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 in session! Students are using 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. The NBSO’s 2016 Young People’s Concert will feature these compositions in the World Premiere performance of Adaptations in Motion.

During the in-school interactive assembly performance with NBSO musicians at Assawompset Elementary School in Lakeville, Madison composed a melody that moves in a jumping motion. Very impressive! Check back soon to see our next featured student composer. Learn more about Learning in Concert!

Be a Ceiling Supporter!

Be A Ceiling Supoorter!

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!
