School Visits

NSO musicians and our conductor visit schools to introduce students to the world of classical music.


The Play-in/Sing-In Jam Session brings over 500 students together to play and sing a chosen selection with members of the NSO based on rep from the current season.

Prelude Concerts

Schools, community groups and individuals have the opportunity to perform at Prelude shows prior to NSO concerts.

School Group Rates

School groups and community music groups can purchase tickets for NSO concerts at a special group discount.

Programs at The Rooms

The NSO and The Rooms offer both in person and virtual interactive education modules which are included as part of the Learning Programs at The Rooms and the Open Minds Program. These programs are available for classroom teachers, music teachers, and community groups.

Library Outreach Program

The NSO has partnered with the NL Public Library to present the Books & Music series for community members and other events throughout the season. We introduce and demonstrate various musical instruments that community members can borrow and check out from the Public Library Musical Instrument Lending program.

Youth Ambassador Program

NSO Youth Ambassadors attend NSO concerts and events act as a focal point for meeting young people, guest artists and NSO musicians during concerts. The Ambassadors usually write a blog on their experiences.

Each year we reach out to a local school to find a student or two with an interest in music to become the NSO Youth Ambassador for the season.

Our Youth Ambassador attends all four Masterworks concerts and writes a blog about their experience. The Youth Ambassador also meets with youth in our audience on the ACC upper concourse during intermission to discuss the concert with them. Be sure to check this page often for the NSO’s Youth Ambassador’s blogs throughout the season.

CDLI Distance Education Sessions

Working with Memorial University, NSO musicians offer digital learning sessions using distance learning technology.
