Summer break is coming to a close for area students and teachers, and the Omaha Symphony is ready to welcome everyone back with an exciting year of education programs! Beginning on Monday, August 8th, Omaha Symphony education programs are officially open for reservations online, and no shortage of enthusiasm is anticipated.
In our all-new Mission Imagination adventure, “Symphony in Space,” students will set a course for the final frontier as members of Symphonic Starfleet in a cosmic race against time to save the galaxy from evil. Celebrating 50 years, Margre Durham Concerts for Youth: “The Time Traveler’s Guide to the Orchestra” will take students from the Big Bang to the modern era and beyond using the Omaha Symphony as their personal, time-traveling orchestra. In our 12th annual presentation of Carnegie Hall’s Link Up, students will explore an all-new curriculum designed around rhythm and discover just how their Omaha Symphony ROCKS; don’t miss Link Up: The Orchestra Rocks!
In addition, we continue our long-standing partnership with Joslyn Art Museum for Celebrate Creativity in late October and look forward to welcoming the large number of out of town schools that attend this program. Just two weeks later, our Choral Collaborative program will feature a 500-voice chorus alongside the Omaha Symphony in a powerful and dramatic presentation of Mozart’s Requiem. Up next, we are thrilled to bring Thomas Wilkins’s Educator as Maestro program, a conducting masterclass for music educators, to the 2016 Nebraska Music Educators Association Conference in Lincoln. Lastly, throughout the season, the Omaha Symphony will participate in a number of side-by-side Music Mentor rehearsals with area schools sprinkled.
Spread the word, and get your students’ class registered to see the Omaha Symphony today!
