The Gilded age returns!

We're partnering with Joslyn Castle to bring you '20s-inspired duets, string quartets, ragtime piano performances and more.

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!

Omaha Conservatory of Music presents a string quartet traveling through the music of the 1920s and earlier.
