Voices Creating Change
Voices Creating Change is a semi-annual collaborative event in which Omaha Children's Choir gives voice to the issues of our time. We use music as a tool to inspire social change in our community; a tool that can open our eyes to other cultures, open our emotions to different perspectives, break down social barriers, and unite people of all backgrounds. We use the power of people, art, and collaboration to tell the stories of organizations doing life-changing work. Omaha Children's Choir donates 100% of our Voices Creating Change proceeds to a chosen nonprofit organization doing important work in our community.
Applications and nominations are open for the 2019 beneficiary position. Please review the eligibility and requirement section before filling out the application and nomination form.
If you have questions about eligibility, please contact Samuel Bertino, Director of Operations and Community Engagement.
