Omaha Symphony’s “Symphonic Space Odyssey” Giveaway

I was not paid to write this post on behalf of the Omaha Symphony – I just really love their Family Series. Omaha Symphony provided the tickets for the giveaway.

For the uninitiated, the Omaha Symphony has a series of kid-friendly shows called the Family Series. They’re performances at a kid-friendly time (2 p.m.), at a kid-friendly duration (about an hour), with a kid-friendly atmosphere (no shame in getting the squirmies here or the having a can’t-whisper kid).

I’m a fan – I’ve written about it a few times including the annual “Symphony Spooktacular” and “Carnival of Animals,” featuring, what else?, lots of live animals. They’re always engaging, even for my preschoolers (it was a little tougher when Mooch was under 3).

The next show in the Omaha Symphony’s Family Series is “Symphonic Space Odyssey” on Jan. 18 at the Holland Performing Arts Center.


For this unique production, they brought in Nebraska’s very own hero, NASA astronaut Clayton Anderson. The show will explore new galaxies in a visual and musical journey – that’s right, visual. This performance has larger-than-life visuals from NASA.

If you go

When: Sunday, Jan. 18, 2 p.m. (Lobby opens at 1:15 p.m. – arrive early for the pre-show lobby activities, including the instrument petting zoo!)

Where: Holland Performing Arts Center, Kiewit Hall, 1200 Douglas St.

Cost: General admission is $12.

I can't think of a different song off the too of my head, but I like all your suggestions!

Have to say - I can't think of any songs about space at the moment - but this show looks so great!
