Forte: Amplifying the Strengths of Our Community

The Forte initiative combines the community programming the Omaha Symphony has collaborated on for 20 years, with the smaller more embedded engagements we explored during the pandemic. Representing and serving the Omaha area allows for long-range planning and evaluation, as well as examining all facets of the organization, from representation on stage to accessibility for patrons across all series.
