Meadowlark's 20th Anniversary Promo (2022)

Many thanks to everyone who came out to support Meadowlark last year! We had a marvelous time at our 20th Anniversary Celebration in April with Lincoln's own Ezinma sharing the stage with the Ravnan String Quartet and the Voices of Victory Gospel Choir — a concert that blew the roof off Kimball Recital Hall!
And then in July we enjoyed a sublime evening of jazz under the whispering Prairie Pines featuring acclaimed vocalist Jackie Allen and saxophonist Paul Haar accompanied by Jeff Jenkins, Hans Sturm, and Michael Warren.


Meadowlark artists and staff would appreciate your support. Kindly consider making a donation in support of Meadowlark during this challenging time.

"The crowd stood and cheered at concert’s end as the sunset cast warm glows through the stained-glass windows
of St. Paul church. It was a grand conclusion for one of the best Meadowlark festivals in recent years." Lincoln Journal Star
