Description: Lillian Sengpiehl’s unique interpretations and musicianship have kept her busy for a decade singing new and traditional works within the fields of opera, concert and musical theater. Sengpiehl received her Bachelor’s Degree in Theatre and Voice from the University of Kansas, performed with the KU Jazz Singers and sang the National Anthem and Alma Mater at Allen Fieldhouse. Sengpiehl was the recipient of the Brigit Nilsson Grant and was a finalist in the Midwest Metropolitan Opera Auditions. From KU, Sengpiehl moved to New York City to pursue graduate work at The Manhattan School of Music on scholarship, where she was the winner of the Classical Singer Competition at Weill Recital Hall. Sengpiehl’s unique interpretations and musicianship have led to a varied career. Equally dedicated to traditional and contemporary music, she has performed many classic roles with leading and regional opera companies, including New York City Opera, Opera Bastille, Bergen Norway Opera, St. Louis Opera, Virginia Opera and Los Angeles Opera. Although she began teaching ‘Opera in the Schools’ with the New York City Opera, her career as an educator blossomed when she moved to Los Angeles in 2005. She is currently the Musical Director for All About Kids, a performance program for at-risk youth. In addition, she teaches classical, Broadway and pop techniques for performers. Lillian’s newest project is a duo with acclaimed pianist Josh Nelson. Tickets are $16-$30. Submitted by: Madi Schulz Lied Center of Kansas

Description: David Zinman, guest conductor Stephen Waarts, violin (Underwritten by Almy Legacy Fund) BERNSTEIN Symphonic Suite from On the Waterfront PROKOFIEV Violin Concerto No. 2 SCHUMANN Symphony No. 2 This Kansas City Symphony concert opens with Bernstein’s atmospheric On the Waterfront Suite, which brings together the best moments of the iconic conductor/composer’s film score. Prokofiev’s Second Violin Concerto is a work of considerable charm and grace, demanding a virtuoso of the highest order. Schumann’s Second is one of his most personal statements, a work of unique beauty and power. Perhaps Schumann’s struggles are reflected in a work that moves from the agitation of the first two movements, to the haunting lyrical beauty of the third, to the triumphant finale. Tickets from $25.

Description: There is simply not enough praise that can be heaped on this singer-songwriter. NPR hailed him as one of the 10 Artists You Should Have Known in 2012, saying “it’s not every day a new artist…earns comparisons to great songwriters like Townes Van Zandt and Randy Newman, but Fullbright’s music makes sense in such lofty company.” Submitted by: Brad Guhr Dyck Arboretum of the Plains
