2020-21 Youth Concerts

Our youth concert videos for Young People and Little Ones are now available on-demand, see links below!

On March 22nd-26th, North State Symphony presented all-new videos in specially scheduled live sessions with Maestro Seaton visiting classrooms and students in their homes virtually.

This season's youth concert theme was "Conversations". The concerts featured NSS musicians playing a variety of classical music excerpts, plus introductions about their instruments and the pieces performed.  These specially created virtual concerts were aimed at educating, informing, and entertaining young people - from pre-school to high school.
