Symphony staffers "adopt" 2 Omaha families

The Omaha Symphony adopted 2 local families through the Salvation Army's Adopt-A-Family program this year. Staffers donated $$ to buy gifts for 9 children, wrapped 'em up last week, and delivered them today! Thanks to our own Julia Hebenstreit for organizing the project. We also gave the kids free tickets to our upcoming January family concert! :)

OWH REVIEW: "Symphony swells with festive spirit"

"If you haven’t felt in the Christmas mood yet, the Omaha Symphony can help."

"The 26th annual Christmas performance combines the polished symphony sound and the smooth vocals of Broadway singers with the talents of local rising stars, like 29 young violin students and dozens of chorus singers. Audience participation is part of the fun."
