WILLIAMSPORT SUN-GAZETTE (PENNSYLVANIA) -- Ohnmeiss has been committed to music and academic study of scores and conducting styles for a very long time. Following his 2010 graduation from San Francisco State University, where he earned a bachelor’s degree in music education, he conducted ensembles in the San Francisco Bay Area.

During his time at the University, he served as the student conductor of the wind ensemble, was the founder of the SFSU Gator Band, and was a regular guest conductor for the Daly City Community Band.

He went on to earn a master’s degree in conducting from Messiah College, Grantham, and for three years, Ohnmeiss served as the director of the Williamsport Imperial Teteques, the oldest masonic band in the United States, until it disbanded a few years ago.
