In addition to being Nebraska's premier international chamber music festival, Meadowlark has a long history of supporting art. This year Meadowlark is partnering with LPS to host a free Art Competition. LPS Senior High School Art Teachers have been informed of the competition and posters have been distributed. Students only need to submit their completed artwork to their teacher by the end of the fall, 2014 semester. Meadowlark will contact each teacher and come to the school to pick up the art and submit it to the jury.

Founded in 2000, winner of the 2006 Governor’s Arts Award and called “the festival to watch” by Chamber Music America, the Meadowlark Music Festival is returning to Lincoln after a year-long hiatus in 2012.

For over 10 years the Meadowlark Music Festival has been Nebraska’s premier international summer chamber music festival bringing world-class artists to unique settings across the city of Lincoln from the International Quilt Museum to the Sunken Garden to the skyboxes at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s Memorial Stadium. Performers are likewise diverse and have included such international talents as the Grammy-nominated Chiara String Quartet, the Australian Guitar Duo, the Rastrelli Cello Quartet, and the Boston Brass. Concerts are family friendly and musicians come to perform and interact with audiences and talented students. Please join us this summer and enhance your happiness!
