Omaha Symphony

Individual Giving

At the Omaha Symphony, we believe in making music accessible to everyone. We reach out to individuals of all ages and backgrounds through concerts, education programs and community outreach. Each year, the symphony performs more than 100 concerts – from free community events to main-stage concerts with world-renowned guest artists. Our music education programs provide nearly 30,000 students with the opportunity to use music as a tool to develop skills of creativity, understanding and communication, and our community partnerships provide engagement for underserved audiences. We cannot accomplish any of this without you, our loyal patrons and donors. 

With your financial commitment we will continue to be a vibrant and dynamic leader in our community.  Please make a gift to the Annual Fund today!
