Today’s youth are the musicians and concertgoers of the future. The NSO invites young people aged 8 to 14 to join the Youth Club for a season of music and exploration. Membership to the Youth Club includes tickets to concerts, special events, and opportunities to meet and chat with visiting artists and members of the orchestra. Past events have included a “crawl” through a giant pipe organ, backstage tours, drumming circles, as well as hands-on workshops covering handbells, steel pan, and guitar and lute construction. We engage our members more deeply with music, through “you-program-the-concert” activities, mini-reviews following concerts, and “Bring-A-Friend” concerts, where members get to share their enthusiasm for music with friends. Applications are available in September for each upcoming NSO concert season. For further information or to receive an application contact, Brody Smith.
