UNK New Music Series and Festival

In the fall semester of 2014, I began working at the University of Nebraska at Kearney. I wanted to augment the annual UNK New Music Festival with a series of guest artist recitals, and so the UNK New Music Series and Festival was created. Season 1, Concert 1 was on February 28, 2015, and featured Quince Contemporary Vocal Ensemble.

Since its inception, the UNK New Music Series and Festival has featured many prominent guest artists; the complete performance history is below. Until this year, the series was funded solely by grants and awards. In the summer of 2016, I worked to create a donation fund through the University of Nebraska Association. Now, anyone can donate to the UNK New Music Series and Festival and support our mission of bringing free concerts of new and experimental music to central Nebraska.

If you would like to donate to the UNK New Music Series and Festival, simply click the link below. The donation site for the University of Nebraska Association is in two steps: First, you’ll enter your email address (they won’t spam you). Second, you’ll be directed to a donation site where you can fill out all of the required information. This page is very similar to a Kickstarter page.

Unlike a Kickstarter page, they do not send me a direct notification of incoming donations. I check every Friday for updates, and so you’ll get a big thank you from me over the weekend.

Thank you for your support of the UNK New Music Series and Festival. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at donofrio.music@gmail.com or donofrioaj@unk.edu. I look forward to seeing you at our next event!
