In partnership with Nelson Mandela Elementary School, Minne Lusa and Miller Park Neighborhood Associations and other community partners, we’re excited to announced Music at Miller Park, a FREE community-sponsored outdoor
summer concert series that will take place at the Miller Park Pavilion, 2707 Redick Ave on the first Saturday’s of June, August and September.
Miller Park is in an area with a rich history of jazz, soul and R&B music dating back to the 1920s. Some may remember the performances of legendary musicians such as Louis Armstrong, Ray Charles and Duke Ellington along North 24th Street. We’re pleased to bring this concert series to the Omaha community, and we encourage families to come out and enjoy a summer evening immersed in incredible live music and vibrant culture.
