We had an idea. How about gathering several outstanding community bands from across the Midland, all in one place, for a great afternoon of music?
Join us for the first ever Community Band Festival of the Midlands, June 30 at Midtown Crossing’s Turner Park from noon to 8PM.
The Festival will include eight wind and percussion ensembles from eastern Nebraska and western Iowa. Each group will play about 40 minutes, leading up to a mass performance of Sousa’s “The Stars and Stripes Forever.”

Thank You! for your Financial Support
NWS relies on financial support from its playing members, concert patrons, and businesses and individuals from around the Omaha metropolitan area. These gifts help us to pay for rehearsal and concert space, music director and other staff salaries, new music purchase and rental, performance rights, insurance, replacement equipment, and so many other things.
Gifts this past year in memory of/honor of someone special have allowed us to increase our annual scholarship award to $1,000. Thank you for helping us support young instrumentalists!
Thank you for your past and future support!
