Frontier Strings: Obbligato
February 18, 2022 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm CST
An event every week that begins at 5:30 pm on Friday, repeating until May 20, 2022
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 premier string ensemble 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 nationally or internationally each 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 also be enrolled in Friday Suzuki Repertoire Class at their assigned level.
Placement in Obbligato is audition-based. This is Omaha Conservatory’s preeminent violin ensemble of students who have excelled to Suzuki Book 8 level or beyond. Students can play three octave scales and arpeggios with fluency and are studying the standard violin concerto repertoire.
