Passing through the Plains- Selections from the Permanent Collection of the Kimmel Harding Nelson Center for the Arts- Brought to you by the Conell Family &Jerry Remus Chevrolet and Cadillac.

Event Dates and Times

North Platte
This selection from the permanent collection of the Kimmel Harding Nelson Center for the Arts features works that demonstrate the significant impact a change of location can have on the artistic process. Artists from across the country and around the world visit the small riverside town in the Great Plains through their artist in residence program. They are inevitably influenced by this new environment. Some artists engage directly with the location, community, and history, while others find that limitations of travel and new facilities create modifications and problem-solving strategies that add to their long-term practice.

These works represent a broad spectrum of the creative process, including works developed prior to the residency, experiments while in residence and projects that are completed much later, but initially instigated at Kimmel’s residency program.

The Kimmel Harding Nelson Center for the Arts is an artists’ residency program in Nebraska City, NE. They offer living and studio accommodations to writers, composers, visual and interdisciplinary artists on a competitive basis. Residency programs are often referred to as “gifts of time and space.” Artists travel to a host location, where they have a concentrated period of time to turn their sole focus to their creative endeavor. While the initial lure of a residency is often uninterrupted time, residencies often do disrupt a creative practice – constructively -- through the influence of place.

“Dream” concert - MPCC

Event Dates and Times

McDonald-Belton Theater on NPCC’s South Campus
Hope, inspiration, motivation – music students at North Platte Community College want to leave their audience will all of those feelings on March 9. They will perform at 7 p.m. in the McDonald-Belton Theater on NPCC’s South Campus. The concert is free and open to the public. “This time around, our students have chosen the theme, ‘Dreams’,” said Elizabeth Peters, music instructor. “The goal is to encourage those who hear the music to look out and beyond and realize that their dreams really can take them to new places.” Songs have been carefully selected to support that theme. They include, Roy Orbison’s “Dream,” from the “You’ve Got Mail” soundtrack, “The River of Dreams,” by Billy Joel and “Hallelujah,” written by Canadian singer Leonard Cohen. “The students will be doing the latest Pentatonix version of ‘Hallelujah’,” said Peters. “It’s amazing and, because Cohen just recently passed away, it will be a little nod to the composition of the piece.” The jazz ensemble will perform the R&B song, “My Shot,” from the musical “Hamilton,” and the concert choir will sing “The Impossible Dream” from “Man of La Mancha.” Peters said the latter has been a really good song for the choir to work on. “One of the lines that I was talking to students about in rehearsal was, ‘And the world will be better for this’,” said Peters. “I want to encourage them to keep reaching, even after graduation, even though, sometimes, chasing our dreams and accomplishing the things we want can take our last ounce of courage.” Peters will direct the concert and select choirs while Ron Daly directs the jazz ensemble and Carmen Allen directs the chamber ensemble. Allen will also serve as collaborative accompanist. “It will be a great concert,” said Peters. “We have a new combination of students every semester with a tremendous amount of talent. Community members will have a chance to hear both instrumentally and vocally what the NPCC Music Department is doing and accomplishing. It’s pretty awesome.” The North Platte Community College concert choir will be among the groups performing during a “Dreams” concert March 9 at the McDonald-Belton Theater on NPCC’s South Campus. The concert is free and open to the public. For more information contact Heather Johnson at 308-535-3642.
