BUILDING UPON A RICH PAST AS WE BUILD BEAUTIFUL VOICES FOR THE FUTURE
A message from Dr. Eklund
It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the website for the University of Nebraska-Lincoln choral area. This site features a small sample of the tremendous growth we’ve experienced in Lincoln over the past few years. With the advent of our doctoral program, we now boast a comprehensive – if not the most comprehensive – collegiate choral program in the US. Our outstanding alumni and their accomplishments additionally demonstrate the breadth, depth, and scope of our choir program.
Located in the very center of the United States, in one of America’s finest, cleanest, safest, and most livable cities (and recently named the top "college-town in America," the University’s proximity—and aligned with local and regional offering and opportunities) makes our accessibility a true asset and an advantage. Our competitive tuition and additional stipends makes Lincoln especially attractive. When comparing college experiences, it is clearly possible to pay less to attend another college and get less. It is also possible to pay a great deal more still obtain less. If a student can pay less than one might invest to attend the University of Nebraska–Lincoln and gain more, I always advise a student to pursue that path.
Thanks for giving us a look and a listen.
With admiration and respect,
Peter A. Eklund, DMA
