2020-21 Youth Concerts

CONVERSATIONS - FOR SCHOOLS!

Week of March 22nd, 2021:  Youth Concerts for Young People and Little Ones!

During the entire week of March 22nd, this season's all-new and all-virtual Youth Concerts will be available in several different formats, from pre-recorded/on-demand, to specially scheduled live sessions with Maestro Seaton visiting classrooms and students in their homes virtually.

This season's youth concert theme is "Conversations". The concerts will feature NSS musicians playing excerpts from the music performed at our February 18th concert with introductions about their instruments and the pieces they'll perform, in specially created videos designed to educate, inform, and entertain. Maestro Scott Seaton will curate the variety of videos for our audiences and take live questions from students in their classrooms.
