The UNI School of Music Guild of Carillonneurs participated in a worldwide collaborative live performance and world premiere of a new composition for carillon on November 13, 2019. The event, planned as part of the launch of the 2019 Nordic Music Days held in Norway, grew into a worldwide event when composer Ellen Lindquist began reaching out to churches, colleges and towns throughout the world, inviting them to participate in the global premiere of her new work “The Sacredness of Trees” for carillon.
The School of Music is thrilled to announce that Brenda Sevcik has been awarded the 2018-19 Presser Undergraduate Scholar Award, for her performance of Bach’s Prelude and Fugue in D major at the Spotlight Competition Finale on April 3, 2019. A native of Cedar Falls, IA, Brenda is currently a junior at UNI, where she is a double major in Music Education and Instrumental Performance. The Presser Award is an amazing achievement, and a testament to Brenda’s accomplishments.
