The Firey String Company (FSCO) was founded by cellist Nioka Workman to ‘push the art of string playing into the next level’. FSCO is striving to create nurturing environments for creative and improvising string players to share, learn new skills, produce new work and network. We have a passion for empowering female artists and composers particularly those artists that often don’t have the opportunity to perform in festival settings or in educational showcases. Each FSCO Season involves six family art showcases, two dynamic female composer features, FSCO First Run: a string improviser series, a LAB (new), a yearly Radiance festival and Sessions 4 (summer sessions/workshops)

FSCO Staff: Free
FSCO Artist: $15 w/membership card
FSCO General Fee: $20
