Other program components

  • Masterclasses and workshops
    • Why not request a school or studio visit by an NSO musician, guest artist, and/or our principal conductor Marc David? Maybe you would like to take a group of students to attend a guest artist masterclass at MUN School of Music? Or even participate through live stream?
  • Pre-concert Prelude Performances 
    • If you have a student or a group who would like to perform a prelude performance, why not showcase them at one of the Masterworks Series concerts! Each cameo performance will be approximately 15 minutes in length and will take place in the upper concourse.
  • Matinée ‘Play-In/Sing-In Jams’ with NSO Musicians and Conductor 
    • School music groups, community music groups, and private studio students can participate in our two special “Play-In/Sing-In Jam Sessions” on January 29 and 30, 2019. Students will perform a unique arrangement of Orff’s “O Fortuna” which can be accessed in our 2018-2019 materials section, now available.
