The Omaha Symphony – a treasured KVNO partner
The Omaha Symphony’s mission is to enrich people’s lives through the exhilarating experience of live orchestral music. Of course, KVNO and the Omaha Symphony have a natural affinity, and we are proud to partner with them on a variety of programs and projects on and off the air.
In Concert with the Omaha Symphony
KVNO regularly airs past seasons from the Omaha Symphony. We’re currently airing the 2020/2021 season. The Omaha Symphony was one of the few orchestral organizations to continue operations throughout the pandemic, however, the concerts were shorter than other seasons. Consequently, for this In Concert series, we’ve created compilation programs that draw from all the concerts performed that year to create eight full programs. Otis Twelve hosts this stellar program, produced by KVNO, and featuring our Omaha Symphony.
