Omaha museum already on hunt for donated Christmas tree

May 27, 2019

Just as summer is finally coming into view in Nebraska, an Omaha museum is kicking off its search for the perfect Christmas tree.

The Durham Museum is searching for the official tree for its annual Christmas at Union Station celebration. Every year, the museum receives submissions from Omaha-area residents offering to donate their evergreen tree for display.

The tree selected must meet certain benchmarks, including that it be over 40 feet tall, have a single, straight trunk, have a uniform shape and be in a spot where it can been safely removed.

The Physicians Mutual Omaha Symphony "Christmas Celebration" is the merriest way to celebrate the Yuletide season!  The Omaha Symphony’s singing, dancing, and musical extravaganza, opens Dec. 8 with 10 performances through Dec. 16, at the Holland Performing Arts Center.

Director and Choreographer Parker Esse chats with Mike Hogan "Live & Local" about the magic of the season and the beauty of the show coming together.
