Lincoln Symphony (NB) to open season with grunge-inspired clarinet concerto

Symphony to open season with grunge-inspired work.

Composer Scott McAllister recognized the late Kirk Cobain's talent (grunge band Nirvana), using Cobain's rendition of "Where Did You Sleep Last Night" for his "X - Concerto for Clarinet."

"I hope that our audience can appreciate the ingenuity of this concerto and understand that composers and musicians can be inspired from all types of musical, cultural and artistic influences in the creation of their work," clarinet soloist Diane Barger said.
