Omaha Symphony Music Director Thomas Wilkins has been appointed a professor of music at Indiana University in Bloomington.
He will assume the Henry A. Upper Chair of Orchestral Conducting on Aug. 1 if the university's trustees approve the appointment.
Wilkins and Omaha Symphony officials recently announced that he would retire as music director after the 2020-21 season. Until then, he will work both for the orchestra and the university. He also is principal conductor of the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra and holds the Germeshausen Family and Youth Concert Chair with the Boston Symphony.
Indiana University officials praised the conductor as a master of communicating and connecting with audiences of all ages.
