OMAHA PERFORMING ARTS ANNOUNCES 
DIGITAL SUMMER CONCERTS
Jazz on YOUR Green replaces popular Jazz on the Green series this summer 

OMAHA, Neb. (May 8, 2020) – Omaha Performing Arts announced today a summer lineup of four free concerts to be broadcast live on Omaha Performing Arts’ Facebook page Thursdays in July, beginning July 9 through July 30, 2020. 

For this summer only, O-pa’s Jazz on Your Green streaming concerts will replace the wildly popular Jazz on the Green concerts in Turner Park at Midtown Crossing, which have been canceled due to ongoing health and safety concerns surrounding Covid-19. 

The concerts, sponsored by Mutual of Omaha, Fran and Rich Juro and KETV, go live on Facebook beginning at 6 PM each Thursday. Like Jazz on the Green, each performance features an opener. 

No Facebook account is required to watch. However, those who follow Omaha Performing Arts on Facebook will be notified when the concerts go live. This year’s acts include: 

DARCY MALONE AND THE TANGLE

The online concerts will join a growing digital line-up of experiences and activities presented by O-pa. Twice-weekly live performances, student master classes, activities for children and families and more continue as Omaha Performing Arts creates new and engaging digital arts and entertainment opportunities during the pandemic.
