You’ve never experienced the Tree Adventure — or the symphony — quite like this!

Arbor Day Farm Tree Adventure in Nebraska City and Lincoln’s Symphony Orchestra are teaming up for a one-of-a-kind outdoor music event, called Nature’s Symphony, on Saturday, May 4, from 3:00-5:00pm.

Guests of this event will stroll through the forested trails at the Tree Adventure, finding different musicians from Lincoln’s Symphony Orchestra, making music in the woods. World-renown violinist Anton Miller will play atop the 50-foot-high treehouse and Maestro Ed Polochick will play piano in the log-beamed Discovery Ride Depot, making for a musical, memorable encounter in the great outdoors.


Four food and wine stations will be situated along the trails, each featuring a selection of bite-sized hors d’oeuvres and Arbor Day Farm wines to enjoy while you roam.

“The Nature’s Symphony event is intended to bring a new perspective to audience members – about symphonic music as well as about nature,” said Doug Farrar, Vice President of Arbor Day Farm. “Our goal is to provide opportunities for individuals to make meaningful connections in nature, and the orchestra provides a unique soundtrack for doing just that.”

This is an outdoor event. What about inclement weather?
While we’re hoping for a beautiful, sunny day on May 4, we know that springtime in Nebraska can be a bit unpredictable. Nature’s Symphony will go on, rain or shine. In case of rain, the musicians will play together in a tent and in the Discovery Ride Depot at Arbor Day Farm, and attendees can gather around to enjoy the music.

What kind of food and wine will be offered?
Four food and wine stations will be situated along the trails, each featuring a selection of bite-sized hors d’oeuvres and Arbor Day Farm wines to enjoy while you roam.
