OMAHA, NE 2019
We are excited to return to Omaha for our third time and our 17th year and 24th season. Why Omaha, NE? Nebraska is a beautiful part of the country and Omaha is no exception to that. The people are friendly, the landscape is beautiful, and there’s not another place quite like it.
SWB’s Artistic Director, Julie Lyonn Lieberman, worked in NE for several weeks and fell in love with the artsy, quaint shopping district, the excellent food, and most importantly, the thriving string scene. The local string players and teachers are fantastic people and she’s looking forward to sharing this environment with you.
