The 8th Annual Honors Spring Strings is for high school freshman, sophomores, juniors and seniors. Students will work directly with the University of Nebraska’s faculty and a special guest conductor.

Our special guest conductor is Maestro Ian Passmore, “a rising young conductor” who is currently assistant conductor of the Omaha Symphony. Maestro Passmore served as Associate Instructor of Orchestral Conducting at the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music and has most recently invited to guest conduct in Vietnam at the Vietnam National Academy of Music and to conduct the Hanoi Philharmonic.
