Welcome to season IV of Crosstix! We’re excited to work with all returning members, as well as any new members to the 2023 Crosstix season. Here is some information that we hope will help you determine whether Crosstix is the right fit for your child.


Crosstix is a performing ensemble for kids ages 8-16. It’s purpose is to give kids in the Omaha area an opportunity to learn, rehearse, and perform with members of OSP. No percussion experience is necessary. Crosstix operates as its own entity, performing original material written and instructed by members of OSP. Similar to OSP, Crosstix performs using recycled items as percussive instruments such as trash cans, buckets, pots/pans, and a variety of other unique items. Students will be given multiple opportunities to perform their show for friends and family in a variety of settings. As a member of Crosstix, you will truly feel like a rockstar!


We wanted to create an environment where kids could experience the joy and benefits of music in the same way that we do. Here’s some benefits of joining the group:
  • You’ll be part of something truly one of a kind!
  • You’ll get to perform for family and friends
  • Quality instruction by members of OSP
  • An opportunity to be part of a group that’s purpose is to build character, develop musical skills, and make friends.
  • Get your own Crosstix performance t-shirts
