If music is part of your life…

                   then NFMC should be too!

The Nebraska Federation of Music Clubs is an organization of many people who have one thing in common – a great love for music.  We are a part of the National Federation of Music Clubs which is dedicated to the preservation and expansion of music.  This organization is the nation’s largest organization dedicated to music education and the promotion of creative and performing arts in America.  NFMC is only one of three music organizations chartered by the Congress and only music organization member of the United Nations.

Nebraska Federation of Music Clubs offers a wide variety of services and opportunities for its members at all levels of organization through performance opportunities, scholarships and grants, auditions and competitions, and club-sponsored community activities or programs.
