1. Other Channels

           Other Channels explores a history of the Missouri River through a century of USGS water data, historical maps, and community research. Composed and arranged for a non-traditional string quartet from the Omaha Symphony (Violin: Lucy Duke, Cello: InYoung Park, Bass: Bobby Scharmann, Violist: Bozhidar Shopov). The work was performed while cruising the river on an open air boat together with the audience and a panel of locals (featuring Shannon Bartelt-Hunt, Professor and Chair in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Nebraska; Jack Phillips, naturalist, poet, nature writer, and founder of The Naturalist School; and Don Moses, retired Civil Engineer, U.S.). World premiere commissioned by Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts.
