Tanner Chilson, MM candidate in bass performance, is the recipient of the Chancellor’s Award for Outstanding Service Learning. This is a tremendous honor and a testament to Tanner’s contributions to the UNO School of Music and community partners. Tanner has participated in two service learning projects in the past three semesters, Sound Health; Bringing Music to Medicine and Partners in Performance. Both are collaborative projects and have partner with Omaha Public Schools, the Fred & Pamela Buffett Cancer Center Healing Arts Program, and Omaha Area Youth Orchestras.
Tanner has been a role model and leader to UNO students during Partners in Performance school residencies, as well as Sound Health school residencies, and performances. The success of both these projects could not be possible without the dedication, hard work, and many contributions of Tanner Chilson.
