Omaha Girls Rock Summer Sessions

Omaha Girls Rock summer sessions were such a success! Week One included 10-12 year olds and Week Two included 13-16 year olds. We were so happy with the outcome of each week. We partnered with organizations to bring the girls education beyond instrument lessons. First of all, we were so lucky to be housed at The Holland Center for Performing Arts!! Other organizations included Planned Parenthood, The Union for Contemporary Art, Maha Music Festival, and so much more!

We work to encourage women to show their worth. Sapphire has written about her experience and it stands out as a wonderful example for all women- young and old.
