For our next two concerts, we have a special offer for anyone who has never been to an NBSO concert: two free tickets!
"The transformation of the NBSO over the last several years has been extraordinary yet our research shows that there are still many people who don't know about us," said NBSO CEO David Prentiss. "We want to ensure that everybody interested in classical music in our region has a chance to hear for themselves how good of an orchestra we are, and also to experience the world-class guest artists who perform with us."
To receive the special offer of two free tickets, call the NBSO office at 508-999-6276.
Congratulations to Education Director Terry Wolkowicz who was named New Bedford Woman of the Year! Read the Standard-Times article here.
Our 2013-14 SchoolsMusic! program is getting rave reviews from students and teachers alike! Read the recent Standard-Times article about our highly acclaimed music education program that brings a trio of NBSO musicians into schools to perform a live, interactive, arts-integrated program fro students in grades 2-5. This year's shared concept focuses on the concept of symmetry and the ways in which a musical shape or melody and a geometric shape can be transformed while still maintaining its original shape or measurement.
Learn more about our new and exciting education programs and NBSO Education Director Terry Wolkowicz's common sense approach to the Common Core Standards.

The Weiss-Kaplan-Newman Trio | website
Camille Saint-Saëns: Introduction and Rondo Capriccioso for Violin
Marlos Nobre: Poema III for Cello and Strings
Ludwig van Beethoven: Triple Concerto
César Franck: Symphonic Variations for Piano and Orchestra
Maurice Ravel: Boléro
“Newman's magnificently resonant cello, Kaplan's soaring violin at its sweetest, and Weiss' piano in gently rhapsodic mode gave the music a special bloom, exquisite, ardent, and fresh.”
It's a rare treat to hear a trio of internationally acclaimed guest artists perform with an orchestra and an even rarer treat to also hear each of the trio members as soloists with the orchestra. The Weiss-Kaplan-Newman Trio (piano, violin and cello) will perform Beethoven's great Triple Concerto and then take individual turns with the orchestra in works of Saint-Saëns (violin and orchestra), Nobre (cello and orchestra) and Franck (piano and orchestra). The concert will conclude with Ravel's incomparable Bolero.
