Nebraska Medical Orchestra

The Nebraska Medical Orchestra--a collaboration between UNO and UNMC--is a volunteer orchestra, under the direction of Matthew Brooks, DMA, open to all health care-related musicians.

While many of our musicians come from various colleges and departments at UNMC, Nebraska Medicine, and Children's Hospital & Medical Center, we have welcomed musicians affiliated with other health care organizations and institutions, including UNL, Clarkson College, Nebraska Methodist College, Creighton University, CHI Health, and private practices.

For more information about joining the NMO, please reach out by emailing NebMedicalOrchestra@unmc.edu.

“[The Nebraska Medical Orchestra] allows me to slow down during the week and do something I really enjoy!”
