In 2001, BSO created BluesEd, a non-profit youth artist development program which provides opportunities for young musicians to perform in bands with other students. BluesEd has gained national attention for Omaha, and currently operates six youth bands.
BSO produces and/or sponsors various music events throughout the year. BSO has been a sponsor for Playing With Fire, free outdoor concerts held each summer in Omaha. In addition to financial support, BSO has provided significant volunteer hours for many of the events it sponsors. The PWF concert series has drawn national recognition to Omaha. Check out PWF at www.playingwithfireomaha.net.
BSO provides support to The Zoo Bar, Lincoln’s award-winning blues venue.
BSO participates in “Jammin’ Away The Blues”, an annual fundraiser for The Nebraska Mental Health Organization.
BSO contributes to “Operation Feed the Troops”, a fundraiser to provide free food to deploying and returning armed forces members and their families.
BSO hosts an annual toy drive and concert fundraiser for the children of Pine Ridge Reservation.
