Voices Creating Change is an annual performance in which Omaha Children’s Choir gives voice to the issues of our time. Omaha Children’s Choir uses 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.
Omaha Children’s Choir has selected Omaha Healthy Kids Alliance to be the beneficiary of the spring 2018 Voices Creating Change concert on Sunday, March 25 at St. Andrew's Episcopal Church - Omaha at 4pm. We will partner with OHKA to put together a choral concert and educational/outreach event focused on healthy homes for children in Omaha. We believe through music, we will give voice to a topic in which many in our community are unaware. Our children will sing songs about overcoming obstacles including a work that Omaha Children's Choir helped to commission in 2017, "But A Flint Holds Fire" composed by Andrea Ramsey in response to the water crisis in Flint, Michigan.
Omaha Children's Chor will be commissioning a new work on this concert: "Lamiya's Song" by Michael Bussewitz-Quarm (part of the Child Refugee Commission Consortium).
The concert is free and all donations received will be given to Omaha Healthy Kids Alliance.
