Huge thank you to the Strategic Air Command & Aerospace Museum for hosting our first concert of the season! Visit the SAC Museum on November 11th at 6 P.M. as the Youth Symphony, Youth Philharmonic and Youth Concert Strings honor veterans and active military in our Salute to Service concert.

Enjoy a special pre-concert Veterans Day program and lunch at the museum! The program includes a free lunch and non-veterans pay admission the day of the event. Veterans are granted free admission to the museum as appreciation for their service. This lunch program features posting of the colors and a keynote speaker. Veterans are encouraged to attend this event in uniform. RSVP required by clicking here. Lunch will begin at noon with the program concluding at 2 P.M.

Did you know the SAC Museum received its first airplane in 1959, just one year after OAYO’s founding. Learn more about this Smithsonian affiliate here.


We moved our office from the 6th floor of the AIM Exchange building to the 4th floor of the AIM Exchange building.

Same location, different office.

We are now neighbors with the Omaha Symphony offices!

This also means our phone line hasn’t been moved downstairs yet, so if you’ve left a voicemail in the last 2 weeks, we haven’t heard it. Sorry! It was kind of a quick turn around. We are working to get our services transferred. Another post will follow when our phone is back up and working.

In the mean time, if you need to get a hold of us, please email for any rehearsal, concert, or general questions. And please email for any tuition, administration, scholarship, business questions.

Thank you for your understanding and patience while we transition through many new phases at OAYO.

We are working to give you the best experience we can. Thanks for bearing with us.

It’s our 60th Anniversary! Help us continue growth in young musicians!

Your donation dollars go towards providing our kids the individual attention they need on their instrument throughout the year through SECTIONAL COACHING by professional musicians.

Your generous gift goes towards funding a SCHOLARSHIP for someone who may not have the opportunity to play without financial aid.

Throughout the 2018-2019 concert season, musicians may be highlighted in efforts to promote the Omaha Area Youth Orchestras (OAYO) activities and achievements. For example, musicians may be featured in grant applications and/or to increase a public awareness of OAYO through newspapers, radio, TV, social media platforms, CDs, videos, displays, brochures and other types of media.

In order to do this, we would like your permission.  If you would like examples of things we post and photos we share, check out our Facebook page or browse through some photos in our media gallery.
