"Youth Celebration Month" in March kicked off with special youth-oriented editions of our "Just Ask!" interview series accompanied by Watch Parties / YouTube Premiere performances. Check them out below!
On March 10th and 11th, Maestro Scott Seaton interviewed a past winner of North State Symphony's Young Artist Awards (YAA) and two youth orchestra members, as they reflected and reminisced on their experiences performing with North State Symphony. The discussions were followed by reprise video footage of their concert performances. These young musicians' stories and performances will prove inspiring not only to their peers, but to those of all ages who appreciate the dedication and passion that are the hallmarks of classical music artists of all ages.
