Education & Outreach

Education and Outreach is a large part of the NSO’s vision. The Education and Outreach program is a diverse, comprehensive program which brings NSO musicians into schools and community programs, in person and virtually, as well as bringing schools and community groups to concerts and other activities with the NSO. As part of the education piece, the NSO creates learning materials for educators to use. All of our learning materials, including our extensive library of NSO arrangements, listening activities, PowerPoint presentations, activity sheets, videos, audio, accompaniment recordings and curriculum outcome documents are available for free! Materials are matched to NL Department of Education Music Curriculum outcomes.
