Lincoln Community Foundation Garden

Join the Andy Hall Quartet for the first June concert of the 2014 Lincoln Community Foundation Garden Performance Series on Wednesday, June 4 from noon to 1:00 p.m.

Andy Hall is a professional bassist performing on both the acoustic and electric bass. Versatility is the key to his success playing with a wide variety of groups and in many different styles but his favorite style of music is jazz. He finds it the most challenging, yet the most musically rewarding. For the past twenty years, Hall has served as the personal bassist of nationally known jazz vocalist Marilyn Maye. While Andy and his family call Lincoln home, he spends a great deal of time on the road performing, teaching at jazz workshops, jazz camps, artist-in-residence programs and acts as an adjudicator for jazz festivals. Hall has performed concerts and taught workshops in Japan, Germany, and Denmark. Andy has recorded with Marilyn Maye, the Nebraska Jazz Orchestra, and the Jazz Factory. His past performance credits include appearances with Chuck Berry, Doc Severinsen, the Count Basie Orchestra, Rosemary Clooney, Peter Nero, Don Menza, Pete Christlieb, and numerous others.

Free and open to the public!

The Lincoln Community Foundation Garden is located at 1415 "N" Street in Lincoln.

Winner of the 2014 John Shildneck

Young Artist Competition

Lincoln, NE - The Lincoln Municipal Band is pleased to announce the winner of the 21st Annual John Shildneck Young Artist Competition. Claire Knaus, trombone, was selected from a group of finalists through a live audition held at Nebraska Wesleyan University's Emerson Recital Hall on Sunday, May 18, 2014. Claire will receive a $400 prize and perform with the Lincoln Municipal Band at the John Shildneck Memorial Bandshell in Antelope Park on Sunday, July 6, 2014 at 7:00 PM. Admission is FREE. The runner-up was Michael Hull, trumpet, a student of Dr. Dan Laing at Hastings College.

Claire Knaus grew up in Lisle, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago, and moved to Omaha when she was 12. In fifth grade she began playing trombone, and started studying privately with Jay Wise of the Omaha Symphony Orchestra before her freshman year of high school. She attended Elkhorn High School, graduating in 2013, where she participated in several honor bands, marching and symphonic band, and jazz band. Claire was also a member of the Omaha Area Youth Orchestra's Youth Philharmonic and Youth Symphony throughout high school.

At the University of Nebraska-Lincoln under the instruction of Dr. Scott Anderson she has completed her freshman year of college, again participating in several ensembles and contests. Music has always been a main focus in Claire's life. For fun, she plays guitar, sings, and writes music. She became a member of the Omaha Musicians' Association in 2013. She has also taken lessons with professionals such as Roger Rocco (Chicago Symphony Orchestra), James Olin (Baltimore Symphony Orchestra), Peter Ellefson (Indiana University, Chicago Smyphony Orchestra, and New York Philharmonic), and Thomas Ashworth (University of Minnesota and Kansas City Symphony Orchestra).

Claire is very close to her family. She has an older sister, a younger brother, and lives at home with her mom and step-dad when not at UNL. She spends her free time with her family and also enjoys dirt-biking, snowboarding, and running.

Runner-up Michael Hull is a senior at Hastings College, pursuing Bachelor of Music degrees in Trumpet Performance and Music Education, under the instruction of Dr. Daniel Laing. Michael serves as principal trumpet in several Hastings College musical groups, including Wind Ensemble, Symphonic Band, Jazz Band, and Brass Quintet. He also performs with the Hastings Symphony Orchestra, the Central Nebraska "Lessons and Carols" Festive Orchestra, the pit orchestras for Hastings College and Hastings Community Theater, and has served as a substitute for the Cathedral Brass Quintet. He enjoys the opportunity to perform as a soloist in the Hastings area.

Hull was the 2014 Nebraska Music Teachers Association (NMTA) Young Artist Brass Division winner, as well as the 2014 Music Teachers National Association (MTNA) Young Artist Brass Division State Level Runner-Up. He is a three-time member of the Nebraska State Bandmasters Association Collegiate Honor Band, serving as principal trumpet in 2014. Hull was the recipient of the Hastings College Elmer Christensen Award for outstanding instrumental musicianship, as well as the Hastings College Gordon Ohlsson Scholarship for music education. He was chosen as the 2014 Hastings College representative at the National Association for Music Educators (NAfME) Collegiate Recital.

Michael is a member of the International Trumpet Guild, Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia, MTNA, NAfME, Alpha Chi, and Omicron Delta Kappa. In 2015, Michael plans to attend graduate school, seeking a Masters of Music in Trumpet Performance. He is engaged to be married to Laura Sunderman following graduation.
