Music Mentors from the Omaha Symphony

Teens, who are themselves mentored by professional musicians at the Omaha Symphony, in turn mentor Girls Inc. members.  Brilliant, right?  The following link will show you a tiny bit (43 seconds, actually) of Erin’s clarinet lesson and this link – – will show you a bit (one minute, one second) of Maya’s violin lesson.  In addition to the instrumental lessons, the teens attend Omaha Symphony performances with their mentees and enjoy some pre-concert pizza or pasta at an Old Market restaurant.  The Omaha Symphony has been collaborating with Girls Inc. on this program for several years and will receive our 2009 Angel Award at our Annual Meeting on January 21st in recognition of this cool partnership.
