Reed Moore’s Things To Do In The Spring
Enjoy Outdoor Music
Holland Center Outdoors
1200 Douglas St., Omaha
The Holland Center is a beacon for live music in Omaha, and that’s partly because of the beloved HCO concert series. After closing in March of last year, the Holland Center is bringing the series back in May. The series is planned to run on the east lawn until mid-fall.
This will be a grand showcasing of national and local live musical. So, get the blankets and lawn chairs ready.
