We are so excited to announce that we are bringing back Crosstix for 2022!! Here is some information that we hope will help you decide whether Crosstix is the right group for your child.

What is CROSSTIX?

Crosstix is a performing ensemble for kids ages 8-15. It’s purpose is to give kids in the Omaha area an opportunity to learn, rehearse, and perform with members of OSP. 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!
Who is Crosstix for?
Enrollment is for ages 8-15. No percussion experience is necessary.

Why CROSSTIX?

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-shirt and custom OSP drumsticks

Time Commitment?

Rehearsals will be on Saturdays mornings. (see detailed schedule for specific dates and time) The season will be May 7th and run through July 28th. We understand you may encounter conflicts on certain dates. We want you to know that we’re not expecting everyone to be at 100% of all rehearsals or shows. However, If you believe you will need to miss more than one or two rehearsals or shows, then Crosstix may not be a best fit for you and your child. See detailed schedule below.
