All-Star Program Student Info

The Nebraska Wind Symphony, Omaha’s community concert band, will feature middle school All-Star Baritones and Tubas in our Spring Concert on February 18, 2024 at 3:00 pm in the UNO Strauss Performing Arts Center. These 7th and 8th grade instrumentalists will be performing an ensemble solo on “Pink Panther” and “Tiptoe Through the Tubas”.  In addition to working with Dr. Joshua Kearney, Music Director for the Nebraska Wind Symphony, the students will work with a clinician in a sectional rehearsal on February 12, 2024 at St. Thomas Lutheran Church.
We are excited to provide this opportunity for young instrumentalists to grow in their music education and showcase their talents!
