Located in Kimball Recital Hall and Westbrook Music Building. The Honor Jazz Weekend is designed to give outstanding high school musicians a comprehensive playing and learning experience. Festival participants are chosen through a recorded audition. Students attending the festival are involved in small jazz combos as well as a large jazz ensemble. Students also participate in master classes with University of Nebraska–Lincoln faculty and featured guests, learn about jazz history, composition, and improvisation.
The featured ensemble, The Matt Wilson Quartet, will work with the Honor Jazz Weekend participants in masterclasses and rehearsals.
British artist Lynn Setterington (her quilt "Mums Are Heroes" is included in the current exhibition "Perspectives: Art, Craft, Design and the Studio Quilt") is the 2009 IQSC Fellowship Visiting Artist. She will discuss her reflections on her practice led research in quiltmaking and embroidery over two decades, with reference to the impact of non-western cultures and collaborative endeavors. The lecture will be a chronological discussion of her practice detailing how quiltmaking has entwined with her embroidery work at different stages. She will also explore the impact of cross cultural exchanges and developments in recent years that have led to a series of collaborative textile initiatives in the northwest of England.
Lynn Setterington, artist and Senior Lecturer at Manchester Metropolitan University in Manchester, England, is the 2010 IQSC fellowship recipient.
