The Concordia String Trio will present “Serenades and Such” at 7 p.m. on Friday, March 16 at First-Plymouth Congregational Church in Lincoln and it will include two premieres. The program will begin and end with serenades. The Beethoven Serenade in D Major and the Dohnanyi Serenade are two of the great string trio masterworks. The other two pieces on the program are works by nationally recognized American composers Tom Larson, UNL composition professor, and Andrew List, composition professor at the Berklee College of Music in Boston. The Concordia String Trio will give the world premiere of Tom Larson’s piece Nine, inspired by the song Perfect Drug by the band Nine Inch Nails, and the Six Bagatelles of Andrew List will be the Nebraska premiere. Both composers will be present for the performance. Members of the Concordia String Trio are violinist Marcia Henry Liebenow, concertmaster of the Peoria Symphony and violinist on the faculty at Bradley University, Leslie Perna, viola professor at the University of Missouri and violist of the Esterhazy Quartet, and UNL cello professor and principal cellist of Lincoln’s Symphony, Karen Becker.

The Concordia String Trio includes cellist Karen Becker, professor of cello in the Glenn Korff School of Music (UNL) and principal cellist of the Lincoln Symphony Orchestra; violinist Marcia Henry Liebenow, Concertmaster of the Peoria Symphony Orchestra and faculty member at Bradley University; and violist Leslie Perna professor of viola and member of the Esterhazy Quartet at the University of Missouri-Columbia.

The Concordia String Trio explores and expands the eclectic repertoire of an under-appreciated genre—the string trio. The Trio has also been resident ensemble at the Warebrook Contemporary Music Festival, and recorded a Capstone CD entitled “90’s Timeflow – Chamber Music of Alan Schmitz.”

This spring, the Concordia String Trio will be presenting concerts throughout the Midwest. Their new recording, Viennese String Trios, was released in August 2017 on the Centaur label, and their latest CD, American Vistas, will be released in 2018, also with Centaur. Copies of both CDs will be available for purchase at the concert.
