Thank YOU! to everyone who contributed to the success of our 2017-2018 concert season.
Our season began with  a collaborative concert with the Omaha Symphonic Chorus in October.  We were able to purchase badly needed new and replacement percussion instruments due to many generous donations and foundations.  The year ended with a fabulously successful (despite the hot, humid weather) Community Band Festival featuring 8 different performing groups and another record setting turnout at our annual Fourth of July concert at Chalco Hills Recreation Area.
We couldn’t do this without the wonderful leadership of our Music Director, Larry MacTaggart, the NWS Board of Directors, our playing member/volunteers and our many fans.
THANK YOU!  Please join us for more great concerts in our 2018-2019 season.

Thank You for your Support through Omaha Gives!
