The Omaha Symphony organized the event. Among those enjoying the event was a boy named Troy. He has a rare and incurable bone disease. Troy’s mother says she could not help but see his face light up when he played with the instruments. “This is our fifth day in the hospital. To be able to finally come down and get out of the bed today and give him something different to do and to look at is really great for him. It really lifts his spirit when he is here,” said Aimee Strickland.
Members of The Omaha Symphony also made their way through the halls of the hospital, playing music and visiting children.
