About Voices Creating Change
Through utilizing the power of people, art, and collaboration, the Omaha Children’s Choir tells the stories of organizations doing life-changing work in the local community. Knowing that music plays an important role in building awareness and empathy, we intentionally select and perform music that works to open up a space for tough conversations about the issues of our time. To recognize and support the work of the chosen beneficiary, the Omaha Children’s Choir donates 100% of our Voices Creating Change proceeds to said beneficiary. Only in its second year of existence, the semi-annual Voices Creating Change series is making a huge impact in the Omaha community. In the past two years, the Omaha Children’s Choir has raised over $4,500 for Magdalene Omaha and Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Midlands, respectively.
Interested in becoming the next Voices Creating Change beneficiary? Online applications go live on Sunday, October 15, 2017, or the date of the last Voices Creating Change concert. Applications for the 2019 Voices Creating Change beneficiary can be found through the following link: www.omahachildrenschoir.org/voices-creating-change/. Applications will open the day of our spring 2018 concert (March 25) and close at the beginning of May. Nonprofit organizations may apply themselves and community members may nominate their favorite nonprofit. After applications close, the Voices Creating Change committee reads, discusses, selects, and notifies all applicants in the pool of their choice.
