochick was conductor

of the Musicisti Americani Summer Festival

in Sulmona, Italy. In the autumn of that same

year, he conducted the Peabody Symphony

Orchestra in Moscow, the first appearance of

an American student orchestra in the Soviet

Union. In recognition of the Moscow tour,

Mr. Polochick received an ASCAP Award for

Adventurous Programming of American Music.

In 2000, Mr. Polochick received the Peggy and

Yale Gordon Achievement Award and was made

an honorary member of the Baltimore Music Club.

Two years later, he was awarded the coveted

Johns Hopkins University Distinguished Alumnus

Award. In 2004, he was named Baldwin Scholar at

the University of Notre Dame of Maryland where

he held lectures, demonstrations, and panels on

the creative act of music. He was awarded the

‘Keys to the City’ by Lincoln’s Mayor Coleen Seng

in 2007, and in 2010 received a commission

from Nebraska Governor David Heineman as an

Admiral in the Nebraska Navy. In 2011, he was

the only American to serve as an adjudicator for

the Rosa Ponselle International Vocal Competition

in Caiazzo, Italy.

Mr. Polochick is frequently asked to share his

knowledge and love of music at various lecture

series, adjudications, and radio broadcasts. Each

year renowned broadcaster, Marc Steiner, invites

him to co-host his radio program in Baltimore,

celebrating music of the holiday season. He is

also a regular panelist on Face the Music, a radio

review program of recordings hosted by Jonathan

Palevsky of WBJC-FM, Baltimore. For nearly two

decades, he and Mr. Palevsky have been cohosting

WBJC’s annual Christmas Program.

Although Mr. Polochick resides in Baltimore, he

considers Lincoln to be his second home. On each

visit he contributes to the community through

LSO’s public performances, school visits,

workshops, master classes, and other educational

activities, making classical music accessible to

everyone in Lincoln.

CLASSICAL FAVORITES OLD & NEW

Orchestra, the National Symphony Orchestra,

and other ensembles.

Tyler G. White, Composer-in-Residence

Tyler Goodrich White has been Director of

Orchestras at the University of Nebraska-

Lincoln since 1994 and a member of the

composition faculty at UNL since 1996; before

coming to Nebraska, White led orchestras

at Cornell University and Trinity University

(Texas). In 2004, he was a guest lecturer in

Beijing, China, and in September 2007 he was

named Best Musical Director at the Waterford

International Festival of Light Opera in

Waterford, Ireland. Recent seasons have seen

additional guest conducting engagements in

Mexico, Brazil, and China. He has also been

Resident Conductor of Lincoln’s Symphony

Orchestra (2000-2019) and is currently the

orchestra’s Composer-in-Residence.

White was born in Atlanta, Georgia and was

raised in Manhattan, Kansas. After graduating

Phi Beta Kappa from the University of North

Carolina-Chapel Hill, he earned his master’s

and doctoral degrees in composition from

Cornell University, studying with Pulitzer

Prize-winners Steven Stucky and Karel

Husa. He has also studied at the University

of Copenhagen (Denmark) and the American

Conservatory at Fontainebleau (France).

National and international recognition for his

compositions has come through awards from

ASCAP, BMI, The American Conservatory at

Fontainebleau (Prix Maurice Ravel), Vienna

Modern Masters, the Omaha Symphony

Guild, Tulane University, Indiana State

University, and the Southeastern Composers

League, and through commissions from the

Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, the Cleveland

In 1997, White’s cello concerto Threnos

(William Schuman in memoriam) became the

first work by a Nebraskan to win the Omaha

Symphony’s International New Music

Competition, and in 1999 his opera O Pioneers,

the first-ever operatic treatment of a Willa

Cather novel, was premiered at UNL and

televised on Nebraska Public Television. In

2001, Dr. White was named Composer of the

Year by the Nebraska Music teachers

Association. In 2003, White’s Elegy “for the

orphans of terror” was awarded the

Masterworks Prize and was recorded by the

Sofia Philharmonic on the inaugural volume of

ERM Media’s “Masterworks of the New Era” CD

series, and in 2006 his Mystic Trumpeter

(Symphony No. 2) was awarded Honorable

Mention in the ASCAP Foundation/Rudolf

Nissim Prize competition. In 2014, the newly

revised O Pioneers was awarded a Silver Medal

in the Global Music Prize competition and was

named a finalist for the American Music Prize.

In 2017, White was awarded an Individual

Artist Fellowship by the Nebraska Arts Council.

White’s latest opera, The Gambler’s Son

(libretto by Laura White, based on writings of

Mari Sandoz and Robert Henri), premiered in

MEET THE MUSICIANS

LINDSAY WILEY, OBOE

What advice do you have for someone who

wants to learn your instrument?

Make sure to get private lessons! Oboe

is tough but really rewarding if you have

someone to guide you from the beginning.

Also, reed-making is something you will likely

experience if you play it through high school

and definitely beyond!

Tell us about your pre-concert routine.

I LOVE to go eat pho, which is a Vietnamese

noodle soup, a few hours before a concert.

Gets the brain functioning and centers me for

optimum focus. I also like to seclude myself

from others and run the music through my

head instead of practicing with the oboe.

What orchestral work have you never

performed live, but have always wanted to?

I would absolutely love to perform Mahler’s

Das Lied von der Erde. It has beautiful

woodwind lines, especially for oboe and

English horn.

What is your favorite popular artist, band, or

genre?

Radiohead has to be one of if not my favorite

non-classical artist out there. So many it’s

hard to choose, and I love lots of artists from

lots of genres, so not sure I can pick one

genre—but old-school hip hop is definitely up

there!

Tell us about your favorite memory from

working with LSO.

I had the opportunity to perform Respighi’s

Pines of Rome on English horn, which has a

super cool solo in the final movement I got to

perform with my LSO family a few years ago.

It was magic!!!

KIMBERLY BEASLEY, HORN

What advice do you have for someone who

wants to learn your instrument?

Music should be fun. Horn should be fun. Treat

the horn as an extension of yourself and

sing through it in whatever fashion speaks

to you. It can be hard work too, but each

breakthrough in skills opens a new world of

musical experiences.

Tell us about your pre-concert routine.

My pre-concert routine is easy: 1. Put the horn

together. 2. Blow a couple notes through the

little end to be sure sound comes out the big

end. 3. Head for the stage, but don’t forget the

music in your case.

What orchestral work have you never

performed live, but have always wanted to?

Mendelssohn’s Third Symphony. Fun horn

parts, fun everything parts … it just makes me

happy.

Tell us about your favorite memory from

working with LSO.

I absolutely love this orchestra, so almost

every opportunity to play with LSO becomes

a favorite memory. I'll pick two instead. One

was a concert at St. Paul's. The program

featured a bunch of beautiful solo/melody

lines doubled between principal cello and

3rd horn (thank you composers!), and I got to

soloistically blend with the cello sound much

of the evening—very satisfying. The other

was a Halloween concert several years ago.

I got to dress up in my mother's wedding

dress and "process" every time I entered or

left stage as if walking down the aisle. Making

Ed Polochick crack up and almost lose it as

he looked back and realized he was cueing a

bride was worth the effort. Seeing my dad's

reaction to his daughter wearing his wife's

wedding dress on stage was priceless too.

14


MEET THE MUSICIANS

ELIZABETH GRUNIN, CELLO

What advice do you have for someone who

wants to learn your instrument?

Get a good teacher, someone who will do a very

thorough job with posture and arm placement.

Tell us about your pre-concert routine.

Before the concert I check my clock about five

thousand times to make sure I am on time, and

panic about maybe getting the time wrong, and

worry about a time change. I call my stand partner

to check the call time, and other times, she calls me.

I eat a light snack, usually a banana.

If you could play any other instrument in the

orchestra, what would it be and why?

I would play the harp. It is such a magical

instrument.

What orchestral work have you never performed

live, but have always wanted to?

I would like to play Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana or

Verdi’s Aida.

When you’re not practicing, what do you do in

your spare time?

I teach music at my studio, give online lectures, knit

shawls, swim, and take my dogs and cat on walks.

.

LINDA CALVERT, VIOLIN

How long have you played your instrument?

I started playing the violin in 5th grade and

joined the LSO in 12th grade. This is my 49th

year with the LSO.

If you could play any other instrument in the

orchestra, what would it be and why?

When I was very young, I wanted to play

percussion (like my big brother) or flute.

My mother wanted me to play violin for 2

reasons: 1) they will need more violinists than

percussionists or flutes, and 2) she insisted

it be a small instrument because she was

tired of helping load and unload my brother’s

drums.

When you’re not practicing, what do you do

in your spare time?

My background includes human resources,

real estate, and property management. I

spend a great amount of time restoring and

landscaping my 1940 home.

CHUNYANG WANG, BASS

How long have you played your instrument?

22 years. Fun fact, I’m the third generation to play

the bass in my family.

When you’re not practicing, what do you do in

your spare time?

I enjoy cooking a lot, and spending time with my

wife, Anne, and daughter, Zoe.

What advice do you have for someone who

wants to learn your instrument?

Have a big car and be OK with random people

asking you if you had wished to play the piccolo!

What is your favorite popular artist, band, or

genre?

I love going back to my favorite bands from high

school—Green Day and Linkin Park—and I also

really enjoy artists like Imogen Heap and Halsey.

Tell us about your favorite memory from working

with LSO.

I would have to say last year’s Russian Dances. I

love Shostakovich, so getting to play the Chamber

Symphony for the first time WITH added dancers

was awesome!

ENSURING THE FUTURE

OF OUR SYMPHONY

WHAT IS THE ENCORE CLUB?

LSO’S ENCORE CLUB is made up of individuals who

have included LSO in their estate planning documents.

A PLANNED GIFT TO LINCOLN’S SYMPHONY

ORCHESTRA allows you to ensure that LSO serves our

community for generations to come. LSO works with the

Lincoln Symphony Orchestra Foundation, which exists

to manage endowment gifts. Proceeds are directly used

to benefit LSO, and account for 12% of LSO’s operating

budget. The LSO Foundation has assets of $3 million,

and LSO receives earnings each year based on the

current market value of the assets. Consider making a

planned gift today.

Your Lincoln City Libraries card gives you free access to

sheet music, recordings and more, for all genres of music.

M u s i c L i b r a r y

A one-of-a-kind resource providing information and expertise.

THE CRESCENDO CLUB

SUPPORTING LSO’S GROWTH

LSO is thrilled to invite you to join our new support organization,

The Crescendo Club!

For $100/person ($200/couple), you can help support the work

that LSO does onstage and in the community.

Sign up today, and the perk of membership is that you’re invited to select

one home party to attend during the year. Each of the parties is an afterwork

gathering of friends, hosted by LSO supporters. Enjoy wine, snacks,

and the company of others who love LSO. Maestro Polochick and one of our

musicians will give a short musical performance, and LSO Executive Director

Barbara Zach Lee will distribute LSO’s annual report and give a brief update

on the activities of the orchestra.
