Local Students Compose at Learning in Concert
Phase 1 of the 2015-2016 Learning in Concert program—Adaptations in Motion: Animal and Musical—is now complete! Students attended an assembly with NBSO musicians and learned various compositional techniques to skillfully create musical adaptations that replicate through music the gradual progression of ancient species who moved from swimming and gliding in water to crawling, climbing, jumping, flying and running on land. In Phase 2, Education Director Terry Wolkowicz will make 140 classroom visits to complete in-depth student analysis of graphing and composing animal locomotion. The NBSO's 2016
Young People's Concert will feature the students' completed compositions in the World Premiere performance of Adaptations in Motion.
Watch the short video presentation below to see our 2015-2016 Learning in Concert program in action! Thank you to New Bedford Cable Network for producing this video and to NBSO Education Director Terry Wolkowicz, Buttonwood Park Zoo, Lt. Scott Carola of the New Bedford Police Department, and everyone at the Gomes School in New Bedford for taking part in this production.

Be a Ceiling Supporter!
We had to purchase a new acoustic shell ceiling this year at a cost of $45,000. This expense is outside our normal operating budget, so we've created a special "Be a Ceiling Supporter" campaign to raise funds for the purchase.
You can buy a portion of the ceiling for us and join the donors who are helping ensure the NBSO sounds its very best. We have more than 700 square feet to go, so please help us today!
Listen to the NBSO
We have a number of live concert recordings of NBSO performances available here. Listen at your leisure, then let us know what you think! Email us at email@example.com.
