Frontier Strings

About the group

Frontier Strings is comprised of select students who truly encompass Omaha Conservatory of Music’s core values of musical community: passion, dedication, and excellence.

This premiere string ensemble comprised of advanced students performs a variety of repertoire — pop songs, sacred music, fiddle tunes, classical show tunes, and movie music — all from memory. Frontier Strings performs throughout the community during the academic year and tours during the summer. The group has performed throughout the United States and Europe, delighting audiences everywhere with their stunt fiddling dance moves, and even hula-hooping while performing music at top speed! Students must play violin to participate.

Did you know your tuition only covers 70% of our costs?

Our annual tuition, which includes 40 weeks of private instruction plus the opportunity to attend dozens of Conservatory events at no additional cost, doesn't cover the total cost of your musical education here. If you would like to help us cover the remaining 30 percent, please give what you can — or consider being a recurring donor to support our mission all year long!
