The University of Nebraska Omaha is proud to host the 2016 Band, Orchestra, and Choir Honor Festival (BOCH). Faculty members from the UNO School of Music performed a recital at the Strauss Performing Arts Center as part of this three-day festival.
While most institutions hold separate honors events for each ensemble, the BOCH Festival combines these groups to host an event that brings more than 350 high school students from across Nebraska and the Midwest to work with nationally renowned clinicians. This unique experience will culminate with a performance at the Baxter Arena on Sunday, January 31, 2016.
Though a rigorous audition process, high school musicians from across Nebraska and surrounding states are selected to come together and perform with other musicians at one of Omaha’s premiere performance venues. Students have the opportunity to work with UNO Music faculty and students as well as guest clinicians in both masterclass and rehearsal settings. It is a fun-filled weekend of music making and learning with other talented musicians.
