NEA Grant

An Exciting Moment for the Conservatory

In May 2015 and again in June 2020, Omaha Conservatory of Music became a recipient of one of the most prestigious awards an arts organization can receive: a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.

The award bestows funding for data collection related to our String Sprouts program, but the true honor of this award lies in the fact that Omaha Conservatory of Music has secured a national, competitive grant from one of the most influential arts funding organizations in the country.

What does this mean to you?

If you are a student, parent or alumni member, you can now say you or your child studied at a school that is recognized by the National Endowment for the Arts. If you are a donor or frequent attendee of our many events, you can share in the pride we all feel because your continued support helps us fulfill our mission: to build musical community through education and performance to enrich lives.

As Omaha Conservatory of Music continues its rapid growth, this NEA grant will play a major role in opening the doors to additional regional and national attention. It is our hope that the recognition that will result from this award can strengthen our entire organization. We are proud to share this honor with you — our parents, students, donors, faculty and friends who make our community what it is.
