Hans Sturm
Meadowlark Music Festival

Our program June 18 features Hans Sturm, Professor of Music at UNL and Executive Director of the Meadowlark Music Festival. Called “the Festival to Watch” by Chamber Music America, Meadowlark Music Festival was founded in 2001 by Dr. Ann Chang, Artistic Director at the Lied Center for Performing Arts. With the assistance of current Board of Directors President – Clay Bradley, Executive Director - Hans Sturm, an active and working Board of Directors, and widespread community and foundation support, Meadowlark is now well into its 2nd decade of music performances. Sturm came to Lincoln to teach at UNL after 17 years at Ball State University (David Letterman U). He has toured six continents, making a wide range of music.

He’s described his presentation this way:
But you've got to have a reason...
Of all the instruments to choose from, why bass?
What would make you give up a tenure?
You're so busy, why take on a struggling music festival?
This is why I love Lincoln.
This is why I love Meadowlark... and why you will too.
