Family Fun Friday: Concerts in Nebraska for Families

You can possibly tell a lot about our family from our basement.

Basement Guitars

We would definitely be considered musical.  Paying for 3 piano lessons per week can feel a bit steep, but my husband and I definitely feel that the investment is worth it.  Thankfully he can teach the kids about guitar.  No one has mad skills yet, but there certainly is a lot of fiddling going on.  We also happen to have a trap set – my poor ears.  (Thankfully the drums are electronic ones.)  Going a little deaf is usually worth it – a lot of joyful sounds come from downstairs!

We also want to expose our kids to great music.  But that can be a bit challenging due to ticket prices.  Justifying spending well over $100 on an event that you may not even get to sit through (due to multiple bathroom trips 🙂 ) is a bit of stretch.  Thankfully there are some upcoming events in the area that were planned with kids in mind.

Tonight in Beatrice …

The Lincoln Symphony Orchestra in Concert
presented by BAAC, The Hevelone Foundation, Pinnacle Bank & The Nebraska Arts Council

  • January 31st at 7:00 p.m.
  • The Hevelone Center
    Beatrice, NE
  • General Admission – $10, Students – FREE

(Notice: Kids are free – cannot get any more family friendly than that! This is the same concert they will be performing on Saturday night in Lincoln at a less expensive price!)

The Omaha Symphony has concerts in both March and April that are reasonably priced.  I know that my kids would enjoy both the “Carnival of the Animals” theme and “All Aboard!”

The Lincoln Symphony has a series of concerts for family.  And you can even discounted tickets if you purchase them for more than one event at a time.  The tickets start at $5 for children!

Hastings Symphony Orchestra is having their “Hastings College Young Artist Competition Winners” concert on February 23rd.

Our personal family pick for the evening is not quite as cultured, but it is musical.  We will be attending the Paul Baloche Concert at Lincoln Berean Church.

Paul Baloche // Night of Worship

Friday, January 31, 7:00PM

Join us for a Night of Worship with Dove Award winning singer/songwriter, Paul Baloche.

Tickets: $10, children 12 and under are free.

Notice that kids are free! 🙂  That went along way for us to make this a priority!  Looking forward to a night out!

  1. If you haven’t gone to an Omaha Symphony family concert yet, you’ve got to! They do such a neat job engaging the young audience, and the pre-show activities are fun. Thomas Wilkins in conducting the Carnival of Animals one and he is phenomenal.
