Frontier Strings is comprised of select students who truly encompass Omaha Conservatory of Music’s core values of musical community: passion, dedication, and excellence.
- Tutti – Placement in Tutti is audition-based. This is the section of Frontier Strings dedicated to developing violinists who have achieved Suzuki Book 4-7 level or equivalent.
- Obbligato – 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.
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. (Students do not need to be studying privately at the Conservatory to participate in this group.)

NOTE: This group requires an audition video. Auditions open on July 10 and close on August 20. Returning students may re-enroll but are still subject to audition and approval. In the event your student’s instrument and level does not have minimum repertoire class enrollment, we will reach out to you to create a tailored educational path and plan for your student.
