Back in September, I took a short vacation to Colorado and enjoyed a week at Rocky Mountain National Park. It was very relaxing. Then I spent a couple days in the Denver area and while there I read several articles in the Denver Post that made me very happy to be living in Omaha. One of the articles was about the Denver Symphony and its financial problems raising the question about how long it would be able to continue. They are looking for major donors to step up. I thought about the Omaha Symphony, which is not without problems, but has a strong community support from institutions and individuals.
Whatever your musical taste, the Omaha Symphony has something to offer to you, from the whimsical dancing Santas in the Christmas program to the music of the Beatles and Beethoven. Thirty years ago I lived in Denver and I have been back several times to visit but am very glad to return home to Omaha. So if Omaha is your home, enjoy it and support organizations such as the symphony which make Omaha such a great place to live!
