Nebraska Public Media Will Televise Third Omaha Symphony Concert

LINCOLN, Neb. (May 30, 2024) – A partnership between Nebraska Public Media and the Omaha Symphony will bring another of the symphony’s concerts to television viewers across the state this summer.

“Omaha Symphony in Concert: A Choral Collaborative,” premieres at 8 p.m. CT, Thursday, June 13, on Nebraska Public Media.

The Omaha Symphony’s Choral Collaborative program brings more than 300 high school vocal students and the symphony together for a unique concert experience.

The Choral Collaborative gives students the opportunity to perform a world-class repertoire, work with professional soloists and participate in an intense learning and rehearsal process.

“The schools invited to participate in this experience change each year so that many students have the opportunity to learn and perform,” said Liz Kendall Weisser, the symphony’s director of education and community engagement.

Omaha-area schools taking part in the 2024 broadcast of the Choral Collaborative performance of Brahms’ “German Requiem” include Abraham Lincoln (Council Bluffs, Iowa), Bellevue West, Bennington, Creighton Prep, Millard South and Omaha North.

The Omaha Symphony concerts on Nebraska Public Media are being brought to television in part by generous donors from both organizations.
