Susan Morris – President of Heritage Services
Join the Omaha Symphony as we celebrate our 99th anniversary season with an engagement you won't soon forget! The world-renowned pianist Emanuel Ax takes on Brahms’ majestic Second Piano Concerto for a one-night-only event. Led by Maestro Thomas Wilkins and joined by the Omaha Symphony, this extraordinary musician will sweep you away from the very first notes of Brahms’ romantic masterwork.
Not only will gala attendees enjoy an evening filled with sights, sounds and tastes beyond compare, but you'll also be playing a huge role in bringing the Omaha Symphony's mission to fruition. Proceeds from the event support the Omaha Symphony’s music education and community engagement programs that inspire nearly 45,000 youth and educators every year.
As President of Heritage Services since 1995, Susan Morris has been involved with numerous capital campaigns, totaling over $1 billion, including the $75 million capital and endowment campaign supporting Joslyn Art Museum and the Durham Museum, the $112 million Holland Performing Arts Center, TD Ameritrade Park to host the College World Series and, DoSpace – Omaha’s digital library which opened in November of 2015. She is currently developing the new Veterans Ambulatory Center. Morris serves on the search committee for the new Omaha Symphony Music Director.
