Nebraska: The Cornhusker State is a musical view of this state. Coined by a sportswriter in 1900, the term "Cornhuskers" became the official name of the University of Nebraska's athletic teams. The first movement, "Husker Mania!," is a rousing piece that brings to mind a football fight song. The berceuse style of the second movement, "The Great Platte River," is a gentle ride down the river that flows through the state. The rowdy third movement, "Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show," is a return to the days of this American figure who brought his rough and tumble rodeo show to North Platte.
