Posted On May 21, 2019, 10:20 AM by Courtney Mattern

We packed the house earlier this month at The B-Side of Benson Theatre for our Singer/Songwriter Competition Showcase! Watch the video for highlights. 

We love to support the work of local artists and the showcase put the talent of our 13 finalists in the spotlight. More than two dozen artists of all ages entered the songwriting contest for a chance to perform at the Maha Music Festival. 

Congratulations to Trey Clarkson, winner of the 15-17 age division, and Mario Foreman-Powell, winner of the 18+ age division. Cheer them on when they perform August 17 at Maha! Follow Omaha Performing Arts on Facebook for updates on their performance times.

A special thank you to our amazing judges from the Omaha music industry: Daniel Christian, Virginia Gallner, Mary Elizabeth Lawson and Lauren Martin.
