Omaha Gives –  Wednesday, May 24, 2017

Omaha Gives is a 24-hour giving event sponsored by the Omaha Community Foundation.  Your gifts to the Nebraska Wind Symphony will help us present our 41st season (2017-2018) of concert band music in the Omaha area.  Each season, we rely on individual and corporate gifts for about 25% of our annual budget. Visit Omaha Gives now to make a gift to NWS.

 A big Thank You! to the 40+ donors who gave $2775 in support of NWS during Omaha Gives 2016. These donations enabled us to celebrate our 40th anniversary season with great music to wonderful audiences.
