The Glenn Korff School of Music at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and the Robert Henri Museum and Art Gallery are delighted to present “Scenes from The Gambler’s Son,” a new opera by Tyler Goodrich White (composer) and Laura White (librettist).  The Gambler’s Son is adapted from Mari Sandoz’s 1960 novel, Son of the Gamblin’ Man, which tells the true story of the founding of Cozad, Nebraska, of its larger-than-life founder, John J. Cozad, and of Cozad’s son, the illustrious American painter, Robert Henri.  Singers from the Glenn Korff School of Music will present three scenes from the opera, with piano accompaniment, and the composer and librettist will be there to give brief remarks on the opera’s conception and design.  “Scenes from The Gambler’s Son” will be presented on Sunday, June 24th, at 2:00 p.m., at the First United Methodist Church, 1515 Avenue B., in Cozad.  The Gambler’s Son is a work-in-progress; the finished work is slated to premier at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in fall, 2019.  At UNL, Tyler Goodrich White is the Professor of Music and Director of Orchestral Activities; Laura White is the John E. Weaver Professor of English.  Questions about the event can be directed to Caroline Gaudreault, Director of the Robert Henri Museum and Art Gallery, at This email address is being protected from spambots.
