Second Annual: PLU Honor Orchestra for Strings
Open to High School String Players from throughout the Northwest
Following the success of another annual event here at PLU, the Northwest Honor Band, we have created a similar opportunity just for string players with the PLU Honor Orchestra for Strings. It is a two-day festival held annually over a weekend in January, offering individual high school string players from throughout the region the opportunity to perform excellent literature for string orchestra with a nationally recognized guest conductor.
The Guest Conductor for 2014 is William LaRue Jones, founding conductor of the Greater Twin-Cities Youth Orchestras in Minneapolis-St. Paul, and Director of Orchestra Activities at the University of Iowa. Dr. Jones is recognized nation-wide as a master educator and conductor.
