On Location

On Location is one of North State Symphony’s Community & Classroom engagement programs, and is dedicated to the idea of sharing great classical music outside of the concert hall.  

Our musicians, conductor, and/or special guest artists visit over 15 schools and 15 retirement communities each season to talk about what it's like to be a professional musician and to play and answer questions about their instruments.  Please Contact Us if you'd like to schedule an On Location visit!

New!  VIRTUAL On Location!
