String Project Students and Omaha Symphony Orchestra to Perform at UNK


On Wednesday, March 13, the Omaha Symphony and the students in the String Project will perform in the UNK Fine Arts Recital Hall at 7:30 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.

The Omaha Symphony's All Aboard Tour project is an initiative designed to bring the musical resources and talents of the Omaha Symphony to communities throughout the state of Nebraska.

The tour is designed to find ways to engage communities in making music through educational opportunities with the Omaha Symphony as a well as performances with them.

The first stop on the All Aboard tour is Kearney. Through a partnership with the String Project at the University of Nebraska at Kearney, Omaha Symphony musicians have spent many hours working with nearly 50 string students in third through ninth grade over the past several months.

Students in the String Project each have one to four years of experience on the violin, viola, cello or bass, and have studied their instruments under the direction of Dr. Noah Turner Rogoff, professor of music at UNK.
