Omaha Children's Choir exists to provide all children with an appreciation and understanding of our city’s diversity and to inspire social change through the power of choral music.
Omaha Children's Choir envisions a community where choral music education is accessible for all children.
It is our policy to provide equality of recruitment, training and opportunity to all young singers and all staff and artistic team members working with us. Omaha Children's Choir does not advocate, support, or practice discrimination on the basis of race, color, ethnicity, national origin, sex, pregnancy, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, disability, age, genetic information, veteran status, marital status, and/or political affiliation. This applies to all of Omaha Children's Choir programs, activities, and employment.
Omaha Children's Choir has the privilege of performing in a variety of beautiful venues that best enhance choral performances. While our performing venues and the text of some of our repertoire may be representative of specific traditions, it is in no way intended to be exclusive of any individual whose experience or set of beliefs is not represented. Omaha Children's Choir respects and celebrates the great diversity of religious, artistic and human experiences represented among our singers and audience members. The audience creates the space in which the music is held.
Omaha Children's Choir believes it is important that our singers, their cultures and identities, are represented in the music we sing. Representation matters. For this reason, we have decided during the 2018-2019 season to program only music from underrepresented populations such as women, the LGBTQIA community, immigrants, people of color, and indigenous Americans. Our hope is that by taking this bold stance, we will empower not only our singers, but our audience members, the greater Omaha community, and the global choral community to represent these voices in their own unique ways.
