The Nebraska Composers Alliance

Supporting the work of Nebraska’s composers.

Recently a group of composers from the Nebraska Composers Alliance created a new set of etudes for the all-state instrumental auditions of the Nebraska Music Educators Association.

Tony Falcone, Nolan Schmit and Tyler White completed etudes for strings, winds and percussion that will be used for the first time this fall as young people from all over the state of Nebraska audition for the NMEA all-state band and orchestra.
