Each month, KVNO honors the gift of the arts in our youth by recognizing an outstanding student musician. A panel of local music educators and KVNO staff members choose students whose musical efforts exemplify the value and richness of the arts in a young person's life. Any young musician aged 7-13 who is studying and participating in vocal or instrumental music is eligible to be a Classical Kid. Winners receive a school visit from a KVNO representative and an award certificate presentation.
Classical Kids also receive on-air recognition throughout the month and tickets to arts events, including the Omaha Symphony, Opera Omaha, and the Tuesday Musical Concert Series! Thanks to generous sponsorship from the Soener Foundation, in honor of Mary Belle Soener.
