Starting February 2020, the sights and sounds of the 1920s come roaring back to life! We're partnering with Joslyn Castle to bring you '20s-inspired duets, string quartets, ragtime piano performances and more. Each performance will be hosted in the gorgeous (and historically appropriate) Joslyn Castle every First Tuesday beginning February 4, 2020. Tickets run $30 and are available at joslyncastle.com. Featuring music from Gershwin to Joplin to Rachmaninoff and beyond, each performance will encapsulate the excitement of the era. You won't want to miss it!
First Tuesdays with the Omaha Conservatory of Music at Joslyn Castle series is sponsored by Richard and Mary Parrish. Thank you!

Omaha Conservatory of Music presents a string quartet traveling through the music of the 1920s and earlier. During a pivotal time when music was exploring atonal ideas and the birth of jazz, this era had a little something to captivate everyone. This performance will connect jazz ragtime and French culture with themes of Gershwin inspired by Debussy.
